Course load & excess credits (how many credits can be taken and how to apply for excess credit)
Petition the Office of Undergraduate Education (OUE) to repeat a course for a third and final attempt of a course taken at UMBC or another institution (students may not register for a course more than two times).

Schedule adjustment period: time-frame when you can use your myUMBC account to add, drop, or swap courses.
Waitlists: 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 23 is the last day students will automatically be enrolled in classes from Summer Session I waitlists
- July 3 is the last day students will automatically be enrolled in classes from Summer Session II waitlists
Schedule conflict form needs to be completed by the student. Then both teachers of the conflicting classes will need to sign the form giving the student approval. Finally, the student will need to bring the form to the Registrar's Office for processing prior to the end of the schedule adjustment period.
