Continuing Education (CE) articulation is an agreement to award semester credit hours toward a credit course for successful completion of certain CE courses. Students are responsible for requesting credit through the prior learning assessment process. Credits are awarded only after the student meets PLA criteria and CE to Credit articulation requirements:

  1. CE course is part of an articulation agreement (linked or non-linked)
  2. Grade of "S" in CE course(s)
  3. Admitted into a Lone Star College credit program
  4. Complete prerequisites for credit course (review exceptions to the prerequisite requirement)

Types of CE to Credit Articulation

Linked Courses

Linked Continuing Education courses are select CE courses with learning experiences identical to credit courses. Since 2005, linked courses have been identified as "combined" sections in the class search. CE courses must be linked at the time a student completes the course to receive credit.

Non-linked Courses

Non-linked Continuing Education courses consist of learning experiences comparable to a credit course. In addition to completing the CE course(s), students may be required to demonstrate technical skills and/or provide industry certification. An agreement to award credit must be in effect during the semester a student completes the CE course to receive credit. See below for a complete list of agreements to articulate CEUs to semester credit hours.
