College & University Transfer Credits
Start your UMUC degree with transfer credits from your past education.
Fast Paths to Credit
We've developed numerous ways for students to demonstrate that learning, earn credit for it, and save time and money toward a degree.
One UMUC - Europe, Stateside, and Asia
You can seamlessly transfer credits between UMUC's divisions in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
A student who has done satisfactory work in UMUC Europe may enroll in another UMUC division without having to be readmitted.
Because faculty and courses in UMUC Europe and UMUC Asia meet the same academic standards as those for UMUC Stateside, courses offered overseas carry resident credit identical to that earned on the home campus.
When departing Europe, students should transfer to UMUC Stateside or UMUC Asia by using the online Division Transfer Request form through MyUMUC.
