Boston Mayor Marty Walsh recently expanded the city’s Tuition-Free Community College Plan, which pays for up to three years of community college for eligible Boston Public School graduates, to include MassBay Community College. Bunker Hill Community College and Roxbury Community College are already part of the program.
MassBay, which operates campuses in Wellesley, Framingham and Ashland, enriches the tuition-free school selection by offering programs of study such as automotive technology, interior design, and marketing.
Mayor Walsh announced the Tuition-Free Community College Plan last spring. In its first semester, the plan enrolled 41 students. The plan is funded by the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development, part of the Boston Planning & Development Agency, and the Neighborhood Jobs Trust, a public charitable trust.
