Welcome to the UMBC Admissions Counselors’ blog! Located on a 500 acres suburban campus about 10 minutes from downtown Baltimore, UMBC is a mid-sized public research university with a strong liberal arts tradition. This blog is designed to provide our prospective students (freshmen and transfer) with information and insight relevant to UMBC. We also hope that this is an opportunity for you to get to know the Admissions Counselors a little bit better! We’ll try to keep you updated with regular posts so check back soon, and feel free to post comments or questions for the counselors. Thanks and take care!

    • Hi Caleb- The Admissions Office is still working with Fall 2009 students but I would expect our Spring 2010 application to be available online toward late August. Thanks!

      • I’ve been looking to apply for spring of 2010 as well. I noticed that the deadline was July 1st for this. Is that true?

  1. Hi Elizabeth- The deadlines for the Spring 2010 semester are November 1 (priority deadline) and December 15 (final deadline). As I mentioned above the application for the Spring 2010 semester will be available early-fall. Thanks!

  2. Hi, I’m trying to find out the details on the application and the admissions processes. I would like to know what I need to do to apply for the Fall of 2011. I also would like to know the school requirements for the application and admission.

    • Hi Emily,
      Our application will be available online on Monday at the UMBC website. We have 2 deadlines, our priority deadline and our regular deadline. If you give us your application, $50 application fee, official transcript, and official SAT/ACT scores by November 1st (our priority deadline), we will get you an answer by Christmas. This is non-binding, so you don’t have to give us an answer until May. This also guarantees you scholarship consideration. We will accept applications until February 1st (the regular deadline), but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to consider your application for scholarships.
      Like I said, to apply you will need your application, $50 application fee, official high school transcript, and official SAT or ACT scores. You are more than welcome to send us letters of recommendation, but we ask that you send us no more than 2 letters. Our average SAT score is a 600 on each section and about a 3.5-3.6 weighted GPA.
