Invitations to Advisement & Registration are sent to admitted students beginning in mid January for students beginning at UMD in Fall 2012. After that time, invitations are mailed the week after students are admitted to UMD.
Please note that you have a finite amount of time to respond to your invitation to Advisement & Registration. Secure your spot for Fall 2012 by confirming an Advisement & Registration date as soon as possible after receiving your invitation. if you were admitted to UMD prior to April 9, your reply MUST be received by May 1, 2012 to hold your place at UMD for Fall 2012. If you reply after this date, you must call 1-800-232-1339 to find out whether your place for fall term is still available. If you were admitted to UMD after April 9, you must reply to your Advisement & Registration invitation within 4 weeks of admission to hold your place at UMD for fall 2012. Space availability is subject to change without notice.
To reserve an Advisement & Registration date, either reserve your date online or return the Advisement and Registration Reply form by mail, along with your Advisement & Registration fee.
If you reply by mail, you will need to indicate your first and second preference for dates on the reply form, recognizing that each session has a limited capacity. The earlier sessions allow you to choose from a wider selection of classes than the later dates.
Whether you reply online or by mail, you will receive a confirmation packet once both the reply and the fee are received. The confirmation packet will indicate the session at which you have a reservation and will also provide information to help you prepare for your Advisement & Registration session. Please read this information carefully and complete the items on the checklist enclosed with your packet.
If you are requesting an Advisement & Registration date on the same day as a friend, you should return your reply forms together in the same envelope. Be sure to select dates on which both students' college units meet.
