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 & career advisor, transfer pathway advisor and or specialty 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 for their intended major at the four-year institution. 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 Office of Transfer Services, 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.

Articulation Agreements

Articulation agreements are written agreements for the awarding of credit by an institution of higher education for completing coursework or prior learning at another institution or entity. To increase transfer opportunities and baccalaureate degree options for students, Prince George’s Community College has developed 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 can transfer from Prince George’s Community College by specifying required curricula and policies that will facilitate the student’s transition from one institution to another. Articulation agreements are maintained with the institutions listed on the following pages for students completing their studies at Prince George’s Community College.

In addition to articulation agreements, the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC), has outlined three other types of articulation agreements Prince George’s Community College supports:

Program Transfer Agreement, an articulation agreement between a receiving institution and a sending institution that sets forth the course and other degree requirements within a single bachelor’s degree program offered by the receiving institution that may be completed at the sending institution.

Course Transfer Agreement, an articulation agreement regarding the reward of credit by a receiving institution for courses completed at the sending institution that are not specific to completing an academic program at the receiving institution.

Prior Learning Transfer Agreement, an articulation agreement for a receiving institution toward academic credit for demonstrated proficiency, a satisfactory score on a specific assessment, or other learning experience completed at an institution of postsecondary education or other entity.
