Established in 2000, The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) is a unique partnership of nine University System of Maryland universities on one convenient campus in Montgomery County. Each university provides its most in-demand academic programs and awards its own degrees. USG, in turn, provides centralized on-site student, academic and administrative services, in the areas of admissions, financial aid, technology, student support and campus life.
This integrated approach allows USG to offer accessible pathways to more than 80 upper-level undergraduate, graduate and professional degree and certificate programs. With programs available on a flexible full-time, part-time, daytime, evening and weekend basis, students are able to complete their education in a cost-effective and timely manner while staying close to home.
USG’s innovative and pioneering partnership approach to higher education is designed to connect college students to outstanding career opportunities, while providing regional employers with a highly educated, skilled workforce.
