About Us



The Waldorf Center for Higher Education was founded in 1997 to offer associate and bachelor degrees through the CSM/UMUC Alliance, a partnership between the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) and the University of Maryland University College (UMUC).

Today, the Waldorf Center continues to innovate by offering students the convenience of affordable, local learning with the quality and diverse program and degree offerings of UMUC, Towson University, and Notre Dame of Maryland University. Students can choose the degree program from our universities that will best match their personal, career and academic goals.

The Waldorf Center for Higher Education provides daytime, part- and full-time, evening and weekend programs to meet the scheduling needs of our students. In addition, certificate, online and accelerated courses are available for those students needing an additional challenge or seeking to fast track their degree and careers.

Because of our small student to staff/professor ratio, we can take the time to get to know you and your academic and career goals. You’ll meet people from across the region, building friendships and connections that will last a lifetime.

In addition, the Waldorf Center for Higher Education is linked to local and regional businesses, government agencies and healthcare and educational organizations so we can constantly improve our programs and prepare our students to meet our students' and communities' changing workforce and educational needs.

Located in Charles County, Maryland, the three-floor facility includes administrative space, 12 classrooms and three instructional computer labs, a student lounge, and student/alumni computer lab. The center also provides advising and student services for CSM and UMUC students in one convenient location.
