Terp Family Orientation

We are glad that your student is joining us at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD). The Office of Student Orientation and Transition provides programs for both new students and their families. Family support is an important factor in student success. Our team has designed a Terp Family Orientation program for family members and supporters of new Terps.

The Terp Family Orientation is an optional program that is separate from the New Student Orientation program. The Terp Family Orientation Program is a one-day in person experience designed to answer your administrative, academic, and transition questions. Terp Family Orientation occurs on the first day of a two-day overnight New Student Orientation or concurrently with a one-day New Student Orientation program. At this time, we do not offer an online Terp Family Orientation Program, however we look forward to offering this option for Summer 2023. 

To register for this program, you can call our office at (301) 314-8217 or email us at Please include the name and email address of all attendees, your student's full name, and their 9-digit UID number. Students can also register their family members and supporters when they register for their New Student Orientation.
