The Support Doesn't Stop with Orientation!

The Office of Student Orientation and Transition provides new students with the opportunity to connect with faculty, staff, and upperclassmen students throughout their first semester on campus. UNIV100 is designed to give new students a space to explore their academic interests, personal and professional passions, and make meaningful connections with fellow Terps while gaining a grasp on all of the resources UMD has to offer. UNIV100 is a one-credit course that most new students will enroll in during their first semester at the University of Maryland, College Park.

All new students in the School of Public Health (SPHL) and life science majors (Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Neuroscience) in the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences (CMNS) are required to enroll in UNIV100. Students participating in the Freshman Connection program are also required to enroll in UNIV100, regardless of their spring academic college. Students enrolled in the College of Behavioral & Social Sciences (BSOS), College of Education (EDUC), the A. James Clark School of Engineering (ENGR), the School of Architecture (ARCH), Letters and Sciences (LTSC) and the College of Agriculture & Natural Resources (AGNR), and non-life science majors in the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences (CMNS) are strongly encouraged to enroll in UNIV100.
