Evaluation of Transfer Credit
At University of Maryland Global Campus, you can get a head start on a career-boosting graduate program with transfer credits. You could be eligible to transfer up to 6 credits toward your master's degree or up to 3 credits toward your graduate certificate.
You may transfer exactly 6 credits toward the MBA or MS in Cybersecurity Technology program if you earned those credits at an approved institution and the course content is equivalent to the introductory course. You must complete a Graduate Transfer Credit Evaluation to find out if your credits may transfer.
As you are considering this transfer process, make sure your previous credits meet the following criteria:
- You earned the credits at the graduate level.
- You did not use the credits to meet the requirements for any degree you previously earned or expect to earn.
- You earned the credits within the time limit for the degree or certificate.
- You earned a B (3.0) or higher in the courses considered for transfer. (These grades will not be included in the calculation of your GPA at UMGC.)
- You earned the credits at an approved institution.
- The credits are either equivalent to graduate-level coursework or recommended for graduate-level credit by the American Council on Education or other nationally recognized bodies or as part of an approved articulation agreement.
- Your advisor and program director will determine which transfer credits are relevant to your program.
Approved institutions include those accredited by the following regional associations:
- Higher Learning Commission
- Middle States Association on Higher Education
- New England Commission of Higher Education
- Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities
- Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges
- Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges
- Western Association of Schools and Colleges Senior College and University Commission
Credits from other accredited institutions may be approved on a case-by-case basis.
