Information Sessions

Some academic programs at Mount Wachusett Community College have specialized admission processes.  The best way to learn about these academic programs is to attend an Information Session.  At these Information Sessions, an Admissions representative will provide an overview of the admission process, financial aid opportunities, and guaranteed transfer process through the many MWCC articulation agreements with Baccalaureate colleges and universities. Please scroll the list below to see our currently available information sessions by program. If no dates are listed, we are still in the process of scheduling the next round of sessions.
