UMUC is one of eleven divisions of the University of Maryland and provides quality educational opportunities for primarily non-traditional adult students.

The University of Maryland established the College of Special and Continuation Studies (CSCS) in 1947, and in 1959 it became the University of Maryland College. The UMUC became an independent university in 1970, and in 1988 it became part of the University System of Maryland.
