Incoming students

Welcome to UMBC! Students admitted for the spring semester are eligible to attend winter session.

Winter session is a great time for incoming freshmen and transfer students to grit going at UMBC. Lighten your spring class load, take required courses, and get acclimated to the campus. Smaller classes and dedicated faculty will give you a jump start on the busy spring semester and help keep you on track to graduate on time or early!

No additional application is required to enroll in winter session.

How to register for winter session
Plan your schedule

UMBC offers several online tools to help you plan your schedule.

Academic Pathways is a degree-planning guide that allows you to search by major for a complete list of the courses you’ll need to graduate from UMBC in four years. Many general education (GEP) and required courses are offered in winter session to help you stay on track and graduate on time.

Schedule Planner is a web based planning tool to assist you in selecting the best schedule from multiple options. Use this tool to choose desired courses, and setup blocked times for events such as work, study time, and lunch. Once you select your schedule, you can import directly to myUMBC. Launch Schedule Planner from your myUMBC page.
