University of Maryland University College has transfer agreements with all 16 Maryland community colleges and more than 90 community and technical colleges nationwide to help streamline the transfer credit process.

How Transfer Credits Work

If you've taken courses at an approved two-year community college, you may be able to apply these credits toward an associate's (for military and veteran students) or bachelor's degree.

You can transfer up to 45 credits toward an associate's or up to 70 credits toward a bachelor's from approved two-year colleges or universities or from other combined sources (including credit by examination, military education and training, or other fast paths to credit).

We also accept up to 9 credits toward undergraduate certificates.

Completion Scholarship

If you graduated with your associate's degree from a participating Maryland community college, you are guaranteed admission to UMUC and you are eligible for the Completion Scholarship. This scholarship enables you to complete your bachelor's degree program for $12,000 or less.

Community College Alliance Program

If you are attending a Maryland community college or another community college that has partnered with UMUC, you can take advantage of many benefits in the community college alliance program, including a waived application fee.

Plus, if you haven't earned an associate's degree and you would like to pursue one, UMUC's Reverse Transfer Program could be the right fit for you. This program allows you to transfer UMUC credits back to participating community colleges and finish an associate's while you work toward your bachelor's at UMUC.

Find Out How Close You Are to a Degree

Before you even apply, you can work with our admissions counselors to see how many credits will transfer and which academic program is the best fit based on your past college study. If you have unofficial transcripts, your admissions counselor can provide a tentative evaluation to help you find out just how close you are to a degree.

Get an Official Transfer Credit Evaluation

After you apply, you can submit official transcripts to have an official evaluation completed. If you've already had a tentative evaluation, you can register for your first semester knowing that you're taking the right classes. We can process your official evaluation as soon as all transcripts have been received.
