MANCHESTER, Conn. (July 16, 2020) – Students facing the prospect of an unwanted “gap year” can keep their bachelor’s degree plans moving at Manchester Community College by taking advantage of Connecticut State Colleges and Universities “Transfer Ticket” programs.
It’s the most cost-effective pathway to a bachelor’s degree in Connecticut. Students pursuing a Transfer Ticket associate degree at MCC will be paired with an academic advisor and know exactly which courses to take. After completing a Transfer Ticket associate degree, students transfer to any Connecticut state university or Charter Oak State College – as a junior – confident that they have only half of the degree requirements remaining in their major. In addition, they have one degree under their belt as they pursue the degree at the senior institution.
This is an ideal solution for addressing the ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic has caused many college students to think about preempting their educations. Survey data indicates that the pandemic has put educational goals in jeopardy. Many students are considering gap years. But a traditional gap year includes employment, travel or other productive pursuits and options that are now limited.
MCC offers associate degrees with Transfer Tickets in art, biology, business, chemistry, communication, computer science, early childhood education, English, French, history, psychology, social work and many more disciplines. Visit www.manchestercc.edu/transfertickets for more information.
A Transfer Ticket associate degree can be pursued on a full-time or part-time basis at MCC. Financial aid is available for qualified students.
Registration for new students for Fall 2020 courses is open. Applications for are currently being accepted online. Visit www.manchestercc.edu/enrollment to apply to MCC.
