We are delighted to announce the launch of Degrees to Succeed, a new partnership with the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC). This partnership reaffirms our commitment to the success of our transfer students. Degrees to Succeed builds on numerous partnerships between CCBC and UMBC including the Transfer Student Alliance (TSA) program by providing a pathway for all associates degree-completers seeking to continue their bachelor’s degree studies at UMBC.
CCBC students committed to matriculating to UMBC after earning their associates degree will benefit from numerous Degrees to Succeed opportunities including pre-advising, joint programming, access to campus events, guaranteed admissions, and priority scholarship consideration. Additionally, this partnership reaffirms our commitment to continue acknowledging and fully leveraging the associates degree in students’ progress to degree completion including maximizing the awarding and application of transfer credit. We look forward to welcoming and engaging our first Degrees to Success students beginning Fall 2022.
The Degrees to Succeed initiative supports the goals of the Strategic Enrollment Plan (SEP) and the University Innovation Alliance (UIA) to enhance transfer student success and increase the number and diversity of degree completers.
Thank you to our many campus partners who were instrumental in bringing this important partnership to fruition including Undergraduate Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, and Enrollment Management.
