One of the Department of Higher Education’s (DHE) priorities is to develop a seamless transfer system for students. In September 2016, the DHE launched the new MassTransfer website that features its MassTransfer A2B Pathways, Commonwealth Commitment and Course Equivalency Database. The DHE, in collaboration with the community colleges, state universities, and University of Massachusetts campuses, began exploring the potential of building an alternative to the current Gen Ed Foundation that would allow STEM students to take the foundational courses related to their major prior to transfer. The STEM Gen Ed Foundation removes barriers to on-time completion for STEM students who intend to earn baccalaureate degrees and better supports them to take full advantage of the high-quality, affordable education provided at one of our 15 community colleges.
