Decisions are Coming

Hi, Everyone!

Our February 1st deadline has passed and our office is buckled down reading all the completed applications! Reminder our FAFSA application deadline is tomorrow! Be sure to submit the application to be considered for need-based aid.

Submitted an application? Not heard from us? Be sure your application is complete! You can keep up to date with your application status by logging into your myUMBC account. Your account will show if there are any documents needed to complete the review.

Application complete? Anxious on when you will hear? I have good news! We have begun sending out admission decisions for fall 2017. We will be sending out our regular decisions in batches throughout the spring.  Do not worry if you have not heard from us. We will be sending out our next batch of admission decision letters within two weeks. All official admission decisions are sent in the mail. Decisions are being sent to freshman and transfer students.

Deadlines Are Approaching!

Hello Everyone,

For those of you who live near by, I hope you’ve been keeping warm over the last few days! I had the pleasure of spending my holidays in nice warm weather but was greeted with below freezing temperatures when I got back. Check out the beautiful sunset  I witnessed just days before returning to the cold!

As we get back into the normal routine, I’d like to remind you all of two very important deadlines that are soon approaching!

February 1st: Regular Decision Deadline!

February 14th: FAFSA Deadline! Apply online by Valentine!

For those of you who haven’t submitted your application, you have until February 1st to submit the Common App and all supporting materials! AND if you haven’t already done so, please be sure to submit your FAFSA application by Valentines Day for need-based aid consideration.

You can keep up to date with your application status by logging in to your myUMBC account. Once you apply, be sure to create your account! If you have questions on how to do so, don’t hesitate to reach out.

 

As always, follow our social media accounts to receive the most up to date information about UMBC and don’t forget to use our hashtag, #UMBCAdmit!

I know you all worked very hard to submit applications and supporting documents by November 1st. Our admissions counseling staff has also been working diligently to read every completed application that was submitted. This year we had over 5,000 Early Action applications and we are so excited to finally send out decisions! We appreciate how patient you have been, I understand how nerve-wracking this time can be.

 

There are two possible decisions you can receive in the mail and I will expand on exactly what they mean:

  1. Early Action

YES! Congratulations! It is a wonderful experience to receive admission to a college or university, and even more exciting if this is your first decision letter.

 

Your admissions packet contains plenty of information about UMBC, Orientation, Student Life, and Living on Campus.  Once spring rolls around, we will be hosting various events, both on and off campus, for newly admitted students. Be on the look-out for those dates in the near future!

You will have until May 1st to submit your enrollment deposit so you have some time to decide on the best fit institution for you. Please contact our office if you have any questions in the meantime.

  1.  Deferred

For Early Action review, in addition to offers of admission, we send notifications that an application has been deferred to Regular Decision for further consideration. This does not mean you have not been admitted! If you receive a deferral letter, don’t be discouraged, our Early Action review is more competitive than Regular Decision. We will begin sending Regular Decision letters in late February. As always, feel free to contact our office if you have any questions!

 

Once again, thank you for all of your applications! We truly enjoyed reading them and getting to learn a little more about our future Retrievers!

We encourage you to share your excitement with family, friends, and on social media using our hashtag #UMBCadmit!
