Transferring to Highly Selective College or University

Monroe Community College students have a proven record of successful transfer to many prestigious colleges and universities. The services offered by transfer counselors at MCC assist students in becoming stronger candidates for admission. Some of the colleges and universities that students have transferred to include but are not limited to:

Amherst College Hobart & William Smith Colleges University of Massachusetts
American University Mount Holyoke College University of Michigan-Ann Arbor
Boston College The Ohio State University University of N. Carolina Chapel Hill
Boston University Purdue University University of Richmond
Bryn Mawr Smith College University of Rochester
Columbia University University of California at Berkeley Syracuse University
Cornell University University of California at Los Angeles Wellesley College
George Washington University University of Maryland Yale University

As a result of previously funded efforts by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, MCC partnered with Cornell University to offer specialized programming leading to MCC students becoming candidates for transfer admission. Relationships with other highly selective colleges and universities including Amherst College, Mt. Holyoke College, Columbia University School of General Studies, Smith College, and the University of North Carolina have grown out of what was started by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation grant.

Transfer Services cannot guarantee admission to any transfer institution outside of a student enrolled in one of MCC’s 2+2 Dual Admission programs. We can say that the assistance given will make you a stronger candidate for admission to the college of your choice. If you would like to further discuss transfer options to these and other selective colleges and universities, please contact Advisement and Transfer Services at 292-2400 to schedule an appointment with a Transfer Counselor.
