Busy professionals have many options to create fast paths to a degree at University of Maryland University College. We recognize that college-level learning can happen many places outside of the classroom, whether it's on the job, in the military, or through life or volunteer experiences. We've developed numerous ways for students to demonstrate that learning, earn credit for it, and save time and money toward a degree.
