      Dean College Announces Adoption of MassTransfer Block Policy


      Dean College has recently partnered with the Massachusetts Community Colleges system in recognizing the MassTransfer Block for full transfer upon acceptance to Dean College.  Similar to the agreement already in existence among the public higher education institutions in MA, students from all 15 community colleges who successfully complete this block of 34 credits of general education with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 will meet the general education core requirements for the Dean College curriculum. 

      “Dean College recognizes that students wishing to pursue a Bachelor’s degree should have as many options as possible as they continue their education.  We strive to make the transfer process seamless and efficient and this agreement will simplify the transfer process for students,” said John Marcus, Vice President of Enrollment Services and Marketing at Dean College.

      As a small college Dean offers unmatched personal and academic support assuring student’s success as evidenced by students graduating with a Bachelor’s degree within four years at a rate above 95%.  Additionally, Dean College makes available more than $19 million in merit aid which transfer students are eligible to receive.

      Students and transfer advisors interested in learning more about Dean’s transfer option should contact the Dean College Admissions Office at 1-877-TRY-DEAN or visit our website
