Credit and Advanced Standing for Prior Learning

As a degree-seeking student at Montgomery College, you can earn credit and advanced standing for prior learning to apply toward graduation. Advanced standing allows you to use work you've already done to satisfy degree requirements, allowing you to maximize the college-level work that you have already completed and to reach your educational goals in a shorter time period.

  • Degree-seeking students may have coursework from a U.S. College or University evaluated for transfer credit to Montgomery College.
  • You must be a degree seeking student at Montgomery College to have your work evaluated.  If you have not yet declared a program of study (major), complete  Curriculum Change form  and return it to the Office of Admissions and Records .
  • To receive credit, all transcripts must be official and received by the Office of Admissions and Records directly from the institution bearing the college seal, date, and appropriate signatures. Hand-carried transcripts must be in a sealed envelope from the sending institution.
  • Non-degree-seeking students  may present unofficial transcripts to the  Office of Counseling and Advising  or a departmental advisor to be waived into a course that has prerequisites they have met at another college or university.
