Transfers & Credits

Apply your previous college, work, or military experience toward your degree to save time and money.

With our flexible transfer credit policies, you can earn your undergraduate or graduate degree on a fast track. We accept many kinds of transfer credit. You can even earn credit for what you've learned on the job or in the military. At the end of the day, we focus on helping busy professionals like you earn the credit you deserve so you can graduate sooner, save money, and prepare for your next success. As the #1 public university for transfer students, we understand your needs and know how to get you the most credit for your past learning.


Fast Paths to Credit

Busy professionals have lots of options to create fast paths to a degree at UMGC. We recognize that college-level learning happens in many places outside of the classroom—whether it's on the job, in the military, or through life or volunteer experiences.

3D Scholars Program

The 3D Scholars Program, a partnership between UMGC, PGCPS, and PGCC, aims to make a respected college education affordable for local high school students in Maryland.
