New Transfer Agreement Aids Gaming Students in Reaching Educational Goals

Montgomery College is one of four community colleges, including Anne Arundel, Carroll, and The Community College of Baltimore County, that has signed articulation agreements with the University of Baltimore (UB) to help students transfer into UB’s bachelor’s degree program in Simulation and Digital Entertainment. The agreement between Montgomery College and UB will ensure that qualified Montgomery College graduates with an associate’s degree in computer gaming and simulation have their course credits transfer seamlessly to UB.

Upon graduation, Montgomery College gaming students will be encouraged to transfer to institutions, such as UB, where they can continue their studies and earn a bachelor’s degree. The four-year degree has become necessary for students who want to be even more marketable in the increasingly competitive gaming industry. The UB articulation agreement will provide students a more streamlined path toward their completion of a bachelor's degree, and ultimately, to their goal of employment.
