Overview

To provide you with additional options to study abroad, Education Abroad (EA) approves other programs outside of Maryland programs, Exchanges, and Affiliate Programs. On these programs, all credits you earn will appear as transfer credits on your UMD transcript. Programs on our approved list are reviewed to ensure that they are academically accredited and have proper student services and program support in place. If you wish to participate in programs that is not on our list of Other Approved Programs, please contact the EA advisor for the appropriate region.

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. ​Access the program application online by clicking on the "Apply Now" button at the top of the program page on our website. You will login with your UMD directory ID and password and submit most application elements online.
  2. Apply directly to the program provider: After receiving UMD approval, your 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.
