About the Commonwealth Commitment Program (through MassTransfer)

The Commonwealth Commitment is an innovative college affordability and completion plan to help more Massachusetts students achieve the dream of a college degree.  

Championed by Governor Charlie Baker, the plan commits Massachusetts public colleges and universities to providing a series of financial incentives to students who begin their studies at one of 15 community colleges, earn an associate degree within two and a half years, and then transfer to a state university or University of Massachusetts campus to earn a baccalaureate degree. Students agree to attend college full-time and maintain a 3.0 GPA in return, they receive a freeze on tuition and fees, a 10% rebate at the end of each successfully completed semester, and a full MassTransfer tuition waiver in their third and fourth years at a university.  Students who meet the program requirements will, depending on the transfer pathway and institutions they choose to attend, save an average 40% off the cost of a traditional bachelor’s degree. In fall, 2017, students will be able to choose from among more than 30 degree programs, including popular programs at the specialty schools, the Massachusetts College of Art and the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, in fall 2017.
