As growth at the campus continued, HEP collaborated with Massasoit at the beginning of 2012 to provide capital funding and building expertise to expand and build out additional space at the site in Middleborough. As a result of the additional space, including newly developed lab space, Massasoit was able to expand their program offerings the site as well as continue to develop and grow online programs.

Students can earn their degree in Liberal Arts, Business, Criminal Justice, and Early Childhood Education. Additionally, as of the 2015 school year students can earn degrees in EMS and Paramedic studies.
