Useful Tools

  • Transfer Credit Services. A very useful tool for Transfer Students is the Transfer Credit Services website. There you will find the Database of Transfer Credit Evaluations which allows you to see what courses the University of Maryland accepts from community colleges across the country. We only evaluate transcripts of students who have been accepted to the University of Maryland so this database will help you get an idea of where you currently stand.

  • General Education. Another useful practice for Transfer Students is to become familiar with the General Program Requirements for Undergraduate Students. First, determine if you fall into CORE or GenEd. General Education GenEd Transfer Policy

  • Pre-Transfer Advising. Check out the Pre-Transfer Advising website that has some useful information for prospective students, admitted students, community college advisors, parents, and a FAQs section.
