LINK: http://www.sjrstate.edu/workforce/careerpathways.html

Middle School Students and High School Students:

Continue your studies in College in the same career cluster as your high school career and technical education program or career academy. This efficiently utilizes your time and money by avoiding duplication. Use the Career Pathways system to research career education programs available in high school and college, dual enrollment recommendations and articulation agreements based on earned industry certification. This means you may earn college credit for your certifications.

The Career Pathways scholarship, listed above is not for the AA or Associate in Arts Degree.  The Career Pathways scholarship guarentees the first year of 30 credits and the second year is contingent upon the student meeting the renewal requirements for an Associate in Science or Vocational program, depending on what the student has been awarded.  If you are unsure if a HS program will count, such as an student in ROTC (which does), please feel free to ask me and I am glad to assist!
