Transfer agreements (or “articulation agreements,” as they’re officially called) are formal arrangements between institutions that allow certain credits to transfer seamlessly from one school to the other.

AACC has established transfer agreements with dozens of schools in and outside Maryland for a variety of majors. This gives you lots of options for a smooth transfer.

Some articulation agreements are part of ARTSYS, the Maryland Articulation System, which is intended to aid your transfer from AACC to the University System of Maryland institutions and other participating institutions. Other agreements are established outside of ARTSYS as partnerships between AACC and individual institutions. Those agreements are listed below.

If you have any questions, contact a transfer advisor.


General Transfer Agreements

In addition to transfer agreements for specific areas of study (more on that below), AACC enjoys a few general transfer partnerships with several institutions that go beyond individual subject areas.  

Alliance with University of Maryland Global Campus

Students can be accepted to AACC and University of Maryland Global Campus (formerly UMUC) simultaneously, allowing your associate degree to be part of a single, integrated curriculum plan culminating in a bachelor’s degree. Worksheets for specific majors can be found in the accordion below (Transfer Agreements by Area of Study).

Learn more about the alliance with University of Maryland Global Campus.

Maryland Transfer Advantage Program at the University of Maryland, College Park

The Maryland Transfer Advantage Program (MTAP) is available to help AACC students transfer seamlessly to the University of Maryland.

Learn more about MTAP eligibility and how it works.

BeeLine Dual Admission Program with the University of Baltimore

University of Baltimore (UB) BeeLine Dual Admission program allows students to actively pursue their associate degree while obtaining UB-focused pre-transfer advising. BeeLine program completers are guaranteed admissions and have various opportunities to participate on UB’s campus.

Learn more about the BeeLine program.

Transferring from AACC

These agreements help AACC students who are transferring from AACC to an outside institution to continue their education. The list is organized by partnering institution and then AACC major. The agreements include worksheets, or crosswalks, that specify which AACC courses you should take if planning to transfer to a specific institution for the listed major. These crosswalks and transfer guides are one directional, meaning the information below does not demonstrate how coursework from other institutions transfer to AACC. Use AACC’s Transfer Equivalency Database to see how coursework from other institutions transfer to AACC.
