CAP Q&A - Non credit courses

If a course is offered at the technology center that does not apply to degree requirements for an approved AAS or certificate program at the college must it be articulated and available for college credit through the Cooperative Alliance Program?

No.  If the course does not apply to degree requirements in the associate in applied science or certificate program in an approved Cooperative Agreement Program (CAP), then under the policy it cannot be articulated and transcripted by the college.  

In policy 3.6 Cooperative Alliances Between Higher Education Institutions and Technology Centers, section 3.6.2 defines a Cooperative Agreement Program (CAP) as “a formal, academic program offered by institutions in the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education that includes approved courses taught by a CareerTech technology center and leads to an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree or a college-level certificate in a technical or occupational field.”   

The term “leads to” refers to degree requirements at the college, so only courses that will ensure a student’s completion and graduation from the program are allowed to be articulated under the CAP.

If the college offers the course, but not for college credit, this is another indication that it would not be allowed to be articulated for credit from a technology center if it has no credit bearing impact on the degree requirements of the AAS or certificate program.


Dr Sommers' Flipped Summer Conference Presentations
