New Students: Next Steps & Orientation

Congratulations on your admission to the UMD College of Information (INFO)! If you have not yet accepted your admission and have questions, please do not hesitate to connect with our advising team or attend an Admitted Student Open House.

If you have accepted your admission, please follow the steps below to get started as a new student at the UMD College Park campus:

STEP 1: Complete UMD New Student Checklists

Review the University of Maryland’s information and checklists for undergraduates, which include information about getting your university ID, housing, dining, documentation, and financial aid.

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: Explore the Campus & Attend an Admitted Student Open House

Explore the campus with a virtual tour or in person — plus attend an Admitted Student Open House (optional).

STEP 4: Attend Orientation

Our advising team is here to help students transition into college life. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions, concerns, or ideas.

Please visit our InfoSci at College Park home page for information about advising, curriculum, registration, financial aid, education and technology resources, student handbooks, and more.
