Transfer Planning

Your Stepping-Stone to a Bachelor’s Degree

MC has a long history of successfully preparing students for transfer to four-year institutions.

Earning a degree at MC is the first step on your way to earning a bachelor's degree. A bachelor’s degree is often necessary for competitive jobs and for graduate school. Earning your associate's degree and transferring provides you with a strong educational foundation and saves you money.

Community college transfer students often perform as well or even better at four-year schools than their peers who enroll directly from high school or who transferred from other four-year schools.

Partner Spotlight: Marymount University

Marymount University (MU) is a private, comprehensive Catholic university located in Arlington, Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C. MU offers a wide array of bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees to its nearly 4,000 students. In 2020, MU became the first higher education institution in Virginia to qualify as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI). As defined in Title V of the Higher Education Act, HSI’s are not-for-profit, accredited institutions of higher learning with a full-time equivalent undergraduate student enrollment that is at least 25 percent Hispanic. 

Founded in 1950 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary, MU welcomes people of all backgrounds and faiths and provides an educational environment that promotes dialogue, understanding, and service, as well as intellectual and personal development. A MU education provides a strong liberal arts foundation and solid career preparation by blending theory with hands-on learning. To help prepare students for a career, all undergraduates complete an internship, clinical experience, student-teaching placement, or research project. These internships and experiential learning opportunities strengthen knowledge, test career interests, and provide valuable professional connections that can lead to employment opportunities.

What People are Saying
I’ve had so much support … It just goes to show the power that community colleges can have on students. Frankly, I don’t know if I would’ve been the student that I am now if it weren’t for Montgomery College.
