߲ݴý and the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) have partnered to offer transfer students a seamless and efficient path toward earning a bachelor’s degree through the new Degrees to Succeed program.

Degrees to Succeed provides students with the benefits of both institutions. Students start their coursework at CCBC and earn their Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree before transferring their credits to Stevenson where they can begin to pursue their bachelor’s degree as a third-year student. Additional benefits for CCBC students participating in the Degrees to Succeed program include:

  • Co-advising with ߲ݴý advisors to ensure CCBC courses align with Stevenson’s programs
  • Stevenson will accept all transfer credits, Associate of Arts (A.A.) and Associate of Science (A.S.) degree programs
  • Potential financial incentives—up to $2,000 per year for up to two years—available for eligible students through Stevenson’s Transfer Advantage program
  • Degrees to Succeed students are encouraged to apply for additional Stevenson scholarships
  • Stevenson ID card allowing CCBC students entry to select events and activities

“We are pleased to partner with ߲ݴý to give CCBC students an opportunity to fast-track their educational goals,” said CCBC President Sandra Kurtinitis. “One student, two institutions, one experience—that’s the magic of Degrees to Succeed. Students have peace-of-mind knowing that they have already been accepted into ߲ݴý with the successful completion of their associate degree. The transfer will be seamless and students will have a familiarity with the Stevenson campus and processes through the early access to Stevenson advisors as well as select events and activities.”

Stevenson President Elliot Hirshman met with CCBC Provost and Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs Dr. Joaquin Martinez at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 20 in Stevenson’s Philip A. Zaffere Library to officially sign the agreement. The signing ceremony was attended by academic leaders from both institutions.

“We are excited to be the first independent university in Maryland to participate in the Degrees to Succeed program at CCBC,” said Elliot Hirshman, Ph.D., President of ߲ݴý. “At Stevenson, we are dedicated to fostering student success and connecting students to their careers. By streamlining the transfer process, our partnership will help more students achieve their educational goals, succeed in their academic careers, and build a foundation for future success.”
