Transfer Students

Transfer Student Workshops and Social Events are the perfect way to meet other transfer students, learn about campus resources, and get free food! Please note that some of our workshops will be virtual this year. We post all of our workshops on myUMBC, so head over to OCSS’s myUMBC page for a list of topics and links to join!

Transfer Communities:  Transfer Communities, or interest-based groups for transfer students Participants will be able to learn more about a topic with other students who have similar interests. Below you can read more about the six different communities by clicking on each form. If you are interested in joining one of these communities (you can only choose ONE), please fill out the form that corresponds with the chosen community. Please note that each community can hold up to ten students. Once ten students sign up for a community, the form will close automatically. This opportunity is only open to students on UMBC’s Catonsville Main Campus. 

Please note that the following are communities from previous years, ones for the upcoming year will be announced soon.

  • Self-Care

  • Anime
  • Pre-Medicine
