Welcome to UMD! Invitations to sign up for Advisement & Registration will begin going out in mid November.
Congratulations on becoming a UMD Bulldog! We are excited to have you come to campus and register for your first semester of UMD Classes.
For complete step-by-step instructions with visuals.
If you are experiencing difficulties with Symplicity in Google Chrome, please try a different browser.
First, initiate your account: https://www.umn.edu/initiate
Second, select an Advisement and Registration (A&R) date through the Transition website: https://umd-transition.symplicity.com
Third, pay the non-refundable $80 fee in the Transition software.
Note: We cannot secure your selected date until payment is received; if we cannot accommodate your first choice selection, you will receive a phone call to pick a second choice. You will know that you have been confirmed to your A&R date when you receive an email at your UMD email account stating your official time and date!
Once payment is received...
Fourth, check your UMD email and your Transition account regularly between now and your A&R date to receive updates, information and A&R next steps (where to arrive, park, UCard, etc...).
Questions or confused? Call us at 218-726-6393. We will be happy to guide you through any step of the process!
We encourage you to sign up now for the UCard's express option. You will pick up your UCard during your A&R session.
