QCC offers a few different options that you may not be aware of to assist students with their books.
Our Fall 2021 semester begins on September 8. We are excited to provide courses on campus this Fall, and look forward to the return of in-person student life, academic, and athletic activities.
WOW! We've missed you and we are very much looking forward to seeing your smiling faces on campus next week! We have a lot of catching up to do. Whether you are starting college for the first time, going back after a long time or a second year student who hasn't actually been on campus we are happy to have you. Starting college can be an intimidating experience and after the year we have had, it may feel god to get out of the house or may be a little intimidating. If that's the way you feel, have no fear, we are here for you.
Seeing someone you know or love experience domestic violence can be scary, and starting the conversation can be difficult as well. Men or women going through a difficult time may not want to discuss the abuse they’re experiencing for any number of reasons, including fear, shame, or even concern for their partner who has abusive behavior. Quinsigamond Community College is committed to providing victims and survivors of domestic violence confidential resources right here on campus.
Great news for students at Quinsigamond Community College and Mount Wachusett Community College. A new articulation agreement will allow students the ability to transfer seamlessly and take advantage of quality, affordable education at both schools. An articulation agreement is a formal partnership between two or more institutions of higher education. Typically, this type of agreement is formed between a community college and a four-year institution with the goal of creating a seamless transfer process for students. Community colleges can also develop similar agreements that give students access to programs their community college doesn’t offer. In this case, MWCC partnered with QCC to offer programs in which MWCC does not currently offer, and QCC did the same with programs that it currently does not offer.
QCC has moved our job board to Handshake for hiring events, career fairs, job postings, internships, resume critique and to schedule appointments with Career Services & Credit for Prior Learning. All of the Massachusetts Community Colleges are using Handshake, which means that current QCC students and alumni will have access to even more jobs, events, career and interview tips and networking opportunities.
Today, we have more than 34,000 alumni that can be found in virtually every industry in our region and across the United States. They come from diverse backgrounds, they span generations and their career goals vary, but what they all have in common is the drive to succeed. We are incredibly proud of their hard work and accomplishments and love to see where life is taking them.
Every two years, we hold an election for our Alumni Board. The Alumni Board is a valuable resource that works to promote alumni involvement in Central Mass and brings them together to network, enjoy events, and stay engaged with each other and the QCC community. The 2021 election is officially in the books and we would like to thank all of you who participated in the elections and took the time to cast a vote! The votes are in and 3 highly qualified candidates have officially earned their seats.
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. The debt relief program is exclusively for students who were enrolled in credit degree or certificate programming during the start of the pandemic (March 13, 2020) through the end of the current Spring 2021 semester.
