UMBC campuses are closed, but courses are now online and employees are working remotely.

Registration Clearance

Before registering for courses for the upcoming semester, students must first meet with an advisor to obtain registration authorization. Pre Chemical Engineering, Pre Computer Engineering, Pre Computer Science, Pre Mechanical Engineering, and Pre Engineering students are advised in the main COEIT Advising offices (ITE 202-206 & 201G) until they have completed the gateway requirements for their major. First semester transfer students, regardless of gateway status, are also advised in ITE 202-206 & 201G.

Pre-Majors (engineering and computer science) and First Semester Transfer Students:

Pre-majors and first semester transfer students are not assigned a specific advisor and may meet with any available advisor.

Review Faculty Advising Information


Information Systems and Business Technology Administration Majors (or students intending to change to one of these majors):

Information Systems and Business Technology Administration majors are advised by faculty in the department. If you are a declared major, then you may find your advisor’s name in MyUMBC. Select “Advising and Student Support” under the Guide section, then click on “My Advisor.” During pre-registration advising, most advisors have a signup sheet outside their offices where students can sign up for an advising appointment. If your advisor is not listed, or you have not yet declared your major as IS or BTA, please contact Mr. Richard Sponaugle.
