Transfer Planning

Your Stepping-Stone to a Bachelor’s Degree

MC has a long history of successfully preparing students for transfer to four-year institutions.

Earning a degree at MC is the first step on your way to earning a bachelor's degree. A bachelor’s degree is often necessary for competitive jobs and for graduate school. Earning your associate's degree and transferring provides you with a strong educational foundation and saves you money.

Community college transfer students often perform as well or even better at four-year schools than their peers who enroll directly from high school or who transferred from other four-year schools.

Four-Year Schools, On Our Campus

Four-year schools often visit MC to talk to students about transferring to their institution. It's a great opportunity for MC students to ask questions about the application process, financial aid, scholarships, deadlines, on-campus housing, etc. Visit the Transfer Events page to learn more.

What People are Saying
I’ve had so much support … It just goes to show the power that community colleges can have on students. Frankly, I don’t know if I would’ve been the student that I am now if it weren’t for Montgomery College.
