The Commonwealth CommitmentCommonwealth Commitment Badge

Completing your bachelor degree just got a lot easier and more affordable, thanks to a new initiative called the Commonwealth Commitment.  This is a unique opportunity for students to plan their educational budgets in advance at a reduced cost, including completion of both an associate and a linked bachelor degree.

Reverse Transfer Program

The Massachusetts Department of Higher Education has implemented a new statewide transfer program called Reverse Transfer.  The program is designed for students who are currently enrolled at Westfield State or any of the other state universities or UMass campuses.  Qualified students enrolled at Westfield as transfer students with at least 30 college-level credits previously earned at a Massachusetts community college, but without earning the associate degree.  Reverse Transfer allows students who meet all program eligibility criteria to complete the unfinished associate degree while working toward completion of the bachelor’s degree at Westfield.

Reverse Transfer is administered by the prior community college and the Office of the Registrar at Westfield State, and questions about the program should be directed to those offices, beginning with the prior community college’s transfer advisor.  Click here for more information about the Reverse Transfer Program and to access the online application.
