Commonwealth Dual Enrollment
The Commonwealth Dual Enrollment Partnership (CDEP) provides opportunities for Massachusetts high school students to take college-level courses at a discounted price and earn credit toward high school completion and their future college degrees. Classes are offered on campus and at the high schools.
Concurrent Enrollment Courses Offered at the High Schools
College credit courses offered at high schools allow students not only to earn college credits, but create a transcript and save time and money. A variety of college level courses can be delivered at the high schools or online. Students must meet all course pre-requisite or co-requisites, if required. Students can earn from 3 to 15 college credits while still in high school. Most of the courses offered fit the "MassTransfer Block" which satisfies general education/distribution/core requirements across MA public higher education institutions. Please contact the Manager of Educational Partnerships, Christina Hebert, for details on concurrent enrollment opportunities.
Process for Concurrent Enrollment Courses
- The high school staff meets with QCC's Manager of Educational Partnerships to determine scheduling, course offerings, and costs.
- Students should take the Math and English Accuplacer to determine eligibility for college-level course work. QCC will provide free testing at the high school. Please schedule an appointment (Use the Access Code: qcc)
- Students enrolling in QCC courses offered at their high schools have to complete the Concurrent Enrollment Registration Form. Please email or mail the course registration form to Christina Hebert or Tracy Merchant
The grading policy for QCC credit courses taken in high schools is the same as any QCC credit course taken online or at the college. See page 45 of the QCC Catalog for the details of the "Assessment of Learning".
