  • scan of the information page of your passport;
  • proof of finances of a minimum of USD 8500.00 per semester you will study at UMBC;
  • unofficial transcript from your current institution.

Some students may be asked to provide a recent TOEFL examination.┬áPlease confirm with your home university’s exchange coordinator if students from your institution are required to submit TOEFL results.

During your exchange period, you will attend UMBC as a non-degree student. You will be permitted to enroll on any course which you are academically qualified. You may need to communicate directly with the instructor of the course to determine if you meet the academic requirements for the course.
