The Boston Tuition-Free Plan serves students from Boston Public Schools (BPS), enabling them to attend either Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) or Roxbury Community College (RCC).

The program is administered through the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development with support from the city’s Neighborhood Jobs Trust. The Program is funded by the Neighborhood Jobs Trust, which collects linkage fees from large-scale commercial developments in the city. The Program has been launched at Madison Park Vocational-Technical High School.

To qualify, students must graduate from a BPS high school with a minimum GPA of 2.2, be on a path to complete community college within a two-year period, meet the low-income status to receive a federal Pell Grant, complete the FASFA, pass the ACCUPLACER™ assessment to ensure that developmental classes are not required, and gain admission to either Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) or Roxbury Community College (RCC).
