Your Future, Your Choice—Start Earning College Credits as a High School Student

A transcripted credit course is an articulation agreement between a high school and Mid-State in which students may receive both high school credit and technical college credit for specific classes. Upon completion of a transcripted credit course, students receive an official Mid-State transcript.

Transcripted credit (also known as "technical college course credit" or "dual credit") is a Mid-State course taught by a WTCS certified high school teacher at the high school.
