UMBC offers both need and merit-based aid. Be sure that you have a FAFSA application on file as soon as possible to meet all university, federal, and state financial aid deadlines. You can consult Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to confirm deadlines and to obtain additional information about other forms of financial aid that are available.
The Office of Undergraduate Student Services in the College of Engineering and Information Technology oversees the application process for a number of college specific scholarships. Information about these scholarships and the Common Application can be found here.
