SPS and MassBay Community College Partnership for Bachelor’s Degree Completion

Clark University’s School of Professional Studies (SPS) has partnered with MassBay Community College (MBCC) to provide seamless transfer and transition for MBCC students to complete their bachelor’s degree through our Undergraduate Degree Completion Program.

Students with a MBCC Associate in Science in Biotechnology or an Associate in Science in Biotechnology: Genomics and Biomanufacturing will be granted admission to SPS’s Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology program.

Students in our B.S. in Biotechnology program apply a strong foundation in math and science and gain skills in biotechnology management, quality assurance, regulatory affairs, and data management and analytics. In effect, our program expands graduates’ opportunities to be competitive for positions in leadership and management in addition to research/lab roles.

Please review the Transfer Map for more details.


  • MBCC Graduates may transfer provided that they graduate with a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale.
  • Students must meet all program-specific requirements to gain admission.
