About Us

The Pre-Transfer Advising program provides support to prospective students from two-year and four-year schools. Pre-Transfer Advisors help students determine how previous coursework will apply to University of Maryland degrees, identify remaining general education and major requirements, and estimate time to degree. Students are encouraged to use pre-transfer advising services to assess their readiness to transfer and estimate their time to degree completion.

*Important Information
