Ok, so over 25 percent of MC students transfer to UMD. So here are some resources that could make the process easier.

Maryland Transfer Advantage Program (the pathway to earning your undergraduate degree at UMD)

Students who participate in MTAP have access to (1) transfer advising resources, (2) can take discounted courses at UMD, (3) and are guaranteed admission to the University of Maryland upon successful completion of the program and submission of a transfer application by the priority application deadline.

Transfer Scholarships Available to Transfer Students

Meet with a counselor for more information.


USG Peeps

After MC, transfer into one of Maryland’s leading universities that offer classes at USG.  Students enroll in the university that offers the program they want, take their classes at USG, and earn their degree from their home university. The classes are the same as those taught on the main campus.

Bob Okroajuzie

Hello, I am Bob Ndubuisi Okoroajuzie. Honestly speaking, Christ is the center of my life or at least I try to make him the center. If it doesn’t relate to Christ, it doesn’t relate to me. I became more fond of him through the reading of his word, the same way you’ll become more fond of me through my blogs. Some are surprised when I tell them things like this, or even comment saying, “Oh you’re one of those”. I sometimes laugh because this is my mindset, but I still have a good time. I know when to be serious and when to relax, so the key component in my life is balance. Loving, honesty, and amusing make up Bob. 

I am currently majoring in Business at Montgomery College. My end goal is to graduate from UMD College Park Business school and attend law school (corporate law). I'm passionate about mentoring students and being mentored. Being mentored at a young age has truly helped shape me as a young man. Truly, being a student blogger is an honor. Sharing my experience at MC and providing information will benefit current and future students at Montgomery College. 

Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.

  1. Wow Bob! This is great information and certainly those dollar amounts are nothing to sneeze at! These appear to be academic based and not need based in any way. Are these guaranteed with the GPA’s mentioned or awarded on an individual, lottery or other basis? In other words, how many students who qualify GPA wise receive these scholarships? As you said, see a counselor to get guidance. It would be a shame to miss out on tuition coverage. Thanks for providing this info!
