Additionally, the office facilitates the onboarding of new students through new student orientation programs.
Financial Aid and Scholarships
UMBC offers a range of financial aid and payment options so that all students may benefit from a UMBC education. The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships is responsible for the administration, awarding and general oversight of student financial assistance programs including the promotion and delivery of financial literacy education.
Academic and Pre-professional Advising
The Office for Academic and Pre-Professional Advising (OAPA) provides advising services to exploratory (undeclared) and pre-professional allied health students (such as nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, etc.). Additionally, OAPA supports students who are facing academic difficulties through specialized and structured advising support.
The Registrar’s Office facilitates the enrollment of students through course registration and is responsible for the overall management of student records including grades, degrees and transcripts. Additionally, the Registrar’s Office supports the academic colleges and departments through course scheduling and catalog management, to name a few.
