Transfer Credit Information

Transfer Credit Information

See also: The Department’s course transfer FAQ for common issues related to transfer of chemistry and biochemistry courses.

If you have taken chemistry courses at another four-year institution or community college, those courses may transfer to the University of Maryland, College Park as equivalent to specific courses offered here, or as non-specific science credit.

Your first stop should be the University’s on-line Transfer Credit Center website. Using the Transfer Course Lookup tool, you can find out if the course(s) you took have already been evaluated for course credit here, and what courses you will get credit for.

The Transfer Credit Center has detailed information concerning the process of receiving transfer credit but the first step is to get your past work evaluated by the appropriate department (chemistry courses are evaluated by this department, art courses are evaluated by the art department, and so on).

If the courses you have previously taken have been evaluated and found to be equivalent to courses here, you need to follow through with the transfer credit process. Once transfer credit has been awarded, it’s important to check your transcript to ensure that you have been given the credits you deserve.

If the courses you have previously taken have NOT been evaluated, you need to bring a description of the chemistry and/or biochemistry courses you took and any materials you have that can be used to evaluate the courses (syllabi, websites. lab manuals, etc.) to CHM 1206. All supporting material must be in English.

Following evaluation, you will be notified as to how your previous coursework transferred to Maryland, and how to proceed with the transfer credit process.
