The Maryland Transfer Advantage Program (MTAP) is designed to ensure that CSM students are well prepared for seamless transfer to University of Maryland College Park (UMCP) and that they are well prepared for success when they get there. MTAP helps students that want to begin and complete their college education in the State of Maryland.
Students apply for MTAP as a new student entering CSM or as a student currently enrolled at CSM. Upon acceptance, students take classes at CSM in preparation for transfer to UMCP. Also, MTAP students may take classes at UMCP with a 25% course-tuition scholarship. Students must complete an A.A. or A.S. Degree or General Studies Transfer Certificate at CSM to complete MTAP. Once the program is completed, students apply as transfer students to UMCP. MTAP students who have successfully completed the program are guaranteed admissions to the University of Maryland College Park.
