MassTransfer A2B Degree
Associate to Bachelor’s
A college degree can change your life, but rising costs can sink your dreams. Following an A2B Map greatly reduces the sticker price of a State U or UMass bachelor's degree, enabling you to achieve your college dreams with lower student debt.
1. Start at a Community College
The new A2B Maps lay out a set of freshman and sophomore courses in your major so that the credits you earn at your Community College are guaranteed to transfer to a State U or UMass campus and count towards a bachelor's degree.
2. Earn an Associate's Degree
Graduate from your community college with at least a B average and you’ll have guaranteed admission to a State U or UMass to complete your junior & senior years—with no application fees or essays.
3. Finish at a State University or UMass Campus
With four UMass campuses and seven comprehensive State Universities all around the state, plus two specialty colleges in Massachusetts College of Art & Design and Massachusetts Maritime Academy, the perfect place for you to finish your bachelor’s degree is waiting.
4. Launch Your Career with a Bachelor’s Degree!
A2B Maps are available in dozens of the most popular majors, including ones like STEM, Business, and Education that are in high demand among Massachusetts employers.
