Tech Prep is a statewide program funded by Carl D. Perkins Tech Prep Education funds. The program is based on common standards and guidelines for awarding technical-program college credit for high school coursework and to prepare students for careers in high-demand, high-skilled, high-wage occupations.

Texoma Tech Prep provides the coordination link between NCTC and area high schools to align post-secondary Workforce Education Course Manual (WECM) courses with the secondary Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) courses.

Articulation agreements between Independent School Districts in the Texoma Tech Prep Consortium and NCTC allow high school students to earn articulated credit for up to two years from the date of their high school graduation. College credits for courses approved for articulation that are taught by the high school for immediate high school credit and potential college credit will be awarded at the time a student enrolls at NCTC in an associate degree or certificate program. Students are required to earn a B or better in the articulated course, complete a petition, and provide a completed high school transcript to Texoma Tech Prep
