The agreements allow Georgia students to earn technical college credits for certain career, technical, and agricultural education (CTAE) courses.

To receive articulated credit from TCSG for any of the six subject areas now eligible, students must successfully complete the identified high school CTAE course or Career Pathway – depending on the articulation agreement – and pass a credentialing assessment.
