The University of Baltimore and Baltimore City Community College are entering into a new partnership and articulation agreement to ensure that BCCC students will be able to transfer seamlessly to UB. The institutions formally announced the agreement at a signing ceremony on Nov. 21 at BCCC's Liberty Campus. UB President Kurt L. Schmoke and BCCC President Gordon F. May signed a memorandum of understanding concerning the partnership, as did UB Provost Darlene Smith and BCCC Vice President for Academic Affairs Tonja L. Ringgold.
The University of Baltimore's Bee Line transfer program will assist and provide benefits to BCCC students who wish to transfer to UB. The Bee Line transfer program will allow students to transfer as many as 63 credits, receive transfer scholarships if eligible, and become involved in UB’s Helen P. Denit Honors Program if students meet criteria. The Bee Line transfer program also guarantees admission and waives UB’s application fee.
BCCC students make up the University of Baltimore’s second-largest contingent of transfer populations from area community colleges—more than 500 students in the past seven years. Once they enroll at UB, most of them major in business administration, criminal justice, psychology or health systems management.
