USM ConnectEd Pathways

SMCC and USM have a partnership for success called ConnectEd Pathways. This innovative partnership provides students from selected programs a smooth and simple transfer path to compatible programs at USM upon completion of their associate degree.

Both SMCC and USM will offer advising and support services to prepare these students for their transfer to USM. As an added bonus, USM will waive any application fees for students transferring from SMCC to USM.

What are the benefits of ConnectEd Pathways?

  • SMCC students are able to transfer seamlessly to select USM programs that prepare them for successful careers in high-demand and emerging industries.
  • Qualifying SMCC students do not need to go through an additional application process at USM.
  • SMCC students will not have to take unnecessary credits, saving them time and money.
