    Mass Bay has a lot of bang for your buck! The classes are reasonably priced and it is great to get all of your gen eds out of the way for a great price.

    For what MassBay offers, and the extremely high rates of transfers to four-year colleges, you cannot get a better deal. Transferring out of MassBay offers you the chance to go to a four-year state university as a junior, and pay almost half their tuition BECAUSE you attended MassBay. You've completed half your Bachelor's Degree at a fraction of the price others have paid, and your FAFSA helped you accomplish that. Going to MassBay won't make you hungry.
