myUMBC is a web-based portal to various services and online community resources at UMBC. Use myUMBC to register for courses, view account balances, pay bills online, register for a parking permit, check university email and check grades. Create your account with your date of birth and UMBC Campus ID. Check your UMBC email account on a regular basis (faculty often provide information prior to the start of classes). You can forward your UMBC email to another email account such as Hotmail or Gmail.


Syllabus Archives

Syllabi in the archives are from previous summer and winter sessions, and should only be used for planning purposes.  Course instructors will distribute their syllabi at the beginning of class or post them on Blackboard before the session begins.

Access winter session syllabi archive.
Access summer session syllabi archive.


Order your textbooks online from the UMBC Bookstore. Be sure to allow sufficient time to receive your textbooks before the start of classes.  Contact the UMBC Bookstore for order assistance or questions.


Faculty often post “unofficial” final grades to Blackboard at the end of the session. Grades are not final and official until posted to myUMBC by the Registrar’s Office. For additional information, including Incomplete Grades and Grading Policy, refer to the Undergraduate or Graduate catalog.

How to view final grades.


You can order official transcripts (electronic or paper) through the Registrar’s Office for a minimum fee.  Transcripts are sent directly to you or another recipient (such as another institution) with your authorization.

Unofficial transcripts are immediately available through myUMBC. You can view and print your unofficial transcript at no cost through myUMBC.  Once logged in, select “Advising and Student Support” under the Topics menu and then click the Transcript (Unofficial) link.
