IES Academy

The Fall 2019 IES International Rules and Policy Meeting (IRPM) will take place on August 27, 2019.  

The IES Academy is a series of events meant to welcome new students to UMBC, share important information, have fun, and help you meet staff at UMBC that will help you with concerns related to your immigration status and well-being.  The IRPM is the last in this series of events.

A MyUMBC Group called the IES Academy is available for admitted students, and organizes all events, both optional and required.  You should be invited to join the group through your UMBC email once you are admitted, but you can also navigate to the group here.

In the Fall semester, the Academy consists of:

  • The International Rules and Policy Meeting (IRPM), where we share important immigration information and other campus resources – August 27
  • The International Paperwork Party, where we review and copy your immigration documents – August 26


Important Reminders

Please note all new F-1 students to UMBC are expected to attend the event on August 27.  This includes transfer students new to UMBC, and ELI students becoming degree-seeking students at UMBC.

The International Rules and Policy Meeting is separate from the Undergraduate and Graduate Orientations – please plan to attend all that apply to you!
