The Pre-Transfer Advising program provides support to prospective transfer students from two-year and four-year schools before they apply to the University of Maryland to complete an undergraduate degree. Students are encouraged to use pre-transfer advising services to assess their readiness to transfer and estimate their time to degree completion.
Advisors from Maryland community colleges work closely with Pre-Transfer Advisors for issues related to transfer credits and major options. Pre-Transfer Advisors help prospective transfer students determine how previous coursework will apply to University of Maryland degrees, identify remaining general education and major requirements, and locate specific resources for additional assistance. The pre-advising worksheet must be completed to receive transfer course feedback.
