0110 Adele H. Stamp Student Union
University of Maryland
College Park, MD 20742



You are new to Maryland, not to college! 

Transitioning into UMD will be a wonderful experience.  You can ease your transition and make it more meaningful by joining the Transfer2Terp (T2T) Learning Community. T2T is the only student union based learning community exclusively for students transferring into Maryland. 

The T2T Learning Community offers first-semester transfer students the opportunity to take HESI310,  a 3-credit upper-level course designed to translate your previous success into a strong start at Maryland. T2T students work alongside faculty and staff to achieve a seamless transition into the campus life and culture. 

 Space is extremely limited. 

If you have questions about the T2T Learning Community, please feel free to contact us at 301-314-0159 or at

  • Utilize the various Adele H. Stamp Student Union Center for Campus Life and University resources to improve their professional network and their ability to articulate their mission and vision
  • Demonstrate an ability to apply models and theories to explain the transfer student experience while effective and collaboratively working with others
