Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Apply Early Action.
  • Do well on the SATs.
  • Write a strong essay. Some students suggest talking about service and diversity.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Applications for scholar programs and the Honors College program are separate.
  • Everyone goes home on the weekends.
  • Science classes at UMBC are hard.
  • Some dorms are not too nice, but there is more of a social life. In the nicer dorms, there is sometimes very little interaction between residents.
  • UMBC gives undergraduate students a lot of opportunity for research.
  • You need to make your own experience. The best way of doing this is to get involved with student government or campus organizations.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Information sessions for prospective freshmen are available weekdays at 11 a.m. For transfer students, information sessions are at 11 a.m. most Fridays and Saturdays. Register online at www.umbc.edu/undergraduate/experience/tour.html or by calling (800) UMBC-4U2 on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. An information session needs to be scheduled at least a week ahead of time. Interviews are usually only conducted if the student is a candidate for a merit scholarships and/or scholar programs. UMBC also offers special programs, such as Just for Juniors Visit Day, Prospective Parents Chat, and Prospective Freshman and Transfer Chats, which take place from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesdays.
Campus Tours
Campus tours are offered with the same frequency as information sessions. To schedule a campus tour, visit www.umbc.edu/undergraduate/experience/tour.html or call (800) UMBC-4U2 weekday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Overnight Visits
Every year, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and Orientation hosts the Campus Overnight and New Student Day for admitted students and their families. The events begin on Friday afternoon and continue through Saturday afternoon. Admitted students have the opportunity to stay with a student leader on campus who will take them around campus and teach them about UMBC. Parents of students who live far from campus can get discounted rates at many hotels around the area. At the New Student Day, students and parents get to learn about the different campus organizations on campus, take tours, conduct business with enrollment management, meet residential life staff, get a campus card, attend athletic events, visit exhibits throughout the morning and afternoon, and meet academic deans, staff, and faculty.
