At University of Maryland Global Campus, your past education counts. Our flexible transfer credit policies allow you to transfer more credits than you might at other schools. We're committed to help you get the credits you deserve so you can focus on completing your degree.

Transfer Credits from Four-Year Schools

If you've taken courses at an approved four-year college or university and earned a C or 2.0 GPA or better, you could be able to apply these credits toward an associate's (for military and veteran students) or bachelor's degree.

You can transfer up to 45 credits toward an associate's or up to 90 credits toward a bachelor's from approved four-year colleges or universities or from other combined sources (including credit by examination, military education and training, or other fast paths to credit). We also accept up to 9 credits toward undergraduate certificates, up to 3 credits toward graduate certificates, and up to 6 credits toward select master's degrees.

Find Out How Close You Are to a Degree

Before you even apply, you can work with our admissions advisors to see how many credits will transfer and which academic program is the best fit based on your past college study. If you have unofficial transcripts, your admissions advisor can provide a preliminary estimate to help you find out just how close you are to a degree.

Get an Official Transfer Credit Evaluation

After you apply, you can submit official transcripts to have an official evaluation completed. If you've already had a preliminary estimate, you can register for your first semester knowing that you're taking the right classes. We can process your official evaluation as soon as all transcripts have been received.
