The Stanley Z. Koplik Certificate of Mastery with Distinction is a non-need-based tuition waiver for Massachusetts public colleges and universities. Students who meet the initial qualifications are notified in their Junior year by letter to the students’ parents or guardians. This letter, in combination with the included application form, explains the remaining requirements should the student wish to pursue them.

Initial qualification for the Certificate of Mastery, requires that a student score “Advanced” on at least one grade 10 MCAS test subject, and score “Proficient” on the remaining sections of the grade 10 MCAS.
