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 with 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
Whether you decide to attend Maryland or not, we ask that you respond to your offer through the link provided in your letter of admission in the application portal. It may take up to 48 business hours for your confirmation to be processed and posted to your record.
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. Submit additional documents (International students only)
Visit the International Students & Scholar Services (ISSS) website to complete the “New Student To Do List.” International students must submit the following materials to the ISSS office to receive an I-20:
- Certification of Finances and bank statement that demonstrate support of U.S. $50,000 per year
- Proof of insurance
- Copy of I-94 arrival/departure record, visa stamp, and current I-20/DS2019 form
7. See if you have transferable credits
If you’ve earned credits through courses at another institution or through standard exams (such as AP, IB, A/AS Level, and CLEP exams), they may count toward your Maryland degree. Submit your most recent transcripts to the address below as soon as your grades are posted so we may promptly evaluate your transfer credit.
9. 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 to join us on campus.
