We are excited to welcome you to the Maryland family. At New Student Orientation, you will meet with an academic advisor, connect with other new students and an Orientation Advisor, and register for classes. Our program is designed to prepare you for the academic rigor at UMD, introduce you to Terp traditions, and to acquaint you with our campus resources.
We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
