UMBC is a member of the University System of Maryland and is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. The Carnegie Foundation ranks UMBC in the category of Research Universities with high research activity.

In a new ranking of “Most Innovative Schools,” UMBC is #4 in the nation, joining MIT and Stanford in the top five. The rankings reflect results of a poll of presidents, provosts, and admissions officers at other national research universities.
