Where to transfer?

  • The University of Baltimore (UB) offers a bachelors-level degree in gaming. UB offers gaming classes locally at the Universities at Shady Grove campus as well as in Baltimore. USG is 5 minutes from MC!
    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 transfer requirements and talk to a gaming advisor before choosing electives.
