Credit for courses taken at UMD exchange institutions will be accepted as transfer credit. Courses must be pre-approved by Education Abroad, the student’s academic advisor(s) and the student’s advising college(s). Courses must be taken for a letter grade and students must receive the equivalent grade of C- or better in order to receive credit towards their UMD academic record. The grades for transfer credit courses are not factored into their cumulative GPA and do not show up on their UMD transcript.

Admissions for UMD Exchanges are competitive and applications are reviewed after the published application deadline. There may only be a select number of spaces available for semester or year study abroad at a particular host institution.
To apply to this program, you must complete two main steps:
- Submit a UMD approval application - start by clicking “apply now” at the top of this page. This application allows UMD Education Abroad to approve your study abroad program selection so you may earn credit in a program outside of UMD.
This application will require you to meet with your EA advisor, who will communicate important details related to participating in this program. If you do not complete this application by the stated deadline, you may not receive credit for your study abroad program and will lose your student status for the time you are not studying at UMD.
- Apply directly to the program provider. After receiving UMD approval, you should submit the program application directly to the program sponsor by their deadline. Your program sponsor will determine your official acceptance to a program. You must adhere to the provider's timeline, eligibility standards, and application requirements.
After being accepted to your program, your EA advisor will guide you through the course pre-approval process where you will determine which credits you will fulfill abroad.
