TIPS FOR A SMOOTH TRANSITION TO USG FOR YOUR BACHELOR’S DEGREE
Stay on track for your transfer with these helpful tips developed by USG and Montgomery College.
1. Review the undergraduate programs offered at USG.

6. Apply for financial aid by completing the FAFSA by the institutional priority deadline as well as the March 1st state deadline. Also, please be sure to submit a General Scholarship Application for students attending USG.
7. Send a final transcript from MC to the home institution’s admissions office once all MC coursework has been completed.
