Joint Admissions, Tuition Advantage Program and Commonwealth Transfer Compact
Students beginning their programs at MWCC in the fall of 2009, will fall under the MassTransfer regulations. The Department of Education’s new MassTransfer website can be found at www.mass.edu/MassTransfer.
Effective fall 2009, Joint Admissions, Tuition Advantage Program and Commonwealth Transfer Compact will be replaced by, and integrated into the new MassTransfer policy. The transfer advising website has been updated with the MassTransfer information. Students who were in JA, TAP, or CTC-eligible programs prior to fall 2009 will be “grandfathered in” to the JA, TAP, and/or CTC regulations. Community college students who matriculated prior to fall 2009 and who choose to continue in the Commonwealth Transfer Compact and/or Joint Admissions Program will be required to complete their associate degrees by August 2013 and must matriculate at a Massachusetts state university or University of Massachusetts campus by fall 2014.
