The Massachusetts Community Colleges are committed to an open admission policy. Residents who have earned a high school diploma, GED, associate degree or higher have the opportunity to enroll in a degree or certificate program. Please note that admission to some programs is competitive or may require the completion of prerequisite courses, and some programs have additional requirements including specific deadlines. Complete information is available through your community college's Admissions Office. Your school’s admissions staff can also help you select courses that will qualify you for admission into programs that require prerequisites.
There are no application deadlines, but for programs with competitive enrollment it is suggested that you apply as early as possible for the next semester. On-line application forms are available on all Massachusetts Community College websites. For additional information please consult the school nearest you.
