Early Arrival Program
This optional program is for first-year students attending a two-day Orientation program, who identify with one of the following groups:
- Out-of-State/International Students
- Students of Color
- First Generation Students (we define this as a student whose parent(s)/legal guardian(s) have not completed a bachelor's degree)
The fee for this program is $40, and will be posted to the student's Bursar account following Orientation. To sign up for this program, please click here.
Note: Those students who wish to stay overnight before their 2-day orientation that DO NOT identify with any of these groups may still do so.
Check-In for these early arrivals begins at 4 pm at Denton Hall. Once you arrive, you will have the option to go to local restaraunts with a member of the Orientation Staff for dinner. Please bring your own money for dinner the night before your orientation date. Call our office at 301-314-8217 for more information about coming early to the University of Maryland.
