Credit When It’s Due: Reverse Transfer of Credit

Powered by a state-provided grant, UMBC is proud to participate in Credit When It’s Due, a national program to facilitate the transfer of credits from four-year universities back to two-year colleges. What does that mean? Students who transferred to UMBC from a two-year institution in Maryland but without completing their Associate’s Degree can have their transcripts sent back to their previous institution on a semesterly basis free of charge. The two-year college can then check if any UMBC coursework satisfied the requirements of that degree, which can then be awarded without the student interrupting their studies at UMBC in any way!
