An Option of Arts & Sciences

Intended to provide the basis for transfer to a four-year college engineering course of study. Every course is not applicable to all engineering fields and different schools vary in their transfer requirements. Students entering the program who lack high school precalculus, chemistry or physics must satisfy these requirements before taking MA 210, CH 101 or PY 203. Therefore, it is imperative that each student meets periodically with an advisor to establish and/or confirm a personal direction for future study.

The Career & Transfer Center has a variety of print and electronic resources available to help with transfer planning. ARTSYS, a computerized articulation system created especially to help community college students transfer to Maryland four-year institutions is available, as well as College Source and College Board. College Source also allows students to view college catalogs from across the nation. For more information, visit the Career & Transfer Center, Enrollment Services Building, J-201, 301.846.2594.
