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 Apprenticeship Programs (*). ASD students can earn lower division college credit when successfully completing high school tech/prep courses or other advancements with the Apprenticeship Programs. With the ASD-UAA articulations, a small registration fee and successful completion of the ASD course will earn students credit which is recorded on their permanent college transcript. College credits provide a head start toward a post-secondary certification or degree and are transferable to other universities or colleges.
