Career Pathways Articulation Agreement

Career Pathways Articulation Agreement is between the State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF), the School District of Manatee County, and the Sarasota School District. 

The Agreement provides at no cost to eligible students, college credit for eligible classes in the Certificate and Associate in Science (A.S.) Degree programs.  Instructors from SCF, the high schools and the technical colleges, along with local employers, review the curriculum and agree on what courses can be given college credit.

As a student of a Sarasota or Manatee County school, you may have taken one or more career, technical or academy classes at your high school or technical college.  Through a career pathways articulation agreement between State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) and the local school districts, students can receive college credit for the work they have completed. 

If you continue your career path within the same field, the credits that you earn now as a high school student, can be applied to a Certificate and/or an Associate in Science Degree program at SCF.  

You pay no tuition for the credits you receive through this agreement. Apply today!
