Spring break is complete and you are now in the home stretch of senior year!
But, before you start dreaming of prom, graduation, and summer fun, you have one key step left in your college admissions process. You need to pick your school. We know there are a ton of fantastic universities around MD and the country but we are hopeful you will find your home here at UMBC!
May 1st is the national deposit deadline for you to declare your intent to attend UMBC or any other university nationally. To accept your admission offer to UMBC, you will need to accept it via your myUMBC account and submit your enrollment deposit to secure your place in the class of 2021.
We are extremely impressed with all the applications we received. We are excited for the students who have already committed to being a retriever and look forward to many more students joining them!
Still, have a few questions about UMBC or want to visit before May 1st? Come on in or give us a call, we are happy to help!
We look forward to meeting everyone at Summer Orientation!
Good Morning Future Retrievers!
We are less than two weeks away from one of our favorite events of the year; New Student Day! The invites are out and you can register through your myUMBC account. Be sure to use the registration code sent in your invitation.
New Student Day is the perfect opportunity to visit campus, fall in love with the retriever lifestyle and accept your admission! We will start the morning with our campus activities fair! The fair will have a portion of our 250 clubs present. Students will get to explore our wide variety of clubs, meet members and sign up to join. Throughout the day students will be attending sessions focused on student life, campus living, and academics. You will also have the opportunity to tour research facilities, tutoring spaces and a residential facility. Lastly, throughout the whole day, you will be able to interact with current students and professors in all departments.
I want to congratulate all of the admitted students! We can’t wait to see all of you Future Retrievers on Saturday, April 8th!
I’m so excited to begin Recruitment Travel once again this year! I had a great time last year getting to meet to many of you and visiting your beautiful schools and home towns.
Here’s I picture I took last year when I was in VA Beach!
This year I will have the pleasure of visiting many of the same places. Some of which include: Raleigh, Durham, Northern Virginia, Richmond, and Virginia Beach! I will also be stopping by several schools in Anne Arundel County, Southern Maryland, and the Eastern Shore.
My first day of travel will be this Monday, September 12th and my first stop is North Carolina. If you’ve seen a poster announcing our visit, please be sure stop by!
Be sure to stay updated with us by following our social media accounts @UMBCAdmissions.
Can’t wait to meet you all!
