Transfer Agreements

Students are often concerned about how their course will transfer from one institution to the next. Transfer Agreements (commonly referred to as Articulation Agreements) help alleviate these concerns. If a Transfer Agreement is in place, it means that faculty at an outside institution has thoroughly evaluated an academic program from MassBay for approval. Benefits of a transfer agreement commonly include transfer of all college-level course work and/or guaranteed admission.

Students seeking to transfer a college agreement should print the appropriate summary sheet and include it with their application to the school. If the student applies online, the summary sheet should be mailed in with any other documentation including, personal essays, recommendations, or official transcripts.

Initiation of an Articulation Agreement — whether by internal or external constituents — requires the completion and submission of a Notice of Intent to Pursue an Articulation Agreement. Upon submission, this form will be shared with appropriate parties, such as: Vice President for Academic Affairs, Division Dean, Department Chair, Coordinator of Transfer Affairs & Articulation, etc. It is suggested that all interested parties review the Articulation Guidelines before and during the articulation process. Additional questions can be directed to the Coordinator of Transfer Affairs & Articulation.
