Transfer2Terp Learning Community

To ease your transition to the University of Maryland, you can join the Transfer2Terp (T2T) Learning Community. 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. 

If you are interested in enrolling in this course, talk to your advisor about it during Orientation. Then, email to request course permission. Course space is limited. 

If you have questions about the T2T Learning Community, please feel free to contact us at

  • Recognize their talents and strengths  through analysis, dialogue and experiential learning
  • Demonstrate an ability to apply models and theories to explain the transfer student experience while collaboratively working with others
  • Utilize the various Adele H. Stamp Student Union Center for Campus Life and University resources to improve their professional network 


  • Registration is accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Students must request course registration permission by emailing New, incoming transfer students may register for the course either during Orientation or after Orientation.
