High School/ROP Articulation
High Schools/ROP articulation provides a legal process to align curriculum and instruction providing a seamless career pathway transition between courses, grades and schools at the high school, community college and college/university levels. The Tri-Valley area is fortunate to have several of these types of agreements between Las Positas College, the Tri-Valley ROP and the three High School Districts (Livermore, Dublin & Pleasanton).
These articulation agreements create sequences of progressive, non-duplicated education leading to technical skill proficiency, a credential, a certificate, and/or a degree in a wide range of fields and careers. Such agreements include "credit by exam" to receive college credit for rigorous coursework taken at the high school level (separate from AP classes). Through the credit by examination process, high school students may receive credit at the college level for articulated courses.
