Welcome to Terp Family

Articles

Your student, along with eight million others, is immersed in four of the most important years of their life. It is a time that is both exciting and frightening—a period of joy, pain, discovery, and disappointment. With all that is learned and experienced, your student will no doubt leave the University of Maryland as a different person and, along the way, you will experience much of the same happiness and defeats as does your student.
Family
Most universities schedule orientations for both first-time college students and parents to help them cope with the changes and demands of the freshman experience. However, the reality is that a child's departure to college affects all members of the family system--not only the student who is leaving and the parents who are letting them go--but also the siblings left behind.
During orientation this summer, we informed you about the AlcoholEdu for College online alcohol education course that is required by the University for all new students to complete. Instructions about the course are being sent to them via postal mail.

UMD requires that all undergraduate students taking 6 or more credits have health insurance. Students are required to provide proof of health insurance by completing an on-line waiver once each academic year. Many students are covered on a family plan and do not need to purchase additional insurance from the university. Be sure your student completes the online waiver to prevent automatic enrollment in the University’s Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).
