Cooperating Colleges of Greater Springfield (CCGS)

Bay Path University is a member of the Cooperating Colleges of Greater Springfield (CCGS), a consortium of eight colleges, including American International College, Elms College, Holyoke Community College, Springfield College, Springfield Technical Community College, Western New England University and Westfield State University.

CCGS supplements student learning experiences through inter-college library privileges, joint student activities, shared social and cultural events, and the opportunity to enroll in courses at any of the colleges. This reciprocity allows full-time students at Bay Path University to enroll in two courses each semester at any CCGS institution at no additional fee provided the course(s) is not offered at Bay Path University that semester and the CCGS course(s) will not put the student over a full-time course load.

Once students have matriculated at Bay Path, they may transfer no more than 12 additional credits from another institution. Credits earned through the CCGS as part of the cross-registration agreement for full-time students are not included in this number.
