Welcome to Terp Family
Flu and other virus season is upon us again and I’m writing with some things to consider. We are seeing many ill students (as is typical in the fall) with fevers and sick symptoms for a variety of reasons.
As UMD students progress through college, they should think about finding an internship for the fall, spring, or summer. Internships are a great way to explore potential career fields, gain relevant work experience, and more. To get the lowdown on how to help your student land that coveted internship, we sat down with Erica Ely, Program Director of Internships in the University Career Center & The President’s Promise, for a Q&A.
Most universities schedule orientations for both first-time college students and parents/families 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/families who are letting them go--but also the siblings left behind.
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).
