Call our office to register for one of these programs
When registering, you should know any conflicts you have that will prohibit you and your student from fully attending your program - full participation is mandatory for all new students. When your student registers online or calls our office, they will be shown/informed of all available dates. These dates are based on space availability for college advising. Programs fill quickly, so be sure to register online or call as soon as possible for the greatest availability. Your student can register you at the time of their registration, or you can be added at any time by calling our office.

The program fee is $66.00 per parent/family member for your program. This fee covers all costs associated with the program including breakfast, lunch, staffing, materials and logistics. The charge is a per-person fee for all participants. New Student Orientation programs at the University of Maryland include a program fee because the Orientation Office receives no funding from the university or the state. The fees associated with our program are charged directly to your student account. Please do not send payment to the Orientation Office.
