Day Students Taking SGOCE Courses

Day students are allowed to enroll in SGOCE courses, however, this may impact their bill since full-time day students pay more for every credit beyond 12 credits when any of the credits are SGOCE courses. It is also important to note that payment for SGOCE courses is due at the time of registration. If you have questions about the impact on your student bill, please contact Student Accounts at 978.665.4126 or
