SU announces policy change for community college transfers
SALISBURY, Md. – Salisbury University is making it easier for community college students to transfer to SU.
Starting next fall, all Associate of Arts, Associate of Arts in Teaching, and Associate of Science degrees issued by any Maryland community college will fully satisfy SU’s general education requirements.
Students transferring to SU from an in-state community college to pursue their first bachelor’s degree will automatically be eligible to receive the University’s Maryland Community College Transfer Grant. We’re told this award provides $250 per semester for those continuing to meet satisfactory academic progress.
“Once students transfer to SU with one of these degrees, they immediately can begin pursuing classes related to their majors and minors,” said Beth Skoglund, SU director of admissions. “This not only will make the transition from community college to SU smoother, but it will streamline their time to a bachelor’s degree.”
