Dual Enrollment for High School Students

Consistent with the mission of the Department of Higher Education, Cape Cod Community College seeks to work closely with the high schools in the service area. Programs and courses offered to high school students can help meet the diverse needs of today's student population, ease the transition to college level work, and enhance the relationship between the high schools and the College.

Qualified high school students can earn both high school and college credits through the Dual Enrollment Program, authorized in the Education Reform Act of 1993. 

Eligible students include Massachusetts high school students who are 16 years of age or older or homeschooled students who are 16 years of age or older who have a GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or better. The Alternative Dual Enrollment option is available to students with GPA of 2.0 to 2.9 who meet all other dual enrollment requirements.

(Students under the age of 16 need CCCC permission and must complete an UnderAge Student Appeal for Enrollment form, which is available in the Admissions Office. Please call (508) 362-2131 x4311 for more information.)


If you are interested in Dual Enrollment, please speak with your high school guidance counselor for application procedures and referral.
A completed application and high school transcript must be forwarded to the Admissions Office. For questions, or to schedule an appointment after your Dual Enrollment application has been submitted, please contact the Admissions Office.
