Westfield State University’s Dual Enrollment program offers qualified Massachusetts high school students the opportunity enroll at Westfield State University in a part-time course of study to earn credits towards high school graduation while earning college credits concurrently.  Dual Enrollment students are registered for approved courses on a space and funding availability basis.  All eligible students must have a “B” (2.5) or better grade point average and must be recommended and approved by their guidance counselor as having the ability and maturity to benefit from college level coursework and a college environment.  Students wishing to return for a second or subsequent semester must maintain a “B” (3.0) grade point average in the Westfield State University coursework attempted in addition to maintaining a “B” (2.5) or better grade point average in their high school courses. Students can only take classes from Westfield State University’s Common Core and should consider 100 level classes.

All participants will be commuting students and are responsible for their own transportation; bus pass or parking permit. Furthermore students are responsible for purchasing textbooks and other instructional materials. Grades will be made available online to students upon completion of the semester. Students are responsible for acquiring and keeping track of their student number (CWID) and password to access their grades and schedules. Transcripts of all completed work will be maintained by the college and made available to students upon written and signed request. See further information on signature page.

Students wishing to participate in this program must meet all CDEP eligibility criteria’s, which can be found at http://www.mass.edu/strategic/read_cdep.asp.

Students will receive all relevant information and university rules and regulations at this session.
  • Coursework taken as a Dual Enrollment student is a permanent part of the student’s college and high school record, regardless of the final grade.
  • Students needing to withdraw from a course must follow the withdrawal procedure. Students must come to the Continuing Education Office (CGCE) to complete a withdrawal form. Failure to do so could lead to a late withdrawal fee or a permanent final grade of ‘F’ on the student’s college transcript. Please contact CGCE with any questions; 413-572-8020
