Visiting students are students who wish to enroll at UMBC for only one term, such as summer or winter session. For example, visiting students typically attend another college or university and want to earn specific course credits at UMBC that will transfer back to their home institution.
Before applying for summer admission to UMBC, be sure to verify that summer courses taken at UMBC will:
- Transfer back to your home institution
- Satisfy prerequisites at your home institution (if applicable)
During summer session, you can earn up to 16 credits (8 credits per session). To register for more than 8 credits per session, approval is needed.
Visiting students are not required to submit transcripts to UMBC for one term admission, but must be in good standing at their home institution.
PLEASE NOTE: While transcripts are not required for visiting student admission, an unofficial transcript will need to be submitted if the course you wish to take has pre- or co-requisite requirements.
