This program qualifies for the MassTransfer STEM block, which guarantees credit transfer to Massachusetts state colleges and universities. MassTransfer grants students automatic acceptance to certain Massachusetts state colleges and universities by achieving the minimum grade point average and the HCC degree. Students who enroll in programs with the 28 credit MassTransfer STEM general education foundation block will need to complete the associate degree in order to waive the general education requirements at a Massachusetts State University. In addition to the completion of the associate’s degree and the STEM general education foundation at Holyoke Community College, students will need to complete an additional 12 credits in general education requirements at the four-year college. If a student will not complete the degree before transferring it is recommended that they complete the 34 credit MassTransfer general education foundation block. Students should meet with Mark Broadbent, Coordinator of Transfer Affairs to discuss their transfer plans.
Depending on course selection, 50% of this program can be completed online. Go to Online Learning for more information.
