Application Process for Undergraduate Students

The deadlines for visiting students to apply for summer admission are:

Session I: May 24
Session II: July 5

After these deadline dates, the summer application is no longer available.

How to apply

Online applications are managed by our trusted partner CollegeNET and are safe and secure.

Create your CollegeNET account and keep a record of your CollegeNET user name and password. Once you create your CollegeNET account, choose the Visiting Student option to log in to CollegeNET and complete the visiting student application.

If you save and end your session before you submit your application, you will need your CollegeNET user name and password to reopen the online application.

Please note:  If you pay your application fee by check, there will be a verification period of six business days between the time you submit your electronic check payment and the time UMBC receives your form.

Application confirmation

When you successfully complete and submit your application, you’ll get an immediate confirmation email from CollegeNET, which will then forward your application to UMBC within 24 hours.

When UMBC receives your application from CollegeNET, you will get an email from UMBC’s Office of Summer and Winter Programs confirming that your application has been received.

Please note:  If you pay your application fee by check, there will be a verification period of six business days between the time you submit your electronic check payment and the time UMBC receives your form.

Summer admission

It typically takes 3 - 5 business days for UMBC to process visiting student applications and reach an admission decision. Admission decisions are initially sent to applicants by email. UMBC will also send a follow up admissions decision letter to an applicant’s current mailing address. The admissions email and letter will include a UMBC campus ID number, which you will use to create a myUMBC account and register for classes.
