Congratulations and welcome to the University of Maryland College of Information Studies (INFO)! You are joining a close knit community with world recognized researchers and teachers who will lead your educational journey. 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, here are next steps:

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
