Seamless Transfer for Maryland Community College Students
To prepare Maryland community college students for a seamless transfer at any point in their educational journey, Stevenson has developed program-specific articulation agreements with many local community colleges. The transfer plans that are part of these agreements help ensure that you are taking the courses that will best meet your community college requirements and prepare you for your coursework at Stevenson. Please see our articulation webpage for additional details.
If you enter Stevenson with an A.A., A.S., or A.A.T. degree from a community college in Maryland, you will have met all of Stevenson’s general education requirements. (A second composition course is required if you haven’t already taken an equivalent course at your community college). General education block transfer is of great value because it allows you to focus on coursework in your major once you get to Stevenson, provides you with more flexibility in course scheduling, and helps ensure timely completion of your bachelor’s degree. Please contact the Admissions Office to discuss how this block transfer option could benefit you.
Stevenson also participates in the Articulation System for Maryland Colleges and Universities (ARTSYS), which allows students in Maryland community colleges to determine how individual courses transfer to Stevenson and to look at recommended transfer plans. Community college students should also work with their transfer counselors to help select classes that will optimize credit transfer. For more information about the credit evaluation process, see Transfer Evaluation.
Transferring from a Four-Year Institution or a Community College Outside of Maryland
Stevenson welcomes transfers from four-year institutions inside and outside of Maryland and community colleges outside of Maryland. To help understand how your courses might transfer to Stevenson, please see our Stevenson Transfer Database.
Paying for College
Please note that you are not considered a transfer student unless you have graduated from high school or obtained a GED and have attended another college or university. High school students who have taken college credits before receiving a high school diploma are considered freshman students.
