Transcript Frequently Asked Questions

Will I benefit by transcribing TCC college credits?
If you are planning to enter or have been accepted in the same college technical program as you earned your credit, you need to transcript the credit immediately after graduation. For example, you earned credit for your high school Culinary Arts class and you’ve been accepted in the Culinary Arts program. This is especially important because the credit you earned is a program pre-requisite class or a first semester program requirement.

If you are planning to enter or have been accepted in a different college technical program, please contact your high school advisor or contact the Office of Advanced Opportunities at NIC (208) 769-5964.

What is an articulation agreement?
It is an agreement between North Idaho College (or another technical college) and a high school to award college credit for high school courses which are considered to be an equivalent to a college course. Generally, high school students must take more than one high school class in order to earn articulated Technical Competency Credit.

Why do Technical Competency credits cost $10 per credit, while Dual Credit costs $65 per credit?
Technical Competency courses are high school courses, taught by high school instructors. The courses are considered to be an equivalent to a college course but are not college courses. Dual credit courses are college courses taught by college faculty, either in the high school or on campus.
