Admitted Students

Welcome to the UMBC and the College of Natural and Mathematical Sciences (CNMS)!

We look forward to working with you during the virtual advising and registration portion of New Student Orientation. During this session you will meet one-on-one with an advisor to register for your first semester courses. In order to make the most of this appointment, be sure to come to your appointment prepared. We suggest reviewing the “Before Orientation” section of our website days in advance of your orientation advising session as some items are time sensitive. Once you have completed orientation, be sure to also review the “After Orientation” section and keep an eye out for future communications from CNMS Advising.

Please bring any questions or concerns you may have to virtual advising session and/or email the CNMS Advising Team at We are here to support you as you transition to UMBC and beyond!
