Greenfield Community College, Worcester State to Sign Agreement
GREENFIELD — On Wednesday, June 17, Greenfield Community College (GCC) President Robert Pura and Worcester State University (WSU) President Barry Maloney will sign a $30,000 baccalaureate-degree program agreement on the GCC campus.
GCC and WSU have collaboratively created a model to provide access to an affordable baccalaureate degree to residents of the Commonwealth. The agreement expands on a current MassTransfer program implemented by the Mass. Department of Higher Education that streamlines the process for community-college students who want to transfer to any Massachusetts state university or UMass campus.
The new curriculum pathway is designed in a stackable manner to enable students to complete a GCC associate degree en route to completion of a WSU baccalaureate degree. The pathway is designed to accommodate full-time, non-residential, in-state students at approximately a $30,000 degree price point in four years.
