Whether you're focused on advancing your Federal career or continuing your education, University of Maryland Global Campus offers many programs to help you reach your goals.

And when you apply through the UMGC Federal Education and Development Program, you can complete your program at a substantial savings.

1. Apply

Complete the UMGC application for admission. Remember to select "U.S. Federal Government" as your employer on the application form. As a new student under the Federal Education and Development Program, you'll receive a waiver of the application fee. 

2. Verify Your Employment

Complete a tuition benefits verification form as an employee or spouse/dependent for each term that you plan to enroll in courses.

3. Submit Transcripts for Transfer Credit Evaluation

Request official transcripts from any of your previous institutions of higher education and have them sent to UMGC.

For undergraduate programs, you must submit official transcripts from all institutions previously attended, including high school and any colleges.

For most graduate programs, you can enroll in and begin earning your first 6 credits at UMGC as long as you submit official transcripts demonstrating completion of a bachelor's degree by the last day of the first term of enrollment at UMGC. Some exceptions apply. See graduate admissions for more details.
