If you are having problems in one or more of your classes, now is the time to take action.
The UMBC community is well aware of the difficulties many freshmen have. We are ready to help
you be successful this semester and throughout your academic career. This Action Resource Center
will guide you through the steps you can take to achieve success. Read the list below, click on any
links that apply to you, and take the required actions.
Please take notice: Students may not register for a course more than two times. Students are considered
registered for a course if they are enrolled after the end of the schedule adjustment period. Students
may petition the Office of Undergraduate Education (OUE) for a
third and final attempt of a course taken at UMBC or another institution. An attempt is defined as
enrollment in a course, or its equivalent at another institution, in which the student has received a grade or an official
withdraw was given. This includes credit by exam or if a student withdraws from the entire semester/session. Students should
consult with their academic departments for additional restrictions or policies regarding repeated courses.
If you can't find help through these resources, visit the Learning Resources Center, Sherman Hall, 3rd floor,
Room 345, and ask to speak to someone from the First Year Intervention Program. We wish you success in
achieving your academic goals.
