Transfer Credit Services

Transfer Credit Services (TCS) is a partnership between the Office of the Registrar and Office of Undergraduate Admissions with the goal of providing 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 to determine the acceptability of courses, the awarding of credit by the University of Maryland and maintains a Database of Transfer Course Evaluations. The evaluation of transfer courses at the University is determined by the department that manages the scope and content of the subject matter. This review is based on the comparison of the transfer course to courses offered for degree programs at the University of Maryland. A course that is deemed acceptable for transfer to the University of Maryland will receive one of the following types of evaluations:

  • direct equivalency to a University of Maryland course (whether within or outside of the major),
  • no direct equivalency, but satisfies a general education requirement, or
  • no direct equivalency, but is accepted as a general elective.

Students and advisors will work together to decide how courses fit into a student's individual academic program and are applicable to degree requirements based on the awarding of transfer credit by the University.

Students who have already been admitted and are currently enrolled at UMD need to have a final official transcript sent to University of Maryland upon completion of all courses and any degrees at their previous institution. The transcripts should be sent to:

Office of the Registrar
University of Maryland
7999 Regents Drive
College Park, MD 20742
