We offer qualified transfer students from Massachusetts community colleges streamlined admission to many of our academic programs.

Students applying to the following programs will have additional application requirements: dental hygiene, diagnostic medical sonography (DMS), nuclear medicine, and nursing. Students applying to these programs should connect directly with Victoria Rosa, Director of Undergraduate Admission, to discuss those program requirements and individual eligibility.


  1. Complete an associate degree program at a Massachusetts community college and apply to transfer to a related course of study at Regis College
  2. Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5

General Education Foundation

The General Education Foundation (formerly known as the MassTransfer Block or MTB) refers to a set of general education, core, or distribution requirements, consisting of 34 college-level credits:

Credits Subject Areas Notes
9 Behavioral and social sciences Courses may be in either subject area
9 Humanities and fine arts Courses may be in either subject area
7 Natural or physical science Must include at least one course with a lab
6 English composition/writing  
3 Mathematics/quantitative reasoning  

These credits, when completed together with a 2.0 or higher GPA, fully transfer to Regis, even if you do not have your associate degree. These credits satisfy the general education/distribution/core requirements at Regis, with Regis being able to add no more than six additional credits/two courses.

Merit Scholarships

Merit scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement to eligible transfer students. Students are notified of their merit scholarships by the Office of Undergraduate Admission at the time of their acceptance. The designation of a merit scholarship remains in effect for up to four years of undergraduate study, provided the student maintains the minimum renewal requirements. Renewal of all merit awards is contingent upon full-time undergraduate enrollment and achievement of specific cumulative GPA requirements.

Financial Aid

Students may apply for need-based financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Regis College’s FAFSA school code is 002206.
