Important Transfer Deadlines

  • November 1:  The transfer application deadline for most schools if you plan to transfer in Spring 2012 is around November 1.  Check with each school.  Also request  an official copy of your MC transcript be sent by this date.
  • November 15th:  Application deadline for MTAP, the Maryland Transfer Advantage Program. 
    Details about the program and who qualifies:  www.montgomerycollege.edu/MTAP
  • February 1 – March 1:  The transfer application deadline for most schools if you plan to transfer in Fall 2012.  Start applications sooner for maximum transfer consideration – see any school’s Transfer Admissions page.  It is not too early to submit an application (Oct – Dec) BEFORE the actual deadline.
  • January 1st to March 1:  FAFSA Deadline for Maryland State money and scholarship programs at most transfer schools

It cannot be emphasized enough – the competition for transfer seats increases every semester.  Submit transfer applications early, well before published deadlines, to increase your chances of acceptance.

TIMING YOUR TRANSFER MOVE 

  • Transfer with Less Than 30 Credits Completed at MC:  if you have fewer than 30 credits showing as completed on your MC transcript at the time that you apply to a four-year transfer school, you will need to also send a copy of your high school transcript and SAT scores to most schools.  Check the Transfer Admissions page of each school for details and call schools directly for more information. 
  • Planning to transfer to UMCP?  You will be considered for transfer admission only if you have the following items completed or in progress on your transcript:  - 30 to 60 transferable college credits, - EN 102 or 109, - MA 110 or higher, - five CORE (Gen Ed courses) total, and an overall - GPA of 3.0 or higher.  Missing any one of those things, your chance of getting admitted is slim, unless you were admissible based on your high school record and SAT scores, OR if you have an AA degree completed.  So for example, if you want to be admitted for Fall 2012, then you need to have all of the above items completed or in progress during the Spring of 2012.  Join the Maryland Transfer Advantage Program (MTAP) for transfer benefits:  www.montgomerycollege.edu/MTAP Also, see a UM Pre-Transfer Advisor for planning assistance www.transferadvising.umd.edu/
  • Complete an Associate of Arts degree (60 credits) to be guaranteed admission to most Maryland state schools and to increase your chances of finding transfer scholarships!  This guarantee does not apply to competitive majors, but work with an MC counselor to choose courses for  your specific transfer plan to optimize your chances of admission.

SPOTLIGHT ON MORGAN STATE UNIVERSITY

MSU Campus Wide Shot

Morgan State University is located in a residential area of northeast Baltimore City. It is easily accessible from downtown, the Baltimore beltway, and Interstate 95, about an hour's driving distance from Rockville, MD.  Each year, the school enrolls an average of 6,000 students in programs from the baccalaureate level through the doctorate.

Morgan traditionally has placed strong emphasis on the arts and sciences at the undergraduate level and on the preparation of students for advanced study. In addition, it offers a variety of programs in professional fields, including engineering, business, teacher education, architecture, hospitality management and social work.

While Morgan is a historically black institution, it has served students of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. Its mission today is to enroll a student body that is diverse in its socioeconomic and academic status and to provide the full-range of experiences and services that permits it to successfully serve students with a wide variety of goals and needs.

The University awards more bachelor's degrees to African-American students than any campus in Maryland. In many fields, but particularly in engineering and the sciences, Morgan accounts for large percentages of degrees received by African-Americans from Maryland institutions. An above-average percentage of Morgan graduates enter graduate and professional school. Historically, the University has ranked among the top public campuses nationally in the number of black graduates receiving doctorates.

Morgan offers generous transfer scholarships for students who have an Associate's degree from a community college.
