Student success is a priority at UMBC. While the University takes every effort to ensure that students make consistent academic progress and complete a degree(s) in a timely fashion, it is recognized that individual circumstances may change and in some cases student’s work on a degree may be interrupted.
Should an undergraduate student find himself or herself in a position in which an interruption is necessary (i.e., class absence, course/term withdrawal, or break in enrollment) they should promptly review the information provided below and consult with an academic advisor. Such interruptions should only be considered by a student in exceptional circumstances to avoid delays in degree completion. Students should consider such interruptions carefully, as they may have academic and/or financial implications.
