IMPORTANT: Students may not register for a course more than two times. Students are considered registered for a course if they are enrolled after the end of the schedule adjustment period. Students may petition the Office of Undergraduate Education (OUE) for a third and final attempt of a course taken at UMBC or another institution. An attempt is defined as enrollment in a course, or its equivalent at another institution, in which the student has received a grade or an official withdraw was given. This includes credit by exam or if a student withdraws from the entire semester/session. Students should consult with their academic departments for additional restrictions or policies regarding repeated courses.
