Academic Suspension or Dismissal
International student-athletes (ISA) are responsible for checking in with the Office of International Education Services upon coming to UMBC. The ISA needs to be aware that US regulations require the completion of tax returns if they are receiving a full grant-in-aid.
There is a flagging system in place for international students in addition to the normal athlete flag preventing the student from dropping below 12 credits. If an ISA wishes to drop below 12 credits in a regular length semester, they must be cleared through both the Athletic Department and International Education Services.
