Massachusetts Community College Students
In accordance with the Massachusetts Transfer Guarantee, William James College offers qualified transfer students from Massachusetts community colleges streamlined admission to our Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Human Services program.
- Complete an associate's degree program at a Massachusetts community college and apply to transfer to the Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Human Services at William James College
- Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5
General Education Foundation
The General Education Foundation (formerly known as the MassTransfer Block or MTB) refers to a set of general education, core, or distribution requirements, consisting of 34 college-level credits. These credits, when completed together with a 2.0 or higher GPA, fully transfer to WJC and will satisfy the general education/core requirements at WJC. As this is a bachelor’s completion program, students must have at least 60 completed credits to apply for admission.
Students will also have credits from their associate's degree transferred in as bulk credits. In total, students who enter under this agreement can transfer up to 60 credits, starting them in their junior year. Additional credits may be reviewed on an individual basis.
Costs and Financial Aid
WJC offers two options for students to transfer into:
- Students can complete the bachelor’s program in 2 years (including the summer semester) on a full-time basis; or
- Students may also transfer to a part-time option that usually takes 3 years including summer semesters.
