Bay State College Dual Enrollment Program

Bay State College is pleased to announce the launch of our Dual Enrollment Program- an exciting and revolutionary opportunity for high school junior or senior year students to earn high school and college credit simultaneously, as a Bay State College student!

Why participate in Bay State College Dual Enrollment?

  • Explore potential majors and learn more about the college experience
  • Obtain academic credit towards your Bay State College degree
  • Explore courses not offered in high school
  • Gain confidence in the ability to succeed in a college setting

Students may take classes at Bay State College by attending courses during our day, evening, or online programs. Each class, taught by college-level professors with industry experience, is eight to sixteen weeks in length, while high school Advanced Placement (AP) classes often require an entire year to complete. Students enrolled in this program earn official Bay State College credit.

Who can participate?

Bay State College’s Dual Enrollment Program is open to high school juniors and seniors at approved, participating high schools. All students must remain in good academic standing, in accordance with their high school and meet Bay State College’s Dual Enrollment Program requirements:
