Transfer Studies (A.A.) Degree Requirements

Have transfer questions? Chances are we have an answer to help you navigate the transfer process.

Can I transfer to schools other than those in the University System of Maryland?

Absolutely. AACC is a regionally accredited institution and most general education courses are transferable, but how they transfer and whether they meet your graduation requirements will vary from college to college.

When should I transfer from Anne Arundel Community College?

You may transfer at any time provided you meet the four-year institution’s admission requirements. Typically, you must meet minimum credit and grade point average requirements which vary from institution to institution.

What is the maximum number of credits I can transfer?

Generally, four-year institutions will award transfer credit for one-half of the baccalaureate program but not more than 70 credits.

If I transfer prior to completing program requirements, can I still earn an associate degree from Anne Arundel Community College?

Yes! There is a statewide agreement whereby up to 45 credits that a student earns toward a bachelor’s degree at any public four-year higher education institution in the state are transferrable to any community college in the state for credit toward an associate degree. It’s called reverse transfer.
