Ok, so over 25 percent of MC students transfer to UMD. So here are some resources that could make the process easier.
Maryland Transfer Advantage Program (the pathway to earning your undergraduate degree at UMD)
Students who participate in MTAP have access to (1) transfer advising resources, (2) can take discounted courses at UMD, (3) and are guaranteed admission to the University of Maryland upon successful completion of the program and submission of a transfer application by the priority application deadline.

Meet with a counselor for more information.
After MC, transfer into one of Maryland’s leading universities that offer classes at USG. Students enroll in the university that offers the program they want, take their classes at USG, and earn their degree from their home university. The classes are the same as those taught on the main campus.
