Transfer Credit Services

The Mission of Transfer Credit Services (TCS) is to facilitate the evaluation of transfer credit awarded by the University of Maryland and to provide information and assistance to transfer advisors and prospective students. TCS is a joint effort between the Office of the Registrar and Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

Students and advisors generally work together to decide how courses fit into a student's individual academic program based on the awarding of transfer credit by the University. The evaluation of course equivalencies and acceptance of transfer courses at the University is determined by the department that oversees the scope and content of the subject matter. At present the University of Maryland has over 300,000 current and historic evaluations in the Transfer Course Database.

Students who have already been admitted and are currently enrolled at UMD need to have a final official transcript sent to University of Maryland upon completion of all courses and any degrees at previous institution. The transcripts should be sent to:

Office of the Registrar
University of Maryland
1113 Mitchell Building
College Park, MD 20742
