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. U.S. News & World Report has recognized UMGC as the school with the most transfer students in 2022. We understand the needs of transfer students and know how to get you the most credit for your past learning.
At the undergraduate level, UMGC offers a variety of alternative paths to credit, including credit for prior learning, which allows you to earn credit via Course Challenge and Portfolio. We also offer a way to earn credit for Workplace Learning, which involves setting up a learning agreement with your employer and a faculty mentor and submitting academic assignments related to your Workplace Learning experience.
Depending on your course of study and your experience, you may be able to earn undergraduate credit for prior management experience. You'll want to talk with an advisor about your options, such as enrolling in Portfolio coursework and documenting and certifying the college-level learning you earned on the job.
At UMGC, we are proud to have served the U.S. military since 1949 and to offer active-duty military servicemembers and veterans ways to earn credit for their service to our nation. We grant credit for study completed in service schools and in Military Occupational Specialties on the basis of recommendations made in the American Council on Education Military Guide. Other paths to credit, like our Prior Learning and Workplace Learning options, are also open to military servicemembers and veterans.
