So What Does “Articulated” Mean Anyway?

“Articulated” is a complicated way of saying “this thing is basically the same as that thing.” So an “articulated course” is a high school course that’s basically the same as a course we offer
at Forsyth Tech, and if you take that course in high school and get a B or better, we’ll give you credit for it when you come to Forsyth Tech. A VOCATS score of 93 is required for technical courses.
