Welcome to the iSchool!
We are so excited to welcome you to the dynamic University of Maryland community! The university has specific checklists and information for undergraduate and graduate students, including information about getting your university ID, housing, dining, documentation, and financial aid.
The College of Information Studies hosts a college-specific New Student Orientation for graduate and undergraduate students where you will meet faculty & staff, connect with other students, and learn about all of the ways you can get the most out of your time at the college. The morning will be spent collectively as a college, and then after lunch, students will be in program-specific breakout sessions with faculty, staff, current students, and fellow incoming students.
- Graduate students are required to attend this orientation.
- Undergraduate students are invited to attend, but attendance is not required. However, all undergraduate students are required to attend the general University of Maryland's Undergraduate Orientation. More information can be found here.
The Fall 2017 College of Information Studies New Student Orientation will be held on Wednesday, August 23rd in the Colony Ballroom in the Stamp Student Union. Registration will begin at 8:30 am, and we will begin promptly at 9:00 am. Please plan to be there until 4:00 pm.
