We're so glad you're considering applying to University of Maryland University College, and we look forward to welcoming you. New students and those students who have not registered for classes at UMUC in the past two years will need to apply for admission.
Graduate Admissions Criteria
At UMUC, we offer a streamlined, achievement-based admissions process that does not require the GRE or GMAT for most programs.
- Applicants for graduate certificate and master's degree programs must complete and submit an application for admission along with a nonrefundable application fee and an official transcript indicating completion of a bachelor's degree or higher from a regionally accredited degree-granting university or college. Degrees from other accredited institutions may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
- Applicants to the Doctor of Management and Doctor of Management in Community College Policy and Administration have different requirements.
- Some graduate programs require the submission of additional information before an admissions decision can be made. See specific master's degrees for more details.
