Why should I articulate my high school course?

What if I didn't get a good grade in the high school course and don’t want the grade on my college transcript?

If you don’t want the grade you received in high school on your college transcript, then do not apply for articulation and the class will not be on your college transcript, but will still remain on your high school transcript.
