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 Maryland state universities on one convenient campus in Montgomery County. Undergraduate programs offered at USG include upper-division, third and fourth year coursework enroute to a bachelor’s degree, as they are intended to serve transfer students who have earned an associate’s degree or completed their first two years of college at another institution, such as Montgomery College.
