Your hands-on experience is useful in the field. But did you know it can also help you save time and money toward your degree at University of Maryland Global Campus? You may be able to earn college credit by transferring your vocational and technical training to UMGC.

How it Works

After you apply to UMGC, have the organization/s where you received the vocational or technical training send a record of your training to studentrecords@umuc.edu. Vocational and technical credit from UMGC-approved institutions or American Council on Education-approved organizations may be applied to degrees at UMGC.

Examples of training from UMGC-approved institutions that can translate to credit include the following:

  • AC/DC circuits
  • Aircraft maintenance
  • Critical care
  • Data entry
  • Dental radiography
  • Emergency room technician
  • Emergency vehicle operation
  • Inventory control
  • Rescue operations
  • Storekeeping
  • Typing
  • Vehicle maintenance
  • Voltage regulation equipment
  • Warehouse practices
