One UMGC - Europe, Stateside, and Asia

You can seamlessly transfer credits between UMGC's divisions in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.

A student who has done satisfactory work in UMGC Europe may enroll in another UMGC division without having to be readmitted.

Because faculty and courses in UMGC Europe and UMGC Asia meet the same academic standards as those for UMGC Stateside, courses offered overseas carry resident credit identical to that earned on the home campus.

When departing Europe, students should transfer to UMGC Stateside or UMGC Asia by using the online Division Transfer Request form through MyUMGC.
