Berlin Brothersvalley High School
Allegany College of Maryland
PROGRAM: It is the intent of this agreement to articulate the Web Design program offered by Berlin Brothersvalley High School (BBHS) with the Computer Science and Technology program offered by Allegany College of Maryland (ACM).
ELIGIBLE COLLEGE CREDIT: Students will be eligible to receive three (3) articulated college credits for Computer Science and Technology 191, Web Page Development, (COMP-191) under the conditions specified below. Articulated credit for COMP-191 will apply to the following Computer Science and Technology Associate of Applied Science degree options: Network, Programming, and Web Development. Articulated credit also applies to the Application User Specialist Certificate. At this time, Web Page Development Letter of Recognition is also included. Students may enroll in any program without duplication of course work.
REQUIREMENTS: The BBHS student must meet the following requirements: A student must complete Web Page Design I and Web Page Design II at BHHS with a "C" grade or higher in each course. The student must enroll in the ACM Computer Science and Technology degree program within two years of graduation. Students must successfully complete the course prerequisite of COMP-101 Introduction to Computer Literacy or pass the COMP-101 challenge exam before credit for COMP-191 is posted. Students must contact the Program Chair to schedule the challenge exam at least two weeks before beginning their first semester at ACM. Students wishing to obtain credit for COMP-191 must initiate the process by obtaining an Articulation Credit form from the BBHS Computer Science teacher. These forms are provided by ACM and must be completed by the BBHS teacher. 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 the Computer Science and Technology program. 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 articulated credit.
