College Credit at the MACTC

The Muskegon Area Career Tech Center (MACTC) offers two ways to earn FREE college credit while in high school; articulation or direct credit.

What is Articulation?

Articulation is an agreement between the Career Tech Center and specific colleges/universities. Students receive college credit for classes completed and skills learned; credit does not transfer between colleges and universities. More information on articulated credit, what schools offer articulated credit, and how to apply can be found here .

What is Direct Credit?

Direct credit courses allow tech center students to enroll as college students and receive a transcript for college credit that is accepted at most colleges and universities in Michigan. These courses are usually taught by teachers who are adjunct college faculty.
