If you've recently graduated from University of Maryland Global Campus, congratulations are in order! And we have some more good news: You could be eligible for further credentials that will save time and money. You can turn a certificate into a degree, an associate's into a bachelor's, or a bachelor's into a master's. Check out these opportunities and level up for less.
Certificate to Degree
Associate's to Bachelor's
UMGC offers Associate of Arts degrees for active-duty military servicemembers and their spouses, veterans, reservists, and members of the National Guard. Your associate's degree gets you halfway toward fulfilling bachelor's degree requirements.
If you're not affiliated with the military, the Reverse Transfer program still allows you to earn an associate's while studying at UMGC. The program is designed to allow you to transfer UMGC credits back to participating community colleges, so you can earn an associate's while you work toward your bachelor's.
Second Bachelor's Degree
Whether you're making a career change or supplementing your prior education and experience, if you've already received a bachelor's degree from UMGC or another school, you can broaden your education by earning a second bachelor's degree in as little as a year's time and 30 credits!
Fast-Track a Master's Degree with Vertical Pathways
Several programs at UMGC feature fast paths between undergraduate and graduate degrees that allow students to apply undergraduate credits toward master's degree requirements, saving time and money. These opportunities are outlined on our Vertical Pathways webpage.
