Welcome Becker Students

We have created this web page in order to respond to the many students who have contacted UMass following Becker College’s announcement -- in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Education -- that it is now engaged in contingency closure planning. This web page is intended to allow those students who continue to proactively seek to explore transferring to another institute of higher education or the UMass system, the opportunity to receive information about the UMass transfer process so that we can help students and their families make the best informed decisions about their educational futures. Despite the fact that the MA DHE and NECHE have publicly announced and stated that they are engaged in contingency closure planning with Becker College in the event that Becker College decides not to sustain operations at or near current levels for the next academic year, that does NOT mean that Becker College's Board of Trustees will ultimately vote or decide to close the college. UMass recognizes that students have a right to explore transfer opportunities under any circumstances and has established this page in response to any and all students' interest in considering other educational opportunities, and to support students and their families. Submitting information to UMass for the purpose of exploring transfer opportunities is not binding in any way. Should Becker College’s existing programs continue there or elsewhere, UMass will ensure that students who have expressed interest in transferring to our campuses are aware of that. Students have a right to explore transfer opportunities under any circumstances, which is why we have established this page. Submitting information to UMass for the purpose of exploring transfer opportunities is not binding in any way.
