Description/Notes: 

Welcome, new Terps!

Congratulations and welcome to campus, first-year IAA Terps! We are excited to have you as a new student in our program. At New Student Orientation, you will meet your advisor, get to know other students, register for classes, and obtain a University photo ID card.

All incoming IAA students are required to attend and participate in New Student Orientation. Participants are required to remain for the entirety of the event. Students must bring an official photo ID to Orientation.


Preparing for New Student Orientation:

Prior to Orientation, all students must:

  1. download an Orientation checklist
  2. activate their UMD computer accounts
  3. submit an Immunization Record form to the University Health Center
  4. pay a $100 Orientation fee

The Immunization Record form must be submitted to the University Health Center (UHC) at least one week prior to Orientation, or the student will be blocked from registering for classes. UHC will lift the block once the form is turned in.

Please note, UHC does not accept immunization forms by email. You can upload your immunization information and form at www.myuhc.umd.edu, using your directory ID and password to log in. You can also submit your immunization form by mail, fax (301-314-5234), or in person to UHC.

Additionally, all UMD students are required to have health insurance. If you already have health insurance coverage, submit a Health Insurance Waiver to avoid being charged for UMD’s Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).

Students who have recently graduated from high school must send a final official high school transcript documenting graduation to the IAA Office prior to Orientation:
