Next Steps & Orientation – Incoming Graduate Students

Congratulations on your admission to the UMD INFO College! Please follow the steps below to get started as a new student.

STEP 1: Complete UMD New Student Checklists
Review the University of Maryland’s information and checklists for graduate students, 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: Attend Orientation

Required for Graduate Students – UMD INFO College New Student Orientation (you will receive information about this via email)

Optional for Graduate Students – UMD University-wide New Graduate Student Orientation
