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 version of all winter courses by subject
  • Search the winter 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.

Winter Session Course Load (how to register for more than 4.5 credits)

During winter session you can register for up to 4.5 credits. To register for more than 4.5 credits, approval is needed.

Repeat Courses

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.



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.

  • Note: January 1, 2014 is the last day students will automatically be enrolled in classes from the waitlists

Schedule Adjustment Period (January 2 - 7)

The time frame when you can use your myUMBC account to SWAP, ADD, or DROP a course.

Withdrawing from Winter Session 2014

After January 17 (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 (January 7).
