< Transfer Experiences

Transitioning to a new campus has its challenges. However, we value the unique experiences and perspectives you bring with you as a transfer student. To help you get acclimated, we have compiled a directory of resources and programs to enrich your undergraduate career at UMBC. Successful transfer students highly recommend new students to actively engage with all the university has to offer. You can participate in our vibrant campus community through your academics, joining a student organization, participating in a peer mentoring program, and so much more!
