U Of Maryland Accepting Correspondence Courses ?
Q: Does anyone know if the University of Maryland accepts distance education
courses from other schools. I want to finish my degree and I have taken
classes through correspondence from BYU and LSU. Does anyone know about
this. If they do I should only have to take the last 30 credits from them.
If not does anyone know of other schools who do? My major is in the
Liberal arts area. I need a degree in order to move up in my carrer.
A:Ah, but of course they do. They have long been in the nontraditional education game. I earned 3 units in sociology from their Asian Studies division while bouncing up and down in the Sea of Japan. Bear in mind, though, that *how* they were earned is much less important than in which area they were earned in. But where the credits from University of Maryland or from another school. I'm just trying to transfer in some upper level electives from BYU that I took through correspondence. I know the University of Massachuetts at Lowell doesn't accept distance education classes an I was hoping U. Maryland would. How very odd that UML wouldn't accept distance education classes as a matter of policy. That is incredibly unusual. I am positive that the University of Maryland does (as does every other university that I know of, except apparently UML). UML actually said that they accept no DE classes for transfer? Learn something new every day. Now, not accepting the credits because you don't offer a comparable course, or some other such reason is something entirely different. Univ. of Maryland does have Distance Education Courses. BYU and LSU are regional accreditated in the US and I dont see any reason NOT accepting your credits taken. Were you already enrolled at UofM when you took these classes? If so, you may need to get special authorization. Otherwise, they should be fine.
