It’s really easy. You can create an account and complete the application online or print the application and mail it to us. Done.


When you submit your application, whether online or via mail, you will also need to provide:

  1. A $40 nonrefundable application fee (via credit card online or check in the mail);
  2. Your high school transcripts (with senior year courses);
  3. ACT or SAT scores; and
  4. College or university transcripts (only if you've taken PSEO or CITS classes or completed any other college coursework).

General Advice

Don’t wait. The earlier you apply, the greater your chances of receiving financial aid and scholarships. Plus, UMD mails advisement & registration invites according to your application date.

You can complete your online application in more than one sitting by saving your work as you go.

Expect to hear back from us about four weeks after you submit your application. In the meantime, you can check your application status online.
