Winter Session 2013

WINTER SESSION COURSE LOAD



During winter session you can register for no more than 4.5 credits, due to the condensed length of the term.  If you attempt to enroll in more than 4.5 credits, you will be blocked during online registration. 

Highly motivated and academically strong students may be granted permission to enroll in more than 4.5 credits. However, advanced approval is required by both the student's primary major advisor and the Office of Academic and Pre-Professional Advising to enroll in excess credits. 

When requesting excess credit approval, please allow at least a week before the start of classes to process your request.  The Office of Academic and Pre-Professional Advising will notify you by e-mail regarding whether your request to enroll in excess credits is approved.

To request permission to enroll in excess credits during winter session:

  • Download and complete an "Enroll for Excess Credit" form.

  • Consult with your primary major advisor to verify he/she agrees to approve the additional credits. Obtain your advisor's signature on the form.

  • E-mail the completed and signed form to the Office of Academic and Pre-Professional Advising for review at arc@umbc.edu. 

Questions about the excess credits process should be directed to:

Office for Academic and Pre-Professional Advising
