***Students must sit for the entire course to receive credit. Students who go on home instruction or switch courses mid-year must drop or withdraw from the credit option by the appropriate MC deadline. Students who are not dropped from the course will receive a grade of a “W”.
Beginning with the 2021-2022 School year, the Middlesex College General Liberal Arts degree will be the eligible program offered from the Edison School District. Students will have the option of obtaining MC credits by enrolling in specific courses at EHS. An application must be completed and payment made to MC for each course the student is pursuing for the related college credits. Students may take the dual-enrollment course for high school credit only or work towards the full Associates' Degree by completing the required 60 credits (including 15 credits of Residency directly through Middlesex College).
