Departments and Programs
Welcome to the Student Life Parent Resources Page. Our division assists students from the time they show interest in attending UMD until they graduate and move beyond our doors. We realize many will have questions and concerns regarding experience at UMD, here are numerous resources that can be helpful and informative.
Planning a career helps in choosing a major field of study. Our Career Services office has many resources available to assist with this task. They offer a career handbook as well as job fairs and sessions on planning careers.
Should students have a disability (learning, psychological, physical, hearing or visual) that requires academic accomodations, the Office of Disability Resources is there to assist. They provide accommodations that range from extra time for tests to note-takers to interpreters in class. Their web page gives information on providing documentation of disability.
The Office of Cultural Diversity supports students by enhancing academic achievement, creating a sense of belonging, celebrating diversity, and fostering positive relations among UMD students.
Our Knowledge Management Center supports three applications created by the U of M to help students plan their academic path, document learning and find ways to get involved. The Graduation Planner allows students to plan for all the requirements needed for their proposed major(s) and to share their plans with their advisers for feedback. The ePortfolio tool assists students in documenting learning. Students can showcase their skills and abilities by creating professional portfolios to share with future employers or anyone their choose. The new Engage! search engine gives students an easy way to discover opportunities that helps pursue interests and aspirations and compliment their academic experiences.
The Supportive Services Program assists students to master the courses they register for. If students experience difficulty with the subject matter, they need only stop in to the Tutoring Center for some help.
The health and wellness of your son or daughter is a concern to you and to us. Our student Health Services provides medical services, as well as counseling services and health education. Staff are well trained to deal with any situation that arises.
Staff in Student Life are happy to support both you and your son or daughter at UMD.
