Students below the traditional age-level for college are welcome at Massasoit Community College and must comply with the following procedures in order to register for credit and non-credit courses, with the exception of classes/activities specifically designed for youth learners; for example, Sports Camps, Summer Science Camps, MCAS tutoring, Robotics, and other cohort programming.
Youth learners, those who have not yet reached the age of sixteen (16), will be considered for credit and non-credit courses on a case-by-case basis. The student must obtain Youth Learner approval from either the Early College office or the Dean of Students office, before registering for credit or non-credit courses.
The College reserves the right to limit or deny enrollment of a student under the age of sixteen (16) in credit or non-credit courses based on its case-by-case consideration of a variety of factors, including but not limited to: the student’s maturity level, life experience, placement test scores, pre-requisites, prior education, course content, instructional methodology, and risks or requirements associated with a particular course(s). A Youth Learner approval meeting can be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
