Transfer to QCC

The QCC Admissions Office works with/assists students interested in transferring to QCC for certificates and associates degrees.

Transferring to QCC from another college is easy and can be done in 4 steps:

  1. Apply to QCC, paper or online.
  2. Submit proof of high school graduation or equivalent.
  3. Request that your former institution mail your college transcripts to QCC Admissions Office. This is the only way that transcripts will be considered official.
  4. Make an appointment with an academic advisor. It's a good idea to bring an unofficial transcript to your advisor appointment so that he or she can consider previous credits taken when assisting you to select your courses. You can make your advising appointment prior to your acceptance to the college.

Transfer from QCC

​QCC Transfer Services works with current students interested in furthering their education towards bachelor’s degrees.

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 MassTransfer program 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.

Ways to transfer

Some students attend QCC to complete a handful of courses before continuing at a four-year college. Others stay through to graduation and take advantage of the benefit of an associate degree, including transfer agreements that lead to majors at various baccalaureate partner institutions. Regardless of how short or how long you plan to attend QCC, it’s helpful to think of transfer in terms of pathways. Transfer Services staff can help you learn about transfer pathways and put together a transfer plan that works for you.

Transfer Agreements

QCC has agreements with public four-year institutions through the statewide MassTransfer program, which offers guarantees of admission at Massachusetts state universities and UMass campuses. QCC also maintains a variety of articulation agreements with private colleges and universities across New England. Through these different agreements, QCC graduates transfer into a range of academic programs and can advance toward their four-year degrees more easily, quickly, and affordably.
