Student Enrollment

Summer 2021  headcount enrollment is 2,484, an increase of 6 percent from summer 2020 enrollment of 2,344. Increased enrollments occur in undergraduate Nursing, the Graduate School master’s program in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics, and Carey Law master’s programs in Cybersecurity Law and Homeland Security and Crisis Management Law.  Enrollments decreased in the Carey Law Day Juris Doctor program.  A decrease in reported Social Work PhD enrollment was due to the timing of registration activity for summer 2021, and does not reflect a material change in enrollment for that program.

Spring 2021 headcount enrollment is 7,087, an increase of 5.5 percent from spring 2020 enrollment of 6,717. This is the first time headcount enrollment for UMB has surpassed seven thousand students for a spring term. Increases in undergraduate and professional practice nursing, professional master’s programs in pharmacy, especially Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics, Graduate School research doctorate programs, and the day law program are slightly offset by lower enrollments in the professional practice pharmacy program and evening law program.

Winter 2021 headcount enrollment was 33, which was 75 percent less than the winter 2020 term enrollment of 134. Enrollment consisted of coursework for students in the professional PharmD program.

Fall 2020 enrollment at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is 7,137, an increase of 4.5 percent from fall 2019 enrollment of 6,827. Official enrollment exceeds projections recently provided to the University System of Maryland Board of Regents by 78 students, or 1.1 percent.  This is the first time headcount enrollment for UMB has surpassed 7,000 students. Increases in undergraduate and professional practice nursing, professional master’s programs in pharmacy, especially Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics, Graduate School research doctorate programs, and the day law program are slightly offset by lower enrollments in the professional practice pharmacy program.

Fall 2020 continues the transition of the master’s-level nursing program from the Master of Science (MS) to the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree. The fall 2020 enrollment file also includes 34 intercampus (visiting) students, Level Code IC, not included in enrollment data reported for the University of Maryland, Baltimore.

Summer 2020  headcount enrollment is 2,344, an increase of 17 percent from summer 2019 enrollment of 2,009. There are four students enrolled in the new dual-degree Clinical Dental Hygiene Leader program through the Universities at Shady Grove and 139 students enrolled in the Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics master’s program, which commenced through Shady Grove in fall 2019. Among ongoing programs, increased enrollments occur in online Graduate School master’s programs in Health Science, Palliative Care, Pharmacometrics, and Regulatory Science, the Day Law JD program, and the doctoral Nursing Practice program.
