About USG

Executive Director Dr EdelsteinYou have a world of options open to you, whether you are seeking to transfer to complete your bachelor’s degree, or you have decided to go on to graduate school.

The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) lets you explore those options and receive your degree without ever leaving the neighborhood. As a regional center for the University System of Maryland, established in partnership with Montgomery County, USG is one of only two places in the state where universities located from the Eastern Shore to Baltimore come to you. We bring together nine of Maryland’s leading public universities, offering 80 top-quality, high-demand upper level undergraduate and graduate degree programs--full- and part-time, days, evenings, and weekends.

In fact, we’ve taken special steps, working closely with area community colleges, to make sure that transferring to USG to complete your bachelor’s degree is an easy and seamless process.

We’re proud of the accomplishments of over 4,000 students who have graduated since USG was established in 2000 and of the more than 4,000 students who currently attend degree and certificate programs at USG. Explore our website to learn about our excellent programs and faculty, small classes, customized student services, friendly environment, and record of success. Find out how students enrolled in degree programs at USG are eligible for a full range of financial aid options, too.
