Working with other colleges to help you get the right degree

Through shared program arrangements, Montco students, who are residents of Montgomery County, PA, can complete programs of study that are not offered by us but are available at Bucks County Community College, Community College of Philadelphia, Delaware County Community College and Lehigh Carbon Community College. Students who enroll at these peer community colleges must be authorized by the Director of Admissions at both Montco and the host college to be eligible for program enrollment. Additionally, students who are enrolled at a number of peer colleges can complete programs of study at MCCC. The host college's sponsored tuition rate applies.

How to get started in a Shared Program

If you are a Montco student and would like to enroll in a Shared Program at a Peer College:

  1. Submit an application to MCCC
  2. Follow the new student steps and schedule a meeting with your academic advisor. At this time you will need to inform your advisor of your intent to enroll in a Shared Program.
  3. Submit an application to the Peer College that offers the Shared Program of your interest. Follow their new student steps and work with their advising department to register. Confirm whether you will need to take prerequisites at MCCC or at the Peer College.
  4. Email, from your MCCC student email account, to confirm the Shared Program for which you are enrolling at the Peer College. Please include the following information in the email:
    • First and last name
    • MCCC student ID #
    • Student ID # from the Peer College
    • Current address
    • The name of the Shared Program in which you are enrolling
    • The semester you will begin taking classes

Important: Please send this information to each semester you are enrolled at the Peer College to ensure that your tuition is adjusted correctly.

If you are a student at a Peer College and would like to enroll in a Shared Program offered by Montco:

  1. Apply and complete the new student steps at your home school. When meeting with your home school advisor, inform them that you are seeking to participate in the shared transfer program.
  2.  Upon completing any required prerequisites, apply to Montco and complete the New Student Checklist.

Additionally, the admissions office at your home college will need to send a letter to MCCC on your behalf to request in-county tuition. We ask that you confirm this letter is sent.
