Framingham State University is offering Dual Enrollment opportunities for high school juniors and seniors interested in taking freshman-level (100-199) undergraduate courses during the fall 2015 semester. On campus and on-line classes are available.
Several full scholarships covering full tuition and fees for one course per student will be offered. These are provided through a grant from the Commonwealth Dual Enrollment Program (CDEP) of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Additional courses may be taken on a tuition basis for approximately $984 per course.
Dual Enrollment candidates should be 2015-16 high school juniors or seniors with a grade point average of B (3.0) or above, and the support of their high school guidance counselor and/or principal. While not required, students are encouraged to consider courses in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Applicants who will be the first in their immediate family to obtain a four-year college degree and those from low-income households should find the Dual Enrollment experience particularly beneficial.
Undergraduate course listings and descriptions can be found on the Continuing Education link of the Framingham State University web-site (www.framingham.edu). Interested students are encouraged to apply early.
