Future Beacon Option at Bunker Hill Community College

If you've applied to UMass Boston but were not admissible, the Future Beacon Option at Bunker Hill Community College makes it easy to enroll at Bunker Hill Community College and then transfer to UMass Boston in a future semester.  UMass Boston and Bunker Hill Community College have established a partnership that will make this transition very easy. By choosing to participate in this program, you can take advantage of the following benefits:

  • No need to fill out an additional application. UMass Boston will share your information with Bunker Hill.
  • In addition to the advising resources and support offered at Bunker Hill, you will have additional support about all transfer planning from Ashley Ewing, Transfer Enrollment Counselor.
  • When you are ready to transfer, your reactivation will be made easy and the fee will be waived.

Transfer when you are ready, after earning an Associate's degree, or after earning just 12 credits of college level course work (with a 2.5 GPA or higher).  To participate you must complete the program participation form.

Note: Successful completion of the Future Beacon Option does not guarantee admission to the Nursing, Engineering, or Management (Business) programs at UMass Boston. Other majors or programs may also be excluded based on limited availability or special requirements.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Ashley Ewing, Transfer Enrollment Counselor for Bunker Hill Community College.
