The Associate of Science in Engineering degree provides the opportunity for a seamless transfer to the following Maryland state and private colleges for a Computer Engineering major:

  • University of Maryland College Park
  • University of Maryland Eastern Shore
  • The Johns Hopkins University
  • University of Maryland Baltimore County
  • Capitol College
  • Loyola College in Maryland

In addition to the courses below, students transferring to the University of Maryland College Park should take CHEM-106 or CHEM-198 (CHEM-198, Chemistry Topics for UMCP, is offered in the winter term only).

Students must meet all admission requirements of the four-year institution to which they intend to transfer. Upon student acceptance by a participating four-year institution, credits earned for the Associate of Science in Engineering will transfer as a block, without review of individual courses, and the transferring student will enter the receiving institution as a junior. The actual credit-value of the block transfer will depend on the receiving institution which must limit the credit earned in or transferred from an associate degree-granting institution to half of the total credits required for the baccalaureate degree. Students are urged to discuss both the acceptance requirements of specific four-year institutions and the total number of credits that will be transferrable an academic advisor. 

To receive the degree, students must earn at least a "C" grade in all technical, mathematics, computer and science courses. The receiving four-year institution is not required to accept credits awarded by Carroll via AP, IB, CLEP and transfer of credit (including transcripted credit) if they do not do so for their own native students. This may result in a reduction in the number of credits transferable and the requirement to re-earn those credits. Students are urged to discuss any such circumstances with an academic advisor prior to scheduling their first term courses.
