WORCESTER, MA— April 2, 2021— Quinsigamond Community College will host a virtual information session for Becker College students on Thursday, April 8, 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. The session offers current Becker students information on how to transfer into QCC. Prospective Becker students are also invited to join.

QCC recently signed a transfer agreement and memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Becker College to assist current Becker students in transferring into the College to continue their studies. The agreement is for all current Becker students in programs transferrable into QCC’s comparable programs that include:

  • Associate Degree in Business Administration Transfer
  • Associate Degree in Criminal Justice
  • Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education
  • Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education Birth – Eight Years Old (Evening Only)
  • Associate Degree Nurse Education

“We will do everything we can to assist Becker students in navigating these uncharted waters. We are waiving our application fees for these students, and QCC/Becker transfer specialists will assist in providing them with the supports they need to succeed,” said QCC President Luis G. Pedraja, Ph.D. “Starting in the fall, we are offering in-person classes, as well as three different types of remote learning modalities, designed to meet each student’s unique learning style.”

At QCC, students can attend for free by qualifying for financial aid, and the College has increased its financial support to students during the pandemic, with over $3 million in emergency aid from federal, state and institutional funds. QCC’s Student Emergency Fund is also available to current students in significant hardship due to the pandemic, regardless of citizenship, residency or enrollment status.

Students can start at QCC then transfer their credits into a bachelor degree program, through transfer agreements with a vast array of colleges and universities, saving them thousands.

“QCC has been a smarter option in higher education for so many in the region. We look forward to Becker students realizing the opportunities that are afforded to them here,” President Pedraja said.

Registration is required to attend the information session. For more information, and to register, visit
