Verify you have created a myUMBC account
You must create and activate your myUMBC account before you can register for classes. Visit the myUMBC Web Admin page and select Create My Account. You will need your UMBC ID.
Verify you have accepted your admission
Indicate whether you will be accepting the offer of admission by logging in to your myUMBC account and clicking “Accept or Decline Admission.”
FYI: There may be a 24-48 hour delay between accepting your admission and when you are able to register for classes.
Your program may require an enrollment deposit before you can register for classes.
Some programs required students to make a non-refundable $250 deposit to finalize your acceptance before you can register for classes. This is not an additional fee; the deposit will be counted as pre-payment towards your student bill.
If your program requires this deposit, you will receive instructions within your myUMBC account on how to pay once you have accepted your admission in order to finalize your enrollment. To view payment deadlines visit the Graduate School Deposit website.
