Anne Arundel Community College Transfer Agreements

Plan. Plan. Plan. At the risk of sound­ing like a bro­ken plate, the impor­tance of plan­ning a smooth trans­fer can really never be overe­sized. Too many stu­dents think of “trans­fer out” as their last stop at AACC, but really, your trans­fer des­ti­na­tions should mark your entire AACC expe­ri­ence. Decid­ing what you ulti­mately want – and then going in each term towards those goals – is the only way to ensure that every course you‘ve taken, every abil­ity you learn, and every dol­lar you spend at AACC gives you the best pos­si­ble return. UMGC offers legit­i­mate Mary­land Com­mu­nity Col­lege grad­u­ates the oppor­tu­nity to earn a bachelor‘s degree at a sig­nif­i­cantly reduced cost with the grad­u­a­tion schol­ar­ship. The fol­low­ing agree­ments assist stu­dents as they move from an exter­nal insti­tu­tion to an AACC pro­gram. “As part of the agree­ment, we wanted to develop student-friendly path­ways that exem­pli­fies a four-year aca­d­e­mic plan and leaves no ques­tions about the course work required or the course work that will be entrusted,” said Mar­cus Wright, Direc­tor of Trans­fer, Artic­u­la­tion and Career Guid­ance at AACC.

Not nec­es­sar­ily. An asso­ci­ated degree does not guar­an­tee a junior posi­tion. To reach the Junior Stand­ing, you need 60 trans­fer­able cred­its. Junior Stand­ing doesn‘t nec­es­sar­ily mean you‘ll only need two years to com­plete your stud­ies. This will be done if your Asso­ciate Degree is com­posed of courses that meet the gen­eral edu­ca­tional and dis­ci­pli­nary require­ments set by the major at the trans­fer insti­tu­tion you have cho­sen. Some artic­u­la­tion agree­ments are part of ARTSYS, the Mary­land Artic­u­la­tion Sys­tem, which is intended to sup­port your trans­fer of AACC to insti­tu­tions in the Uni­ver­sity Sys­tem of Mary­land and other par­tic­i­pat­ing insti­tu­tions. Other agree­ments are con­cluded out­side art­sys than part­ner­ships between the AACC and indi­vid­ual insti­tu­tions. These agree­ments are listed below. Once you set your goals and have planned your AACC trip around these des­ti­na­tions, the final step is to apply for admis­sion to your vot­ing school.

Mary­land Com­mu­nity Col­lege stu­dents who have com­pleted an asso­ciate degree and have a cumu­la­tive GPA of 2.0 or higher can­not trans­fer directly to a four-year pub­lic insti­tu­tion in Mary­land. How­ever, there is no guar­an­tee that the stu­dent will be admit­ted to the uni­ver­sity or uni­ver­sity of his or her choice or that he/she will be admit­ted dur­ing the depar­ture period. From your first day, as an AACC stu­dent, start work­ing on these steps to ensure a suc­cess­ful trans­fer. If you‘re vis­it­ing a Mary­land Com­mu­nity Col­lege that isn‘t listed here, or if you don‘t see a 2+2 for your core sub­ject, visit ARTSYS to see the Rec­om­mended Trans­fer Pro­gram (RTP) for your school and major sub­ject. If you have any ques­tions about our part­ner­ship con­tracts or ARTSYS, please con­tact the TSC or a trans­fer advi­sor at your people‘s uni­ver­sity. With a career and major sub­ject in mind, you can choose a uni­ver­sity or uni­ver­sity that suits you best Whether it‘s a pub­lic or pri­vate school in Mary­land or beyond, our advi­sors can help you find a school that suits you aca­d­e­m­i­cally, finan­cially, socially, and oth­er­wise. You can change at any time if you meet the admis­sion require­ments of the four-year insti­tu­tion. As a gen­eral rule, you must meet the min­i­mum credit and grade require­ments, which vary from insti­tu­tion to insti­tu­tion. A smooth trans­fer is not just about com­plet­ing an asso­ci­ated Degree. It‘s about mak­ing a clear plan at AACC from day one, and then select­ing the right courses each semes­ter to posi­tion your­self for your core sub­ject and the school you want.

It means the same thing. The artic­u­la­tions are agree­ments devel­oped between Anne Arun­del Com­mu­nity Col­lege and four-year insti­tu­tions to max­i­mize the num­ber of cred­its stu­dents can trans­fer. Each artic­u­la­tion agree­ment defines how the stud­ies car­ried out at the AACC apply to the four-year institution‘s baccalaureate.…
