Mount Wachusett and Northeastern University Establish Transfer Agreement

March 24, 2016 

Mount Wachusett Community College and Northeastern University have established a new transfer agreement that allows eligible MWCC graduates to seamlessly transfer associate degree credits into Northeastern University College of Professional Studies to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

Northeastern University College of Professional Studies offers bachelor’s degree-completion programs in fast-growing fields such as information technology, health management, biotechnology, and management, with robust academic, student, and career support resources to promote student success. Students will participate in experiential learning activities and projects throughout their studies. Details of specific transfer paths are being developed this spring between the two institutions for fall 2016 enrollment.

To be considered for this transfer, MWCC students must complete an associate degree with a strong academic record.

“We are delighted to partner with one of the country’s top universities to expand transfer options for our graduates,” said MWCC President Daniel M. Asquino. “This new partnership will open doors for our students, while demonstrating our shared commitment to making quality education accessible and affordable.”

“We look forward to welcoming students from Mount Wachusett Community College into a community of enterprising students focused on completing their studies and advancing in their careers,” said John LaBrie, Dean, College of Professional Studies. “And we’re pleased that this partnership reflects our shared goals of student-focused academic excellence.”

Northeastern University College of Professional Studies is one of nine colleges that form the university. Northeastern is renowned for experiential education, and the College of Professional Studies incorporates this strength in career-focused professional education at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Degrees reflect business needs, the reality of the present economy, and areas of professional growth and demand.

Over the past half-century, Mount Wachusett Community College has built a tradition of providing innovative undergraduate education, workforce development, personal enrichment, and community service to North Central Massachusetts and beyond. MWCC offers more than 70 academic degree and certificate options and serves approximately 12,000 credit and noncredit students each year at its 269-acre main campus in Gardner and satellite campuses in Devens, Leominster, and Fitchburg. An award-winning national leader in the area of renewable energy and sustainability, MWCC is also nationally recognized for its veterans’ services, civic engagement, and K-12 partnerships.
