Vocational/Technical Dual Creditor Articulated Courses
San Angelo ISD offers many career and technical courses that a student may take to earn vocational/technical dual credit or articulated credit. Dual credit courses offered to students in San Angelo ISD are college-level career and technical courses taken by high school students for which they receive high school and college credit at the same time. Howard College teachers or high school college-approved instructors teach these courses. Dual credit is available for students in grades 11-12 who are in good academic standing. High school counselors will provide specific eligibility requirements. Grades are awarded in the same way as college students who take the same courses. Howard College awards credit for a dual credit course immediately after successful completion of the course. Credit for articulated courses is given at graduation from high school. Vocational/technical dual credit courses are tuition free to students in San Angelo ISD.
