Transfer Partners
One of Holyoke Community College's primary missions is to provide the first two years of college-level study for students who want to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a Baccalaureate Degree.

This agreement links certain transfer associate degree programs at community colleges to four-year baccalaureate programs at state colleges and universities. What does that mean to you? Guaranteed admission, tuition reduction, and more!

Private School Joint Admissions
Holyoke Community College has established Joint Admissions programs with several local private colleges. Explore your options!

Articulation Agreements
HCC has established many agreements with four-colleges to assist with your course selection and transfer decisions.

If you are a strong, committed student from an underrepresented group or a veteran, the Pathways Program can help you excel at HCC-and then transfer to a selective four-year college. Pathways offers free academic and personal support services to qualified students.

On-Campus Visits
Our office of Transfer Affairs offers transfer counseling and hosts regular visits from regional colleges each semester. Drop by Frost 273 or contact to make an appointment to discuss your transfer plans. It's never to early to start planning!
