Welcome to UMUC Asia
Welcome to University of Maryland University College and the Asia campus. Our mission—to offer quality academic programs
to students whose responsibilities may include work, family, and military service — is always at the heart of our decisions.
UMUC is proud to serve our students, and your success is our priority.

Since our founding in 1947, UMUC has been dedicated to the education of military servicemembers, veterans, and their fami-
lies. As the first American university to educate U.S. military overseas, serving the military is embedded in the university’s DNA,
and we proudly carry on this heritage as one of the top military–trusted and veteran–friendly schools in the country. We are
honored to serve the members of military communities throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

Having served in the military, we have seen the challenges servicemembers and their families face and the sacrifices they make.
We have also recognized their ambition to improve themselves and their lives. At UMUC, we answer this need by offering career–
relevant academics to help you become more valuable in your current role and in the job market. Our programs and courses are
designed to give you the best possible academic training, preparation, and credentials for a successful career in your field. You
can achieve your dreams and your true potential — one class, one semester, one accomplished moment at a time.

On behalf of the faculty and staff of this great institution, we extend to you our very best wishes as you build your professional
value and achieve your educational goals.

                              I am pleased to welcome you to The

                               the news, on July 1, 2019, our name
                               was officially changed to University
                               of Maryland Global Campus by an
                               act of the Maryland State General
Assembly. You’ll be seeing and hearing our new name more and
more—on our website, in course materials, publications, and
correspondence; in the media; and at our locations around the
world—and eventually, it will no longer seem different to you.
