To get credit, please submit your Joint Services Transcript (JST).
Does UBalt Have an ROTC program?
As a UBalt student, you can join ROTC as part of our partnership with The Johns Hopkins University. You'll get 100 percent of your college tuition paid for in return for the participation in the program, and upon graduation you'll be commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Army.

What is the amount of the stipend for the Chapter 33 (post-9/11) GI Bill®?
This amount depends on your status as a full-time or part-time student as well as your percentage of eligibility. At the full amount, with 100 percent eligibility, it is equal to the Basic Allowance for Housing for an E-5 (regardless of your prior rank/grade) with dependents at the ZIP code of the University of Baltimore (21201).
How many credits do I need to take to be considered a full-time student?
