WELCOME TRANSFER STUDENTS!
The Office for Students in Transition is pleased to welcome students with previous college and life experience to UMD! You are an integral member of the UMD community, and your insights, perspectives, and experiences serve to enrich UMD in many ways.
With you in mind, we are excited to offer new and improved programming for our transfer students as you transition to life as a Bulldog! Below you will find the details of what you need to know before you begin your experience as a UMD Bulldog.
A comprehensive review program of your student record so that you and UMD are prepared for your Advisement & Registration appointment. Reviews can be scheduled for Mid-March-Mid-May. Sign up for your review today!!
Advisement & Registration is a mandatory program for all incoming transfer students. The program is designed to help you get set up in UMD systems and to allow you to register for your A&R date where you will get oriented to UMD, schedule your classes, meet faculty, staff and other students, and get your campus id, so you are ready for the start of the semester.
