From signing up for the right courses at a community college to applying to a four-year institution, advisors will help you navigate the complicated transfer process.
MassTransfer is a statewide agreement for students transferring within Massachusetts' community colleges, state universities and University of Massachusetts campuses. With MassTransfer, students who complete the Gen Ed Foundation will have the benefit of satisfying the general education/distribution/core requirements at any other public higher education institution and students who complete an A2B Degree receive the full transfer of credit, guaranteed admission, and a discount based on your final GPA.
If you are not following one of these pathways, you can use the Course Equivalency Database to search for equivalencies between our community colleges, state universities and University of Massachusetts campuses.
Many community colleges have additional transfer agreements with public and private colleges and universities that do not fall under the MassTransfer statewide policy. Review individual campus equivalency guides and talk to an advisor at your current school and the school you'd like to transfer to for more information. You may also want to consider these tips:
