Fall of 2020 UMD Transfer Students

Hi guys, I'm starting this thread because no one made this yet. I'm hoping to get into UMD for the fall of 2020. I want to apply for the early action deadline. Let's get this thread going if you guys are applying too!

    Hi, thanks for starting this thread!
    I wonder to which address should we send email to if we have questions about anything related to the transfer processes?
    I have sent one to [email protected] and another to [email protected], but only got a automatic reply with the latter one which does not contain any useful info.
    Is there any other person I can possibly refer to?

    I sent my questions to the pretransfer advising email for UMD. I also called the admissions office to ask about some questions.

    by the way, does anyone know if we need to specify anywhere (e.g. in transfer essay) if I have completed the math and English requirement? Because my school used tricky name for the English course and I don't know if UMD will recognized it as the English requirement...though the content is actually quite similar

    @curiositybun you should definitely go to the UMD website where it shows if your credits transfer! It will tell you if your class at your university will transfer as ENGL101 or any math class. I don’t think you have to put it in your essay because your essay should be about things that aren’t already on your application

    Hi, could someone chance me please?
    3.353 college GPA CS major at UMBC
    48 credits (31 from hs. 17 from college)
    Since I have over 30 credits, would my hs information still be needed?

    @sio781 According to the UMD website, "Students who have completed fewer than 30 semester or 45 quarter hours at the time of application are expected to submit high school records and SAT and/or ACT scores for review." So it looks like you don't need to provide high school information.

    Instead of looking to other people's opinions on your chances of getting in, you may get more meaningful information by looking at past threads to see what kinds of scores and grades others had who were admitted as transfer students. I have heard that it is easier to get in as a transfer student than as a first-time freshman applicant if that helps at all.

    Good luck to you!

    @sio781 It turns out that you need to submit your high school transcript if you earned less than 30 credits while in college. Anything you earned in high school does not count towards the 30 credits. So based upon what you have written, you probably do need to submit your high school transcript since you have only earned 17 credits while you were in college. You should call the office of admissions to confirm.

    Hi everyone! I have about 56 credit hours completed with 7 in progress, but I have not taken a basic math course in college equivalent to Math 110. I have taken a statistics class but I don’t know if that would count. Does anyone know if I will still have a chance of being accepted and/or who to contact at UMD regarding this issue? Thanks!
