The University of Maryland is the state's premier center for research, advancing knowledge and providing high quality undergraduate education. A publicly supported, land-grant institution, Maryland is dedicated to educating the most promising students in the state, the nation and the world.
The University of Maryland was recently ranked 5th, its highest ranking ever, in Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine's "100 Best Values in Public Colleges". Kiplinger's reviewed more than 500 public four-year colleges and universities to decide which offered the best combination of outstanding academics and an affordable price tag.
Each year, we receive more than 26,000 applications for a fall freshman class of about 4,000 and approximately 6,500 transfer applications for 2,200 transfer spaces. Our application review process is rigorous, comprehensive and individualized. Each applicant receives a complete file review. This assessment is based on achievements and potential in a broad range of academic and extracurricular categories, viewed in the context of the opportunities and challenges the applicant faced.
