Taking a few classes for college credit?

  • There is no need to submit an application if you are planning to just take a few classes for college credit, without a plan to earn a degree from MassBay. You can simply choose your classes and submit a Registration Form. Placement Testing is required before registering for a math or English class. We provide assistance with signing up for Placement Testing. If the course you are looking to enroll in requires proof of completion of a pre/co-requisite, please submit a registration form along with a copy of your unofficial transcript. Your unofficial transcript must state your name and the name of the school.
  • It is also important to review our payment information. Financial aid is not available for students who are not enrolled in a degree or certificate program. If you are a college student already, please be advised you cannot receive federal aid at more than one school.
