IMPORTANT: In each potential pathway, the ability to transfer credits from one program level to the next is dependent on a variety of factors. Statewide articulation agreements may assist in these efforts but are not available for all potential career pathways. Ongoing guidance from academic career advisors and supervisors throughout your education and training pathway is recommended.

Note: Entrepreneurial skills are frequently incorporated in different Career Pathways programs to help students prepare to launch and contribute to successful enterprises of all types.
