Applications are considered complete when the online application and all required documents have been submitted. All materials must be postmarked by the appropriate deadline for consideration.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to confirm receipt of all application materials. Visit our Submitting Application Documents page to learn how you can submit the items below for a completed application.
If you have non-U.S. academic records for post-secondary work, please review our international applicant requirements as they might apply to you.
1. Completed online application
This application is for students with approximately 60 college credits who are interested in transferring to the University of Maryland at Shady Grove to complete their junior- and senior-level course work and earn a bachelor’s degree. All additional application materials must be postmarked by the appropriate deadline.
2. Nonrefundable application fee of $75
When completing your University of Maryland Coalition application, you will be required to pay the fee on our secure website with a credit card at the time of application unless you have received a fee waiver. Fee waivers must be submitted prior to application completion for consideration. We cannot accept cash or check payments.
3. Official copy of your college transcripts and list of courses in progress
Your institution should submit an official copy of your college transcripts listing all courses you have completed. A final official transcript must be sent upon completion of any courses in progress. All official transcripts are required by the application deadline for review. The University of Maryland accepts transfer credits taken only from regionally accredited institutions. Maryland’s Transfer Credit Services will determine the acceptance of credit after the university extends an offer of admission.
4. Official standardized test scores
Scores should be sent directly to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at the address below by the test administrator. We use the highest subscores from the SAT and ACT in our review of your application. We will accept scores from the redesigned SAT, first administered in March 2016, with or without essay scores. View College Board’s Concordance Tools to see how scores from the redesigned SAT compare to those on the old SAT.
If you would like to receive credit toward your degree for successfully completing Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), A/AS level examinations, or certain other standard exams, those official scores must also be submitted once the student has been admitted.
