How to Apply

Exchange students

Welcome to University of Maryland! If you are a prospective student, we encourage you to learn about the Smith School and our excellent offerings. If you have already been accepted, we are excited to have you be a part of our vibrant academic environment, and we look forward to your contributions and varying perspectives on business practices.

If you are a prospective exchange student, please ensure first with your exchange program coordinator that you are attending a partner school. We will help you with the Smith registration process as a team. Any questions, please email Chris Olson.
