University of Maryland University College has partnered with the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES), the education arm of the National Institutes of Health. Through this partnership, eligible students may transfer credit from their FAES courses toward specific courses in The Graduate School at UMUC. The programs that apply to these courses are as follows:

The partnership only allows for the transfer of six credits toward the Master's degree programs and three credits toward the graduate certificate program. Please note that it may take up to three FAES courses to transfer in lieu of a UMUC course.

The FAES courses that can be transferred to satisfy UMUC course requirements are as follows:
