MassTransfer articulation for WSU education licensure programs

Program-to-Program Articulation Agreements for Education Licensure & MassTransfer

Westfield State offers prospective transfer students the ability to review current program-to-program articulation agreements established with selected Massachusetts community colleges for admission to Westfield’s early childhood, elementary, and secondary education licensure programs.  These agreements meet full MassTransfer Program guidelines instituted by the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education for students who enroll in a Massachusetts community college beginning in fall 2009.

Westfield State has approved the following Mass community college associate’s degree programs in education* for full MassTransfer Program benefits in Westfield’s education licensure programs.  Please click on the links below to view the details of each agreement:

Holyoke Community College (HCC)

Springfield Technical Community College (STCC)

Each agreement includes two documents: a curriculum spreadsheet; and a narrative portion that explains terms of the agreement under MassTransfer.  Prospective transfer students may use these agreements for advising purposes while they pursue their studies at the community college.  The respective community college faculty and transfer advisors use these agreements when they provide general academic advising and course selection recommendations to their students who plan to transfer to Westfield. Westfield’s Academic Advising Center staff also use these agreements when they work with accepted transfer students in preparation for their first semester as education majors at the university. 

*HCC students who complete the AA degree, Liberal Arts and Science Option, and STCC students who complete either the AA degree in General Studies (LTGS.AA) or the AA degree in Liberal Arts Transfer (LTTR.AA) before transferring into Westfield’s education licensure programs also are eligible for consideration of full MassTransfer Program benefits; however, program-to-program articulation is not available for these associate’s degree programs, and it will take transfer students from these AA degree programs longer to receive the bachelor’s degree with education licensure.  Prospective HCC & STCC transfer students who are interested in pursuing baccalaureate-level education licensure at Westfield are encouraged to enroll in an appropriate associate’s degree program in education, as noted above.
