Textbooks are available at the UMBC Bookstore or can be ordered online in May. Be sure to allow sufficient time to receive your textbooks before the start of classes.  Also note the last day textbooks in the same condition as purchased can be returned for a full refund with a sales receipt.  Contact the UMBC Bookstore for order assistance or questions.


Faculty often post unofficial final grades to Blackboard at the end of the session. Grades are not final and official until posted to myUMBC by the Registrar’s Office. For additional information, including Incomplete Grades and Grading Policy, refer to the Undergraduate or Graduate catalog.


You can order official transcripts (electronic or paper) through the Registrar’s Office for a minimum fee.  Transcripts are sent directly to you or another recipient (such as another institution) with your authorization.

Unofficial transcripts are immediately available through myUMBC. You can view and print your unofficial transcript at no cost through myUMBC.  Once logged in, select “Advising and Student Support” under the Topics menu and then click the Transcript (Unofficial) link.
