Transfer Ready

Are you ready?

Complete these important steps before arriving on campus.

Fall Admits: Sign-up and attend Orientation. You'll leave campus with important information, connections to peers, your UCard, and your class schedule. As a transfer student, you have two options for an Orientation session: Transfer Orientation that's available just for transfer students, with a specific focus on how your previous experience transfers to UMD; and one that's available to all incoming students. All sessions are scheduled throughout the summer months.

Complete your FAFSA and have the information sent to UMD (Federal School Code: 002388).

We understand that incoming students and their families will have questions regarding their financial aid. A helpful resource page is available to assist you. If you can't find what you're looking for there, our staff at One Stop Student Services would be delighted to assist you. Email us at or call 218-726-8000.

Check out our Housing & Residence Life Office page for more information about on-campus housing, or click here for off-campus housing listings.

Apply for housing online or contact the Housing & Residence Life Office for more information about living on-campus.

Submit all final official college transcripts to UMD. Be sure to send us your final transcript from your current institution once final grades have been posted. Transcripts can be emailed to or mailed to:

Schedule a 30-minute meeting (phone or in-person) with our Transfer Service Coordinator to review your transfer record before registration. You'll discuss:

  • Academic progress report
  • Transcripts on file with UMD
  • Courses that are transferable to UMD
  • Introduction to the MyU portal

Sign up for your Transfer Prep appointment before your Orientation date.
