ARTICULATION AGREEMENT PROCEDURES
Owens Community College recognizes that students enrolled in certain vocational programs may
achieve competencies in these programs which are similar to courses offered at Owens. The intent
of this articulation plan is to recognize student achievement in vocational programs by providing for
waiver of credit. A maximum of sixteen semester hours of credit may be awarded via articulation.
Student applicants must have earned a "B" or 3.0 average in their vocational program curriculum.
Students with a lower average may be considered upon the recommendation of the vocational
school, but may be required to take a proficiency exam.
Since the process may be initiated by or involve various school officials, procedures may be
modified as long as appropriate data and signatures are provided. Also, in the absence of the
academic or skill area teacher (during summer, etc.) another school official may affirm to the
student's competencies if they have knowledge that this is the case.
1. The initiating person obtains an Application For Credit By Waiver form from their high
school counselor, Owens Office of the Registrar, Enrollment Services Office or online at
https://www.owens.edu/records_reg/waiver_hs_articulation.pdf, has the student Part I,
STUDENT IDENTIFICATION, and gives the form to the academic or skill area teacher
who will complete Part III, SECONDARY SCHOOL RECOMMENDATION.
2. The Application is then given to the school counselor to complete Part II, STUDENT
DATA. As per school procedures, the vocational director or his/her designate signs Part II.
3. The form is sent to OFFICE OF THE REGISTRAR, OWENS COMMUNITY
COLLEGE, P O BOX 10,000, OREGON RD, TOLEDO, OH 43699-1947.
4. The Office of the Registrar forwards the evaluation form to the appropriate college
representative responsible for the academic courses in question.
5. The college representative evaluates the request in terms of the vocational teacher's
recommendations and remarks and completes Part IV, OWENS COLLEGE
RECOMMENDATION. The student may be invited to visit with the college
representative to arrive at a course waiver recommendation. The recommendation is
recorded in the "Owens College's Recommended" portion of the form, signed by the college
representative, and sent back to the Office of the Registrar.
