Tech Prep is an articulation agreement between the Anchorage School District and post-secondary education institutions such as the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA), University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) or various apprenticeships*. ASD students can earn lower division college credit when successfully completing high school tech/prep courses or other advancements with the trade organizations. With the ASD-UAA articulations, a small registration fee and successful completion of the ASD course will earn students a credit recorded on their permanent college transcript. College credits provide a head start toward a post-secondary certification or degree, are transferable to other universities or colleges, and activate the services for prospective students provided by the University’s Advising and Counseling Office. Tech Prep agreements with other institutions or organizations may vary. The following King Career Center courses presently have Tech Prep agreements:
