(Rockville, MD) —The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) invites prospective students and guests to learn more about the USG campus and the wide variety of degree programs offered by its university partners at the upcoming Undergraduate and Graduate Open House on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
USG is a regional higher education center of the University System of Maryland that offers approximately 80 undergraduate and graduate degree programs from nine different state universities, all on one convenient campus in Montgomery County. Undergraduate programs at USG are geared to serving transfer students, as the universities offering the bachelor’s degree programs provide the third and fourth year coursework. Students admitted into the university programs complete their first two years at Montgomery College — where they can benefit from significant cost-savings on a four-year degree via the “2+2 pathway” — or at another college or university.
Attendees of the fall Undergraduate and Graduate Open House will be able to tour the campus, including USG’s new Biomedical Sciences and Engineering (BSE) building. They will also be able to meet with program representatives to learn about admission requirements for each of the degree programs, the ability to transfer credits from Montgomery College and other institutions, career tracks, scholarships and financial aid.
For those attending the open house, parking will be available free of charge in the campus’s Shady Grove Garage, which is located at the corner of Shady Grove Road and Darnestown Road. USG Student Ambassadors will direct attendees from the garage to the event. Handicapped parking is also available in parking lot 2 or the Traville Gateway Garage. Individuals who park in the Traville Garage should take a ticket from the gate when they arrive and ask for a voucher when they check in at the event, to exit free of charge.
