- Review Your Pre-Set Class Schedule
Students in this program will receive a pre-set class schedule that allows for the completion of the program in two years. You will be provided with this schedule by your advisor prior to registration.
- Ready to register?
Consult the University Schedule of Classes and register for undergraduate and graduate classes through Testudo, the University of Maryland registration portal.
- Non-InfoSci majors will be unable to register for INST courses until the first day of Schedule Adjustment, and may only enroll in INST courses with permission from the instructor of the course.
- The instructor must e-mail the Undergraduate Student Services Office directly.
