UMGC (formerly UMUC) Europe Delivers MORE
As you explore University of Maryland Global Campus Europe's (UMGC Europe) offerings, one thing becomes clear: everything UMGC does is geared toward helping soldier-students, like you, earn a high-quality degree or certificate in a timely and convenient fashion. You'll get a multitude of convenient services -- online and in-person -- including academic advising, financial aid services, registration help, and comprehensive library resources.

UMGC Europe has been the leading educational partner with the U.S. Department of Defense for over 70 years, making the university particularly sensitive to the needs of military students and well-prepared to handle details specific to military life. Its graduate programs partner, Salisbury University, has offered bachelor's and master's degrees in social work to soldiers in Europe since 2013. You can get individual service from local UMGC Europe program coordinators and choose from hundreds of courses at more than 50 military installations throughout Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

University of Maryland Global Campus is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

On-site Classes: Daytime, evening, and weekend classes are offered at many locations throughout Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

Online Classes: Hundreds of courses are offered online through the Online Education program, so you can attend class at your convenience from anywhere in the world.

50/50 Hybrids: The best of both worlds. Online convenience and on-site support. Classes meet half of the time face to face and half of the time online in a virtual classroom.

MORE Programs
UMGC Europe offers an unparalleled breadth of programs so that, whatever your field of interest, you'll find a major that equips you with the knowledge and skills that the workplace demands. While stationed in Europe, you can earn certificates and degrees in dozens of dynamic fields such as business, cybersecurity, information technology, or social sciences. Each major has specialized content that's tailored to employer trends and opportunities.

Through UMGC's partner institution, Salisbury University (SAL), students can obtain degrees in the field of social work. UMGC also offers certificates and master's degrees in business administration, cybersecurity, information technology, and management (criminal justice or homeland security) in Europe.

MORE Faculty Expertise
What really sets UMGC apart from other universities is its faculty. The vast majority of UMGC's faculty members hold senior positions and advanced degrees in their fields of expertise, so they are uniquely qualified to keep you apprised of emerging trends.

MORE Student Support Services
At UMGC, we're there when you need us. Whether you need 24/7 library services or financial aid advice, experts are easily available to answer your questions.

Financial Aid: UMGC Europe offers a wide variety of financial aid opportunities -- many specific to military members and their families -- in the form of scholarships, grants, low-interest loans, and veterans educational benefits, in addition to accepting military tuition assistance.

Admission Requirements: Our admission procedures are designed to meet the needs of nontraditional students. Most applicants who have a high school diploma or the equivalent can be admitted and register for an undergraduate class simultaneously. In most cases, neither transcripts nor test scores are required the first time a person enrolls with UMGC Europe. Students registering through the GoArmyEd portal are given priority processing for official evaluations once UMGC receives all required documents.
