Your Success: Take Action


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 students face. We are ready to help you be successful this semester and throughout your academic career. Our Action Resource Center will guide you through the steps you can take to achieve success. Click on the link below to access our Action Resource Center.




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 the Action Resource Center, please contact Tim Cox, Assistant Director of Advising and Student Success. He may be reached at 301-738-6281 or

We wish you success in achieving your academic goals.
