Advanced Placement Courses
Advanced Placement courses are those which are sponsored by the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) for which high school students can obtain college credit through the appropriate CEEB Advanced Placement Examination. These courses relate specifically to those students who have shown achievement in specific areas beyond the normal course of study. A student interested in an Advanced Placement Examination should confer with a school counselor.

Postsecondary Enrollment Act
Colorado State Law provides the opportunity for qualified secondary students (eleventh and twelfth graders) in Aurora Public Schools to enroll, under certain circumstances, in state institutions of higher education. Upon successful completion of the courses, the District will reimburse the student for the credit. Students who are interested in this option must complete an “intent” to enroll form during high school registration or 60 days prior to the first day of college classes. For additional information and procedures, please contact a building administrator or counselor.

College Credit Opportunities at Pickens Technical College
College credit is available for many programs offered at Pickens Technical College. Agreements allow students to transfer credits earned for Pickens Tech certificates toward an associate degree conferred by the respective community college. Students should consult an academic advisor for further information and consult the transfer guides and catalogs of the respective institutions.

Students who desire to complete an Associate of Applied Science Degree Program must complete the technical classes for a designated occupational certificate at Pickens Tech and general education and/or other degree requirements at the participating community college from which the degree is earned.

Call 303-344-4910 for more information or visit www.pickenstech.org.
