How to Search the Schedule of Classes
For online class searches and registration, UMBC uses PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, an interactive database of all approved subjects and courses available at UMBC.
Although PeopleSoft makes it easy to search all UMBC courses by subject, not all subjects are offered each semester.
- Download a pdf list of all summer courses by subject.
- Search the summer session schedule of classes online.

Student Registration and Academic Information
View step-by-step instructional videos and/or reference guides on how to register, add, drop or swap courses.
Summer Session Course Load
During summer session you can register for up to 16 credits (8 credits per session). To register for additional credits, approval is needed.
Students may not register for a course more than two times. Students may petition the Office of Undergraduate Education (OUE) for a third and final attempt of a course taken at UMBC or another institution.
All required documents must be submitted to OUE no later than May 14 for Summer Session I courses, or June 24 for Summer Session II courses.
Most instructors will permit students to place themselves on a waitlist once a course reaches capacity and closes.
The waitlist process identifies if open seats exist for a class and (if so) automatically enrolls students on the waitlist into the class according to the student's position on the waitlist.
Please note that students will NOT be automatically enrolled from the waitlist if the student has a time conflict with another course, or if the student is trying to enroll for excess credits (without approval).
When adding a class during registration, check the box "Waitlist if class is full" and continue the enrollment process. If the class has a waitlist, you will be notified of your position on the waitlist after you have completed registration.
- May 24 is the last day students will automatically be enrolled in classes from Summer Session I waitlists
- July 5 is the last day students will automatically be enrolled in classes from Summer Session II waitlists
Schedule Adjustment Period
The time frame when you can use your myUMBC account to SWAP, ADD, or DROP a course.
Withdrawing from Summer Session 2013
After the last day to drop a course from a session, the only way to drop a course is to withdraw from the session (i.e., drop all courses in the session). Submit an (RT) Help Ticket to the Registrar’s Office requesting a “semester withdraw.” A notation of “Session Withdrawal” will appear on your transcript.
Independent Study Courses
Academic departments schedule independent study summer courses on an “as needed” basis. To request the course be added to the summer schedule, contact the appropriate academic department before the final day to register for each session.
