Define Your Success

We love what we do because we get to work with students. Our interactions and all of our programs are designed to support students in defining their own success and in developing a course of action to achieve it.

Office For Students in Transition (SIT)

We have one passion in SIT - students. We have years of experience listening to students, mentoring them, cheering for them, consoling them, and supporting them; but we also know we learn from students as much as they learn from us.


As a mandatory program for all incoming new and transfer students, Orientation will help ensure students are on the right academic track for a successful, smooth transition to UMD. Check out the details for how to signup for an Orientation date.
