The Spring 2018 advising and registration season is on its way! We have several online tools available to help you get a head start in planning your future semesters.
The Degree Audit, What-if Degree Audit and Academic Pathways tools can be accessed directly through your myUMBC account under the topic “Advising and Student Support.”
The Degree Audit: Your Built-in Progress Tracker
With the degree audit, you can track your progress toward degree completion including key graduation requirements: 120 credits, 2 PHED courses, general education requirements, and requirements for majors, minors, and certificates. The degree audit shows which requirements are satisfied, and those that remain to be completed.
Want to "Switch it up" a Bit? Use the What-If Degree Audit
If you are considering a different major or adding a minor or a certificate program, you can review your program using the What-If degree audit scenarios. This tool allows you to see which courses fulfill degree requirements and which ones are needed without actually changing your major.
Academic Pathways: How to Get it Done in Four Years
We have developed sample four-year academic pathways for those students who need more strategic academic planning. You are encouraged to work with your academic advisor to use the four-year academic pathway as a guide in developing a degree plan based on your academic preparation, interests and goals. You can use the specific major template or download a blank template – whichever one will best help you map out your plan!
Another Point of View: Your "New" myUMBC Profile
Your myUMBC profile showcases a variety of tools including the degree “donut” that provides a virtual snapshot of your requirements.
There are two ways that you can view your new profile through myUMBC:
Log into your myUMBC account. Click “Advising and Student Support”. A link to your profile will be at the top.
Log into your myUMBC account. Click the arrow to the right of your name. Select “Profile”.
We strongly encourage you to use all of these tools to actively explore academic possibilities and better understand your graduation path at UMBC. These tools can help you and your academic advisor plan a course of study that reflects your unique skills, interests, and abilities and allows you to graduate on schedule—whatever your schedule may be. Happy Planning!
