College Credit & Professional Certifications
Jackson Area Career Center programs offer the potential to earn free college credit at several recognized universities and community colleges. You can earn these credits -- for FREE -- by mastering specific standards that are taught in Career Center programs. Our counselors or instructors can explain these standards and credits to you. We'll also help you get the information you need to have these credits applied to your future college transcript should you choose to attend one of the colleges that have articulation agreements with the Career Center. See the document below for the colleges and universities that we have articulation agreements with. For more details, please refer to the "Free College Credit Opportunities" link on each program's page.
The Career Center can also help you take -- and pass -- state and national certification exams! You do the work -- we'll help you get the certification! Some Career Center programs offer an opportunity to earn professional certifications through government and/or professional organizations. Some of these programs require passing an examination or other requirements. Again, check with your high school counselor, Career Center counselors or program instructors for complete information.
