2‑to‑4 Year Summer STEM Transfer Academy

Trans­fer­ring to a pub­lic 4‑year school this Fall? Check out the 2‑to‑4 Year Sum­mer STEM Trans­fer Acad­e­my!

STEM Starter Acad­e­my has been sup­port­ing com­mu­ni­ty col­lege STEM stu­dents earn degrees and cer­tifi­cates since 2014. The Depart­ment of High­er Edu­ca­tion wants to con­tin­ue to sup­port com­mu­ni­ty col­lege stu­dents in their edu­ca­tion as they pur­sue bachelor’s degrees at one of our pub­lic 4‑year institutions.

Stu­dents trans­fer­ring from one of the fif­teen com­mu­ni­ty col­leges in Mass­a­chu­setts and trans­fer­ring to a state col­lege or uni­ver­si­ty to pur­sue a bachelor’s degree in a STEM field are wel­come to apply to a Sum­mer Trans­fer Acad­e­my pro­gram. These pro­grams will either run in-per­son or vir­tu­al­ly, depend­ing on the sta­tus of social dis­tanc­ing and cam­pus pol­i­cy at that time.

STEM trans­fer acad­e­my pro­grams will allow you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to get a jump start on your time at the uni­ver­si­ty.  Stu­dents who par­tic­i­pate in sum­mer bridge will:

  • Have fun!
  • Meet oth­er STEM trans­fer students!
  • Get to know the fac­ul­ty who will be teach­ing your class­es in the fall!
  • Take a free class that applies to your major!
  • Know where and how to access key resources on campus!

How to Apply

The 2022 STEM Trans­fer Acad­e­my appli­ca­tion is now live and stu­dents can check indi­vid­ual uni­ver­si­ty pro­gram infor­ma­tion for spe­cif­ic appli­ca­tion dead­lines?
