Visiting students

UMBC welcomes students from other colleges/universities who want to earn transferable credits during the winter. You must be in good academic standing at your home institution and/or any previous colleges/universities you’ve attended.

Students from other University of Maryland System campuses must also apply for visiting student admission in summer or winter sessions (inter-institutional registration is not available in those terms).

Before applying to UMBC, we encourage you to check with your home institution to verify that credits taken at UMBC will transfer back to your home institution. In addition to the course descriptions found in the schedule of classes, you can also review the syllabus archive from previous winter sessions for more detailed course information.

Apply September 26 – December 21
You must first apply and be admitted to UMBC before you can enroll in winter session.  Admission is valid only for the current winter term. You must reapply to enroll in future terms.

Be sure to review the important winter session dates and deadlines.
