Course Proposals Accepted Now for Winter Session 2011 (9/10)

After conferring with your department chair, submit all Winter Session 2011 course proposals directly to your department’s designated scheduling coordinator now through September 10.

Since UMBC has implemented PeopleSoft Student Administration, academic departments now coordinate and update their schedule of classes at the department level each academic term.

The Special Sessions Policy Committee will continue to review and approve summer and winter schedules before publication and the Office of Summer, Winter and Special Programs will continue to manage faculty contracts and program administration.

Past Winter Enrollment Data

To help in planning the upcoming winter session, course information and enrollment data for winter sessions 2009 and 2010 is available at
