Gather Additional Documentation to Bring With You to O&CS Day
This may include:
- Official score reports from AP, IB, or CLEP testing.
- Official/Unofficial transcripts from all previous institutions.
- Syllabi from all engineering, computer science, math or science courses taken at out of state community colleges and any other four year colleges. If your syllabi are in a language other than English, please have them translated. If you have checked your Transfer Credit Report and the courses have been evaluated as UMBC courses you do not need to bring the syllabi.
- Official High School transcripts documenting your foreign language experience, if not already submitted. This is particularly helpful for transfer students who completed through Level 4 in a foreign language in High School, but were not asked to submit a High School transcript as part of their UMBC application, and for first-time freshmen who had Level 4 in progress when they applied to UMBC. Students whose native language is something other than English may qualify for a Language Proficiency Waiver – see this website from the Department of Modern Languages, Linguistics, and Intercultural Communication for details on that process.
Transfer students: If you are bringing in engineering, math, or science coursework from an out-of-state community college or any four-year university (including international institutions), it may be to your advantage to submit your coursework for evaluation for direct equivalency before you come to O&CS Day – in particular, those courses that you need to meet major requirements. To have your coursework evaluated by the proper UMBC Department, complete an “Evaluation of Transfer Credit/Course Description Review” cover sheet for each course syllabus, and submit this documentation to UMBC’s Registrar’s Office.
Please be sure to bring the Password for your MyUMBC Account with you to the O&CS Day. You will need the password to register for classes.
