As Massachusetts’ first community college, Berkshire provides several resources to residents of the county, such as workforce development and personal enrichment classes.
The school’s main function, however, is as a starting point for college-bound high school graduates. Berkshire Community College provides an affordable way to start your postsecondary study before transferring to a four-year institution.
Berkshire Community College’s academics include nearly 50 programs of study. The school confers associate of arts, associate of science and certificate programs in subjects ranging from Engineering Technology to Peace and World Order.
BCC’s associate of arts curriculum meets the requirements of the Massachusetts Transfer Compact. This means that after earning your AA, you can transfer to any number of in-state institutions. Under the new MassTransfer policy, all students are guaranteed full credit transfer to the school of their choice. Additionally, students with a 2.5 GPA or higher are guaranteed admission, and those with GPA above 3.0 are eligible for a tuition discount.
Most financial aid at Berkshire Community College comes from federal sources. Pell grants, student loans and work-study can be paired with state assistance like the MASSGrant to help you meet your financial need.
