Eval Process Education Abroad

All currently enrolled UMD 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 any courses that could potentially be awarded transfer credit:

  • have been evaluated
  • the minimum grade required has been determined
  • the conversion of international credits to UMD semester credits has been determined

A 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.

A student who has completed an abroad experience at an institution prior to being admitted to UMD as an undergraduate degree-seeking student must follow the same process as newly admitted students with international transfer courses. The Education Abroad Office will not be able to assist with the evaluation process of courses taken abroad prior to admission to UMD.

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

Submission of Final Official Transcript to UMD

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

Official sealed transcripts should be sent to the Education Abroad Office:
University of Maryland
Education Abroad
1118 H.J. Patterson Hall
4065 Campus Drive
College Park, MD 20742

Please direct questions regarding education abroad to the Education Abroad Office at educationabroad@umd.edu.

Transfer Course Evaluation Request

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.
