Massachusetts Transfer Guarantee Program

Good news. If you're a student studying or planning to study at a Massachusetts community college, you are guaranteed credit when transferring to Gordon College. All you need is a minimum GPA of 2.5, an associate degree from a Massachusetts community college, and a plan to major in any one of our B.A. degrees or B.S. degrees.

At Gordon, we value that as a transfer you have already been a hard-working college student prior to submitting an application to us. We understand that evaluating the courses you intend to transfer is one of the most important pieces of your college decision. When a transfer student has been offered acceptance to Gordon College, we request a Transfer Evaluation to be completed by our Registrar’s Office. We intend for you to receive your evaluation prior to making a final college choice. View Gordon Common Core Courses ➔

As you plan your transition to Gordon we feel strongly that it needs to be a smooth one, which is why we’ve designed a special track in Orientation just for our transfer students. You are placed in an Orientation Crew (O-Crew) made up of 10-12 transfers. From there you’ll be able to start building community and connecting with students who have similar experiences to you.

We know that your housing experience is important to you. It’s where you come home at the end of the day! As a transfer student, you will be placed with another transfer or returning student at Gordon. If you are 20 years old or an incoming junior you can request apartment-style housing.

The area where Gordon is located couldn’t be better. We’re 25 miles from the thriving, academic downtown of Boston, 3 miles from the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and situated on 450 acres of beautiful New England forests. We encourage you to look at the area guide but we would love for you to come and see it for yourself!
