    TransferHow do I successfully transfer my engineering program from MC to another institution?

    Formal articulation agreements exist for effective transfer of MC credits to professional engineering programs at several upper division schools, including University of Maryland and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Less formal arrangements, built upon successful records of previous students, also exist with a number of other schools nationwide, including the two private universities in DC which have engineering departments -- Catholic and George Washington Universities.

    By far the largest proportion of our transfers go to the the University of Maryland system -- and most of them to the Clark School of Engineering on the College Park Campus. Effective articulation agreements between upper and lower division public institutions have always been an important commitment in this state, and regular meetings are held for each discipline to ensure that these arrangements remain up to date.

    We also have a well established formal agreement, of which we are quite proud, with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. RPI was founded in 1824 in Troy, NY – and holds the distinction of being the first College founded in this country to award degrees in Science and Engineering – predating Union College (just across the river in Schenectady) by 20 years, and MIT by almost 50.  MCR executed a formal articulation agreement with Rensselaer in the early 1980s -- at that time one of only 16 community colleges nationwide to be granted this special status, which includes important opportunities for scholarship support at RPI. Even today, this select group has only expanded to 38 institutions, and our names are explicitly listed as "affiliated colleges" in RPI’s undergraduate catalog .

    MC engineering students over the years have also transferred with great success to a wide variety of other well known institutions, both public and private.  A partial list would include Cal. Tech, Cornell, Ga. Tech., MIT, Northwestern, Purdue, Stanford, Union, & VPI/SU.

    Consult with, at your earliest opportunity, with an engineering advisor to discuss your transfer options.
