Profile of Competitive Transfer Applicants
Maryland Transfer Advantage Program (MTAP)
The Maryland Transfer Advantage Program (MTAP) provides a pathway for AACC students to earn an undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland (UMD).
Students who participate in MTAP have access to transfer advising resources, can take discounted courses at UMD prior to transfer, and are guaranteed admission to the university upon successful completion of the program and submission of a transfer application by the early action application deadline.
Review the program information and eligibility requirements and email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
For more information, check out the VIDEO at https://go.umd.edu/mtapfaq.
Limited Enrollment Programs (LEPs)
The Limited Enrollment Programs (LEP) at the University of Maryland have specific gateway course and GPA requirements for admission. https://lep.umd.edu/
Government & Politics - As of February 7, 2022, GVPT is no longer an LEP for UMD but transfer students should still plan on completing the former gateway courses (PLS111 and MAT135, 230, or 191) prior to transfer. Please set up an appointment with Liz to discuss how this change may affect your academic planning.
LEP programs include:
Environmental Science - Biodiversity and Conservation Biology (other ENSP concentrations are not Limited Enrollment Programs)
Gateway Courses at AACC
Updated 04/11/2022; subject to change without notice. Please check the Transfer Course Database to confirm equivalent gateway courses.
Navigating the UMD Transfer Course Database
Did you know that there is a tool you can use to determine how your prior college credits may transfer to UMD?
The Transfer Course Database allows you to look up courses taken at AACC (and other colleges and universities) to see if/how your credits will transfer. You can view this video for instructions on how to use the database or you can find a step by step guide here.
Do you have prior learning credits (AP, IB, CLEP, Basic Military Training, etc.)? Be sure to review UMD Prior Learning Credit Information as the credit given may be different from AACC.
As of Fall 2022, transfer students may apply a maximum of 70 credits from a community or two-year college or 90 credits from a combination of two and four-year institutions toward a degree at UMD.
Interested in the Health Professions (pre-med/dental/PT/PA, etc.)?
Often students ask what they should major in as a pre-health Terp. Students can choose from any major on campus but should design their academic program to include the required prerequisite courses for their chosen professional track. Once you are attending UMD, you will have access to work with THE REED-YORKE HEALTH PROFESSIONS ADVISING OFFICE to plan appropriately for continuing your education. These advisors do not work with prospective students, but you can visit their site now at https://www.prehealth.umd.edu/ to find helpful info such as which classes you should include in your preparation.
Application Information for Dual Enrollment Students (including AACC's ECAP program)
High school students who would like to be considered for UMD admission for the fall or spring following high school graduation should, per Admissions, apply using the freshman application process and submit their application by the freshman application deadline no matter how many college credits they have earned while attending high school. This includes students completing an associate’s degree prior to or at the same time as graduating from high school.
A student can only be eligible to apply as a transfer student by earning at least 12 college credits after high school graduation or completion of the GED.
If you have additional questions about the application process, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 301-314-8377 or email email@example.com with the subject: "Dual Enrollment Student (Name of your High School)".
