Calvary Christian Academy
Allegany College of Maryland
PROGRAM: It is the intent of this agreement to update the articulation agreement between Allegany College of Maryland (ACM) and Calvary Christian Academy (CCA) in the program area of Computer Science and Technology.
ELIGIBLE COLLEGE CREDIT: Students will be eligible to receive three (3) college credits for Computer Science and Technology 101, Computer Literacy, (COMP-101) under the conditions specified below. Articulated credit for COMP-101 may be applied to all computer science degree and certificate programs, and any other associate degrees or certificates that require COMP-101 for graduation. No elective credit will be awarded in any other programs.
REQUIREMENTS: The CCA student must meet the following requirements: A student must successfully complete the CCA Introduction to Computers class their junior or senior year. Students must enroll in an ACM program that lists COMP-101 as a graduation requirement, and they must do so within two (2) years of high school graduation. Students wishing to obtain credit for COMP-101 must initiate the process by obtaining an Articulation Credit form from the CCA Computer teacher. These forms are provided by ACM and must be completed by the CCA teacher. The CCA Computer teacher must complete in the affirmative a competency checklist (provided by ACM) verifying the student's skills in all required areas. It is the student's responsibility to provide these forms to ACM. The student will bring the signed form to his/her ACM Computer Science advisor who is responsible for processing the form with the ACM Admissions/Registration office.
BENEFITS: Articulated credits are posted on the student's ACM transcript after he/she has completed one (minimum) semester at ACM in an associate degree or certificate program that requires COMP-101 for graduation. Credits will be posted as "credit by articulation." Students will receive credit, but no grade, for the articulated course. There will be no effect on the student's college GPA. There will be no tuition or other costs associated with obtaining credit in this manner.
