Undergraduate Degree at UMass Boston
Students can then continue with their education by pursuing an undergraduate degree at the University of Massachusetts Boston. The University will approve the 60 credits of an Associate’s Degree toward a baccalaureate degree. Of particular interest is the fact that the Center has an additional articulation agreement with the University’s College of Public and Community Service. The College will provide the Center’s students with 8 competencies toward the baccalaureate degree. Vocational Approval students then have only to earn 32 competencies for a baccalaureate degree. In addition, the Center has an agreement with the University’s College of Arts and Sciences whereby CAS may accept 24 credits from the Center’s Vocational-Technical Certification course of study as electives toward a CAS degree.
