Converting the myUMBC portal account that you created to track your application status into a full myUMBC account will give you access to additional features and functions, including: UMBC email, Billing & Personal Finances, and Classes & Grades. Please note that the Course Registration functions will be disabled until you attend an Orientation & Course Selection Day.
Upgrading your account will also allow you to officially join Groups in myUMBC, like the CNMS Advising Group. Groups allow you to get news and updates from departments and student organizations in which you have an interest, and also gives the sponsoring organization a place to share links, documents, and media with their members.
