QCC offers a few different options that you may not be aware of to assist students with their books.
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.
Today, we have more than 34,000 alumni that can be found in virtually every industry in our region and across the United States.

The votes are in and 3 highly qualified candidates have officially earned their seats.
We've joined President Biden’s COVID-19 College Vaccination Challenge! Colleges across the country are being asked to commit to taking actions that will engage their college communities and encourage everyone to get vaccinated. Statistics show that a significant portion of the older population have been vaccinated; however, the younger generation is lagging behind. Colleges and universities offer a significant opportunity to reach that younger generation.
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.
Quinsigamond Community College’s Workforce Development and Continuing Education Center (WDCC) is offering a free, grant-funded Administrative Medical Professional Training program that will prepare students for a career as a medical administrative assistant.

If you are a current QCC student, we have a great opportunity for you! We are now accepting applications for the Olga Lopez-Hill Scholarship.
Two peas in a pod…that’s what most people think of when they meet South High School students Milexie Evri and Shannen Jimenez. These seniors are virtually inseparable and are now preparing for their futures through the Early College Program at QCC. This is a program that allows high school students to take college courses for college credit at no cost, while simultaneously attending high school.
Imagine a place where the divisions of race, gender, and ethnicity are non-existent, a place where an equitable education and support is a right of all. QCC student Zuheyry Encarnacion (Class of ‘20) knows that place. Thanks to QCC’s Mentoring Program and her mentor, Dr. Natalie Anumba, a
forensic psychologist and assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Zuheyry found the support she needed to help her succeed.
