Credit for courses taken at UMD exchange institutions will be accepted as transfer credit.  Courses must be pre-approved by Education Abroad, the student’s academic advisor(s) and the student’s advising college(s).  Courses must be taken for a letter grade and students must receive the equivalent grade of C- or better in order to receive credit towards their UMD academic record.  The grades for transfer credit courses are not factored into their cumulative GPA and do not show up on their UMD transcript.

Where do I live?
For exchange students, DTU does not guarantee accommodation, however, they will do their utmost to find accommodation for all the students who apply within the deadline.

What's the cost?

University of Maryland students participating in an exchange program have the benefit of paying University of Maryland tuition rates and the technology fee to attend the abroad institution.  An exchange study abroad fee is also assessed by the Education Abroad Office and students are required to purchase UMD health insurance coverage through CISI.

The tuition and fees noted above are charged directly to the student’s UMD financial account, which means that students can apply UMD scholarships, state and federal financial aid, and alternative loans towards the cost of the exchange.  Please see the Funding Study Abroad webpage for more information and available scholarship opportunities.

Housing costs are paid directly to the host institution or on-site housing agency.

For more specific information on the cost of attending this UMD exchange, please see the UMD Engineering Exchange Program Cost Sheets 2013-2014.pdf.
