WORCESTER, MA—July 10, 2019— Students who start at Quinsigamond Community College and then transfer in their junior year into certain four-year colleges or universities can save thousands thanks to QCC’s multitude of articulation agreements. These agreements enable community college students to seamlessly transfer as juniors into private and public four-year institutions, as long as all program requirements are met.

Recently the college renewed articulation agreements with UMass Lowell for its Computer Science program and Anna Maria College for its Elementary Education program. Eligible QCC Computer Science associate degree graduates can transfer into UMass Lowell, saving well over $16,000. QCC students who earned a General Studies-Elementary Education associate degree and have met all program requirements can transfer into Anna Maria’s program, saving over $63,000.

“These articulation agreements make it possible for students to attain a bachelor’s degree in a way that is much more affordable. It opens up so many possibilities for students who otherwise may not have been able to continue their education due to financial constraints. By starting at QCC then transferring, students can save thousands as they work toward their four-year degrees,” said QCC President Dr. Luis G. Pedraja.

QCC maintains strong ties with all of Massachusetts' public four-year colleges and universities, and offers the MassTransfer program, which helps to support students as they continue their higher education goals.

MassTransfer is a state-wide network of agreements between the Massachusetts Community Colleges, Massachusetts State Universities, and University of Massachusetts campuses.
