New Students: Next Steps & Orientation

Congratulations on your admission to the UMD Bachelor of Science in Information Science program offered at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG)! Please follow the steps below to get started as a new student.

We would also like to invite you to virtually explore our campus to familiarize yourself with all the wonderful places and services USG offers.

STEP 1: Complete New Student Checklists
STEP 2: Set Up Multi-Factor Authentication
All UMD students must use multi-factor authentication to log into all university resources that use the Central Authentication System (CAS). This is required, and students will not be able to log in until they have enabled MFA
STEP 3: Attend Orientation
