Transfer Information

Many Four-Year Schools Offer Gaming ProgramsAfter you complete the two-year A.A. degree in Computer Gaming and Simulation at Montgomery College, you probably will want to transfer to a four-year school to complete a four-year degree. See MC's transfer homepage

Remember to file your MC graduation forms so there is an official record that you graduated from MC.

Many schools offer gaming programs. See for a list of schools around the world. Some local universities are listed below. Make sure to research possible grants and scholarships and transfer scholarships!

Important! If you know where you want to transfer, contact that school to find out what the transfer requirements will be. They are different for each school!

Where to transfer?

  • The University of Baltimore (UB) offers a bachelors-level degree in gaming. UB offers gaming classes at the Universities at Shady Grove campus (USG is 5 minutes from MC!) as well as in Baltimore. Our transfer agreement and the new "Bee Line" program makes it easy for gaming students to transfer from MC to UB. UB and USG have generous transfer scholarships for qualified students, so be sure to ask about those! For example, many students have won a free ride to UB with the Wilson Scholarship. Students planning to transfer to UB should be sure to read the requirements before planning their class schedules. See the Bee Line program and the transfer agreement for specifics. Please contact Prof. Solomon with any questions.
