Counseling and Transfer

Montgomery Scholars Program

Special honors counselors work with each class of Scholars to provide academic advising, personal counseling, and transfer advising. Our Scholars Program provides several special services to its participants.

Advising Sessions

As an incoming student, you will be invited to special academic orientation sessions in early June. You will plan your fall course schedule and register for classes at these sessions. Honors counselors provide individual counseling. Our staff members will provide you and your parents with information concerning honors core course work, transfer, financial aid, and the summer experience.

Individual Counseling

Our counselors keep in contact with Scholars through appointments and email. You can meet individually with an honors counselor to discuss transfer, plan your class schedule, or talk about personal issues.

Student Development Courses

You can enroll in special sections of student development courses to explore issues concerning time management, career development, and college survival skills.

Transfer and Scholarship Workshops

The College holds workshops to provide information about the transfer process to four-year colleges and universities. Honors counselors assist Scholars in applying for admission and obtaining information about transfer credits. Honors counselors will assist you in creating a scholarship portfolio, which highlights your academic accomplishments.

National Honor Society

Phi Theta Kappa is the national honors society for students at two-year colleges. You must have a cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.5 for at least 15 hours of course work at Montgomery College and be enrolled in a degree program or transfer curriculum. An induction ceremony is held each semester for new members of the honors society.

Transfer and Articulation Agreements

Montgomery College has strong transfer relationships and articulation agreements with both public and private four-year schools in our metropolitan area—and an excellent record for transferring students to the finest colleges and universities in the nation. Montgomery Scholars have been accepted to a wide array of competitive colleges and universities.
