"My experience at Chesapeake College put me on the right path towards my educational goals. The transfer advisor showed me how to use ARTSYS, which is a transfer guide for course equivalencies to Maryland colleges. University of Baltimore accepted all of my Chesapeake College credits and I entered as a junior. In addition, I received the Wilson Presidential Transfer Scholarship. This scholarship is paying for my bachelor's program in Human Services Administration."
