Marshfield High School

The Wisconsin Technical College System has offered dual credit opportunities for high school students for more than 20 years. Marshfield High School celebrated Dual Credit Day on April 30.

Articulation agreements are a way to use high school classes to save time, money and get ahead on college education. Students can earn transcripted credit by enrolling in approved courses and demonstrating knowledge and skills using the accelerated grading scale. A letter grade is posted on an official Mid-State Technical College, or MSTC, transcript and counted toward MSTC's grade point average.

There are 140 juniors and seniors enrolled in transcripted credit courses at MHS. Students can earn advanced standing credit by enrolling in approved courses, demonstrating competencies on a MSTC certificate, and earning a grade of "A" or "B." MHS enrolls 190 students in advanced standing courses such as written communications, metal technology I and II, English III and tech math.
