JWU Articulation Agreement

The Articulation Agreement between the Old Colony Culinary Arts Tech Prep Program and Johnson and Wales University has been renewed. Students qualifying for the program receive the equivalent of one term of transfer credits (15 quarter credit hours) when enrolled in Johnson & Wales University Freshman Advanced Study Track Program.

The successful completion of a 3-year Culinary Arts Program qualifies Old Colony students for the F.A.S.T. Program.

The Articulation Program is a cooperative venture between Old Colony and Johnson and Wales University to eliminate repetition of training, provide advanced placement opportunities to vocational technical students and to save time by granting advanced placement and college credit for previous learning.

Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School Articulation Agreement Program extends to New England Institute of Technology, Bristol Community College, and Wentworth Institute.
