All of the credits in the certificate apply to the General Studies Degree and to most of the associate’s degrees at the College of Southern Maryland, so students who decide to remain at the College of Southern Maryland may obtain both a certificate and a degree.

The maximum number of credits accepted in transfer from other institutions to this program is 23.
