MassTransfer Program

As a BCC student you can participate in MassTransfer, a statewide program that guarantees admission, tuition reduction, and transfer of credit (each based on final GPA) to the University of Massachusetts and most Massachusetts state colleges.

Just enroll in an linked MassTransfer degree program at BCC and complete your Associate’s degree at BCC with the required GPA. There is no obligation to attend a Massachusetts public college or university. For more information on MassTransfer click here.

MassTransfer offers a variety of benefits to students who graduate as well as to students who transfer without degrees:

  • Guarantees admission, transfer of credit (NOTE: D- grades DO NOT transfer), and tuition reduction to students who graduate in a linked MassTransfer eligible program.
  • Guarantees satisfaction of general education requirements for graduates and non-graduates who meet the MassTransfer Block 

How to Participate

You will need to submit a MassTransfer Application to the four-year college or university you are interested in attending (by March 1 for fall admission and by October 15 for spring admission) to complete the MassTransfer Process.
