Hello, New Retrievers!

We are so excited to welcome you to Retriever Nation! Our New Student Orientation program is designed to introduce you to our inclusive excellence community, introduce you to our UMBC traditions, acquaint you with campus resources, and connect with other new Retrievers.

New students will register and attend a one day in-person Orientation experience with a virtual advising appointment to follow. Each new Retriever has the ability to bring up to two guests for their in-person program. During your virtual advising appointment you will be matched with an Orientation advisor to register for your courses.

Fall 2024 Orientation Registration is open! Orientation dates are offered in June, July, & August. Currently, registration is open for the June orientation dates. Orientation sessions for July and August will become available in mid June.

Please contact orientation@umbc.edu with any questions.
