The MassTransfer Gen Ed Foundation is a block of courses that meet the general education requirements of all Massachusetts public four-year universities. This set of 34 credits will transfer into any major at Salem State University. An associate's degree is not a requirement to achieve the MassTransfer Gen Ed Foundation, however, the credits can also apply towards most associate's degrees.
Complete your associate's degree at a Massachusetts Community College in an approved Commonwealth Commitment program and transfer to Salem State University as a full-time student and save thousands of dollars on your bachelor's degree.
Students transferring directly to Salem State University within one year of graduation from a Massachusetts State Community College with a MassTransfer associate's degree and a GPA of 3.0 will be eligible for a scholarship equal to the amount of in-state day tuition. Students must enroll as a day student, and stay continuously enrolled for the full four semesters of eligibility. In order to maintain the scholarship for the second year of study, students must continue as a day student and maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 at Salem State.
