Partnership with The Universities at Shady Grove
USM Logo Through a unique partnership with The Universities at Shady Grove (USG), Montgomery College students can earn bachelorís degrees from a number of Maryland four-year institutions offering programs in Montgomery County.  This partnership between MC and USG allows students to complete an associateís degree at Montgomery College and then complete the final two years of study for a bachelorís degree at the Shady Grove Center, conveniently located in Rockville.  Although the program is aimed at full-time students, part-time options are available.
USG represents a new concept in advanced education that serves as a unique collaboration among these degree-granting University of Maryland institutions. The following University of Maryland System institutions are currently (Spring '03) involved in this partnership: Bowie State University; Towson University; University of Baltimore; University of Maryland, Baltimore; University of Maryland, Baltimore County; University of Maryland, College Park; University of Maryland, Eastern Shore; and University of Maryland University College.

Institutions at USG currently offer undergraduate degree programs in accounting, biological sciences, business administration, computer science, computer and information science, general business (also offered with a specialization in international business), hotel and restaurant management, information systems, marketing, nursing (basic and R.N. to B.S.N.), psychology, social work, and special education (elementary through middle school track).  Here is a table showing the sponsoring USM Institution and related MC Departments for each program

Due to the nature of the specialized programs and course offerings at USG, it is important that students interested in continuing their education at USG carefully plan their Montgomery College program of studies.  For more information, contact a Montgomery College advisor, call USG at 301-738-6023 and visit the MC Transfer Information site and the undergraduate programs section of the USG website.

Alliance of Montgomery College and University of Maryland University College
UMUC Logo Students can complete both the associateís degree and the bachelorís degree in the areas of accounting, biotechnology, business administration, communications, fire science,  information science/computer science, or management  in Montgomery County through the Alliance partnership between Montgomery College and the University of Maryland University College (UMUC)
As a part of this initiative, a student can submit one joint application and can enroll at either institution or at both simultaneously. Alliance students have access to services and facilities at both institutions and have an opportunity to earn college-level credits for learning gained through life and work experience.

Students who follow Montgomery Collegeís degree curricula in the alliance disciplines at any of the Collegeís campuses will be assured of transferability of their course work to UMUC.  Students interested in this opportunity or in seeking degrees in other disciplines should consult a counselor or an adviser for transfer information on UMUC requirements.
