Active-Duty Military Relocation

Earn Your Education Anywhere in the World

When military life puts you on the move, UMUC moves with you.

University of Maryland University College operates from three divisions—U.S., Asia, and Europe—and we serve more than 50,000 students who are military personnel, military spouses and family members, and veterans of the armed forces. So we understand how quickly deployments and assignments to new duty stations can happen.

Don't worry. We make staying in school as easy as possible. If you're on the move, our online courses travel with you. Transferring from one division to another is simple. You don't need to reapply to the university when you move, and divisional transfers are free.1

Easily Transfer Between UMUC in the U.S. and Overseas

If you're active-duty U.S. Army, contact your Army Education Coordinator to change your home school in GoArmy Ed. Within 24 hours, UMUC will be alerted and start the divisional transfer process.

All other military personnel can use our convenient online divisional transfer form. The form is located within MyUMUC. Once you submit the form, we typically process it within 72 hours, and you can check the status anytime in MyUMUC.

UMUC Advisor Julie McCarren

"One of the great things about UMUC is that we offer seamless divisional transfers within the university. You can start courses at one of our three divisions and then jump to a different division if you get stationed somewhere else."
