Smith Incoming Exchange Students

Study at the Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland to get a world-class education on a beautiful campus just outside Washington, DC. Exchange students must be nominated by their home university to begin the application process.

Exchange students have access to most undergraduate business courses and many non-business courses throughout the university. We encourage flexibility when selecting courses because we cannot guarantee access to any particular course. More information regarding registration procedures will be to students available upon nomination.
