Official transcripts are required. Students may submit the online application without official transcripts; a PDF of the unofficial transcript must accompany the online application. If official transcripts are not submitted, students are provisionally admitted. Official transcripts must be submitted by the end of a student’s first semester. Such notification is provided in The Graduate School’s admission letter/email; no additional reminders are sent. If official transcripts are not received, students are blocked from future registration. Send official transcripts to: Enrollment Services Operation, 0130 Mitchell Building, 7999 Regents Drive, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742

International Students

Eligible international applicants must also fulfill the Graduate Admissions Process for International Applicants. International students already in the U.S., Permanent Residents, or Holders of Another Visa Status must check with the State Department prior to submitting the application to determine whether or not the visa permits participation. International students may only register for the specific program delivery method (F2F or online) into which they were admitted. TOEFL scores are only valid for two years after the test date; IELTS scores have a recommended two-year validity period.

  • Face to Face, Semester Based: International students and applicants with foreign credentials are eligible to apply for face to face, semester based programs.
  • Face to Face, Term Based: UMD cannot issue the immigration documents (F-1 or J-1 visas or I-20) necessary for international students to study in face-to-face, term based programs. Only international students who currently reside in the U.S. on existing visas that permit such studies may apply.
  • Online, Term or Semester Based: Admitted international students participate 100% as online students. Immigration documents (F-1 or J-1 visas or I-20) are NOT issued for online programs.
  • Blended, Term or Semester-Based: UMD cannot issue the immigration documents (F-1 or J-1 visas or I-20) necessary for international students to study in blended programs. Only international students who currently reside in the U.S. on existing visas that permit such studies may apply.

Accept Offer of Admissions

The Graduate School sends the official admission decision via the e-mail provided in your application. In your official letter, there is a link to either accept or reject this offer. Should you not accept (or request a deferral to a later term) then the offer of admission is rescinded by the Graduate School and the application withdrawn.
