Transfer Credit Services (TCS) provides accurate and timely information about undergraduate transfer policies and procedures to transfer advisors and students.
Additionally, TCS oversees and supports the undergraduate transfer evaluation process, which includes: determining the acceptability of courses, awarding credit by the University of Maryland, and maintaining the database of transfer course evaluations.
All courses evaluated by UMD for transfer are searchable in the Transfer Course Database.
Students must follow certain steps to have courses taken at another institution evaluated for transfer to UMD.
Permission to Enroll
Students who wish to take courses at another institution while enrolled at UMD, must complete a Permission to Enroll request.
Prior Learning Credit
Students have several opportunities to receive undergraduate credit for knowledge and achievements gained through prior learning.
Students may be eligible to transfer courses completed at UMD back to their previously attended Maryland public community college to earn an associate's degree.
