Commonwealth Commitment

This program allows students to earn an Associate's Degree in specific academic programs at any of the Massachusetts community colleges and transfer to complete a Bachelor's Degree from Worcester State University. Students earn an Associates and Bachelor's degree in four and a half years with the possibility of a tuition and fee rebate. To qualify, students must be full-time, non-residential, in-state residents, college-ready, and maintain continuous enrollment and a cumulative 3.0 grade point average.

Reverse Transfer

Through Reverse Transfer, students who made progress toward an associate degree at a Massachusetts community college prior to transferring may apply credit earned at a Massachusetts state university or University of Massachusetts campus back to their community college to complete associate degree requirements. Massachusetts community college students are eligible if they have earned at least 30 college-level credits with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 without earning an associate degree.
