Dual Enrollment is a unique opportunity for high achieving secondary school students enrolled in a public or private Massachusetts high school.It allows students seeking more rigorous coursework to earn academic credit at both their high school and at Fitchburg State University simultaneously. Students must have a 3.0 GPA or higher in order to be accepted into the program.
Dual enrollment students can take up to 4 courses here at Fitchburg State to fulfill their high school graduation requirements. Courses are offered at a highly discounted rate of $100 per credit which totals to $300 per course. As a reminder, accepted dual enrollment students are not guaranteed placement into specific courses due to seat availability. Dual enrollment students cannot take the following course: graduate, evening, any course that requires a prerequisite.
We are pleased to offer a Dual Enrollment Program during our fall and spring semesters only. You must begin in a fall semester, as we do not accept students to begin in the spring semester.
If you participated in dual enrollment at Fitchburg State during your junior year, you must still reapply to be reconsidered to continue in your senior year.
