Transferring to a 4 Year College/University
As a member of the Massachusetts Public Higher Education System, Quinsigamond Community College maintains strong ties with all of Massachusetts' public four-year colleges and universities, and offers the Joint Admissions and Tuition Advantage programs to support students as they continue their higher education goals.
We also sponsor articulation agreements with a number of private four-year colleges and universities locally and regionally. These relationships permit our students to transfer to a range of academic programs and institutions, and advance toward their four-year degrees more easily, quickly, and affordably.
The Joint Admissions Program
The Joint Admissions Program guarantees admission to the Massachusetts state
college or University of Massachusetts campus of your choice. To be eligible,
students must be enrolled in an approved Joint Admissions program and planning
to graduate with as Associate's Degree, maintain a cumulative grade point
average of 2.5 or higher, and submit the Intent to Enroll form to the desired
college(s) during the final academic semester at QCC.
The Tuition Advantage Program
The Tuition Advantage Program allows qualified Joint Admissions Program graduates to get a 33% tuition reduction for up to two years when they transfer to a Massachusetts state college or any one of the four UMass campuses. Eligible applicants must be enrolled in the Joint Admissions Program and have a GPA of 3.0 or better at the time of transfer.
Articulation Agreements are available in a number of programs at QCC. These agreements clearly identify (or articulate) the courses to be taken at QCC to assure easy transfer of credits. Even if QCC does not currently have a formal agreement with a college of interest, you should know that colleges typically grant transfer credit for QCC college level courses which are passed with a "C" or higher and which fit the accepting college's curriculum.
