Admitted Fall Transfer Checklist


Congratulations on your admission to the University of Maryland! Your academic achievement, extracurricular involvement and diverse experiences make you a great fit for the university.

As you review your next steps and confirm your enrollment, you can view answers to commonly asked questions about your admissions decision here. We know you have a lot to consider, but the information below will help you take the steps you need to join the Maryland family.

1. Keep up the good work!

It is our expectation that you maintain your current level of academic performance. In addition, the University requires you to update the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, should you have disciplinary or criminal actional taken against you between the time you submitted your application and the start of classes. If this is the case, please email applymaryland@umd.edu with the subject line "Disciplinary Update". Any significant changes in either of the above could result in the reassessment of your admission decision.

2. Review your letter of admission on the application portal

It includes important information about your semester of admission, major, and residency status. Log in to the application portal with the PIN and password used when you submitted your application, and click on "Your application decision is now available online" to review your letter of admission.

3. Plan a campus visit

Now that you’ve been admitted, join us for an Admitted Student Open House, take a campus tour, or attend a campus event to learn about life as a Terp.

4. Respond to your offer of admission

Whether you decide to attend Maryland or not, we ask that you respond to your offer through the link provided in your letter of admission in the application portal. It may take up to 48 business hours for your confirmation to be processed and posted to your record.

5. Submit your $400 enrollment deposit

This nonrefundable enrollment deposit will reserve your place in the incoming class and be applied to your tuition. The preferred payment method is by credit card, but the application portal will provide instructions for other payment options if needed.

6. Submit additional documents (International students only)

Visit the International Students & Scholar Services (ISSS) website to complete the “New Student To Do List.” International students must submit the following materials to the ISSS office to receive an I-20:

  • Certification of Finances and bank statements that demonstrate support of U.S. $50,000 per year
  • Passport
  • Visa
  • Proof of insurance
  • Copy of I-94 arrival/departure record, visa stamp, and current I-20/DS2019 form

7. Learn which of your credits will transfer

If you’ve earned credits through courses at another institution or through standard exams (such as AP, IB, A/AS Level, and CLEP exams), they may count toward your Maryland degree. Submit your most recent transcripts to the address below as soon as your grades are posted so we may evaluate your transfer credit. To review which of your credits will transfer, create your directory ID and use it to login to review your unofficial transcript, which will be available roughly 15 business days after you are admitted.

8. Learn about financing your education

From merit scholarships and need-based aid to understanding your payment options, learn how you can finance your education.

9. Visit the enrolled students page for your next steps

After confirming your enrollment, you’ll need to submit your housing and dining agreement, register for orientation, and take care of a few more things to get you ready to join us on campus.
