We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with the umuc.edu website that may cause performance issues for users. We are working to remedy this, and we ask that you please bear with us. Thank you for your patience.

To receive credit for previous academic study, undergraduate students will need to submit official transcripts to University of Maryland University College. We ask that you send official transcripts from all institutions you previously attended, including high school and any colleges.

We also give credit for industry certifications, professional courses, and vocational and technical training, so be sure to submit the appropriate documentation denoting this experience along with your transcripts. Graduate students must send a transcript indicating completion of at least a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited degree-granting university or college.

To be accepted as official, a transcript must come from the issuing institution in either a sealed, unopened envelope or via an accepted secure electronic delivery method. UMUC cannot accept official transcripts via fax or e-mail, regardless of the source.

Please contact the previous institutions you have attended and request your transcripts be sent to UMUC.

Submit Electronically (Preferred)

UMUC participates with several electronic transcript networks. Whenever possible, UMUC prefers to receive transcripts electronically through a secure delivery method only. Check with your prior institution to determine if they participate in any of the following networks to deliver transcripts through a secure format. If a "send-to" e-mail address is required, please use studentrecords@umuc.edu.

  • SPEEDE
  • Credentials
  • Parchment Exchange
  • National Student Clearing House
  • eSCRIP-SAFE

Frequently Asked Questions About Transcripts

Where can I view the status of any transcripts I had sent to UMUC? +

You can view the status of your transcripts by logging into your student account.

How long does it take for UMUC to receive my official transcripts? +

The delivery time for transcripts varies by the transcript medium, sending institution, and carrier. In general, transcripts sent via mail or parcel service take an average of ten (10) business days. Keep in mind that some transcripts can take longer than that, and transcripts from outside of the United States will take longer. In general, electronic transcripts are typically received within two business days. If UMUC has not received your transcript within the average time frame, you should check with the sending institution to confirm the date sent.

What should I do if a transcript or document was sent to UMUC using my former name or a variation of my name? +

In most cases, we are able to match your document using additional information found on it. However, if you are not able to verify receipt of your document in your student account, contact an admissions counselor.

My transcript was sent to UMUC electronically, but it doesn't show in my account. What should I do? +

Contact your transcript provider to confirm the transcript was submitted, when it was sent, when it was received, and who received it. Students should also allow up to three business days for the transcript to show as received when sent electronically and confirmed as received. Provide this information to your admissions counselor.

Am I required to provide an official transcript(s) for previous education if I plan to enroll as a nondegree-seeking student or if I will audit courses? +

Yes. All applicants planning to enroll in courses at UMUC must provide evidence of high school completion (or its equivalent) or 24 transferable college credits to enroll beyond two terms after admission.

This does not include current students of the University System of Maryland or F-1 students visiting from another institution who receive written permission from their home institution to enroll at UMUC for transfer credit purposes. In either of these cases, we do not require official transcripts; however, unofficial transcripts might be required to confirm that prerequisites are met for specific courses, when needed.

Frequently Asked Questions About High School Transcripts

Why do I need to send my high school transcripts to UMUC? +

UMUC requires you to provide proof that you meet the admission requirement of a high school diploma (or its equivalent). Unless you have at least 24 credits of transferable college credit, you're required to provide transcripts from a regionally accredited or state-approved high school (or GED equivalent) showing graduation.

How do I request my high school transcript? +

Contact your high school and inquire about their transcript request process, which can vary from school to school. If your high school has a website, this is a great source to find related information. Please be aware that some high schools are not open during the summer. If you find that to be the case, follow up with the District Office under which your high school operates. If you are unable to find the information, we recommend contacting the County Board of Education or the State Board of Education from the state in which your high school is located.

Can UMUC waive the high school transcript requirement? +

This requirement is mandated and part of the admissions process and, in most cases, cannot be waived. However, if you have extenuating or special circumstances that prevent compliance with the policy, you can request a special consideration by contacting an admissions counselor.

Will UMUC accept my high school transcript if it is sent electronically? +

Yes. This is UMUC's preferred method of receiving transcripts. For your high school transcript to be "official," UMUC must receive the electronic transcript via one of the following transcript networks: SPEEDE, Parchment Exchange, National Student Clearing House, eSCRIP-SAFE, or Credentials. If there is a send-to e-mail address required, please use studentrecords@umuc.edu.

Does UMUC offer a generic high school request form I can send to my school? +

As a courtesy, UMUC provides a generic high school request form that you can fill out and submit directly to your high school. Please be aware that each high school may have their own form, procedure, and/or requirements for transcript requests. You should always follow the form and procedure indicated by your high school to assure timely processing of your transcript request.

How do I send records to UMUC if I graduated from high school in another country? +

If you graduated high school in another country, you will need to obtain an external foreign credit evaluation from an approved agency. For more information, review our admissions requirements for international students or contact an admissions counselor.

Will I be enrolled to UMUC if I have a GED or completed a High School Proficiency Test and never earned a high school diploma? +

If you have completed a GED or other High School Proficiency Examination that is recognized by your state, you will need to submit the official documents. They are received and processed just like regular high school transcripts. We recommend finding the appropriate body in your state if you need assistance to order a copy of your GED or HSP Examination. Each state has different rules and requirements as well as different test administrators and record keepers.
