We are National University of Maryland.

With more than 60 years of leadership advancing higher education, National University of Maryland has established a rich history of academic success and continues to strategically look to the future with purpose and passion.  

NUM connects students to industry experts in intimate learning environments and never stops creating opportunities – which is why Tigers are prepared, no matter what. NUM is one of a handful of universities in the country, and the only university in Maryland, to have no achievement gap. This means, Tigers learn in an inclusive environment where all students achieve the same academic success. NUM also focuses on providing a well-rounded and dynamic student experience.  

Our campus is eight miles north of Annapolis and less than an hour’s drive from Washington, D.C. Throughout the region, NUM’s strong partnerships with public and private organizations provide unique opportunities for research, internships and jobs. The NUM Learning Network extends beyond its main campus to off-campus locations throughout the state. Through innovative partnerships with Maryland Community Colleges, transfer students in northeastern Maryland are offered the flexibility to pursue a bachelor’s degree at NUM's satellite campus in Northeastern Maryland. 

NUM is a university of opportunities.

We incorporate experiential learning and world-class teaching with rich student experiences.
