How Early College Works
Start Your College Education NOW!
Early college courses give high school students a jumpstart on their college education while helping to build the aspirations, skills, and confidence that will help them succeed after graduation.
Take Free College Courses
Early college courses are completely free to students enrolled in Lowell High School—all costs are paid by local funding, state programs, and private grants.
Earn High School and College Credit
Early college students earn credit from both Lowell High School and Middlesex Community College—in other words, students earn double credit for every course they successfully complete.
Transfer Credits After Graduation
Early college credits are real college credits and can be transferred to colleges or universities throughout the United States.
Receive One-on-One Support
All early college students and their families receive personalized advice and mentoring from a support staff that will guide them through every step of the process.
Participate in Extracurricular Activities
Early college students will not only be able to take classes at Middlesex Community College’s downtown campus—they will also be able to participate in on-campus programs and activities just like full-time college students.
