MassTransfer 2009 download full description
Students planning to transfer to one of the Massachusetts state-supported colleges or universities are eligible for MassTransfer. MassTransfer provides community college graduates who complete designated associate’s degrees with the benefits of the full transfer and applicability of credit, guaranteed admission (2.5 GPA or higher), and a partial tuition discount (3.0 GPA or higher).
MassTransfer integrates and replaces the Commonwealth Transfer Compact, the Joint Admissions Program, and the Tuition Advantage Program. For full details about the MassTransfer policy, please contact Kathy Maisto in the Academic Advising Center.
Community college students who matriculated prior to fall 2009 and who participate in the Commonwealth Transfer Compact and/or Joint Admissions programs will be required to complete their associate degrees by August 2013 and must matriculate at a Massachusetts state college or University of Massachusetts campus by fall 2014 to receive the benefits of these programs.
Students matriculating in fall 2009 as well as currently enrolled students may accumulate courses leading toward the completion of an approved associate degree under MassTransfer or the MassTransfer Block. The policy benefits will apply to students who complete either an approved associate degree or the MassTransfer Block beginning fall 2010, regardless of initial date of enrollment.

Articulation Agreements with private colleges:
See the list of private schools and other articulations
GCC has numerous articulation agreements with private, 4-year institutions that make transfer to and acceptance of GCC credits by these institutions both simple and convenient. Prospective transfer students should familiarize themselves with any agreements of interest to them as early as possible in their stay at GCC to ensure that requirements are met.
Under these programs students are conditionally accepted into these schools provided that you have earned an associate’s degree or accumulated 30 or 60 credit hours (depending on the school) at GCC with a minimum cumulative GPA established by the institution.
Each school has established merit-based financial aid packaging based upon the student cumulative grade point average. For further information please contact the GCC Transfer Office.
