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).
Learn more about supporting your Terp through the housing selection process in this webinar from the Offices of Parent and Family Affairs and Resident Life.
Study Abroad
As the summer shines promisingly on the horizon, perhaps you and your family are looking forward to some travel together, maybe even to an international location. Juggling work schedules, holidays, weddings, graduations, family reunions and all the other obligations and opportunities of this season, however, complicates travel planning.

Spring Break is upon us, and for many students the first collegiate Spring Break experience is a rite of passage. Spring Break is often a time to travel with friends to Mexico, hit the snowy slopes of the Rocky Mountains, head overseas to explore a new place, or participate in a UMD sponsored service-learning trip.
