Admissions

The MS in SCM program only admits students during the fall semester.

The following are required to be considered for admission into the program:

  • The equivalent of a US bachelor's degree.

The online application allows you to upload a scanned official transcript(s) for each college or university attended. If the official transcript where you received your degree does not state the degree was conferred, please also upload an official diploma or official copy of your degree received (most schools already list the conferred degree on the transcript). If you are formally admitted to the University of Maryland, you will be required to submit an official transcript at new student orientation. If your transcript is not in English, please also an official transcript translated into English.

  • One letter of recommendation from a supervisor within your organization or from a professor familiar with your work.
