We have officially moved our Southbridge location to the Southbridge High School. This will make it easier for those in Southbridge and the surrounding communities to have access to quality, affordable higher education. QCC at Southbridge will begin in-person and online classes for the fall 2021 semester.
The big moment is here! We have officially begun transitioning to more in-person services and courses as we prepare for the comeback this Fall.
Quinsigamond Community College will use over $2.5 million of the institutional portion of the Federal Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds we received in May 2021, to erase college-held debt for students.

Thirty-seven percent of public university students in Massachusetts experience food insecurity, according to a recent report by the Hope Center for College, Community and Justice, and the MA Department of Higher Education. This stark reality, combined with the opportunity at the federal and state level to tackle food access as a basic need on campus, led to the filing of comprehensive and visionary legislation titled, “An Act establishing the Massachusetts Hunger-Free Campus Initiative.”
