Alumni can also schedule appointments to meet with a Career Specialist. In response to the current economic climate, we are temporarily waiving the $30 fee for alumni appointments. This is for all first appointments. Alumni can now easily schedule appointments directly via UMBCworks or by calling 410-455-2216. We recommend selecting a 60-minute appointment slot. Any follow-up appointment will incur the $30 fee per appointment. If you need support with your UMBCworks account, e-mail
