At Academic Engagement & Transition Programs, we provide academic and programmatic opportunities that serve all new students in their first year at UMBC. These programs include: Academic Transition Courses (First-Year Seminars, Introduction to an Honors University Seminars, and Transfer Seminars), the Living-Learning Communities, the Summer and Winter Bridge Programs, as well as American Sign Language Courses.
Sign language promotes communication with the Deaf community and can help babies communicate sooner and better. It can boost more effective brain function and links the mind and body in ways that other languages do not.
This award was created to support and recognize instructional faculty and staff for their work with students during their year of transition to UMBC.
The Community Read is a program that allows everyone to come together to examine key issues in our global and local communities.
Academic integrity is an important value at UMBC. By enrolling in this course, each student assumes the responsibilities of an active participant in UMBC’s scholarly community in which everyone’s academic work and behavior are held to the highest standards of honesty.
Please note: UMBC is committed to creating an accessible and inclusive environment for all students, staff, and visitors. If you have difficulties accessing any of the materials on our site, please contact us so that we can provide an alternative format and remedy any accessibility challenges.
