New pipeline created to ease transfer process for future Carroll Retrievers

Published: Apr 24, 2024

UMBC and Carroll Community College recently signed a new dual-admissions agreement that will offer students who transfer to UMBC directly from Carroll a clear pathway to a bachelor’s degree after completing an associate degree at Carroll.

UMBC President Valerie Sheares Ashby and Carroll Community College President James D. Ball, along with Rosalie Mince, provost at Carroll, signed the memorandum of understanding on April 10 during a ceremony held at Carroll.

The agreement, which goes into effect for students planning to transfer to UMBC, establishes a collaboration between Carroll and UMBC that encourages Carroll students to graduate with an associate degree prior to transferring to receive guaranteed admission to UMBC. Students transferring from Carroll through this program will receive an application fee waiver, and students will have access to a pre-transfer advisor at UMBC for academic planning to ensure their Carroll courses align with their expected bachelor’s degree.

“UMBC’s partnership with Carroll Community College reaffirms our commitment to the recruitment, enrollment, and graduation of transfer students,” said President Sheares Ashby. “By building on successful programs like the Transfer Student Alliance and Transfer Plus, we can, together, make the very best education accessible to every student who desires it. I am so pleased to welcome future CCC students into the UMBC community so we can fully support them in achieving their goals.”
