Liberal Education Requirements


UMD Catalog
This is where you will find policies, procedures, requirements, and the information you need to know in order to successfully navigate through UMD and graduate.

Your Record - APAS Report

To see what courses you have completed and what courses you still need to take, please consult your APAS Report, which is your official record.  
Exploring other majors? You can also run a "What If" APAS report to see where you stand in a different major.  You can see how the courses you have already taken fit in, see what you still have left to complete, and know how many credits you have left to graduate. This option is found at the bottom of the page when you login to your APAS Report.

Graduation Planner

This is a planning tool that pulls information from the UMD Catalog (program requirements, course descriptions, prerequisites, liberal education requirements) and from your record - your APAS Report (or "What if" APAS Report).  It grabs all this information and pulls it together in one convenient place where you can make a semester-by-semester plan of your path to graduation.

BE CAUTIOUS WITH OTHER SOURCES OF INFORMATION:

How reliable are opinions of other students on classes?

Consider their personality type versus your personality type

Consider their learning style versus your learning style

Consider their motivation in taking a course compared to your motivation

Always dig deeper -- ask WHY did you like or not like that class?

Rely on your academic advisor and the UMD catalog for the scoop on policies and procedures, rather than on fellow students who may not have accurate information.

How reliable are web sites that rate professors?

Anyone can post there, regardless of whether or not they have had that class.  The poster could even be the professor!

Consider your learning style and personality -- what you like in a class may be very different from what another student likes.

Some students may use those sites in an attempt to seek revenge for a poor grade that was their own responsibility.

Take the information with a grain of salt - people's opinions can be overly positive or overly negative due to their own perspectives and not necessarily due to objective truth.
