Credit Evaluation: How do I get my transfer credits evaluated?

Undergraduate Transfer Credit Evaluation

All University of Maryland University College Bachelor’s degrees require at least 120 credits. If you have completed courses from a four-year college or a community college, some of those credits could be counted toward your undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland University College.

You may transfer up to 90 semester hours of credit from approved four-year colleges or universities and up to 70 semester hours from approved two-year community colleges.
You can also earn credit towards your degree from college-level learning you gained through work, military experience, training, or graduate or international study.

All students must complete at least 30 semester hours with the University of Maryland University College.

Official transfer credit reviews can be completed, but only for students who have already applied for admission to the University of Maryland University College. The official review will be completed upon receipt of all transcripts/documents. Unofficial reviews, or tentative evaluations, can be completed for prospective students using unofficial transcripts. Please contact an Admissions Advisor to request this review.
Note: It takes approximately 10-15 calendar days to complete an official review, or Academic Advising Report (AAR). While you wait, you can contact an Admissions Advisor to ask about courses you can enroll in that will not conflict with any anticipated results of your transcript evaluations.
