The Best Kept Secret In Higher Education

Sep 4, 2020 10:46:58 AM / by Quinsig Wyvern

Did you know spending two years at QCC then transferring to a four-year college or university can save you a boatload of money? It’s true… tons of money. More and more students are finding one of the best ways to get a bachelor’s degree is by attending a community college, then transferring to a four-year college or university. Community college is one of the most affordable ways to get a higher education. Tuition and fees are the lowest around, plus there are no room and board costs to incur. To sweeten the pot a bit more, attend a community college like QCC and earn your associate degree then transfer to a four-year school and you can earn two degrees for the price of one! Sound good?

During the pandemic many four-year colleges and universities are changing to remote instruction, yet what isn’t changing is the price. The ones that are bringing students back on-campus are severely limiting activities, not to mention there’s an increased risk of coming in contact with someone who may have the virus. Wouldn’t it be smarter to take the same online classes at a fraction of the cost, stay safe at home, and earn an associate degree and then transfer to a four-year school to complete your bachelor’s degree?

At QCC we have over 250-transfer agreement pathways to both public and private four-year institutions that give you a way to seamlessly continue your education. In addition, when you transfer, you will be starting the year off as an upperclassman with an associate degree under your belt.

We offer some pretty sweet state transfer options too - MassTransfer and Commonwealth Commitment. The MassTransfer program gives you a way to transfer to baccalaureate programs at any Massachusetts State University or UMASS Campus with guaranteed admission, full applicability of credit, and a tuition discount.  This way you will save even more money while earning your bachelor’s degree!

Commonwealth Commitment is another way that eligible students can save with a freeze on tuition and fees when you enter the program, as well as a 10% reduction on tuition and fees over four years. Students must sign up for Commonwealth Commitment when they first enroll at QCC, and maintain eligibility requirements along the way. Contact QCC’s Transfer Office for more details.

It makes sense to rethink your higher education. Visit QCC.edu today to learn more about the smarter, safer way to attend college.
