Bridges to College

Credited Program


Quincy College recently received a grant from The Department of Higher Education titled the “Bridges to College Program”. This program gives students the opportunity to earn 9 credits, the equivalent of 3 courses, at no cost to them.

To qualify, students must never have attended college. The regular tuition for these 9 college credits would be approximately $3,000. In addition to this $3000 savings, the grant will also cover the cost of books.

This is a huge opportunity for educational growth as well as a great investment of your time. Currently, Quincy College has a total of 15 available spots for this program. These 3 courses will provide the necessary foundation for college work.

Accuplacer Testing is required. Hours of testing are Monday & Thursday from 9:00am-12:30pm. Please bring your student id or passport with you. Testing is in the Lower-Level Room 033 South Tower. After testing, you’ll meet with an academic advisor.
