Program Mission: The Chesapeake College Transfer Studies Advanced Certificate provides a flexible curriculum in the liberal arts and sciences for students who intend to transfer to a four-year institution prior to completing a degree at Chesapeake College. The program is equivalent to one full-time year of college and is appropriate for dual enrollment students and students undecided about a major. The credits earned in this advanced certificate may also be applied to other Chesapeake College certificate and degree requirements.
Program Description: The Transfer Studies Certificate is designed for students who intend to transfer to a four-year college or university. The flexible program combines core general education requirements and elective credit to create a certificate program that can be built upon at a four-year college or university. Students should acquaint themselves with the requirements of the major department at the institution to which transfer is contemplated and consult with the Chesapeake College Transfer Advisor in planning an appropriate program of study. The Transfer Advisor can also provide additional information regarding the transfer requirements of institutions within the University of Maryland System.

Facilitate proficiency in content knowledge and skills for the College’s general education core requirements.
