Engineering - Arts and Sciences Transfer Recommendation

Program Information:

Associate of Arts

Faculty Advisor: Maria Burness · Phone: 410-386-8526 · Email:

This program is intended to meet the goals of students who are interested in engineering fields other than Electrical and Computer Engineering. Students interested in electrical or computer engineering should generally register for the appropriate ASE program. This program may meet the needs of students interested in electrical or computer engineering whose circumstances prevent them from completing the ASE program.

While an Associate of Arts, Arts and Sciences degree requires 60 credits (29 of which are electives) engineering students must meet high academic standards which includes more than the minimum credits required to graduate as shown in the recommended course list. Students should plan their academic programs after checking the specific program requirements and procedures of the transfer institutions they expect to attend and conferring with an academic advisor.

Most four-year engineering programs will require a minimum grade of C to transfer of any technical, mathematics, computer, or science course. The receiving four-year institution is not required to accept credits awarded by Carroll Community College via AP, IB, CLEP and transfer of credit (including transcripted credit) if they do not do so for their own native students. Students are urged to discuss any such circumstances with an academic advisor prior to scheduling their first term courses.

Diversity/ World View requirement met (ENGL-102).

The Carroll diploma will specify the degree conferred (i.e. Associate of Arts). Students may take 29 credits from any subject to fulfill Carroll graduation requirements and work toward transfer-college course requirements. Arts and Sciences recommendation program titles (i.e. Electrical Engineering) will not appear on the Carroll transcript or diploma.
