Governor Charlie Baker spoke to seniors from all Springfield high schools on October 4 at the "Go Higher!" College Fair held at the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. Go Higher! is a campaign by the Department of Higher Education, in partnership with Massachusetts' 29 public colleges and universities, to raise awareness of the growing number of outstanding programs and opportunities available to students at our community colleges, state universities and UMass campuses.
The Governor also described the Mass. Commonwealth Commitment program which offers a 10 percent tuition discount and a guaranteed transfer of credit to students who maintain a 3.00 GPA at a Massachusetts community college and then transfer to and graduate from a state university.
