Transfer Students

Transfer students play a pivotal role on campus, offering perspective from their college studies so far, along with a diversity of backgrounds, geographic origins and personal experiences. Want to be part of this mix?

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. Our most successful students have completed an English composition course that satisfies the University’s fundamental studies academic writing requirement and a college-level math course that satisfies the University’s fundamental studies math requirement.

Transfer students are high school graduates who completed, or are in the process of completing, at least 12 semester hours or 18 quarter hours at a regionally accredited college or university.
