MU ALERT ISSUED

MC Transfer Students (B.A.)

Did you know that nearly half of all Marymount Interior Design graduates began their undergraduate education at another institution? 
 

The Interior Design department and Office of Undergraduate Admissions are committed to making the transfer process for Montgomery College students as smooth as possible. The following information is provided specifically for MC students interested in completing their B.A. Interior Design degree at Marymount University. If you already have a Bachelors degree, you can learn more about transferring credit towards our First-Professional Masters in Interior Design here.

Transfer Scholarships

There are a number of scholarships, grants, and other forms of financial aid available for MC students transferring to Marymount. You can review the full list of scholarships and grants here

More Info on Transfer Credit

Marymount University requires a grade of C or higher to consider transfer credit for undergraduate courses. In addition to that requirement, the Interior Design department requires a placement portfolio to receive transfer credit for some Interior Design courses. A course-by-course articulation grid is provided below. 

You can read more about the Placement Portfolio process here.
