Career Pathway Program

The program is based on local articulations with area high schools and each program can award up to 15 hours of free Technical college credit for courses completed in high school. These courses can lead to a certificate or an associate degree at Mountain View College.

Each Career Pathway program is a planned sequence of courses developed cooperatively between school districts and the colleges. (click here for current agreements)

High school students must follow these steps to participate in Career Pathways:
