UMBC offers merit scholarships to incoming UMBC students: Freshmen, Transfer, and International. Additional scholarship opportunities for incoming and current students may be found in Scholarship Retriever.


Spring 2022 Transfers

UMBC offers competitive merit scholarships for incoming Maryland community college transfer students, including undocumented and DACA students. Transfer scholarships are awarded based on academic accomplishment, timely and complete admissions application submission. The priority deadline for Spring 2022 transfers is October 15, 2021. Consideration for a transfer merit scholarship does not require a separate application.

Fall 2021 Student Bills

Fall 2021 student bills will be released to students via email on August 1, 2021 by Student Business Services. The E-bill will show the Fall portion of the merit scholarship as pending and will be posted to student accounts on August 23, 2021. Students should pay their balance minus the amount of their pending aid by the bill due date of August 20, 2021 to avoid late fees. More information about the E-bill can be found here.
