MCC named top choice for high school students statewide
LOWELL — Middlesex Community College has been named the best community college in Massachusetts for Dual Enrollment on the 2022 list of Best Community Colleges in Massachusetts by Intelligent.com.
MCC’s Dual Enrollment program allows high school-aged and homeschooled students to take college-level courses that count toward both a high school diploma and a college degree.
In recognizing programs, Intelligent.com compared 64 programs from 26 universities and colleges statewide with two-year associate degree programs.
As part of its research, the website states it reviewed tuition costs, the number of credits required to graduate and the coursework delivery formats — such as online and in-person.
MCC officials state that Dual Enrollment at Middlesex allows students to complete general college course requirements
and explore majors and possible fields of interest at an affordable price. In Massachusetts, Dual Enrollment students pay a state subsidized rate of $92 per credit versus the $252 current per credit rate.
Prospective students and their families must attend a virtual Dual Enrollment Information Session. For more information or to

Former Pelham, N.H., resident arrested on felony warrant
PELHAM, N.H. — A 36-year-old former resident of Pelham, N.H., turned himself in at the Pelham Police Station on Feb. 18 on a warrant issued by detectives.
Adam Koch, currently of Golden Valley, Ariz., is charged with registration of online identifiers, a felony, according to a Pelham Police Department press release.
According to the complaint against Koch provided by police, Koch knowingly did not report to police within five days after the first use of two social media accounts he had set up, as he is required by law.
The charge stemmed from a six-month-long online investigation that took place while Koch was living in Pelham, police said.
Koch has a long history of sexual assault and failure to report convictions dating back to 2006. Most recently, Koch pleaded guilty to felony failure to comply with sex-offender registration requirements while living in Pelham in 2018.
Police said at the time that he failed to disclose new work and social-media information to police.
For his latest charge, Koch is set to return to the Hillsborough County Superior Court in Nashua at a later date.
