Transfer Agreements

  • Carroll's transfer programs are designed to fulfill requirements of most colleges and universities. It is important to select your courses carefully and align choices with the program at the receiving institution. 

    ARTSYS, the articulation system of the University System of Maryland, facilitates transferring by providing course equivalencies and Recommended Transfer Programs (RTPs) at Maryland colleges and universities.

    In addition to those agreements, which comprise most majors, Carroll maintains some special agreements with the following colleges and universities:
