Transcripted Credit

High school students who successfully complete a transcripted course earn both high school and technical college credit. 

Transcripted credits apply to courses that:

  • Are MPTC courses taught in the high schools using technical college curriculum and textbooks.
  • Are taught by high school teachers.
  • Follow MPTC's grading policies.
  • Require students to meet all course competencies and earn a "C" or higher.
  • Are recorded on the MPTC transcript. (Formal college record)
  • May be transferred to other Wisconsin technical colleges.

How do these agreements benefit you, the student?

  • You can earn credits toward a technical diploma or associate degree while still in high school.
  • You do not pay a fee for the credits earned - textbooks or tuition.
  • If you enroll at MPTC, you will not have to retake the course you already received credit for while still in high school. You save both time and money.
