What is a regional program?
A regional program, sometimes referred to as a satellite campus, regional campus or regional higher education center, is a campus where students can earn the same Salisbury University degree with the convenience of remaining close to home. Salisbury University and other universities offer various undergraduate and graduate degree programs to areas that otherwise would not have these program offerings.
Where are Salisbury University’s regional programs?
Our regional programs are located throughout the state of Maryland at The Universities at Shady Grove in Rockville, University System of Maryland at Hagerstown in Hagerstown, Eastern Shore Higher Education Center at Chesapeake College in Wye Mills, Cecil College in North East, and University System of Maryland at Southern Maryland in California.
Where is the Salisbury campus located?
Salisbury University’s beautiful 200-acre campus is located on the south end of the City of Salisbury in Wicomico County on Maryland’s scenic Eastern Shore.
Can regional students participate in student activities and organizations?
Yes, regional students can participate in student activities and organizations. Participating in student activities and organizations can help students build connections and lifelong relationships with other students, staff and faculty members.
Who can apply?
Students who have completed an associate’s degree (or close to 60 credits) can apply for entry into undergraduate programs. Students who have completed a bachelor’s degree can apply for entry into one of our graduate programs. The specific course pre-requisites will differ by major.
Can I apply for financial aid?
Absolutely, please refer to the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships for more information. If you have more questions, they are always happy to help and can be reached at 410-543-6060.
What classes do you offer?
For undergraduate programs, we offer upper division (300/400) level courses with the expectation that any lower division (100/200) level courses would be complete prior to your transfer from a community college to Salisbury University. Classes are offered in face-to-face, hybrid and/or online formats and the time of day of your courses depends on your major. Please reach out to Regional Transfer & Advising Specialist, Patrick Burke firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Who issues my diploma?
Your diploma comes from Salisbury University. Remember, it is the same degree as the Salisbury campus, just offered at one of our regional locations!
