These courses allow students to simultaneously earn high school and college credit, advancing them towards their diploma and their undergraduate degree at the same time. Middlesex Community College, our dual enrollment partner, awards the undergraduate credits, and they are accepted by all state colleges and universities as well as an ever-growing number of private institutions.
In order to be eligible for enrollment in these courses, students need to meet several Minuteman-specific criteria, including teacher recommendation, a minimum 93% attendance rate, a minimum 2.5 GPA, and a final grade of at least 85% in the content area of the dual enrollment course (e.g. students interested in Physics I in their junior year need at least an 85% final grade in their sophomore science course). In addition to the above criteria, Middlesex requires that students earn a qualifying score of 480 on the Evidence Based Reading and Writing portion of the PSAT or SAT.
