The University of Maryland School of Law on the Baltimore campus (UMB) will accept up to 9 credits of M.C.P. coursework towards the J.D. degree, and the Urban Studies and Planning Program will accept up to 9 credits of J.D. coursework towards the M.C.P. degree. This means that students who complete both programs can save up to 18 credits.
Applicants must apply to each program separately and be accepted by both programs. Only grades of B or better may be transferred. Credits from the M.C.P. program can be transferred to the Law program only if they are taken while the student is enrolled in the Law program and vice versa. This means that students cannot take advantage of the transfer of credits if they have already completed either of the programs.
