Eval Process Education Abroad

All UMD current students who take courses outside the US, must go through the Education Abroad Office to obtain approval prior to departing on their abroad experience. This ensures consistency in the conversion of international credits to UMD semester credits. A current UMD student who did not obtain permission through the Education Abroad Office prior to departing on an abroad experience, must appeal to receive a retroactive approval. Without the appropriate approval, transfer credit cannot be awarded by UMD.

Students who completed an abroad experience at an institution prior to enrolling at UMD, must have the courses evaluated on an individual basis to determine acceptability before transfer credit will be awarded. Please refer to the evaluation process for newly admitted students with international transfer courses, should a transfer course need to be evaluated for acceptability to UMD.

Please contact the Education Abroad Office at educationabroad@umd.edu, should you have questions regarding the evaluation courses for UMD resident credit.

Transfer Course Evaluation Request

Students are responsible for submitting all final official transcripts detailing their entire academic record for courses taken away from UMD. Transfer courses will post to a students' UMD record only from official transcripts received from the institution at which the credit was earned.

Study Abroad courses that do not appear in the Transfer Credit database (TCEQ screen in SIS) must be evaluated for acceptability for transfer to UMD. Course information must be sent to the appropriate academic department for review. Detailed instructions on how to submit a study abroad transfer course for evaluation can be found here: http://www.transfercredit.umd.edu/submiteval.html#ea. Once courses are deemed acceptable by UMD, students will work with their advising college to determine the applicability of the course toward their degree requirements. Note: This process is not required for study abroad courses taken for resident credit.
