The Commonwealth Commitment

Earning your bachelor's degree in less debt begins at Berkshire Community College (BCC).

Start at BCC, transfer to a Massachusetts state university, earn your bachelor's degree and save an average of $5,000!

The Commonwealth Commitment is an innovative college affordability and completion plan to help more students achieve the dream of a college degree. This plan works in conjunction with the MassTransfer program.

Participating students must be enrolled full time and are required to maintain a 3.0 GPA. Students who meet the program requirements will, depending on the transfer pathway they choose, be able to realize an average savings of $5,090 off the cost of a baccalaureate degree.
