Commonwealth Dual Enrollment Partnership

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.

CDEP eases the transition from high school to college, allows students to get a head start on their college careers, and provides meaningful and challenging academic experiences to qualified students who otherwise may not have access to an early college experience.

Student participation in CDEP is at the discretion of the participating institution of higher education, subject to capacity constraints and state appropriation.

* CDEP funded students take their first course free of charge or for a nominal fee. Subsequent course fees are set by the institution. Please contact your local public campus to find out what dual enrollment opportunities and funding is available.

More information on CDEP can be found on their website .
