What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual enrollment is a unique program designed to help qualified high school students take college courses. Dual
enrollment students earn credit toward both high school and college credit. Upon successful completion, most
college-level courses taken at CCCC will transfer to a Massachusetts State college or university with you.
Additionally, courses may transfer to private colleges and universities. All colleges will review your CCCC
academic transcript for transferability of the credits completed at CCCC.
