The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) is a regional higher education center created under the auspices of the University System of Maryland.  Since its inception in 2000, USG has been transformed from a location for part-time evening instruction into a vibrant center offering classes during daytime, evenings, and weekends in both full-time and part-time formats.  USG currently serves more than 4,000 graduate and undergraduate students, with more than 1,400 undergraduates enrolled in daytime programs.  Nine University System of Maryland (USM) degree-granting institutions collaborate to offer their top degree programs, as well as certificate and continuing education programs, at one convenient location in Montgomery County.   

With coursework beginning at the junior level, USG provides all the prestige and benefits of a Maryland education during a student's final two years of undergraduate study.  Most credit earned at Maryland community colleges will transfer, and students can choose from a variety of majors, with classes offered at times that meet their schedules.  At the Universities at Shady Grove campus, students work closely with professors from nationally ranked academic programs.  USG provides students with access to the finest programs of Maryland's top public universities in an atmosphere that features small classes, customized student services and state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and learning.  Students can also take advantage of a growing number of social events, community service activities and student leadership opportunities.

The University of Maryland, College Park is one of the powerful partners that make up USG.  Students can earn a University of Maryland, College Park degree at USG and celebrate Terrapin traditions no matter which campus they call home.  The University of Maryland, College Park offers eight undergraduate degrees within five different academic departments at Shady Grove.
