Transfer Opportunities

Many students who attend Prince George’s Community College do so to prepare for transfer to a four-year college or university. Community college alumni routinely transfer to colleges in Maryland, the Washington metropolitan area, and throughout the United States. From the beginning of their enrollment here, students need to select a program of study which is designed to facilitate transfer. They also should see an academic advisor periodically to evaluate future course selection plans and to determine current transfer criteria at the four-year college or university being considered. Those who plan for this goal and seek professional advice, both early and consistently, may ensure maximum success in the transfer process.

After consulting with an academic advisor, students who intend to transfer to a public college or university within the state of Maryland may use a computerized system known as ARTSYS, developed by the University of Maryland, to determine which of our courses are best suited to their intended four-year major. Students who intend to transfer out of state may still use our curriculum planning guides, available online and from Advising and Transfer Services, to chart the ideal selection of courses.

The department, located in Bladen Hall, Room 124, offers more focused, one-on-one assistance with transfer course planning and selection, especially for those who need help determining which college or university would be best in terms of their intended major and their financial requirements. Call 301-546-0151 for more information about Advising and Transfer Services.

Articulation Agreements

To increase transfer opportunities and baccalaureate degree options for students, Prince George’s Community College has formed articulation agreements with many public and private four-year colleges and universities throughout the metropolitan area, including Maryland state universities. Articulation agreements maximize the number of credits students will be able to transfer from Prince George’s Community College by specifying required curricula and policy that will facilitate the student’s transition from one institution to another. Articulation agreements are maintained with the institutions listed on following pages for students completing their studies at Prince George’s Community College.
