Commit by May 1st!!

 

Hello, Seniors!

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!

CHOOSE UMBC!

Hello Future Retrievers!

Less than 48 hours away you will be making one of the most important decisions in your life. What is that important decision you may ask? Well, I will tell you! May 1st is the deadline to accept your admission to UMBC and officially become a part of the RETRIEVER FAMILY. I know that for some of you this is a difficult decision, so I have come up with five reasons why UMBC is the place to be.

  1. OUR TOP NOTCH FACULTY

          The professors at UMBC are unlike any other and have an unusually strong                       commitment to teaching undergraduates. They have been recognized by U.S. News           and World Report as #5 for Best Undergraduate Teaching. We just so happen to                 rank before highly acclaimed universities such as, Stanford, Brown, and Yale!

  1. GREAT LOCATION

            UMBC is located on 530 acres 15 minutes from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and 30                 minutes from Washington, D.C. BWI Airport is five minutes away, as are AMTRAK             and light rail stations. WE ARE RIGHT OFF OF I-95.

  1. OPPORTUNITIES FOR RESEARCH

            UMBC’s strength and success as a research university is founded in our signature             approach to inclusivity in the scholarly process and our nimble responsiveness as             a partner with other research organizations. Independent research under the                       mentorship of UMBC’s dedicated, talented faculty members can spark a student’s             lifelong interest in interdisciplinary learning.

  1. AWESOME STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS

We have over 250 student organizations that created and run by our students.                   They offer a wide array of opportunities to get involved on campus through the                      interest and causes you are passionate about.

  1. HOUSING

We have 10 on-campus communities, all of which are fully furnished with wireless              internet, carpeted floors, monitors to control your temperature, and all rooms are                  suite-style. You will not have to share a bathroom with the entire hall here!  You                  only have to share with one with you suite mates.  Amazing Right?!

Those are just a few reasons why everyone should choose UMBC. We are excited to meet all you at orientation this summer. Remember… Do the right thing, and choose UMBC.

Where have all the Counselors gone?

Wow!  It’s like you blink an eye and suddenly it is almost the end of the Spring semester!  Over the course of the Spring term the Admissions Counselors have read a ton of applications, attended college fairs, helped host events and open houses for UMBC and completed a myriad of other tasks.  We are fast approaching the May 1 deadline for freshmen students to commit to a college or university and we are looking forward to seeing our class.  If you’re interested in UMBC please be sure to carefully read through your admissions materials and let us know if you have questions.

On another note, this weekend is UMBC’s annual Spring festival known as Quadmania!  This year Quadmania welcomes Wale and Third Eye Blind to campus in addition to UMBC and other local live music groups (Event Guide).  Wale and Third Eye Blind are both sold out but the other activities of Quadmania are open to the public so be sure to check it out (pic from SEB website).
