Career Services Center

The Career Services Center collects information on what UMBC students do with their degrees via the annual Graduating Student Report. Graduating students are asked to complete the short survey via email or at cap and gown pick-up. Information collected allows the campus to compile relevant and recent data about employment offers, graduate/professional school acceptances, and salary averages to share with faculty, employers and perhaps most importantly, current and future UMBC students.

Check out for a comprehensive view of programs, events and opportunities to find employment or to assist with the graduate school application process. For more information, email or call 410-455-2216.
