This page contains information about partnerships between postsecondary institutions and KSDE. It contains links to all Statewide Articulation Agreements, a link to the guide for Creating An Articulation Agreement, and information about Excel in CTE (formerly Senate Bill 155).
Excel in CTE, or the Governor’s CTE Bill, was passed into law on July 1, 2012. The main purpose of the bill is to stimulate growth in Career & Technical Education at both the secondary and post-secondary level in Kansas. The Kansas workforce will increasingly demand a more highly-technical and highly-skilled worker and Senate Bill 155 is aimed at meeting those future demands.
For more information please visit the Excel in CTE webpage.
Statewide Articulation Agreements are created to enable Kansas High School Graduates to have a smooth transition from their high school Career & Technical Education Pathway to the corresponding Occupational Program at the postsecondary level.
Any Kansas high school graduate who meets the requirements of an articulation agreement may utilize the agreement to obtain college credit, scholarships, tuition waivers, or other benefits as stated in each agreement.
Please visit our Statewide Articulation Agreements page for a complete listing of all the current agreements within the state.
