After being admitted to Towson, you will be required to attend Towson's Transfer Program, offered on select dates in January and July.
Towson’s Transfer Program will not only prepare you for your first semester at Towson, but answer any questions concerning your entire academic career. During the program, you will:
Courses taken at other universities may, if approved, transfer to TU and count toward TU degree requirements. However, students are limited to a maximum of 64 credits from two-year institutions and 90 units from either four-year institutions or from a combination of two- and four-year institutions. At least 30 of the 120 credits for your degree must be taken at TU and 15 of these 30 credits must be completed after you formally become a degree candidate at TU.
Requests for exceptions to this policy may be made to the Academic Standards Committee. Contact the Office of the Registrar, 410-704-4351, for more information. All course work taken prior to your transfer to Towson that you want considered for credit toward your degree must be evaluated prior to your first semester at Towson. This course work cannot be transferred after the fact.
If you’re a graduate of a Maryland public community college and in good academic standing with at least 56 transferable credits, you will receive admission priority.
Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree holders from a Maryland Community College are guaranteed admission (as space permits) if they meet the following criteria:
"Guaranteed admission" applies to admission to the university only and does not guarantee admission to competitive majors. If you plan to pursue a competitive major, you must contact that department for specific screening procedures and GPA requirements for entrance into the major.
Students who have earned less than 56 transferable credits or are transferring from an institution other than a Maryland community college will be admitted based upon their combined cumulative GPA, amount of transferable credits and space availability.
Credits from 2-year institutions may not be used to fulfill the upper-level requirement of 32 units. Lower-level courses from four-year institutions that have upper-level TU equivalents can transfer as lower-level credit. However, this equivalent coursework can count toward requirements for your major. Faculty from your major will determine on a case-by-case basis if coursework counts toward major requirements.
