This program is 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. We are pleased to offer a Dual Enrollment Program during our fall and spring semesters.

You are able to enroll in available courses that meet your high school graduation requirements. You must begin in a fall semester, as we do not accept new students to begin in the spring semester.

If you have participated in the fall semester, you will receive information from Amanda in regards to your next steps to register for Spring 2021 classes.  If you participated during your junior year, you must reapply to continue in your senior year. If you have additional questions, please contact Amanda Egesi at Aegesi@fitchburgstate.edu or Andrew Goodwin at Agoodwi7@fitchburgstate.edu.
