Associate of Science in Engineering (ASE) Transfer Students
The following information applies to students who are earning an Associate of Science in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering degree from a Maryland public community college. If you do not fall within this category, please visit our transfer student page.
About the ASE Degree
The ASE was developed to help ease students’ transfer from two-year to four-year engineering programs and to help expand the pipeline into engineering careers. It is a transfer-oriented degree built around an outcomes-based statewide agreement. The ASE degree is designed to transfer as a degree, rather than on a course-by-course basis, into parallel four-year engineering programs in Maryland.
Please note that currently not all Maryland community colleges offer the ASE degree. Be sure to check with your community college to make sure the degree is available. For more information on the degree program, please visit the Maryland Higher Education Commission ASE Website.
The ASE degree does not guarantee admission into the A. James Clark School of Engineering. ASE transfer students will need to meet the gateway requirements outlined by the Clark School. The transfer admissions process for the Clark School of Engineering is handled by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Clark School's Undergraduate Advising Office. We strongly encourage prospective transfer students to contact these offices so they can learn about the transfer admissions process and the requirements for admissions into the Engineering programs.
