Transfer Advising at MassBay Community College

Your dreams. Our mission.

Events, Services, and Resources

The Transfer Coordinator, Transfer Counselor, and the Academic Advising Staff at MassBay are committed to assisting students, faculty and staff with any questions regarding transfer. Throughout the academic year, the college community is invited to partake in or request any of the following services.


Below is a description of some of the available resources through the Transfer Advising Office:

Transfer Workshops

Transfer Workshops are held mainly on the Wellesley campus, but there are some offered on the Framingham campus. These workshops provide an overview of the transfer process as well as give you a chance to meet the transfer coordinator before you begin the process. These workshops are designed to answer some of the ‘big picture’ questions about transferring into a four-year institution. All students interested in transferring to another school are instructed to attend a Transfer Workshop early in their academic career at MassBay. You can view available dates on the Transfer Calendar and call the Advising Center to sign-up for a workshop.

Transfer Fairs

There is a Transfer Fair in both the fall and spring semesters of each academic year. Over 35 colleges and universities are invited to attend the transfer fairs each semester. At the fair, students have the opportunity to meet with admissions representatives about the requirements for transferring into the school. The transfer fair is also a great time to learn more about the institutions that you are interested in applying to after your time at MassBay. You can view fair dates on the Transfer Calendar.

Transfer Advising Appointments

The Transfer Coordinator, as well as other Transfer Counselors, are available by appointment to meet with students who have already attended a Transfer Workshop. The Transfer Coordinator assists the student in an individual setting in order to best meet the needs of the student.

Forms and Other Resources

Transfer Advising Staff has made the following resources and documents available to MassBay students to assist them with all aspects of the transfer process. It is recommend that all students download and read through these forms before attending a transfer workshop or meeting with a transfer counselor.
