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. You may be able to use college-level course work that you have already completed to satisfy degree requirements and 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 complete the admission application and 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 a 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.
  • Once official transcripts have been evaluated by Montgomery College, you will be notified through MC email. Transcripts are evaluated as they are received so you may receive multiple notifications if you have submitted transcripts from multiple colleges and/or universities.
  • Non-degree-seeking and visiting students do not need to submit official transcripts. They may present unofficial transcripts to the Office of Counseling and Advising  or a departmental advisor to be waived into a course that has prerequisites that have been met at another college or university.
