Admission to the University of Maryland is competitive. The number of students seeking admission exceeds the number who can be accommodated. In accordance with Maryland Higher Education Commission and Board of Regents transfer polices, certain applicants from Maryland public institutions are given special consideration and are admitted when space is available.
If you’ve graduated from high school and completed a minimum of 12 semester hours or 18 quarter hours at a regionally accredited college or university, we consider you a transfer applicant. Students who have completed fewer than 30 semester or 45 quarter hours at the time of application are expected to submit high school records and SAT and/or ACT scores for review. If you’ve attended more than one institution, we’ll compute a cumulative average for all previous college work.
We’ll consider your academic record and grades received in all college-level courses. You should complete English composition (the equivalent of UMD’s ENGL 101) and college-level math (the equivalent of UMD’s Math 110 or above) before you submit your application.
