Congrats! You’ve been accepted as a Terp!

Congratulations Class of 2024… YOU’VE BEEN ACCEPTED! It IS great to be a Terp for so many reasons. You can all now take that deep sigh of relief that your student’s decision has been made and then take a look at our list of what to do next. Finally, parents can take a huge sigh of relief and then take a look at our list of what to do next. While this may sound silly, first check your student’s admission letter for accuracy regarding their name, entrance term, address, and major. If any changes need to be made, it needs to be done as soon as possible.

The first step after deciding you want to be a Terp is to make it official! Your student will need to respond to their offer of admission by completing the Decision Response, located on their UMD Checklist on MyCoalition. After hitting the YES button, make sure they submit the enrollment deposit. This is a deposit of $400 that is nonrefundable and reserves their place in the incoming class and is applied to tuition. It is important to get the deposit in by May 1 to ensure their spot. The next step your student should do is set up their UMD Directory ID. Students are able to acquire and create their UMD ID approximately one business day after the date of their admission decision on the Directory ID website. Make sure they keep track of this ID because it will be used all throughout their time at the University of Maryland.

An important step after creating an ID is to set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). MFA is used by students every time they log into UMD secure websites, which can be every day. MFA will also be necessary when students fill out their Housing and Dining Agreement as well as other systems such as student financial aid, registration for orientation and courses, and many more student services. After receiving their Directory ID, students will be able to register for orientation. Due to COVID-19, this year’s orientation will be offered to students online.

You will also want to plan out where your student will live and how they will eat, aka the Housing and Dining Agreement. Every new first-year student who desires to live in campus residence halls must complete the Housing and Dining Agreement by May 1 in order to be eligible to live on campus. You will need your UMD Directory ID when completing this step, so make sure you have successfully acquired yours. This form requires a $25 non-refundable fee, which will be applied to the students’ accounts later once they confirm their enrollment. If they have a specific dorm preference, I would recommend filling out the form as soon as possible.

Then get that immunizations form completed and sent in. Registration cannot happen without this. By the way, while you are on the health services page, take note of all the amazing services they offer students. At UMD, it is a requirement that every student enrolled in 6 or more credits has insurance whether university-sponsored or their own plan. Students, regardless of their coverage, can access all of the services and programs that student health services have to offer. More information about student health services.UMD has a page dedicated to information for enrolled students, so for extra information check out that website.
