Placement by High School GPA

If you are a student from a Massachusetts high school, you may be qualified for BHCC’s GPA Placement Project. This project places you into certain college-level English and Math courses based on your high school GPA and exempts you from taking the College Placement Test (CPT) or Accuplacer.*

To qualify for GPA placement, you must:

  • Be from a high school in Massachusetts and identify as one of the following: (1) a currently enrolled and active student in 12th grade; (2) graduated in 2015, 2016, or 2017;
  • have an overall high school GPA of 2.7 or higher (if you already graduated) or a cumulative GPA of 2.7 or higher at the end of 11th grade (if you are currently in the 12th grade).

To be considered for GPA placement, you will need to do the following upon acceptance into BHCC:

  • Submit a copy of your official high school transcript that shows your cumulative GPA, or a copy of any other official, signed document of proof of your cumulative GPA for evaluation on or before September 1, 2017. You can submit your document(s) electronically to admissions@bhcc.mass.edu or by fax to 617-228-3481.

Once your transcript or proof of GPA document is reviewed, the Admissions staff will contact you and let you know the next steps.

Can’t submit your transcript/proof of GPA by September 1, but still want to be considered? Go ahead! Transcripts or proofs of GPA submitted after the deadline will still be evaluated.

If you have questions about the GPA placement project, please email Maleeka Pearson at mlpearso@bhcc.mass.edu.

 

* Although you will not be required to take Accuplacer, you still have the option to take the Math placement test for possible higher placement in Math.
