Dual Enrollment

Cape Cod Community College strives to work closely with area high schools. Through the Dual Enrollment Program, qualified high school students can earn both high school and college credit. Students can only earn high school credit for dual enrollment courses if they are credit deficient or are choosing the Early Semester Option.  Other students are encouraged to take dual enrollment courses for purposes of enrichment.  When a dual enrollment course is taken for enrichment, it is listed on the student’s transcript but does not contribute to credit requirements and is not calculated into a student’s GPA.


Eligible students must be at least 16 years of age and be a junior or a senior in high school, have a GPA of 3.0 or better, and be recommended by their high school counselor.  An alternative Dual Enrollment program is available for juniors and seniors who have a GPA between 2.0 and 2.9. These students must demonstrate the ability to do college level course work through earning the required score on a placement test administered at Cape Cod Community College.


For information about either dual enrollment option, students should make an appointment to see their school counselor and then seek the approval of the principal.
