Early College Program at North Shore Community College

North Shore Community College is excited to begin registration for its Spring 2022 Early College Program on the Lynn campus located at 300 Broad Street – 01901. The Early College Program allows Lynn English students to take actual college classes with a professor and earn college credits, thus potentially saving students time and money when they graduate from high school. The classes are offered during the afternoon and evening, and they will run from January to May.

There are a limited number of spots for each class, so spots are “first come, first served.” The classes are open to students who meet the proficiency requirements listed below.

To view the Spring 2022 classes, click NSCC Early College Flyer. Most classes will have fixed meeting times on Zoom. Please Note: Course CAD 105 will be meeting in person on Tuesdays on the Lynn campus and meeting remotely on Thursdays.

**A COVID-19 vaccination is required for students attending in-person classes for Spring 2022 and for anyone coming to campus for in-person services. Students must complete a specific form to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated or to request a reasonable accommodation.**

For the Spring 2022 classes, there will be an online application. If you are interested in the Early College Program, please fill out the interest form. This is NOT the actual application. After this form is submitted, North Shore Community College will send you the link to the online application and be in touch with the next steps.

Proficiency Requirements:
Some classes may require students to meet proficiency in order to register. Students can meet these requirements in a few ways:
• By being a senior with a 2.7 GPA or higher
• SAT or PSAT scores of 550+ reading & writing/540+ math
• ACT scores of 22 or higher
• Crosswalk agreements: NSCC has developed curriculum alignment agreements with several school districts. When a student’s transcripts are received, a staff member will compare it with the curriculum alignment agreement (if applicable)

If you do NOT meet these requirements, you will need to schedule an Accuplacer assessment online through the college. NSCC will contact you directly to set up an Accuplacer assessment if required, after your application has been processed.

Please contact YOUR guidance counselor with any questions.
