Transfer Credit from
Community Colleges

Get the community college transfer credits you deserve so you can earn a bachelor's faster.

If you received credit for courses at an approved two-year community college, you may be able to apply your credits toward an associate's degree (for military and veteran students) or bachelor's degree at University of Maryland Global Campus.

UMGC has teamed up with all 16 Maryland community colleges and more than 90 community and technical colleges nationwide. Thanks to these community college alliances, your associate’s degree can be part of a single, integrated curriculum plan that culminates with a bachelor's degree.

How It Works

  • You can transfer up to 45 credits toward an associate's degree from approved two-year colleges or universities or from other combined sources (including credit by examination, military education and training, or other fast paths to credit).
  • You can transfer up to 70 credits toward a bachelor's degree from approved two-year colleges or universities or from other combined sources (including credit by examination, military education and training, or other fast paths to credit).
  • You can transfer up to 9 credits toward an undergraduate certificate from approved two-year colleges or universities or from other combined sources (including credit by examination, military education and training, or other fast paths to credit).

Benefits for Alliance Students

  • Dual enrollment options at your community college and UMGC
  • Guaranteed admission
  • Access to the extensive University System of Maryland library, tutoring, writing assistance, career counseling, computer labs, and more
  • UMGC transfer advising at your community college campus
