Transfer Guidance

  • Complete required developmental courses you may need to take. These are not college-level courses and will not transfer with you.
  • Think about selecting a major. Not every transfer school offers a program in every major.
  • Talk to an advisor/counselor about appropriate courses for your first year based on your transfer goals.
  • Attend a Transfer Fair to see the variety of colleges and universities in the area.
  • Consider the type of transfer experience you desire:
    • Majors offered
    • Size and environment (urban, rural, etc.) of the school
    • Distance from home
    • Costs (which widely varies)

  • If needed, revise your planned program of study based on your first semester experience and be sure that all your courses will transfer to your desired transfer institution(s).
  • Review any program to program agreements MCCC has with four-year schools.
  • Attend a Transfer Fair to speak to representatives from the schools you are most interested in. These are very important contacts
  • Narrow your list of transfer schools to 3 to 5 schools. Check for dual admissions agreements with them.
  • Complete Dual Admissions letters of intent before 30 credits.

  • Meet with your advisor to plan your remaining coursework at MCCC to ensure that the maximum number of courses will transfer and that you will graduate on time.
  • Plan for financial aid (if applicable) at your four-year school(s).
  • Find scholarship opportunities to assist you with costs.

  • Apply for graduation from Montgomery County Community College.
  • Send your application(s) to the four-year school(s).
  • Plan to pay the required deposit (often several hundred dollars) at your transfer college or university.
  • Be sure that your financial aid application is submitted by filling out, or amending, your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
