Application for Admission

High School Records/Transcripts
Official high school transcripts with senior year (or equivalent) courses must be submitted.
The receiving college or university decides what credits transfer and whether those credits meet its degree requirements. International applicants are required to submit all official college and/or university transcripts. In addition, submitting course descriptions at the time of application can assist in the review and awarding of transfer credit. Admission to UMD will not be granted without official transcripts from prior colleges and universities.
