(a) For purposes of this section, the term "articulated high school course" means a high school course or courses that the faculty in the appropriate discipline, using policies and procedures approved by the curriculum committee established pursuant to section 55002, have determined to be comparable to a specific community college course.

(b) The governing board of a community college district may adopt policies to permit articulated high school courses to be applied to community college requirements in accordance with this section. Articulated high school courses may be accepted in lieu of comparable community college courses to partially satisfy:

(1) requirements for a certificate program, including the total number of units required for the certificate; or,

(2) The major or area of emphasis requirements in a degree program.

(c) Articulated high school courses used to partially satisfy certificate or major/area of emphasis requirements shall be clearly noted as such on the student's academic record. Notations of community college course credit shall be made only if community college courses are successfully completed or if credit is earned via credit by examination.

(d) Except through credit by examination, as defined in section 55753, high school courses may not be used to satisfy:

(1) The requirement of section 55063 that students complete at least 60 semester or 90 quarter units in order to receive an associate degree; or,

(2) Any general education requirement for the associate degree established by the district.
