Procedure: Complete form and attach a course description from the previous school’s course catalog. You must include a copy of the syllabus for each course. Forms should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org for review.

Verification of Transferability
Purpose: To verify the transferability of non-UMBC courses to be taken by a UMBC student (prior to enrolling at another institution).
Procedure: Students planning to take courses at a Maryland community college should first consult ARTSYS to determine the course’s transferability.
Students planning to take courses at other institutions should first consult TES to determine the course’s transferability.
Complete the verification of transferability and include all necessary information. If the course is needed for major or minor requirements, the student must seek advisor’s permission and obtain advisor’s signature on the form. Return the completed and signed form to the Registrar’s Office for review. Once the verification of transferability has been reviewed, the student will receive an e-mail indicating it is ready to be picked up from the front desk.
The form must be submitted at least 3 weeks before the course begins.
Processing Time: 1-2 weeks.
