In their senior year, students begin taking courses on campus at Westfield State, connecting with the campus community and student resources. Enrolled students receive expert peer and professional advising to select courses that will meet both their high school graduation criteria and Westfield State’s transferable common core of courses. The promise that partner schools and Westfield State University makes to students: Upon successful completion of the program, the student will be given preferred admission to Westfield State University. Should the student choose to attend college elsewhere, many of the credits earned with Westfield State University are transferable.
In addition to offering access to college coursework and credit hours toward a degree, the goal of The Westfield Promise is to provide an experience that instills a confidence in students so they go on to earn the degree they may once have thought out of reach.
