Whether you are getting ready to enroll in a community college, nearing completion of an associate degree, or ready to make a change from another university, the Transfer Student Center (TSC) is here to answer your questions and help you plan to transfer to TU. We offer services to students at all stages of their undergraduate careers.

Prospective Student Resources

We are available to all students interested in transferring to answer questions about how your credits will transfer, the best pathway to your bachelor’s degree, and steps to take to transfer. Here's how we can help:

  • Pre-Transfer Advising — We offer assistance for students who want to plan their transfer courses, explore degree possibilities, and learn more about transferring.  
  • Transfer Credit Our philosophy is that no student should be surprised when they see their official transfer credit evaluation. You can read about our transfer credit policies and evaluation process here. 
  • Community College Partnerships  We partner with Maryland community colleges to create 2+2 degree completion plans to provide you with a seamless pathway to your bachelor’s degree.
  • Transfer Recruitment Events Maryland community college students can meet with one of our counselors each fall and spring at their school’s transfer fair. We may also be available for individual appointments on your campus.
