The MassTransfer Block refers to a set of general education, core, or distribution requirements, consisting of 34 college-level credits:
|9||Behavioral and social sciences||Courses may be in either subject area.|
|9||Humanities and fine arts||Courses may be in either subject area.|
|7||Natural or physical science||Must include at least one course with a lab.|
These credits, when completed together with a 2.0 or higher GPA, fully transfer to any Massachusetts public higher education institution…even if you don’t have your associate degree. These credits also satisfy the general education/distribution/core requirements at any other Massachusetts public higher education institution, with the receiving institution being able to add no more than six additional credits/two courses.
