For Massachusetts community college students or graduates, programs offered through CPE honor the MassTransfer Block (MTB).

This block satisfies the completion of general education (GenEd) requirements with the ability to add 2 additional courses, one of which being Integrative experience and a possible Diversity course, if the student hasn’t completed another US or Global diversity course.
