University of Maryland Maryland Transfer Advantage Program CSM

A partnership of the University of Maryland College Park with the College of Southern Maryland.

The Maryland Transfer Advantage Program (MTAP) is designed to ensure that CSM students are well prepared for seamless transfer to the 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.

MTAP is a program for students at CSM interested in completing a college education at the University of Maryland College Park.

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 (see limitations) with a 25% course-tuition scholarship (normal fees apply). Students must complete an A.A. or A.S. Degree or General Studies Transfer Certificate at CSM to complete MTAP (see complete requirements). Once the program is completed, students apply as transfer students to UMCP. MTAP students who have successfully completed the program are guaranteed admission to the University of Maryland College Park.
