Prior to being admitted to the Biocomputational Engineering degree program, transfer students must complete the prerequisite math/science courses, lower-level General Education requirements (or an associate's degree), and a total of 60 credits. Students are welcome to apply as transfer students from community college or four-year institutions. For more information regarding course equivalencies, please visit the UMD Transfer Course Database.

We will begin accepting transfer applications for Fall 2023 admission in January 2023. Book a meeting with Emily Bailey, Program Coordinator, to walk through your pathway to the biocomp degree, or check out the  Application Checklist to begin your application today!


Beginning for Fall 2023 admission, prospective first-year (freshman) undergraduate students can apply directly to the biocomputational engineering pre-major to complete their first two years of undergraduate study at College Park before transferring into the Biocomputational Engineering degree program at Shady Grove for their junior and senior years. 

Please contact Emily Bailey or schedule a virtual meeting if you are a 2022-2023 high school senior with interest in applying directly to the Biocomputational Engineering pre-major for Fall 2023.
