Transfer Students

Who can apply?

Students entering UMD with a transfer GPA of 3.3 or above and with no more than 60 credits completed (and applicable at UMD) at the end of the semester you apply.

When to apply?

Transfer students can apply for admittance into University Honors anytime after being admitted to UMD, but before beginning classes. We will make offers based on seat availability as we receive them. Early applications are more likely to be successful.

How to apply

We evaluate transfer students on four criteria. The admissions essay, transfer GPA, recommendation letter, and list of extracurricular activities. Submit the following four components to complete the University Honors application:

  1. Personal Statement

  2. One letter of recommendation from an academic/educational contact

  3. A list of extracurricular activities engaged in during college

  4. An official copy of your transcript
