Admitted Fall FreshmenCongratulations on your admission to the University of Maryland! Your academic achievement, extracurricular involvement, and diverse experiences make you a great fit for the university. We know you have a lot to consider, but the information below will help you take the steps you need to join the Maryland family.
1. Review your letter of admission on the application portal. It includes important information about your semester of admission, major, and residency status. Log in to the application portal using the PIN and password used when you submitted your application, and click on "Your application decision is now available online" to review your letter of admission.
3. Explore a Living and Learning Program. These programs (offered by invitation only) link the classroom with the residential experience through students’ shared interests. Explore what programs are available and get information how to indicate your interest in joining one of these communities.
4. Respond to your offer of admission. If you choose to confirm your enrollment (and we hope you do!), please refer to your admission decision letter on the application portal. Within your letter is a link that allows you to confirm your enrollment. It may take up to 48 business hours for your confirmation to be processed and posted to your record. If you decide not to attend Maryland, we ask that you decline your offer of admission through the application portal.
5. Submit your $400 enrollment deposit. This nonrefundable enrollment deposit will reserve your place in the incoming class and be applied to your tuition. The preferred payment method is by credit card, but the application portal will provide instructions for other payment options if needed.
6. Visit the enrolled students page for your next steps. After confirming your enrollment, you’ll need to submit your housing and dining agreement, register for orientation, and take care of a few more things to get you ready for campus.
