Regardless of the program on which they will participate (exchange, affiliate or direct), all students planning to transfer academic credit back to their UMBC degree from overseas are required to submit an application to the UMBC Study Abroad Office. Students who do not follow this rule endanger their ability to transfer credits from a study abroad program to UMBC, and may not be able to transfer financial aid or scholarship funds to cover the cost of their program.
Please make certain to read your study abroad application and submit the required supplementary materials to the Study Abroad Office. Our staff carefully review your application to make certain it is complete and accurate. Once your application is complete, we will submit it on your behalf to the program sponsor.
All applications must include a non-refundable application fee of $50, payable in cash, check payable to UMBC or by credit card. Late applications will incur a late application fee of an additional $50 for up to three weeks after the application deadlines below. Beyond that date, late applications may not be accepted and, if they are, will incur an additional late fee of $100.
