Admitted Transfers (TU in Northeastern Maryland)

Congratulations on your admission to Towson University. 

TU in Northeastern Maryland

If you're still considering your transfer options, we’re happy to help you decide if TU in Northeastern Maryland is right for you. We encourage you to visit us soon. Get in touch with an admissions counselor or the department for your planned major and ask tough questions. When you’re ready to accept your offer of admission, just complete the following steps.


Submit your Enrollment Contract and nonrefundable $300 fee. 

To officially accept our offer of admission, please follow the instructions in your admission packet that was mailed to you. Submit your Enrollment Contract and nonrefundable $300 enrollment fee to University Admissions by the date listed on your offer of admission letter. This is a one-time fee to secure your spot in the incoming class and is not credited to your bill.  If you have any questions, please contact University Admissions at 410-704-2113.


Activate your Towson University email account

Towson will communicate with you using your TU student computing and email account, also referred to as your NetID. To get started, simply activate your NetID online. To complete the activation process, you will need your seven-digit TU student ID number, which is found on your Offer of Admission letter. If you have difficulty activating your account, please contact the Student Computing Services Desk at or call 410-704-5151.


Determine if your major is screened

If you know what you want to study, it’s important that you determine if it is a screened or competitive program, as admission to TU does not guarantee admission to some majors. Screened or competitive majors have additional requirements, such as auditions, prerequisite courses or minimum GPAs. Knowing these requirements in advance will prepare you during the enrollment and registration process. Contact the major department or consult the Undergraduate Catalog for more information on screened or competitive majors. 


Submit your final official college transcript

Please make arrangements for your college or university to send your official transcript to University Admissions. The official transcript must be sent directly from your current college by mail to:

University Admissions, Towson University,
