General Education Foundation
If you’ve completed the MassTransfer General Education Foundation, you’ll have already met Suffolk’s general education requirements. The Sawyer Business School does have a separate Business core curriculum to complete, which is not part of the Gen. Ed. Foundation. For students interested in Business, Suffolk recommends the Associates in Business-Transfer option for cleaner transfer of credits.
Radiation Therapy and Art and Design Majors are not part of the Guaranteed Admission process.
