Want to become a Terp? Each year, hundreds of students successfully transfer from AACC to University of Maryland College Park.

Transfer credits to UMD

AACC works closely with UMD to offer graduates a seamless transfer process. Here are a few of the advantages of starting at AACC.

  • Save close to $13,350 on tuition with two years at AACC followed by two years at UMD. (See cost comparison)
  • UMD has a dedicated pre-transfer advisor on the Arnold campus to speak with students and help them plan their transfer path!
  • Current students can apply to the Maryland Transfer Advantage Program (MTAP) for additional savings on UMD tuition.
  • Up to 70 AACC credits can be transferred and used for your bachelor's degree, including fulfilling most general education requirements or prerequisites.

Because admission to the University of Maryland, College Park may be competitive, UMD's Office of Undergraduate Admission will retain the final authority in all admission decision.
