Maryland Transfer Advantage Program (MTAP)
What is the Maryland Transfer Advantage Program (MTAP)?
MTAP is a partnership between the University of Maryland and Montgomery College and several other community colleges in the State of Maryland.
The Maryland Transfer Advantage Program is designed for community college students with a GPA of at least 3.0 who intend to complete a Bachelor's degree at the University of Maryland at College Park.
Students participate in the Maryland Transfer Advantage Program while completing a program at Montgomery College.
Students participating in the Maryland Transfer Advantage Program:
- Complete their academic program at Montgomery College while planning for successful transfer to the University of Maryland at College Park.
- Begin to explore programs and take advantage of opportunities at the University of Maryland while still enrolled as a Montgomery College student.
- Receive targeted advising at the community college that supports successful transfer and completion of a 4-year degree.
Maryland Transfer Advantage students who have completed 15 credits at Montgomery College receive:
- University of Maryland Advising Services (Town Hall Meetings and open-advising sessions with information on Maryland programs)
- A 25% course-tuition-scholarship for one University of Maryland course per term (not to exceed 9 total credits) offered at College Park or at the Universities at Shady Grove.
Why should an engineering transfer student consider joining the MTAP program?
- Some of the engineering programs at UMCP have required freshman/sophomore courses that are not currently being taught at Montgomery College. For example: Bioengineering requires completion of BIOE120 before admission to the Bioengineering program at UMCP. So a prospective Bioengineering student could take BIOE120 at UMCP while they are still enrolled at MC and thereby be more eligible for direct admission to the Bioengineering program. For a list of possible MTAP engineering courses, follow this link: MTAP (Montgomery College – University of Maryland Clark School of Engineering)
- MTAP students get a 25% discount on one course per semester at UMCP.
