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.
- Completing the MassTransfer Block does not guarantee admission; visit the Department of Higher Education's website for admissions information.
- Certain majors may have additional requirements, which you would need to complete.
- Students matriculating in fall 2009, as well as currently enrolled students, may accumulate courses leading toward the completion of an associate degree eligible for MassTransfer or the MassTransfer Block. The policy benefits apply to students who plan to transfer for the fall 2010 semester or later.
