The plan commits Massachusetts public colleges and universities to providing a series of financial incentives to students who begin their studies at one of 15 community colleges, earn an associate degree within two and a half years, and then transfer to a state university or University of Massachusetts campus to earn a baccalaureate degree. The student must be a current freshman or sophomore enrolled full-time at a Community College in Massachusetts and planning to transfer to a State University or to the University of Massachusetts. Students must be enrolled in the Commonwealth Commitment program before earning their first 15 credits at a Community College. Up to $2500 scholarship and save an average 40% off the cost of a traditional bachelor's degree
