HISTORY 



In 1859, on the site now occupied 
by Morrill Hall, Charles Benedict 
Calvert, a wealthy planter and 
later congressman from 
Riverdale, established the 
Maryland Agricultural College. 
Its purpose was to educate the 
sons of Maryland farmers and to 
cultivate the free flow of ideas. 
After the Civil War, the College 
became one of the nation's first 
land-grant colleges under the 
Morrill Act of 1867, and by 1900, 
had begun to bring prosperity to 
the state through its agricultural 
outreach programs. 
As it did so, it changed the state 
and was itself transformed. By 
the early twentieth century, the 
College had expanded its offer- 
ings into engineering, business, 
and the liberal arts. Women were 
admitted as students in 1912; by 
1929, they numbered over 300, 
had graduated from every college 
in what now was a university, 
and had become active partici- 
pants in all aspects of campus 
life. Shortly before World War I, 
graduate work began. In 1920, 
the college merged with the long- 
established professional schools 
in Baltimore, and the Maryland 
Agricultural College changed its 
name to the University of 
Maryland. 

Along with much of American 
society, the University was fur- 
ther transformed by World War 
II. The University revised its cur- 
riculum to provide a strong 
foundation in the liberal arts and 
sciences and reshaped its offer- 
ings in advanced studies to create 
a series of "majors" that would 
serve the emerging needs of 



industry, government, and soci- 
ety for highly-educated citizens. 
However, like the state of which 
it was a part, the University of 
Maryland was segregated by 
race, and barred African- 
Americans from attending 
College Park. Beginning in the 
post-war period, Maryland's 
black citizens asserted their right 
to attend the state's premier pub- 
lic university with ever greater 
force and power. In 1950, a suc- 
cessful lawsuit required the 
University to allow a young black 
man, Parrin Mitchell of 
Baltimore, to attend graduate 
classes at College Park. In the 
following year, Hiram Whittle, 
another Baltimorean, became the 
first African- American under- 
graduate student admitted to this 
institution. Still, it was not until 
the 1954 landmark Supreme 
Court ruling in Brown v. Board 
of Education that the University 
of Maryland Board of Regents 
agreed to accept all qualified stu- 
dents without regard to race. 
Now, the once segregated college 
has become a multicultural, inter- 
national university. 
The evolution of College Park 
mirrored the pattern of social 
change in other ways as well. In 
the 1960s, students here as else- 
where sought more opportunities 
for self-expression as they joined 
in the movement to create an 
egalitarian society. Their con- 
cerns in part led to the expansion 
of curriculum offerings into new 
areas, such as Afro- American 
Studies, Women's Studies, and 
Urban Studies. A wider choice of 
electives encouraged students to 
explore various disciplines; the 
Individual Studies Program 



developed to accommodate stu- 
dents who wanted to pursue cross- 
disciplinary studies; teacher evalua- 
tions encouraged students to cri- 
tique the quality of classroom 
instruction, and periodic reviews of 
programs and administrators 
became standard. 
In 1988, the General Assembly of 
Maryland in an historic act desig- 
nated the University of Maryland 
at College Park as the flagship 
institution for the newly-expanded 
University of Maryland System. As 
well as pursuing a serious research 
mission and continuing its high 
level of service to the state, the 
University rededicated itself to pro- 
viding the highest quality graduate 
and undergraduate education. 
Increased undergraduate opportu- 
nities for research and individual 
study and the expansion of the 
University Honors Program, the 
creation of CORE, the establish- 
ment of Center for Teaching 
Excellence, the launching of 
College Park Scholars all affirmed 
the legislature's designation of flag- 
ship. 

After almost a century and a half, 
the University of Maryland at 
College Park seems to bear little 
resemblance to the Maryland 
Agricultural College. Yet, at heart, 
it remains the same: an engine of 
economic growth, to be sure; a 
great research university, yes; a 
source of enlightenment for the citi- 
zens of the state and the world, of 
course. But, above all, this is a 
place where the life of the mind 
remains primary, and where noth- 
ing is more valued than the open 
exploration and dissemination of 
both new and old ideas. 



The university's 
close links to Balti- 
more, Annapolis, 
and Washington, 
D.C., provide excit- 
ing opportunities 
for internships, 
research, cultural 
activities, and 
recreation. 



RESEARCH 



Opportunities for conducting 
research abound at the University 
of Maryland at College Park and 
in the surrounding area, both for 
faculty to advance their own 
expertise and bring their insights 
with them into the classroom, and 
for students to begin their explo- 
ration of their special interests 
with practical experience. On 
campus, special facilities and a 
number of organized research 
centers, bureaus, and institutes 
promote the acquisition and 
analysis of new knowledge in the 
arts, sciences, and applied fields. 
The University's unique loca- 
tion — just 10 miles from down- 
town Washington, D.C., and 
approximately 30 miles from both 
Baltimore and Annapolis — 
enhances the research of its facul- 
ty and students by providing 
access to some of the finest 
libraries and research centers in 
the country including the Library 
of Congress, Folger Shakespeare 
Library, National Archives, 
National Library of Medicine, and 
National Agricultural Library. In 
the Baltimore area are the Enoch 
Pratt Free Library and the 
Maryland Historical Association 
Library. The state capital at 
Annapolis houses the Maryland 
Hall of Records. 
In recent years, several research 
opportunities have been created 
specifically for undergraduate 
students.As early as the second 
semester of freshman year, stu- 
dents are eligible to participate in 
the Undergraduate Research 
Assistant Program. As research 
assistants, students develop close 
intellectual relationships with 
faculty mentors and collaborate 
on faculty research projects. The 
Summer Undergraduate Research 
Program, for students who have 



reached sophomore standing, and 
whose ethnicities are underrepre- 
sented in their disciplines of 
study, provides inspiration and 
incentive to continue study 
through at least the Master's level. 
Multidisciplinary Senior Summer 
Scholarship grants enable stu- 
dents between the junior and 
senior years to spend a summer 
working closely with faculty men- 
tors on scholarly, research, or 
artistic projects while earning aca- 
demic credit. 

Additional, discipline-specific 
research opportunities are avail- 
able off-campus. UMCP is leading 
a cooperative excavation of the 
ruined city of Caesarea Maritima 
in Israel, where Pontius Pilate 
lived while serving as Roman 
governor of Judea. Elsewhere, 
students participate in archeologi- 
cal digs at Cape May, N.J., and in 
Historic Annapolis. Aided by the 
Maryland Sea Grant, College Park 
zoologists and microbiologists 
study the fisheries of the 
Chesapeake Bay. 

Research internships are available 
through academic departments 
and Experiential Learning 
Programs. The sites include fed- 
eral agencies and private organi- 
zations such as the National 
Zoological Park, Congressional 
Arts Caucus, Smithsonian 
Institution, Women's Legal 
Defense Fund, the National 
Institutes of Health, National 
Archives, and the U.S. 
Department of Agriculture. 
Students may work in Annapolis 
or on Capitol Hill through the 
Maryland Legislative Internships.

Media Services, serves as the 
central audio-visual department 
for the UMCP libraries. The 
recently renovated and expander 
Theodore R. McKeldin Library is 
the main research library of the 
UMCP library system. 
McKeldin's reference works, per 
odicals, circulating books, specia 
collections and other materials 
provide support for research anc 
teaching throughout the 
University, with special emphas: 
on the humanities, the social sci- 
ences, and the life sciences. The

CENTER 



COM P UTE R Students at College Park are part 

_ of an academic community that 

J L t N L b nas ^ ree access t° networked com- 

puter resources and facilities that 
are among the best in the coun- 
try. The Computer Science Center 
maintains these resources and 
provides a vast array of academic 
computing services to students, 
faculty and staff. 
Workstation laboratories called 
Open Labs feature IBM, 
Macintosh, and UNIX environ- 
ments, and provide high-quality 
laser printing. Open Labs are 
found in academic buildings, dor- 
mitories, libraries, and parking 
garages and are staffed with com- 
puter-experienced students 
(called First- Aiders) who can help 
with problems operating the 
computers or the software on 
them. Free computer accounts 
enable users to store class work 
on a networked server, download 
classroom support materials and 
other electronic information from 
campus networked resources 
such as inforM, or send electronic 
mail to professors, peers, or 
friends at other universities. And, 
for additional help using the 
computers and software, non- 
credit, short-term, "peer training" 
is available to students through- 
out each semester.

unless the alteration is to the 
student's advantage and can be 
accommodated within the span 
of years normally required for 
graduation. The University 
cannot give assurance that all 
students will be able to take all 
courses required to complete 
the academic program of their 
choice within eight semesters. 
Additionally, because of space 
limitations in limited enroll- 
ment programs, College Park 
may not be able to offer admis- 
sion to all qualified students 
applying to these programs. 

When the actions of a student 
are judged by competent 
authority, using established 
procedure, to be detrimental to 
the interests of the university 
community, that person may be 
required to withdraw from the 
University. (For the complete 
University of Maryland Code 
of Student Conduct, see 
Appendix C.)

CHAPTER 1 



ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS AND 
APPLICATION PROCEDURES 



FRESHMAN ADMISSION 

The University of Maryland is a publicly-supported, land grant institution 
dedicated primarily to the educational needs of Maryland residents. Within 
its responsibilities as a state institution, the University attracts a 
cosmopolitan student body and each year offers admission to a number of 
promising students from other states and jurisdictions. Currently, 50 
states, the District of Columbia, 2 territories, and 100 foreign countries are 
represented in the undergraduate population. Admission policies are 
determined by the Board of Regents. 

The University of Maryland at College Park maintains a competitive 
admission policy, with priority given to those students with the most 
outstanding academic credentials, and seeks to enroll students who 
demonstrate the potential for academic success. 

That potential is typically assessed by examination of high school course 
work and results from either the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the 
American College Test Assessment (ACT). In general, all entering students 
should have completed four years of high school English; three years of 
history or social science; two years of science, both of which will involve 
laboratory work; three years of mathematics courses equivalent at least to 
Algebra I, Algebra II, and Plane Geometry; and two years of a foreign 
language. In addition, students are strongly encouraged to take a fourth 
year of mathematics. 

High School Record 

In general, the University of Maryland at College Park requires freshman 
applicants to earn a high school diploma prior to their first registration at 
the University. Applicants should make sure that final high school 
transcripts are sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions prior to 
enrolling. All offers of admission are contingent upon satisfactory 
completion of current work. 

Each applicant's previous academic achievement is reviewed according to 
the information available on the student's high school transcript. In some 
cases mid-year grades for the senior year also will be considered. The 
Admissions Committee considers the following academic criteria when 
evaluating candidates for admission: nature and rigor of course load, 
grades in academic courses, progress as reflected in grades overtime and 
performance compared with high school peers. High school grades will be 
reviewed in the context of the level of course work taken. 

Standardized Admission Test Scores 

All freshman applicants must present results from either the ACT or the 
SAT. Test results may be submitted directly to the University of Maryland at 
College Park by the American College Testing Program for the ACT or the 
Educational Testing Service for the SAT or by the high school. The applicant 
is strongly urged to include his or her social security number when 
registering for either test. The social security number will expedite 
processing of the application for admission. The reporting code for the 
University of Maryland at College Park is 1746 for applicants submitting the 
ACT, and is 5814 for those submitting the SAT. The university strongly 
recommends that these tests be taken as early as possible, but no later 
than January of the year of application. Further information on both tests 
maybe obtained from high school guidance counselors or directly from the 
American College Testing Program, Iowa City, Iowa 52243 and the 
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, N.J. 08540. 



Additional Criteria 

While standardized test scores and grade point averages play an important 
role in the admission process, they are not the sole factors in determining 
a candidate's admissibility. Students are asked to submit a 
recommendation from their school counselor on the form provided in the 
application. A list of cocurricular activities in high school is requested on 
the application. An essay and additional letters of recommendation also 
will be considered. The Admissions Committee may review a student in 
light of his or her unique talents and abilities. Students with 
accomplishments in art, music, leadership and other cocurricular 
endeavors should make this information available to the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions. 

Application Forms 

Application forms maybe obtained by writing to the Office of Undergraduate 
Admissions, Mitchell Building, University of Maryland, College Park, Md. 
20742-5235, or by calling 314-8385. Application forms may be obtained 
in many high school guidance offices, as well. 

Application Fee 

A non-refundable $30 application fee is required with each application. 

Fall Semester Freshman Admission 

The University of M aryland at College Park strongly urges that all applicants 
apply early to assure consideration for admission. Because of space 
limitations, the institution may not be able to offer admission to all 
qualified applicants. A completed application will include official high school 
transcript and SAT or ACT report, application and $30.00 fee. 

The University of Maryland at College Park operates according to a rolling 
admission plan. The admission committee begins reviewing applications 
and releasing decisions in November, with most decisions released by the 
end of March. Some applicants may be asked to submit senior mid-year 
grades before a final decision may be made. Students are encouraged to 
submit applications by December 1 for best consideration for admission 
and special programs. Qualified students who submit an application for 
admission by this date will be considered for merit-based scholarships. 
Most of the new first-year class is filled by the end of March, and 
subsequent applications are considered on a space-available basis. The 
following calendar describes the admission process for Fall semester 
applicants: 

November Admission committee begins to review applications 

and release decisions.

students who apply by this date will be considered

Special Admission Options 

To serve students who are not typical freshmen, the University of Maryland 
at College Park has developed special options for admission: 

Admission Options for High Achieving High School Students 

1. Concurrent Enrollment: Talented high school seniors have the 
opportunity to enroll at the University of Maryland at College Park for 
two courses, or seven credits, each semester. Successful applicants 
will have pursued a rigorous high school program and will have 
indicated exceptional performance and ability achieved over time. To 
apply, students must submit a) the completed application and fee, and 
b) high school transcript, c) an essay explaining why they are interested 
in the program, d) a letter of recommendation from the high school, and 
e) a letter of permission from the parents or guardian. Students must 
live within commuting distance. Tuition is assessed on a per-credit-hour 
basis. All mandatory fees apply in full. 

2. Summer Enrollment: High school students with a minimum 3.0 grade 
point average may enroll for courses during the summer preceding their 
junior or senior year. They must file a regular application for 
undergraduate admission, including an official high school transcript. 
Tuition is assessed on a per-credit-hour basis. All mandatory fees apply 
in full. 

3. Early Admission: Although the University of Maryland at College Park 
generally requires applicants to earn a high school diploma prior to their 
first full-time registration, the University will admit a limited number of 
well-qualified students without high school diplomas. Successful 
applicants will have pursued a rigorous high school program and will 
have indicated exceptional performance and ability achieved over time. 
Students must be within two credits of high school graduation and have 
the commitment of the high school to award a diploma after successful 
completion of the freshman year at College Park. To apply, students 
must submit a) the completed application and fee, b) high school 
transcript and SAT or ACT results, c) an essay explaining how they will 
benefit from the program, and d) a letter of permission from the parents 
or guardian. 

Early admission students are eligible for on-campus housing, 
scholarships based on academic achievement, and the University 
Honors Program. Early application is advised. 

4. Gifted Student Admission: The University will consider for admission a 
limited number of gifted students who have completed at least the 
seventh grade. Competitive applicants must have a superior academic 
record as measured by grades and standardized test scores. Students 
must have an initial conference with a member of the Undergraduate 
Admissions staff. The Admission staff may, if it is deemed helpful to 
the admission decision, make referrals for further assessment to 
campus counseling services. Students admitted under this category are 
usually limited to six credits of enrollment per semester. 



5. Students With Learning Disabilities: The University of Maryland at 
College Park expects that all students admitted to its degree programs 
will fulfill all of the published requirements for graduation. These 
requirements are widely published, and include fundamental studies in 
English and mathematics, as well as other general education 
requirements of the CORE program, and all curriculum requirements of 
the major program and the degree-granting college or school. Students 
should not accept an offer of admission with the expectation that any 
requirement will be waived. For additional information about the 
admission process for students with documented learning disabilities, 
please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. 

High School Equivalency Examination (GED) 

Maryland residents who are at least 16 years of age and who have not 
received a high school diploma maybe considered for admission, provided 
they have earned the high school General Education Equivalency (GED) 
certificate. In order to be admitted, the applicant must present an above 
average total score, as well as above average scores on each of the five 
parts of the test. 

Non-Accredited/ Non-Approved High School 

Students from non-accredited/ non-approved high schools who seek 
admission to the University of Maryland at College Park should contact the 
Office of Undergraduate Admissions for information. 



Advanced Placement (AP) Credit 

The University of Maryland at College Park encourages applicants to seek 
AP credit so that academically successful students may move forward in 
their programs at an appropriate pace. However, credit is not granted for all 
exams offered by the College Board. Credits are accepted and courses are 
exempted, based on departmental approval, according to the chart on the 
following page. Students should arrange to have their scores sent directly 
to the University of Maryland at College Park from the Educational Testing 
Service; the code is 5814. Students should also inform their advisors at 
Orientation that they anticipate receiving AP credit, because this 
information may affect their placement in subject-matter courses. 

If a student has already received AP credit at another institution, this credit 
will be reevaluated. The score received must be equivalent to the minimum 
score the University of Maryland at College Park accepted at the time the 
test was taken; otherwise, the credit will not be eligible for transfer. AP 
credits that are accepted are recorded as transfer credit on University of 
Maryland at College Park records, and figure in the total number of credits 
earned toward graduation. Students may not receive AP credit for an 
equivalent course taken at the University of Maryland at College Park or 
elsewhere. If students earn credit in a course equivalent to an AP exam for 
which they also earned credit, the AP credit will be deleted from their 
records. Students should check with their advisors for detailed information 
on the assignment of AP credit. 

Please note that the chart represents a general outline of AP credit. In all 
cases, credit is available only for grades of 3 or higher, subject to ongoing 
departmental reevaluation. All departments reserve the right to reevaluate 
the content of exams and to change the assignment of credit and course 
equivalences. Any new exams offered after February 15, 1990 may or may 
not be evaluated by the appropriate department. Students should check 
with their advisor at Orientation. 

Certain departments, particularly Math and Physics, have separate criteria 
for placement in courses and the assignment of credit. Students should 
check with those departments for additional information. All entering 
freshmen will be placed in math courses according to the University of 
Maryland at College Park math placement exam. 



International Baccalaureate Examination 
Credit Awards 

The University of Maryland at College Park awards credit to students who 
sit for International Baccalaureate exams according to the table below. 
Interested students should call the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for 
additional information, 314-8385. 

N.B.: Credit awards and course equivalences are subject to change.

Admission to Limited-Enrollment Programs 
(LEP) 

Certain colleges, schools, and departments within the University have taken 
steps to limit their enrollment in order to maintain quality programs. For the 
1994-95 academic year these included: School of Architecture; College of 
Business and Management; A. James Clark School of Engineering; 
Department of Government and Politics; College of Journalism; Department 
of Landscape Architecture; Department of Psychology; Department of 
Special Education; and all teacher education majors. LEP programs are 
continually reviewed. Students should check with the appropriate college or 
the Limited Enrollment Program Counselor at 314-8385 for updated 
information. 



Freshmen: Admission for new freshmen to Limited-Enrollment Programs is 
determined on a space-available basis. Most freshmen will gain entrance 
to the major of their choice. Because space may be limited for a particular 
major, early application is encouraged. Freshmen who are directly admitted 
to an LEP will be subject to a performance review when they complete 45 
college credits. The review varies from program to program, but always 
includes satisfactory performance in a set of appropriate courses. 
Students not passing the review will be required to choose another major. 
See the academic program description for specific details. 

Freshmen not directly admitted to an LEP may enroll in the Division of 
Letters and Sciences. Students are not guaranteed admission to an LEP at 
a later date, although they may gain admission by meeting the 
requirements outlined in their particular program by the time they complete 
56 credits at College Park. See the following section on LEP transfer 
admission and the LEP program descriptions for further details about this 
option. 

Transfers: Transfer students and on-campus students wishing to change 
their major to an LEP must meet a set of gateway courses with minimum 
grades in order to be admitted to the program. Space is limited in each 
program, and the most qualified applicants will be admitted each semester. 
Additional information for each of the limited-enrollment programs may be 
found in the descriptions of academic majors elsewhere in this catalog. 

Transfer students who are not directly admissible to an LEP upon 
application to the University will be assigned to an alternate program. 
Those with fewer than 56 credits will be assigned to the Division of Letters 
and Sciences, and will be allowed one opportunity to meet the gateway 
requirements by the time they complete 56 credits. Students with more 
than 56 credits will be admitted to an interim program for 1 semester in 
which they will be advised regarding their qualifications for the LEP and, in 
some cases, the need to choose another major. 



P re-Professional Programs and Options 

The University of Maryland at College Park offers preprofessional advising 
in Dental Hygiene, Dentistry, Law, Medical and Research Technology, 
Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Osteopathy, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, 
Podiatry, and Veterinary Medicine. This advising will guide the student to 
the best preparation for advanced study and training in these fields. For 
additional information, see the description of "Campus-Wide Programs" in 
this catalog. 

Participation in a preprofessional program at the University of Maryland at 
College Park does not guarantee admission to another branch of the 
University or to another institution. 

Students who have already earned more than 30 semester hours at 
another college-level institution, and who seek admission to 
preprofessional programs in Nursing, Pharmacy, Dental Hygiene, Physical 
Therapy, and Medical and Research Technology should contact the 
academic advisor for the preprofessional programs at the University of 
Maryland at College Park before filing an application for the University of 
Maryland at College Park. Please address correspondence to the academic 
advisor of the specific preprofessional program to which you are applying; 
for example, Advisor for Pre-Nursing Program, 0110 Hornbake Library, 
University of Maryland, College Park, Md. 20742. 



Special Applicants 

Golden Identification Card Program 

The University of Maryland at College Park participates in the University of 
Maryland's Golden Identification Card Program. The institution will make 
available courses and various services to persons who are 60 years of age 
or older, who are legal residents of the State of Maryland, and who are 
retired (not engaged in gainful employment for more than 20 hours per 
week). When persons eligible for this program are admitted to the 
University, they register on a space-available basis for credit courses as 
regular or special students in any session, and receive a Golden 
Identification card. Golden ID students must meet all course prerequisite 
and co-requisite requirements. Tuition is waived for these courses, 
however, a Golden ID administrative fee is assessed every semester. 
Golden ID students may register for a maximum of three courses per term. 
Golden ID students are not eligible for Consortium courses. The Golden 
Identification Card will entitle eligible persons to certain academic services, 
including the use of the libraries and the shuttle bus service. Such services 



6 Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 



will be available during any session only to persons who have registered for 
one or more courses for that semester. Golden ID students also have the 
opportunity to become involved with the Golden ID Student Association 
which provides cultural and social events, course recommendations, and 
peer advising. Additional information may be obtained from the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions, Ground Floor, Mitchell Building, 314-8385, or 
the Special Programs Office, 1108 Mitchell Building, 314-8237. 

Multi-Ethnic Students 

In keeping with the University Affirmative Action Program, special 
consideration will be given to multi-ethnic students who demonstrate the 
potential for academic success. Multi-ethnic students are urged to contact 
both an admission counselor in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions 
and the Office of Multi-Ethnic Student Education, 1101 Hornbake Library, 
405-5616. 

Non-Degree (Special) Students 

Applicants who qualify for admission but do not desire to work toward a 
baccalaureate degree may be admitted as non-degree-seeking (special) 
students. 

Special students who have received a baccalaureate degree are advised 
that no credit earned while enrolled as special students maybe applied at 
a later date to a graduate program. These post-baccalaureate students may 
enroll in undergraduate courses for which they possess the necessary 
prerequisites, but may not enroll in courses restricted to graduate students 
only. Students who wish to take courses at the graduate level (600 and 
above) must contact the Graduate School for information concerning 
admission requirements for Advanced Special Student status. 

Non-degree seeking (special) students who do not have a baccalaureate 
degree must submit transcripts and meet regular admission standards. 
Transcripts are not required from students with baccalaureate degrees. 
Because of space limitation, several departments require permission be 
given in advance to enroll as a non-degree student. Please contact the 
Office of Undergraduate Admissions for further information. 

Returning Students and Veterans 

Applicants who have not attended school for more than five years, or who 
have had military experience, should contact both an admission counselor 
and the Returning Students Program, 314-7693. 

Students returning to the University of Maryland at College Park after a 
separation of five calendar years may petition the appropriate dean to have 
a number of grades and credits from courses previously taken at the 
University of Maryland at College Park removed from the calculation of their 
cumulative grade point averages and from the credits applied toward 
graduation requirements. For more information, consult the chapter on 
Academic Regulations and Requirements. 



INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ADM ISSION 

The University of Maryland values the contribution international students 
make to the College Park academic community. Therefore, applications 
from the international community are welcomed. Due to the differences 
between foreign educational systems and education in the United States, 
international students may face a number of challenges in adapting to 
study at the University. Students who have received, throughout their 
secondary school and university level work, marks or examination results 
considered to be "very good" to "excellent" are those who are most likely 
to succeed at our institution. Admission for international students is 
competitive and offered only to those who are considered by the University 
to be better than average in their own educational settings. Students also 
have to demonstrate, in their secondary-level studies, that they have 
successfully completed a diversity of subjects representing language, 
mathematics, physical or biological science and social sciences. Because 
of the keen competition at the University of Maryland, we suggest 
applicants apply early. 

Applicants holding visa types A, E, F, G, H, I, J, and L will be admitted on 
the basis of their academic backgrounds and must present records with 
marks of "very good" to "excellent". Non-immigrants who have completed 
four years of U.S. secondary education (grades 9 through 12) will be 
evaluated on the same basis as U.S. citizens and Permanent 
Residents/ Immigrants. International applicants who present one full year of 
acceptable university level credit will be considered for admission as 



transfer students. Those with less than one full year of acceptable credit 
must also present secondary school records. 

International students applying for admission to undergraduate programs at 
the University of Maryland at College Park must submit: 1) an application 
and fee for admission; 2) copies of official secondary school records, 
including any secondary external examinations; 3) transcripts of any 
university level studies completed in the United States or elsewhere. 
Original documents written in a language other than English must be 
accompanied by literal English translations. 

International students who have completed grades 10, 11, and 12 in a 
United States high school must also submit results from Scholastic 
Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Test Assessment (ACT). All 
freshman applicants to the A. James Clark School of Engineering, 
regardless of where they have studied, must present SAT scores. 
Admission to limited-enrollment programs (see "Admission to Limited- 
Enrollment Majors" for identification of these majors) requires international 
students to have marks of no less than "excellent" in previous education. 

International students on F-l student visas accepted for admission to the 
University will receive the 1-20 form from the office of International 
Education Services (IES); this form is needed to secure, transfer, and 
extend the student visa after applicants have certified their financial 
support and submitted evidence of satisfactory English proficiency to the 
IES office. 

International students accepted for admission will be expected to plan their 
arrival sufficiently in advance of the registration period to secure housing 
and attend the special orientation program for international students that is 
held prior to registration. 

English Proficiency 

All applicants must demonstrate a satisfactory level of English proficiency. 
Such proficiency is necessary to pursue a full course of study at the 
University of Maryland at College Park. All non-native speakers of English 
must submit a score report from the Test of English as a Foreign Language 
(TOEFL) during the application process. Non-native speakers who have 
received a degree from a tertiary-level institution in the U.S., English- 
speaking Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, or 
Commonwealth Caribbean are exempt from the TOEFL requirement. Native 
speakers of English are defined as those educated entirely in the U.S., 
English-speaking Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, 
or Commonwealth Caribbean. Applicants who are unsure as to whether or 
not they need to take the TOEFL should contact the Office of International 
Education Services. Non-native speakers of English who have graduated 
from U.S. high schools must submit TOEFL examination results or a score 
of 400 or higher on the SAT verbal section. For information and a TOEFL 
application brochure, write to: TOEFL, Box 2896, Princeton, N.J . 08540. 

Optimal Application Deadlines 

All applicants must submit all foreign educational credentials, including 
certified English translations if the original documents are in a language 
other than English. All admission decisions will be released on a rolling 
basis. 



H, I, J and L must meet 



1. All non-immigrants holding visas A, E, F, G, 
the following application deadlines: 

Fall semester— March 1 
Spring semester— August 1 



2. Permanent residents with foreign documents and U.S. citizens with 
foreign documents should submit their completed applications by 
the following deadlines: 

Fall semester— April 30 
Spring semester— November 1 

Return of Foreign Records 

Transcripts, records, and mark sheets of applicants with foreign credentials 
are maintained by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for two years. If 
these documents are original copies, the student must request their return 
within two years of application. At the end of this period, the records are 
destroved. 



Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 7 



Immigrant Students 



Immigrant applicants for admission at the undergraduate level are 
admissible under the same guidelines as U.S. citizens except that 
applicants, including transfer applicants, whose native language is other 
than English must demonstrate a satisfactory level of English proficiency 
to pursue an approved course of study. 



TRANSFER ADMISSION 

A student who has attended any regionally accredited institution of higher 
education following graduation from high school and attempted 12 or more 
credits will be considered for admission as a transfer student. Transfer 
applicants must be in good academic and disciplinary standing at their 
previous institutions to be eligible for transfer to the University of Maryland 
at College Park. 

When the number of students desiring admission exceeds the number that 
can be accommodated at this institution, or in a particular professional or 
specialized program, admission will be based on overall grade point 
average and the strength of the academic program the student has 
pursued. 



Requirements 



Admission for transfer applicants is primarily based on the number of 
credits a student has earned and the cumulative grade point average for 
all college-level work. In calculating eligibility, the University will use the 
average stated on the transcript by the sending institution. When an 
applicant has attended more than one institution, a cumulative average for 
all previous college work attempted will be computed. To be considered, 
course work must have been completed at a regionally accredited college 
or university. All students with grade point averages below 3.0 will be 
considered on a space-available basis. These requirements apply to all 
transfer candidates, including those seeking to transfer from another 
institution in the University of Maryland System. In accordance with 
Maryland Higher Education Commission transfer policies, applicants from 
Maryland community colleges are, in some instances, given special 
consideration, and, when qualified, may be admitted with a cumulative 
grade point average of 2.0 or higher. Students who were not admissible as 
high school seniors must complete at least 28 semester hours with the 
grade point average as stated above.

Transfer from Maryland Community Colleges 

Currently, Maryland residents who attend Maryland public community 
colleges may be admitted in accordance with the criteria outlined in the 
general statement above. The university subscribes to the policies set 
forth in the Maryland Higher Education Commission transfer policies. When 
the number of students desiring admission exceeds the number that can 
be accommodated in a particular professional or specialized program, 
admission will be based on criteria developed by the University to select 
the best qualified students. 

Articulated transfer programs are available at each Maryland community 
college. An articulated transfer program is a list of community college 
courses that best prepare applicants for a particular course of study at the 
University of Maryland at College Park. Applicants who take appropriate 
courses specified in the articulated program and earn acceptable grades 
are guaranteed transfer with no loss of credit. Articulated transfer 
programs help students plan their new programs after changing career 
objectives. Computerized articulation information, called ARTSYS, is 
available at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at the University of 
M aryland at College Park and in the transfer advisor's office at each of the 
community colleges. Applicants can eliminate all doubt concerning transfer 
of courses by following articulated programs. 

General Transfer Information 

Admitted students will receive a preliminary review of transfer credit within 
two weeks after receiving the letter of admission. An official review of 



transfer credit occurs thereafter, with final determination of applicability 
made by an academic advisor/ evaluator in the office of the appropriate 
dean for the major. Generally, college-level courses completed at regionally- 
accredited institutions will transfer, provided that grades of at least "C" are 
earned and the course content is similar in content and scope to work 
offered at College Park. The regional accrediting bodies are: Middle States 
Association of Colleges and Schools; New England Association of Schools 
and Colleges; North Central Association of Colleges and Schools; 
Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges; Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools; and Western Association of Schools and Colleges. 
Up to 60 credits from a community or two-year college may be applied 
towards the degree. Students are required to complete at least their final 
30 credits on the College Park campus to earn a degree. 

Transfer of course work completed at Maryland public colleges and 
universities is covered by the Maryland Higher Education Commission 
(MHEC) transfer policies (see complete text later in this section). College 
Park will accept grades of "D" or better from appropriate course work 
completed at a regionally-accredited Maryland public institution, including 
other institutions in the University of Maryland System. 

The Transfer Credit Center provides articulation information and assistance 
to students and transfer advisors. The Center, a joint effort between the 
Offices of Undergraduate Admissions and Records and Registration, is in 
the process of computerizing and consolidating the transfer credit 
evaluation process. It provides incoming students from domestic secondary 
institutions with information on acceptability of credits and transfer 
equivalencies, subject to adjustment by advisors within the student's 
individual program. Certain courses (e.g., those not appearing or not fully 
elaborated in the sending institution's current catalog) may require 
additional information before evaluation. 

Each college-level course will be evaluated individually, with applicability 
toward major or general education requirements determined by the 
appropriate academic unit. College Park does not transfer blocks of 
courses, such as those completed through the Associate's Degree. See 
the appropriate sections of the catalog for specific general education and 
major requirements. 

Credit will be posted to the College Park record only from official transcripts 
sent from the institution at which the credit was completed. Students who 
have earned credit through Advanced Placement (AP), International 
Baccalaureate, or College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject area 
exams must have scores sent directly from the testing board, even if they 
are already posted on a transcript from another institution.

Statement on Transfer of Course Credit 

UMCP welcomes transfer students and has transfer agreements 
(sometimes referred to as "articulation" agreements) to encourage and aid 
students in their efforts to take appropriate courses prior to transfer. Each 
course is evaluated individually for students seeking to transfer to UMCP. 
Credit is granted for courses that are applicable to a Bachelor of Arts or 
Bachelor of Science degree, and for which a grade of C or above was 
earned. Courses completed at Maryland public two- or four-year institutions 
may transfer with grades of D or above provided that course content is 
appropriate for our academic programs. 

M aximum Number of Transfer Credits Accepted 

UMCP has direct transfer agreements with all Maryland community 
colleges, as well as other junior and community colleges outside of the 
state. UMCP will accept for transfer a maximum of 60 credits from a two- 
year program for courses in which a grade of C or above was earned, and 
which are appropriate to an approved curriculum at this institution. See the 
above paragraph for required course grades. 

M aximum Number of Credits Allowed for Non-traditional Learning 

Students who have acquired college-level learning through work or other 
non-collegiate activities may wish to translate their experience into credits 
at College Park by validation through the national CLEP examination 
(College-Level Examination Program) or credit-by-examination administered 
by academic departments. College Park will accept a maximum of 30 hours 
of credit through examination. 

Minimum Number of Credits Required Through Classroom Instruction in 
the M ajor Field and for the Degree 

UMCP requires a minimum of 120 semester hours of credit for an 
undergraduate degree; some programs require more. Regardless of the 
total number of transfer credits, students must complete at least their last 
30 credits at UMCP. 

Statement on Transfer of General Education Requirements 

As directed by the Maryland Higher Education Commission Transfer Policy, 
transferable courses taken in fulfillment of general education requirements 
at a Maryland Community College will be applied toward College Park's 



CORE requirements. Since College Park requires more general education 
credit than do the Maryland community colleges, additional courses may 
need to be taken to fulfill our lower-division general education program. 
Careful planning with an academic advisor will ensure that students take 
appropriate credit and maximize their credit transfer. The total number of 
general education credits for a Maryland Community College transfer 
student will not exceed that required of native students. 



MARYLAND HIGHER EDUCATION 
COMMISSION TRANSFER POLICIES 

Authorization 

These Student Transfer Policies, as adopted by the Maryland Higher 
Education Commission, will supersede the transfer policies in effect since 
1972, as modified and adopted in 1979. These policies shall be effective 
and applicable to students first enrolling in Maryland public post-secondary 
educational institutions in Fall 1990, and thereafter. 

Applicability of Policies 

These transfer policies and procedures apply to admission, credit transfer, 
program articulation, and related matters for undergraduate students who 
wish to transfer between Maryland public colleges and universities. The 
Maryland Higher Education Commission also recommends them to 
Maryland independent institutions. 

Rationale 

A major premise of the Maryland public higher education system is that a 
student should be able to progress from one segment of higher education 
to another without loss of time or unnecessary duplication of effort. The 
Maryland Higher Education Commission's objective is to ensure that a 
student who intends to complete a baccalaureate degree and who begins 
his or her work at a community college, is able to move towards the 
completion of that degree by transferring to a baccalaureate degree- 
granting institution without loss of credit or unnecessary duplication of 
course content. At the same time, the Commission recognizes that some 
students change their educational objectives as they progress in their 
studies, indeed, sometimes because their studies expose them to new 
ideas and possibilities. These students should also be able to complete 
their general education courses and have them transfer without loss of 
credit. 

One means of accomplishing this objective is through the development of 
recommended transfer programs between two- and four-year institutions. A 
recommended transfer program, developed by careful planning and 
agreement between specific two- and four-year institutions, is that 
recommended sequence of courses which a student takes at a community 
college which will constitute the first two years of a baccalaureate degree 
program at a M aryland public institution of higher education. 

The Maryland Higher Education Commission recognizes that students 
select institutions of higher education for a variety of reasons. These 
policies also recognize that each Maryland public college or university has a 
separate and distinct mission, and that each has the responsibility to 
establish and maintain standards of expectations for courses, programs, 
certificates, and degrees consistent with that mission. Nevertheless, 
effective and efficient transfer of credits between and among these 
institutions must occur within the larger context of the statewide structure 
of baccalaureate and community college education. 

Successful and harmonious articulation depends upon: 

• Firm agreement that the needs of the student should be a primary 
concern in developing articulation procedures, while maintaining 
the integrity of educational programs; 

• The establishment of clear and equitable policies to assure 
optimum accessibility for transfer students with minimal loss of 
credits and minimal duplication of course content; 

• Mechanisms for evaluating and resolving difficulties students may 
encounter in moving from one school to another; 

• Free and continuous communications among institutions; 

• Mutual respect for institutions and their missions; 

• Adaptability, within a context of understanding that changes affect 



Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 9 



not only the institution making changes but also the students and 
institutions impacted bythe changes; 

• Free exchange of data among institutions; and 

• Timely exchange of information relative to students' progress. 

The intended principal benefactor is the student, whose uninterrupted 
progress towards a degree— based on successful academic performance- 
is best served by the open exchange of current information about 
programs, and is best protected by a clear transfer policy pertaining to the 
public segments of higher education in Maryland. 

The State's interests are similarly served through such a policy, which 
results in the optimal use of its higher education resources by reducing the 
costly duplication that results in the needless waste of the valuable time 
and effort of Maryland students, faculty, and administration. 

Institutional interests and missions are also protected by this systematic 
approach, which permits them to incorporate into their academic planning 
more accurate projections about the programmatic backgrounds of 
transferring students. 

In more specific ways this document's purpose is to: 

• Define broad areas of agreement among the public two-year and 
four-year institutions of higher education pertaining to facilitating 
the transfer of students within these segments; 

• Provide a mechanism for continuous evaluation of programs, 
policies, procedures, and relationships affecting transfer of 
students; 

• Provide such revisions as are needed to promote the academic 
success and general well-being of the transfer student; 

• Provide a system of appeals beginning on the campus level to 
resolve difficulties that students experience in transfer. 

While policies and procedures can be established which facilitate the 
transfer of students, it is the responsibility of the student, as the principal 
in the process, to know and follow the procedures defined. 

I. Policies 

The fair and equal treatment of "native" and "transfer" students is the 
fundamental principle of these policies. 

A. Admission 

1. Transfer with the Associate degree or 56 or more credits 

a. Students who have completed the Associate degree or students 
who have completed 56 semester hours of credit with a cumulative 
grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher on a scale of 4.0, in 
college and university parallel courses, shall not be denied direct 
transfer to an institution. (Only the last grade received in a course 
repeated by the student shall be used in computing a cumulative 
grade point average.) 

If the number of students seeking admission exceeds the number 
that can be accommodated in a particular professional or 
specialized program, or certain circumstances exist which limit the 
size of an upper division program or the total enrollment, 
admission decisions will be based on criteria developed and 
published by the receiving institution, providing fair and equal 
treatment for native and transfer students. 

b. Courses taken at a Maryland community college as part of a 
recommended transfer program oriented toward a baccalaureate 
degree shall be applicable to related programs at a Maryland public 
institution granting the baccalaureate degree. 

c. The determination of the major program requirements for a 
baccalaureate degree, including courses in the major taken in the 
lower division, shall be the responsibility of the faculty of the 
institution awarding the degree. The receiving institution may set 
major requirements which may fulfill general education 
requirements simultaneously. However, in developing its lower 
division course work, the degree-granting institution would be 
expected to systematically exchange information with the 
community college to assure the transferability of credits into that 



program. 

d. If the student has attended more than one institution, the 
cumulative GPA for admission purposes will be computed on 
grades received in courses at all institutions attended. 

2. Transfer Without an Associate Degree and fewer than 56 credit 
hours 

a. Students from Maryland community colleges who were 
admissible to the four-year institution as high school seniors, 
and who have attained a cumulative 2.0 average in college/ 
university parallel courses shall be eligible for transfer to the 
institution regardless of the number of credits completed. 

b. Students who were not admissible as high school seniors, but 
who have earned sufficient credits to be classified bythe 
receiving institution as sophomores, must meet the stated 
admission criteria of the receiving institution. Such 
requirements for admission may vary by program, according to 
criteria developed and published by the receiving institution. 
Such admission criteria shall provide for equal access for native 
and transfer students. 

c. If the student has attended more than one institution, the 
cumulative GPA for admission purposes will be computed on 
grades received in courses at all institutions attended. 

B. Transfer of general education. 

1. Students transferring with the Associate degree shall have met 
the lower level general education requirements at the receiving 
institution. In cases where the general education requirements at 
the receiving institution exceed those of the sending institution, 
the transfer student will be required to take no more than the 
same number of lower division general education credits than 
those required of the native student. The additional courses 
should be according to the distribution requirements of the 
receiving school. 

2. Students transferring without an Associate degree, who have 
satisfied all of the lower-level general education requirements of 
the sending institution, shall have met the lower level general 
education requirements at the receiving institution. In cases where 
the general education requirements at the receiving institution 
exceed those of the sending institution, the transfer student will 
be required to take no more than the same number of lower 
division general education credits than those required of the 
native student. The additional courses should be according to the 
distribution required bythe receiving institution. 

3. Students transferring without an Associate degree who have 
completed only a portion of the lower-level general education 
requirements at the sending institution will need to take only the 
balance of the general education courses, according to the 
distribution required bythe receiving institution. 

4. Transferable courses defined as meeting the general education 
requirements at the sending institution shall be applicable to the 
general education requirements of the receiving institution and 
shall be assigned a specific general education area designation at 
the receiving institution. 

5. This assumes that the sending institution will identify on the 
transcript all general education credits earned by the student at 
that institution and whether the student has satisfied the general 
education requirements of the sending institution. 

C. Credit Transferability: 

1. Traditional Credit 

a. Credit earned at any public institution in Maryland shall be 
transferable to any other public institution provided: 

• the credit is from a college or university parallel course or 
program; 

• the grades in the block of courses transferred average 2.0 or 
higher; and 

• the acceptance of the credit is consistent with the policies of 
the receiving institution governing students following the 



10 Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 



same program. (For example, if a "native" student's "D" grade in 
a specific course is acceptable in a program, then a grade of "D" 
earned by a transfer student in the same course is also 
acceptable in the same program.) 

b. Credit earned in or transferred from a community college 
normally shall be limited to half the baccalaureate degree 
program requirement, but in no case more than 70 credits, and 
to the first two years of the undergraduate educational 
experience. 

2. Non-Traditional Credit 

a. The assignment of credit for AP, CLEP, or other nationally 
recognized, standardized examination scores presented by 
transfer students will be determined according to the same 
regulations that apply to native students in the receiving 
institution, and such assignment must be consistent with the 
State minimum requirements. 

b. Transfer of credit from the following areas shall be consistent 
with the State minimum standards and shall be evaluated by the 
receiving institution on a course-by-course basis: 

• technical courses from career programs; 

• course credit awarded through articulation agreements with 
other segments or agencies; 

• credit awarded for clinical practice or cooperative education 
experiences; and 

•credit awarded for life and work experiences. 

The basis for the awarding of the credit shall be indicated on the 
student's transcript. 

c. The baccalaureate degree granting institution shall inform 
transfer students of the procedures through which coursework for 
which there is no clear equivalency can be validated, such as 
ACE recommendations, portfolio assessment, credit through 
challenge, examinations and satisfactory completion of the next 
course in sequence in the academic area. 

d.The baccalaureate degree-granting institution shall use validation 
procedures when a transferring student successfully completes a 
course at the lower division level which the degree-granting 
institution offers at the upper division level, and once validated, 
the credits earned for the course shall be substituted for the 
upper division course. 

D. Program Articulation: 

Recommended transfer programs will be developed through 
consultation between the sending and receiving institutions. As such, 
each recommended transfer program represents an agreement 
between the two institutions that allow students aspiring to the 
baccalaureate degree to plan their programs. These programs will 
constitute freshman/ sophomore level casework to be taken at the 
community college in fulfillment of the receiving institution's lower 
division coursework requirement. 

II. Policies to Promote the Academic Success and General Well-Being of 
Transfer Students 

A. Bythe Sending Institutions: 

1. Students who enroll at Maryland community colleges shall be 
encouraged to complete the Associate degree or to complete 56 
hours in a recommended transfer program which includes both 
general education courses and courses applicable toward the 
program at the receiving institution. 

2. Community college students are encouraged to choose as early as 
possible the institution and program into which they expect to 
transfer. 

3. Sending institutions shall provide to community college students 
information about the specific transferability of courses at four-year 

colleges. 

4. Information about transfer students who are capable of honors 



work or independent study shall be transmitted to the receiving institution. 

5. The sending institution should promptly supply the receiving 
institution with all the required documents provided the student 
has met all requirements of the sending institution for transfer. 

B. Bythe Receiving Institutions: 

1. Admission requirements and curriculum prerequisites shall be 
stated explicitly in institutional publications. 

2. Transfer students from newly established public colleges which are 
functioning with the approval of the Maryland Higher Education 
Commission shall be admitted on the same basis as applicants 
from regionally accredited colleges. 

3. The receiving institution shall evaluate the transcripts of degree 
seeking transfer students as expeditiously as possible, and shall 
notify students of the results no later than at the completion of the 
students' first semester of enrollment at the receiving institution. 
Students shall be informed both of which courses are acceptable 
for transfer credit and which of those are applicable to the 
student's intended program of study. 

4. Transfer students shall be given the option of satisfying 
institutional graduation requirements which were in effect at the 
receiving institution at the time they enrolled as freshmen at the 
sending institution. In the case of major requirements, the transfer 
student has the option of satisfying the major requirements in 
effect at the time when the student was identifiable as pursuing 
the recommended transfer program at the sending institution. 
These conditions are applicable to the student who has been 
continuously enrolled at the community college by completing a 
minimum of 12 hours within the calendar year. 

III. Maintaining Programmatic Currency, Student Appeals, and Periodic 
Review 

A. Programmatic Currency: 

1. Receiving institutions shall provide to the community college 
current and accurate information on recommended transfer 
programs and the transferability status of courses. Community 
college students shall have access to this information. 

2. Recommended transfer programs will be developed with each 
community college whenever new baccalaureate programs are 
approved bythe degree-granting institution. 

3. When considering curricular changes, institutions shall notify each 
other of the proposed changes that might affect transfer students. 
An appropriate mechanism shall be created to ensure that both 
two and four-year public colleges provide input or comments to the 
institution proposing the change. Sufficient lead time shall be 
provided to affect the change with minimum disruption. Transfer 
students shall not be required to repeat equivalent coursework 
successfully completed at the community college. 

B. Appeal Process: 

1. Notification of denial of transfer credit bythe receiving institution 

A receiving institution must inform a transfer student in writing of 
the denial of transfer credit no later than mid-semester of the 
transfer student's first semester provided that all official 
transcripts have ben received at least 15 working days before mid- 
semester. If transcripts are submitted after 15 working days before 
mid-semester of the student's first semester, the receiving 
institution must inform the student of credit denied within 20 
working days of receipt of the official transcript. 

A statement of the student's right to appeal the denial and a 
notification that this appeal process is available in the institution's 
catalog shall accompany the notification of denial of transfer credit. 

2. Student appeal to receiving institution 

If a student believes she/ he has been denied transfer credits in 
violation of the State Student Transfer Policy, she/he must initiate 
an appeal by contacting the receiving institution's Transfer 
Coordinator or other responsible official of the receiving institution 
within 20 working days (4 weeks) of receiving notice of the denial 



Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 11 



of credit. The receiving institution shall inform the student of this time 
limitation at the same time as the transfer of credit is denied. 

3. Response by receiving institution 

The receiving institution must respond to the student appeal within 
10 working days (2 weeks). The institution may either grant or deny 
the appeal. The institution's reasons for denying an appeal must be 
conveyed to the student in written form. 

4. Appeal to sending institution 

If the student has been denied transfer credit after an appeal to the 
receiving institution, the student may request the sending 
institution to intercede on his/ her behalf by contacting the Transfer 
Coordinator of the sending institution. The student must make this 
appeal to the sending institution within 10 working days (2 weeks) 
of having received the decision of the receiving institution. 

5. Consultation between sending and receiving institutions 

Representatives of the two institutions shall have 15 working days 
(3 weeks) to resolve the issues involved in the appeal. The sending 
institution will inform the student of the result of the consultation. 

6. Appeal to the Student Transfer Advisory Committee 

If the transfer of credit is still denied after consultations between 
the sending and receiving institutions, and the sending institution 
considers the student's appeal to have sufficient merit, the sending 
institution may appeal in writing to the Secretary of Higher 
Education to request that the Student Transfer Advisory Committee 
review the student's appeal and make a ruling on the merit of the 
appeal. The sending institution must make this appeal to the 
Secretary within 10 working days (2 weeks) of having informed the 
student of the result of the consultation between the two 
institutions. 

In the absence of an appeal to the Secretary by the sending 
institution, if the credit is still denied, the student may appeal in 
writing to the Secretary to request that the Student Transfer 
Advisory Committee review the student's appeal and make a ruling 
on the merit of the appeal. The student must make this appeal to 
the Secretary within 10 working days (2 weeks) of either being 
informed of the result of the consultation between the two 
institutions or, if the student receives no notification, within 10 
working days (2 weeks) of the expiration of the time period of the 
sending institution's right to appeal. 

7. Consideration and action by the Student Transfer Advisory 
Committee 

The Student Transfer Advisory Committee shall receive relevant 
documentation, opinions, and interpretations in writing from the 
sending and receiving institutions and from the student at its next 
regularly scheduled meeting after the Secretary has received an 
appeal from a sending institution or from a student. 

The Committee will hold a hearing if it deems a hearing to be 
necessary to act upon the appeal. 

8. Advisory opinion of the Secretary 

After receiving testimony on the merits of the appeal from the 
sending and receiving institutions, the Student Transfer Advisory 
Committee shall render an advisory opinion on the merits of the 
appeal to the Secretary of Higher Education. The Secretary will then 
convey the opinion of the Student Transfer Advisory Committee to 
the appropriate segmental chief executive for disposition. 

C. Periodic Review: 

l.The progress of students who transfer from two-year and four-year 
institutions within the State shall be reported annually by the 
receiving institution to each community college and to the Secretary 
of the Maryland Commission of Higher Education. Such information 
shall include longitudinal reports on the subsequent academic 
success of enrolled transfer students, including graduation rates, 
by major subject areas. Comparable information on the progress of 
native students shall be included. 



2. Each public institution of higher education shall designate a 
Transfer Coordinator, who serves as a resource person to transfer 
students at either the sending or receiving campus, and who is 
responsible for overseeing the application of the policies this plan. 
The Transfer Coordinator shall also assist in interpreting transfer 
policies to the individual student and to the institution. 

3. The Maryland Higher Education Commission shall establish a 
permanent Transfer Advisory Committee that meets regularly to 
review transfer issues and recommend policy changes as needed. 
The committee shall also arbitrate disagreements as necessary 
and receive written appeals as described in the "student appeals" 
section above. 

4. The Transfer Advisory Committee shall review these transfer 
policies at least every five years and recommend changes as 
necessary.

Transfer from University of M aryland System Institutions 

Students who attend other University of Maryland System (UMS) degree- 
granting institutions will have general education credits transferred within 
the system under a new 1994 agreement. The 11 UMS degree-granting 
institutions are: Bowie State University, Coppin State University, Frostburg 
State University, Salisbury State University, Towson State University, 
University of Baltimore, University of Maryland at Baltimore, University of 
Maryland Baltimore County, University of Maryland at College Park, 
University of Maryland Eastern Shore, and University of Maryland University 
College. 

Under this agreement, students who have completed the general education 
sequence at a UMS degree-granting institution will have completed the 
general education sequence at College Park. Students who have not 
completed the general education sequence at a UMS degree-granting 
institution before transfer will be required to complete College Park's 
general education sequence. Any course taken to fulfill general education 
at the previous institution will be applied to College Park's sequence. In 
either case, College Park (the receiving institution) may require up to 12 
credits of general education requirements beyond those which the student 
transfers to this institution. Please contact your College Park advising 
college or the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for further information.

FEES, EXPENSES, AND FINANCIAL AID 



FEES AND EXPENSES 

Student Accounts Office 

1135 Lee Building, 405-9041 and 403-0500 

Tuition and fees for the University of Maryland at College Park are listed 
below. The University requires that all deposits and fees be paid by stated 
deadlines, or penalties must be imposed. Many potential administrative 
difficulties can be avoided if students carefully follow published procedures 
and notify the appropriate office(s) of any changes that might affect their 
financial obligation to the University. This includes notifying the Bursar's 
Office of changes of address, so that mail affecting the student's financial 
relationship with the University will not be delayed or returned. 

College Park sponsors a deferred-payment plan through Tuition 
Management System (TMS). Information regarding these plans is available 
by calling 1 (800)7224867. 

All charges incurred during a semester are payable immediately. Returning 
students will not be permitted to complete registration until all financial 
obligations to the University, including library fines, parking violations, and 
other penalty fees and service charges, are paid in full. 

Payment for past due balances and current semester fees is due on or 
before the first day of classes. Students who register in advance must pay 
their bills in full prior to the general registration period. Students who 
register after the initial registration period are required to make full 
payment by due date indicated to avoid cancellation of their enrollment and 
loss of their classroom seats to other students. 

Although the University regularly mails bills to students, it cannot assume 
responsibility for their receipt. Students are reminded that it is their 
responsibility to notify the University of any change in address, or to correct 
an address. If a student bill is not received on or before the beginning of 
each semester, it is the student's responsibility to obtain a copy of the bill 
from the Student Accounts Office, 1135 Lee Building, Monday through 
Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

All checks or money orders should be made payable to the University of 
Maryland for the exact amount due. Student name and student social 
security number should be written on the front side of the check. 
University grants and scholarships will be posted to the student's account. 
However, the first bill mailed prior to the beginning of each semester may 
not include these deductions. 

Students are urged to check their residence hall and dining service 
agreements for procedures for cancellation of reservations, and for 
deadlines for receiving refunds of deposits. Refunds cannot be made after 
these deadlines, even if the student decides not to attend the University of 
Maryland at College Park. 

Students will incur a late payment fee in the event of failure to pay a 
balance on their student account by its due date. A late payment fee of 
$10.00 or 5%, whichever is higher, will be assessed in addition to payment 
for the total past due amount. An additional 1.5% late fee will be charged 
monthly if the account is not settled. 

Students who fail to pay the indebtedness during the semester in which 
delinquency occurs will be ineligible to advance register for subsequent 
semesters until the debt and the penalty fees are cleared. 

In the event of actual registration for a subsequent semester by a 
delinquent student who has not settled his or her student account prior to 
that semester, such registration will be canceled and no credit will be 



earned for the semester. 

The state has established, under legislative mandate, a Central Collections 
Unit (CCU) within the Department of Budget and Fiscal Planning. The 
University is required by state law to refer all delinquent accounts to the 
State Collections Unit. Please note that Maryland law allows the Central 
Collections Unit to intercept state income tax refunds for individuals with 
delinquent accounts, and that CCU is authorized to notify the National 
Credit Bureau of the delinquency at the time the account is referred to it for 
collection. 

All accounts due from students, faculty, staff, non-students, etc., are 
included within these guidelines. 

State Central Collection Unit costs incurred in collecting delinquent 
accounts will be charged to the student. The minimum collection fee is 17% 
plus attorney and/ or court costs. 

No degrees, diplomas, certificates, or transcripts of records will be issued 
to students who have not made satisfactory settlement of their accounts. 

An Important Fee Notice: Although changes in fees and charges ordinarily 
will be announced in advance, the University reserves the right to make 
such changes without prior announcement. 

Note: Additional Information on Student Financial Obligations, Disclosure of 
Information, Delinquent Accounts, and Special Fees, can be found in the 
"Policy Statement" elsewhere in this catalog. 

Payment of Fees 

All checks, money orders, or postal notes should be made payable to the 
University of Maryland. The student's Social Security number must be 
written on the front of the check. VISA, MasterCard, and Discover credit 
cards are accepted.

classes entitles students to full credit of semester tuition. 

Undergraduate students withdrawing from the University will be credited for 
tuition and fees in accordance with the following schedule: 



Prior to 1st day of classes 
1st 10 days of classes 
3rd week 
4th week 
5 th week 
After 5th week 



100% 
80% 
60% 
40% 
20% 
No Refund 



Note: 



First-semester freshmen who receive Title IV aid and who withdraw 
will receive a refund in accordance with federal regulations. 



Prior to the first day of classes, if full-time undergraduate students drop a 
course or courses, thereby changing the total number of credits for which 
they are preregistered to 11 or fewer, charges for the semester will be 
assessed on the basis of the per-credit-hour fee for part-time students. 
However, if students later add a course or courses thereby changing the 
total number of credits for which they are registered to 12 or more, they will 
be billed for the difference between per-credit-hour fees paid and the 
general fees for full-time undergraduates. 

If during the first five days of classes full-time undergraduates drop a 
course or courses thereby changing the total number of credits for which 
they are registered to 11 or fewer, charges for the semester will be 
assessed on the basis of part-time charges plus 20% of the difference 
between the full-time fees and appropriate part-time charges. After the first 
five days of classes, there is no refund for changing from full-time to part- 
time status. 

Students who register as part-time undergraduate students and apply for a 
refund for courses dropped during the first week of classes will be given a 
refund. No refund will be made for courses dropped thereafter. 

No part of the charges for room and board is refundable except when 
students officially withdraw from the University or when they are given 
permission by the appropriate officials of the University to move from the 
residence halls and/ or to discontinue dining hall privileges. In these cases, 
the room refund will be computed by multiplying the number of periods 
remaining by the pro rata weekly rate after adjusting for a service charge. 
Refunds to students having full board contracts will be calculated in a 
similar manner. No room and/or board refunds will be made after the 
fourteenth week of the semester. Students are reminded that reservations 
for room and board must be canceled by the date published in the 
residence hall and dining services agreement(s). 

In computing refunds to students who have received the benefit of 
scholarships and loans from university funds, the computation will be made 
to return the maximum amount to the scholarship and loan accounts 
without loss to the University. 

MILITARY CALL-UP 

Students who must withdraw from the University as a result of being called 
for military duty should contact the Office of Records and Registration 
immediately, and should have available a copy of their orders. The 
University of Maryland at College Park has procedures to ensure an orderly 
process of separation for these students. 

FINANCIAL AID 

Office of Student Financial A id 
0102 Lee Building, 314-8313 

Applying for financial aid, receiving financial aid, and keeping financial aid 
do not happen automatically. Students have to make it happen! 



The Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) administers all types of federal, 
state, and institutional financial assistance programs, and, in cooperation 
with other university offices, participates in the awarding of scholarships to 
deserving students. The primary responsibility for financing attendance at 
the University of Maryland at College Park lies with students and families. 
Scholarships, grants, loans, and work -study positions are awarded on the 
basis of academic ability and/ or financial need as determined by a federal 
needs analysis system. It is OSFA's intent to provide assistance to 
students who might not otherwise be able to pursue college studies due to 
lack of finances. 

Financial aid funds are limited; therefore, all new, readmitted, and returning 
students must follow these steps to receive priority consideration for 
financial aid: 

1. Submit admissions applications and all necessary supporting 
documents to the Office of Admission by the appropriate deadlines. 

2. Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) after 
January 1. FAFSAs are available from OSFA. A new FAFSA is required 
for each academic year of the student's enrollment. 

New students should not wait to be admitted before filing the FAFSA. 
A financial aid application has no bearing on a student's admission 
application. However, students will not receive final consideration for 
aid until they are admitted to a degree program. 

3. Mail the form to the Federal Student Aid Programs application 
processor no later than February 7, so that it is received by the 
processor by February 15. Income for the previous year may be 
estimated initially, and corrected later on the Student Aid Report. 

Applications received after February 15 will be reviewed after on-time 
applications in order of receipt as long as funds are available. All transfer 
students and new graduate students must provide a financial aid transcript 
from each post-secondary school attended, whether aid was received or 
not. 

General Regulations Applicable to All Forms of Aid 

Full-Time Status. For most types of aid, students must attempt at least 12 
credit hours through schedule adjustment each semester in order to 
receive the full financial aid award. Please refer to the standards of 
Satisfactory Academic Progress when considering dropping below 12 credit 
hours for any given semester. 

Citizenship Status. Students must be United States citizens or eligible non- 
citizens in order to be eligible for federal, state, or university financial 
assistance. 

Default/ Owe Refund: To receive federal financial aid, students cannot be 
in default on an educational loan, nor can they owe any refund on a Pell 
Grant or Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) previously 
awarded at any post-secondary institution. 

Degree Seeking: To receive federal financial aid, students must be working 
toward a degree or certificate. Students must be admitted to the University 
as "degree-seeking." 

Satisfactory Progress: To receive federal financial aid, students must be 
making satisfactory progress toward a degree or certificate according to the 
Standards for Satisfactory Academic Progress published in the Schedule of 
Classes. 

Financial Aid Transcripts: Any student who has attended another post- 
secondary institution must submit a financial aid transcript regardless of 
whether he or she received financial assistance. 

Selective Service: To receive federal financial aid, students must be 
registered with Selective Service if they are male, at least 18 years old and 
born after December 31, 1959, unless they are not required to be 
registered. Compliance with the registration requirement will be verified by 
the federal government. The names of those students whose status cannot 
be verified will be referred to the U.S. Department of Justice for possible 
prosecution. 

Receiving a Non-University Award: If a student receives assistance 
(scholarship or loan) from a non-university source, the University may 
reduce the financial aid awarded by the University. It is the student's 
responsibility to notify the Office of Student Financial Aid of all outside 
awards. 



lb Fees, Expenses, and Financial Aid 



Change in Financial Situation: It is the student's responsibility to notify 
the Office of Student Financial Aid of any changes to his or her financial 
situation during the year. 

Reapplication Requirement: No form of assistance is automatically 
renewed from year to year. All students requesting aid must reapply by 
submitting a new FAFSA annually. Such reapplication must indicate 
continued financial need as well as Satisfactory Academic Progress. 

Award Policy: Financial aid is normally a combination of grants, loans, and 
employment. The financial aid "package" is determined by the availability 
of the various types of financial aid and the individual circumstances of the 
students. It is not necessary to make any special application for university 
grants. The Office of Student Financial Aid will determine awards which 
best fit the needs and qualifications of the candidates. 

Estimating Educational Cost 

A budget of average educational costs is used in determining how much 
aid a student is awarded during the academic year. The typical budget for 
an undergraduate at the University of Maryland at College Park for the 
1994-95 academic year was: 



out-of-state: 



Dependent Student Living 


on Campus 


Tuition and Fees 


in-state: 


$3,480 


$9,284 






Room 




2,899 


Board 




2,247 


Incidentals 




1,596 


Books 




550 


Transportation 




530 


TOTAL 




$11,302 


$17,106 







Notes: 1. The above budget is subject to change for the 1995-96 
academic year. 
2. To determine the 1995-96 costs for tuition and fees, room, and 
board, please contact the Office of the Bursar. 

MERIT-BASED FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 

Scholarships 

Several scholarships are available to gifted students at UMCP. Two types 
of scholarships are available: those based solely on academic or creative 
talent (merit-based), and those based on financial need as well as 
academic or creative talent (need-based). The eligibility criteria for the 
different scholarships vary, and are listed below. For more information on 
these programs, students are encouraged to contact the office or 
department responsible for selecting the recipients. Please see the list of 
departmental scholarships at the end of this chapter. 

Banneker-Key Scholarship: The University of Maryland at College Park 
seeks to identify and select some of the brightest high school seniors in 
the nation to continue their education as Banneker-Key Scholars. Students 
selected for this prestigious award will receive full financial support for four 
years, which covers tuition, room, board, and mandatory fees. They will 
also be admitted to the University Honors Program, and will be afforded 
many other opportunities for participation in intellectual enrichment 
programs. Students may nominate themselves for this award, or high 
school guidance counselors may make Banneker-Key Scholar nominations. 
Applicants must submit an admission application, official transcript, and 
SAT scores to the Undergraduate Admission Office by December 1 for the 
following academic year. Selection is based upon academic achievement 
plus extracurricular activities, awards and honors, and an essay. 
Semifinalists are given a personal interview. Factors such as a candidate's 
involvement in community service, particular talent or skill, leadership, and 
character all play a part in the final awards. Contact the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions. 

Regents Scholars Program: The Regents Scholars Program recognizes the 
extraordinary achievement of outstanding freshmen students. New awards 
are made each year in the amount of full tuition, room, board, and 
mandatory fees. In addition, winners receive a $1,000 stipend each 
academic year. Recipients are automatically admitted to the University 
Honors Program. A select number of the top high school scholars in the 
nation will be interviewed for this most prestigious award. An admission 
application, official transcript, and SAT scores must be submitted to the 
Undergraduate Admission Office by December 1 to apply for the Regents 
Scholars Program for the following academic year. Students may nominate 



themselves, or high school guidance counselors may make Regents 
Scholar nominations. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. 

National Merit and National Achievement Scholarships: The University of 
Maryland at College Park is a sponsor in the National Merit and National 
Achievement Scholarship competitions. The University offers scholarships 
ranging from $750 to $2,000 to finalists who indicate College Park as their 
first-choice institution. To qualify, students must submit a completed UMCP 
Admissions application, official transcript, and SAT scores no later than 
December 1. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. 

President's Scholarship: This award provides talented undergraduate 
students with partial tuition support for four years. It is offered to incoming 
first-time students. Students awarded this scholarship are invited to 
participate in the President's Colloquium and either the College Park 
Scholars or University Honors Program (depending upon their academic 
qualifications and interest). There is no separate application for the 
President's Scholarship. Students are selected through the admission 
process with primary consideration given to academic performance in high 
school (e.g., high school courses and achievement) and standardized test 
scores (i.e., SAT and/ or ACT). For full consideration, students must submit 
their completed application for admission by December 1. Contact the 
Office of Undergraduate Admissions. 

Weinberg Regents Scholarship: The Board of Regents has designated the 
Weinberg Regents Scholarship to be awarded to a Maryland community 
college transfer student in order to continue the commitment to 
outstanding students. In order to be selected for this award, a student 
must have exceptional qualifications, including achievement of a 4.0 grade 
point average, completion of the Associate of Arts degree at a Maryland 
community college, evidence of creative and intellectual activities or 
scholarly potential, and have been admitted to one of the University of 
Maryland System institutions. The deadline for submitting the candidate's 
application material is June 15. The winner may receive the scholarship for 
two years, totalling no more than four semesters including summer 
sessions. For information, contact the University of Maryland System 
Administration at 853-3692. 

Transfer Merit Scholarship: These awards are available to outstanding 
students transferring from Maryland community colleges. The awards cover 
in-state tuition and mandatory fees for two years of undergraduate study. 
To be eligible for consideration, students must have an overall grade point 
average of 3.5 for all college work attempted, and must have completed an 
Associate of Arts degree or the entire first two years of courses for the 
major in which the student expects to enroll. Candidate nomination forms 
are available in late December from the UMCP Undergraduate Admissions 
Office or from community college advisors. The deadline for receipt of the 
application, official transcripts, and scholarship materials is March 16. 
Contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. 

Honors Scholarship: University, Departmental, and College Honors 
students already attending UMCP may have an opportunity to apply for one 
of these $500 awards. Financial need is not a criterion for selection. 
Regents, and Banneker-Key recipients are not eligible for Honors 
Scholarships. Scholarships are renewable, if the recipient submits a written 
application and continues to meet the criteria. To be eligible for 
consideration, students must have a minimum 3.2 cumulative grade point 
average and be achieving satisfactory progress toward the completion of 
requirements for an Honors citation or for a Departmental or College 
Honors Program. In addition, the applicants must submit an essay on their 
academic goals and plans for acheiving them. Contact the University 
Honors Program. 

Full University Scholarship: The Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) 
designed the Full University Scholarship Program to recruit financially 
needy, academically talented entering freshmen to UMCP. These four-year 
awards cover tuition, mandatory fees, room, and board. To be eligible for 
consideration, a student must be an incoming freshman with a cumulative 
grade point average of 3.5 or above, combined SAT scores of 1100 or 
higher, and demonstrate need as determined by OSFA via the Free 
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Approximately 15 full 
scholarships are awarded each year. Candidates will be selected from 
those who have been admitted to UMCP and have a processed FAFSA by 
February 15. Contact the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

UMCP Departmental Scholarships: Some Colleges and Departments at 
UMCP offer a variety of merit scholarships. Most departmental scholarships 
require a student to have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and be 
registered for a minimum of 12 credits per semester. For information 
regarding departmental scholarships, please contact the appropriate 
College or Department. 



Fees, Expenses, and Financial Aid 17 



Maryland State Scholarships: The Maryland State Scholarship 
Administration (MSSA), located in Annapolis, awards both need- and merit- 
based scholarships to Maryland residents. There are currently 16 different 
programs available, including the Guaranteed Access Grant, Educational 
Assistance Grant, the Senatorial Scholarship, the House of Delegates 
Scholarship, and the Distinguished Scholar Award. You may obtain more 
information about these and other awards by calling MSSA at (410) 974- 
5370. All Maryland residents are expected to apply for State Scholarship 
assistance. Initial application for many of the awards is made through the 
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Please note that filing the 
FAFSAis sufficient to apply for most Maryland State Scholarships at UMCP, 
although some may require additional application forms. The application 
deadline for most programs is March 1. FAFSAs are available from the 
UMCP Office of Student Financial Aid. 

Scholarships from Other States: Several states have reciprocal 
agreements with the State of Maryland. Students who are residents of 
these states may receive funds for study in eligible post-secondary 
institutions in Maryland. Interested students should contact their state 
scholarship agencies for information. 

Scholarship Searches: A broad range of scholarships are available from 
private sources. Usually, these awards are not as well publicized as the 
state and university programs. Therefore, students should conduct a 
scholarship search to locate such sources. UMCP offers two services to 
students to aid them in their searches. The Office of Student Financial Aid 
Scholarship Match is a free service available to students with an overall 
grade point average of 3.0 or above. This personalized program matches 
donors with potential scholarship recipients. The applications are 
maintained in an active file for the entire academic year and must be 
renewed annually. Applications become available at the Office of Student 
Financial Aid in January for the upcoming academic year. CASHE (College 
Aid Sources for Higher Education) is a computerized financial aid and 
scholarship search through which students may learn about possible 
sources of financial support from thousands of resources listed. The 
program matches the student with resources that are keyed to particular 
characteristics (gender, ethnic background, major, geographic region, etc). 
When students receive their list, it is their responsibility to contact the 
sources provided for additional information and/ or applications. The 
service is available to UMCP students and affiliates for $5 and to all others 
for $15. For applications for these two search services, contact the Office 
of Student Financial Aid at 314-8313. 

Need-Based Financial Assistance 

Grants 

The Office of Student Financial Aid administers several grant programs for 
undergraduate students. Awards are made based on financial need as 
determined by the FAFSA. Grants do not have to be repaid. 

Federal Pell Grant: This grant provides a "foundation" of financial aid, to 
which aid from other sources may be added. Only undergraduate students 
(those who have not already completed a bachelor's degree) may receive a 
Federal Pell Grant. All undergraduates will be considered for this grant 
regardless of when their applications were received. Students may receive 
the Federal Pell Grant for less than full-time attendance, although the 
award will be pro-rated based on the number of credits attempted. Awards 
range from $400 to $2,340. 

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG): The FSEOG 
is awarded to full-time undergraduates with exceptional need. Priority is 
given to Federal Pell Grant recipients. To be considered for FSEOG, you 
must meet OSFA's priority application deadline of February 15. The 
minimum award is $200 with the maximum award dependent upon the 
amount of FSEOG funds which UMCP receives from the government. The 
funds are divided among as many deserving students as possible. 

Institutional Grants: UMCP awards grant money to full-time students who 
demonstrate financial need and who meet OSFA's priority application 
deadline of February 15. There are three funds from which money is 
awarded, and OSFA selects recipients for the awards based on which grant 
best fits their qualifications. The Frederick Douglass Grant is awarded to 
African-American undergraduates. The University Grant is awarded to 
undergraduates who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or 
higher. The UMCP Grant may be awarded to any undergraduate. Award 
amounts for these three programs range from $100 to $2,500, depending 
upon the University's funding. 



Self-Help 

Financial aid may be awarded in the form of an opportunity to obtain 
assistance, rather than as an outright monetary gift. Such aid programs are 
called "self-help," and take the form of employment programs and student 
loans. Most of these programs are awarded based on need as determined 
by the FAFSA. 

Federal Work -Study: The Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program provides 
students the opportunity to earn money to meet their educational and 
personal expenses through the semester. Money earned from a FWS job 
does not have to be paid back. To be considered for FWS, students must 
meet OSFA's priority application deadline of February 15. This award is 
need-based, and may range from $800 to $2,500. Pay rates depend on the 
level of complexity of the work, but will be at least the federal minimum 
wage. FWS employees receive a paycheck every other week for the hours 
worked, like all university employees. Most FWS jobs are on campus, 
though there are opportunities for FWS students to work off campus at 
private non-profit organizations, through the Community Service Program. 
The number of hours students may work is limited to 20 per week while 
school is in session, or 40 per week during vacations and summer. 

Workships: Through a workship, funds are advanced to the student at the 
beginning of the semester when he or she completes a contract stating the 
number of hours to be worked during that semester. This program differs 
from Federal Work-Study in that the student receives all the "wages" up 
front to help cover the University bill, and so does not receive bi-weekly 
paychecks. Several offices and departments on campus including the 
Office of the Bursar, Shuttle UM, Residential Facilities, and Dining Services, 
now offer workships. Students should contact the department or office they 
are interested in working for, or, if they also wish to apply for other forms of 
aid, follow the standard FAFSA application procedures. 

Federal Perkins Loan: This is a low interest rate (5%) loan for students with 
exceptional financial need. This is a loan borrowed from the school, and it 
must be paid back. To be eligible, students must meet OSFA's priority 
application deadline of February 15. The amount of the award will depend 
upon the student's need, and may range from $100 to $1,200. New 
borrowers (those who first receive a Federal Perkins Loan after July 1, 
1988) have a grace period of nine months after graduating or leaving 
school before they must begin repaying their Federal Perkins Loans. 
Interest will begin accruing at the time of repayment. Students are not 
responsible for paying the interest on the loan while they are attending 
school. 

William D. Ford Federal Direct Stafford/ Ford Loan: This is a low-interest- 
rate loan for students who attend at least half-time. Application is made 
through the school financial aid office via the FAFSA. Eligibility for this loan 
is based on need, not credit history. This loan is borrowed by the student, 
and must be paid back by the student. 

There are two types of Federal Direct Stafford/ Ford Loans, subsidized and 
unsubsidized. The student must demonstrate financial need to receive a 
subsidized loan, and he or she is not required to pay the interest on it while 
in school. Students who do not demonstrate financial need, or who do not 
demonstrate sufficient need to borrow a full subsidized loan, may borrow a 
Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. If a student borrows an unsubsidized 
loan, he or she will be responsible for paying the interest which accrues 
during school attendance. The FAFSA must be completed by all students 
who wish to apply for either type of Federal Direct Stafford/ Ford Loan. The 
interest rate for new borrowers who take out their first Federal Stafford 
Loan on or after July 1, 1994, is variable, capped at 8.25%. The interest 
rate through June 30, 1995, is 7.43%. Repayment of the loan will begin at 
the end of the six-month grace period after graduation or dropping below 
half-time status. 

Maximum loan amounts are as follows: $2,625 per year for first-year 
undergraduates, $3,500 per year for second-year undergraduates, and 
$5,500 per year for third-, fourth-, or fifth-year undergraduates. If the 
student does not demonstrate need to borrow the maximum for his or her 
year in school through the subsidized Federal Stafford Loan, he or she may 
borrow the difference in a Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. For 
instance, if you are a junior, and you demonstrate need for a $3,000 
Federal Stafford Loan, you may borrow up to $2,500 more in an 
unsubsidized loan if you wish. The maximum borrowing limit for 
undergraduates is $23,000. 

The Student Loan Reform Act of 1993 has abolished the Federal 
Supplemental Loan for Students (SLS). As a result, the annual limits for the 
Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan will be increased for students who are 
classified as independent, or for those dependent students whose parents 
do not qualify to borrow the Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate 



18 Fees, Expenses, and Financial Aid 



Students (PLUS). Therefore, the unsubsidized loan borrowing limits will be 
increased by $4,000 for first- and second-year undergraduates, and 
$5,000 for third-, fourth- and fifth-year undergraduates. The aggregate loan 
limits are also adjusted to reflect the increased annual limits. 

Federal PLUS (Parent Loans For Undergraduate Students): This is a non- 
need-based loan which parents may borrow to help them pay for their 
dependent children's education. The Federal PLUS enables parents to 
borrow the full yearly cost of the student's education (as determined by the 
school) minus all other financial aid. Otherwise, there is no yearly or 
cumulative borrowing limit. Because this loan is not need-based, 
submission of the FAFSA is not required to apply. However, the loan 
application must first be submitted to the school for calculation of the 
amount which the parent may borrow for the student in that year. Final 
approval of the loan by the parents' chosen lender will be based on credit 
history. The interest rate for the Federal PLUS is variable, capped at 9%, 
and is reset J uly 1 of each year to equal the rate on the 52-week Treasury 
Bill on June 1, plus 3.1%. Repayment of the loan begins immediately.

The Center for Teaching Excellence 

2130 Mitchell Building 

The Center for Teaching Excellence supports campus-wide efforts to 
enhance undergraduate education. The Center offers tangible assistance to 
individual faculty and teaching assistants (TAs), as well as to the 
departments and colleges in which they work. It provides workshops and 
conversations related to teaching and learning issues; assistance in 
organizing and implementing faculty teaching workshops, TA training 
activities, and evaluation/ support strategies related to improving teaching; 
consultation on particular areas of concern in teaching and learning, 
research into teaching practice, and implementation of innovative teaching- 
learning strategies.

For more information please call Dr. Jim Greenberg, the Center Project 
Coordinator, at 405-3154 or 405-9368. 



Distinguished Scholar-Teacher Program

Distinguished Scholar-Teacher (DST) is the highest recognition this campus 
gives to faculty. Faculty are selected for this honor based on both their 
intellectual achievements and on their abilities to translate their 
scholarship into successful classroom teaching. The DST Program brings 
the insights of these faculty to a larger audience by allowing them to teach 
a special Honors course and to give a public lecture during their year as 
DSTs. 

For information, please contact the Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs at 
4054252. 

Summer and Special Programs 

2103 Reckord Armory, 405-6551 
Melvin E. Hall, Dean 

The summer school consists of two six-week sessions and numerous 
additional courses of various length from three to eight weeks. Newly 
admitted students may begin their studies during the summer rather than 
the following fall term. By taking advantage of this opportunity and 
continuing to attend summer sessions, completion of a baccalaureate 
degree might be shortened by a year or more. 

Attendance during the summer sessions eases the transition from high 
school to college. Classes are generally smaller, meet every day, and 
faculty contact is more frequent. Courses offered during the summer are 
the same in content and instruction as those offered during the academic 
year. 

The summer cultural and recreational programs are an important part of 
"Summer at Maryland." The Maryland Summer Institute for the Creative 
and Performing Arts offers a series of programs in art, dance, drama, film 
and music, and presents world-class artists on the campus. 

Facilities for most sports and an intramural program in several team and 
individual sports are available. For additional information, write for a 
Summer Programs catalog: Dean, Continuing Education, Summer and 
Special Programs, University of Maryland at College Park, College Park, Md. 
20742. 



CAMPUS RESOURCES AND SERVICES 



Academic Achievement Programs 

0111 Chemistry Building, 4054736 

Intensive Educational Development: Provides comprehensive, structured 
support services to first- and second-year students currently enrolled at the 
University of Maryland at College Park, whose academic profile would 
suggest that they might be at retention risk without this support. IED also 
provides academic support and counseling services as needed to upper- 
level IED students. Support services include math and English review, 
tutoring, and study skills enhancement instruction. 

Prospective students attempting to gain admission to the University by 
participating in this program are required to attend the six-week Summer 



Transitional Program, designed to develop, expand, and improve English, 
math, and study skills, assist in the transition from high school to the 
University, and both challenge and evaluate each student's potential for 
success at this institution. 

Student Support Services: A U.S. Department of Education grant-supported 
program, which provides academic advisement (first and second years), 
counseling, tutoring, and skill enhancement instruction to low-income and 
first-generation college students. SSS also assists participants in 
identifying and acquiring significant financial aid to meet a student's full 
unmet need. 

Ronald E. M cNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement: A U.S. Department of 
Education grant-supported program, which provides low-income and first-

week summer component includes a stipend of approximately $2,000. 

Academic Support for Returning Athletes: Provides continuing educational 
opportunities and support to former basketball and football athletes who 
were in good academic standing; had attained junior or senior level status; 
had exhausted athletic eligibility; and left the University without obtaining 
the undergraduate degree. The program enables students to return to the 
classroom and complete degree requirements. 

Academic Advising 

Academic advising is an essential part of an undergraduate's educational 
experiences. 

Advantages of Advising: Students can expect advising to help them 

(1) better understand their purposes for attending the University; 

(2) develop insights about personal behaviors that promote improved 
adjustment to the campus setting; 

(3) increase their awareness of academic programs and course 
offerings at the University of Maryland at College Park; 

(4) more frequently explore opportunities both inside and outside the 
classroom for intellectual and cultural development; 

(5) acquire decision-making skills that can accelerate academic and 
career planning; 

(6) more realistically evaluate their academic progress and its 
relationships to successful planning; and 

(7) understand the relationship between academic success and 
planning skills. 



Required Advising 

Students enrolled in certain majors are required to see advisors before 
each registration. Even when advising is not mandatory, the University 
expects students to see an advisor under certain circumstances: 

Students in Their First Year of Registration at the University of 
M aryland at College Park 

Students Receiving an Academic Warning (Mandatory) 

Students Dismissed From the University (M andatory) 

Students Who Withdraw From the University (M andatory)

opportunities available to them. At both college and department levels, at 
least one person has been designated to coordinate advising. A list of 
these persons, providing name, room number, and telephone extension, is 
published each semester in the Schedule of Classes. Students who are 
unable to locate an advisor or who have questions about campus advising 
programs should visit or call the Division of Letters and Sciences, 1117

(GRE, GMAT, LSAT, etc.) and many other publications also are available, 
such as Black Collegian, Career Choices in Public Service, Career 
Choices in Communications & Entertainment, Job Choices for Business, 
Hispanic Business, and Graduating Engineer. 

Credentials Service. Credentials are a student's permanent professional 
record including letters of recommendation, student teaching 
evaluations, course listings and background information. UMCP 
undergraduate/ graduate students or UMCP alumni may establish a file 
to support applications for graduate and professional schools (law, 
medicine, dentistry, etc.) and/ or employment in education, government, 
and not-for-profit organizations. All teacher education majors are required 
to establish a credential file for employment purposes. 

Experiential Learning. Apply classroom learning, explore career 
possibilities, learn about the culture of an organization, and develop 
meaningful professional skills through internship and cooperative 
education experiences. Some of these opportunities maybe appropriate 
for experiential learning credit. (See below for information.) 

National Student Exchange (NSE). NSE provides students with the 
opportunity to study at one of over 100 colleges and universities in the 
United States, including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin 
Islands. All NSE schools are regionally accredited. To be eligible, UMCP 
students must have a 2.5 GPA. Students must earn their final 30 hours 
of credits at College Park. March 1 is the application deadline. 

Workshops and Special Events. Group programs each semester include: 
Choosing a Major, Interviewing, Resume Writing, Senior Job Search 
Orientation, Gaining Experience Through Cooperative Education and 
Internships, Job Search Strategies, and Applying to Graduate School. 
Special events that bring students and employer representatives

International Student Job Fair; Teacher Interviewing Days; and National 
Student Employment Week. 

Student Employment Center (SEC)

"work and learn" philosophy by helping students to see the 
relationship between their work experiences and classroom 
learning/ major. The SEC provides assistance to students looking for 
part-time, temporary, summer, internship, cooperative education, 
and full-time opportunities. 

Electronic Registration. Students who want fast and 
comprehensive access to employment opportunities should plan to 



24 Campus Administration, Resources, and Student Services 



purchase an electronic registration disk for use with the Career 
Center's computerized information management system. A one- 
time, nominal fee allows access to all the Center's computerized 
employment programs throughout your UMCP collegiate experience. 
Use the system for help in finding a part-time or summer job, 
internship, cooperative education placement, or full-time 
opportunity. The system is easy to use and allows 24-hour access 
to job listings, the opportunity to sign up via computer for on- 
campus job interviews, and the ability to have your resume referred 
directly to employers seeking to hire UMCP students and alumni. 
Registered students can access job opportunities and interview 
schedule information via terminals in the Career Center and the 
WAM labs across campus. NOTE: Students should plan to update 
disks once every semester in order to keep information active in 
our database. 

Part-time, Temporary, and Summer Jobs (previously the Job Referral 
Service). Many opportunities for students both on-campus and off- 
campus are available through the Career Center. Several job fairs 
and National Student Employment Week are held to assist students 
in locating and securing part-time employment. NOTE: Students 
eligible for Federal Work -Study positions should contact the Office 
of Student Financial Aid. Students interested in community 
service should contact Community Service Programs and the 
Office of Student Financial Aid for assistance. 

Internships. Internships are paid or unpaid work experiences with 
specific educational objectives for which students may be granted 
academic credit. Internships are available for most majors. The 
Career Center maintains current files on over 700 private 
businesses and government agencies that are actively seeking 
interns. Workshops are offered to assist students in the process of 
locating internships. Finding a rewarding internship takes time, so 
students should start looking early in the semester before they 
would like to begin work. 

Cooperative Education for Liberal Arts, Business, and the 
Sciences (Co-op). Co-op allows students to learn more about their 
field of study, gain paid, professional-level work experience that is 
related to their major, and earn a competitive salary. To be eligible, 
students must have completed 36 semester hours, 12 UMCP 
credits the semester before enrolling in the Co-op program, and 
maintain a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA. Students may work either 
full time or part time. The minimum work commitment is equal to six 
months of full-time work. Interested students must attend two 
required information and preparation sessions. Students should 
apply the semester before they wish to begin working. See the 
College of Engineering entry in this catalog for details about the 
Engineering Co-op Program. 

On-Campus Recruiting Program (OCRP). Each year several hundred 
companies, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and 
school systems visit the campus seeking to hire UMCP students. 
Interviews for part-time, summer, internship, Co-op, and full-time 
positions are available. Students must be registered with the Center 
in order to participate in this program. 

Candidate Referral Service. Employers who are unable to visit 
campus to conduct interviews can have resumes of interested 
students sent immediately to them through the Candidate Referral 
Service. Students can participate in this service by registering with 
the Center via the electronic referral disk. Each year over 15,000 
resumes of UMCP students are sent to employers. 

Career Classes and Credit 



Experiential Learning Credit (3-6 credits.). Internships and 
cooperative education opportunities may be closely integrated with 
classroom learning. The university uses the course number 386, 
offered through academic departments and colleges, to denote 
experiential learning credit. In order to earn credit, students must 
secure a faculty sponsor, complete a learning proposal, and meet 
all University regulations governing experiential learning credit. See 
Chapter 4 for University regulations and full information.

shared governance, has representation from all segments of the campus 
community: staff, faculty, and undergraduate and graduate students. 
Participation in the Senate or any of its 15 standing committees is an 
honor and a responsibility. 

The full Senate meets approximately eight times a year to consider matters 
of concern to the institution, including academic issues, university policies, 
plans, facilities, and the welfare of faculty, staff, and students. The Senate 
advises the President, the Chancellor, or the Board of Regents as it deems 
appropriate. To become a student senator, students must be elected 
through their college or school or the Office of Undergraduate Studies. 
Elections are held every year during the spring semester. Students are also 
encouraged to participate in Senate standing committees, such as Student 
Affairs and Human Relations. These committees draw membership from 
the campus community at large and cover every aspect of campus life and 
function. Details about the election and appointment processes are 
available from the College Park Senate office. 

Community Service Programs 

1195 Stamp Student Union, 314-CARE

Counseling Center 

Shoemaker Building, 314-7651 

The Counseling Center provides comprehensive psychological and 
counseling services to meet the mental health and developmental needs of 
students. Records kept as part of providing counseling services are 
confidential, and are not part of the University's educational records. The 
Counseling Center is open Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 
p.m. and Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

In order to help students overcome barriers to their learning and 
development, the Counseling Center provides the following special services 
and programs: 

Counseling Service (314-7651). Psychologists provide 
professional, individual and group counseling services for students 
with career, social, and personal adjustment concerns. Counseling 
is available to overcome depression, career indecisiveness, anxiety, 
loneliness and other problems experienced by students. Workshops 
ranging from developing assertiveness and self-esteem to managing 
stress are offered. A 3 p.m. Minority Student Walk-in Hour is held 
daily. The center also provides a series of tape-recorded interviews 
with College Park academic department heads about courses and 
career options in those fields. 

Learning Assistance Service (314-7693). Educational specialists 
offer individual and group sessions for improving academic skills 
such as reading, writing, listening, notetaking, and learning 
mathematics and science material. Workshops cover such topics as 
study skills, time management, math skills, exam anxiety, and 
English as a second language. 

Disability Support Service (314-7682, TDD 314-7683). Services for 
disabled students include assistance in locating interpreters for 
hearing-impaired students, readers for visually-impaired students, 
and access guides to various buildings and facilities on campus. 
Services must be arranged in advance. New students are urged to 
contact the office as soon as possible. 

The University of Maryland at College Park is committed to making 
reasonable accommodations that will permit students with specific 
learning disabilities the opportunity to develop and demonstrate 
proficiency in the required subject matter. As the guiding principle 
was stated by the College Park Senate in 1989, "consideration 
should always be to accommodate the student's learning 
differences, not to water down scholastic requirements." 

Responsibilities of Students with Learning Disabilities. Students 
bear the primary responsibility for identifying their disabilities and 
for making the necessary adjustments to the learning environment. 
Students with learning disabilities are responsible for promptly 
communicating their needs for appropriate accommodations to the 
Office of Disability Support Service (DSS). Students may be 
required to obtain official documentation, testing and evaluation 
because determination of appropriate accommodation is based on 
the specific nature of the disability in individual cases. Some 
accommodations are within the authority of DSS and/ or the faculty 
member(s) involved. 

Responsibilities of the University of Maryland at College Park. 
DSS counsels students and faculty and makes recommendations 
to the appropriate offices regarding whether and what kind of 
special aids or adaptations may be required by students with 
disabilities. Instructional, testing, and evaluation adjustments may 
be made by the faculty member(s) involved after the specific 
learning disability has been identified, verified, and discussed with 
DSS. The Deans will make the final decisions regarding requests 
for adjustments to curriculum, in consultation with DSS and the 
faculty member(s) involved. 

Testing, Research, and Data Processing Unit (314-7688). National 
testing programs such as CLEP, GRE, LSAT, MCAT, GMAT and Miller 
Analogies, as well as testing for counseling purposes including 
career assessment are administered through this office. Staff 
members produce a wide variety of research reports on 
characteristics of students and the campus environment. 

Parent Consultation and Child Evaluation Service (314-7673). 
Professional help is available through consultation, testing, and 
counseling for youngsters ages 5 through 14, and families.

Orientation 

1195 Stamp Student Union, 314-8217 

The primary goal of orientation is to ease the transition of new students 
into the University community. Orientation begins when students are 
admitted to the University, and ends at the culmination of the first 
semester. At the time of admission to the University, new students will 
receive material announcing the orientation and registration program. The 
purpose of the program is to 

• introduce new students to the academic community, 

• coordinate academic advisement for the first semester, 

• introduce campus services and resources, 

• register students for their first semester courses. 

The Freshman Program runs for two days and provides new students with 
the opportunity to interact formally and informally with faculty, 
administrators, returning students, and other new students. The Transfer 
Program lasts for one day and focuses on transfer evaluation, advisement, 
and registration. 

Note: Students who arrive after 8:30 a.m. on their program day will be 
reassigned to the next available day. 

Parents of new students are invited to attend a one-day program 
specifically designed to introduce them to the academic, social, and 
cultural opportunities of the University. These programs are offered during 
June and July. 

The Orientation Office also coordinates the ongoing one-credit orientation 
course EDCP 108-O. The goal of this course is to introduce students to the 
world of higher education generally, and to the University of Maryland 
specifically. The course is taught by faculty and administrators, and is 
limited to 22 students per section. 

Parking 

Parking Garage 2 (on Regents Drive), 314-PARK 

The Department of Campus Parking (DCP) is responsible for managing and 
maintaining over 16,000 parking spaces on the University of Maryland at 
College Park (UMCP) campus. All students who plan to park a licensed 
motor vehicle in one of these spaces must register for a parking permit at 
the DCP office or park at paid meters. Campus resident students who have 
earned 55 or fewer UMCP-accepted credits may not register for a parking 
permit. 

Because UMCP has limited parking spaces, parking regulations are strictly 
enforced. 

Illegally parked vehicles, as well as those vehicles not displaying a UMCP 
parking permit, will be ticketed, and students with outstanding parking 
fines maybe barred from registration. 

Complete parking regulations, a disabled parking directory, parking 
registration rates, motor vehicle assistance program information, schedule 
of fines, and other information may be obtained from DCP.

their college experience is to balance academic pursuits with recreational 
and social activities. Campus Recreation Services (CRS) offers students a 
variety of healthy leisure-time activities that add an important dimension to 
student life. 



Campus Administration, Resources, and Student Services 29 



Through its intramural program, CRS offers students the opportunity to 
participate in more than 25 organized sports, tournaments, and events 
each year. Activities range from flag football to Softball to wrestling. 

For students who prefer unstructured physical activities, CRS operates 
several fitness centers and weight rooms on campus. In addition, there are 
two swimming pools and a number of indoor courts on which to play 
everything from basketball to volleyball. 

Aerobics and water exercise activities are always a good way to stay fit, so 
CRS offers low-impact, high-impact, step, fat-burner, and power workouts 
year-round. 

Sport clubs provide another way for all students to participate in 
recreational activities. Currently, there are more than 25 CRS-sponsored 
clubs at Maryland. Clubs range in interest from water polo to Okinawan 
karate, and offer students a variety of opportunities for instruction, 
competition, practice, and socialization. 

Student registration fees cover virtually all costs of participating in CRS 
activities. 



All students are encouraged to live on campus. Freshman and transfer 
students will find housing accommodations and student interaction a 
benefit to the college experience. To secure an offer of housing and dining

CHAPTER 4 



REGISTRATION, ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS 
AND REGULATIONS 



REGISTRATION 

Mitchell Building, first floor, 314-8240 

To attend classes at the University of Maryland at College Park it is 
necessary to process an official registration. Specific registration dates and 
instructions can be found in the current Schedule of Classes. The schedule 
is issued four times per year: prior to early registration for the fall and 
spring semesters, and again at the beginning of each semester. The 
Summer Programs catalog is distributed in late March. 

1. Newly admitted students are invited and encouraged to attend an 
orientation session. Advising and course registration are part of 
the program. All newly admitted students must meet with an 
advisor prior to registration. 

2. All newly admitted freshman and transfer students are required to 
provide proof of immunization for measles, rubella, mumps, and 
tetanus/ diphtheria. 

3. Currently enrolled students are invited to early registration. 
Registration appointments for the fall semester begin in late 
March; appointments for the spring semester begin in late 
October. 

4. Open registration follows early registration and continues up to the 
first day of classes. During this time students may make schedule 
adjustments or process an original registration. 

5. The schedule adjustment period is the first 10 days of classes for 
the fall and spring semesters, and the first 5 days of classes for 
summer sessions. During this period, full-time undergraduates 
may drop or add courses, change sections, or change credit level 
with no charge. Part-time undergraduates may also drop or add 
courses, change sections, or change credit level, but they should 
consult the deadline section in the Schedule of Classes to avoid 
incurring additional charges. The choice of grading method option 
(including the pass-fail option) may be changed only during the 
schedule adjustment period. Registration is final and official when 
all fees are paid. 

Departments may identify courses or sections of courses with the 
approval of the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, 
which after the first five days of the schedule adjustment period in 
spring and fall semesters, shall require faculty or departmental 
approval for students to add. 

Courses may be added, when space is available, during the 
schedule adjustment period, and will appear on the student's 
permanent record along with other courses previously listed. 
Courses dropped during this period will not appear on the 
student's permanent record. 

6. After the schedule adjustment period: 

a) Courses may not be added without special permission of the 
department and the dean of the academic unit in which the 
student is enrolled. 

b) All courses for which the student is enrolled shall remain as a 
part of the student's permanent record. The student's status 
shall be considered as full-time if the number of credit hours 
enrolled at this time is 12 or more. 

c) An official class list for each course being offered is issued to 
the appropriate department by the Office of Records and 
Registrations. Students are not permitted to attend a class if 
their names do not appear on the class list. Instructors must 
report discrepancies to the Office of Records and Registration. 

7. The drop period for undergraduate students will begin at the close 

of the schedule adjustment period and terminate at the end of 
tenth week of classes during the fall and spring semesters and 
at a corresponding time for summer sessions. 



During the drop period a student may drop a maximum of four 
credits. However, if the course that the student wishes to drop 
carries more than four credits, the student may drop the entire 
course or, in the case of a variable credit course, reduce the credit 
level by up to four credits. Such a drop will be recorded on the 
student's permanent record with the notation "W" and will be 
considered to represent a single enrollment (one of two possible) 
in the course. This mark shall not be used in any computation of 
cumulative grade point average. 

8. At the end of the semester official grade lists are issued to each 
department. Instructors mark the final grades on the grade lists, 
sign the lists and return them to Records and Registration. 

9. Withdrawal from the University. Students wishing to withdraw 
from all courses must do so on or before the last day of classes. 
The policies governing withdrawals are as follows: 

a. Should a student desire or be compelled to withdraw from the 
University at any time, he or she must secure a form for 
withdrawal from the Records Office, and submit the form along 
with the semester registration card. 

b. The effective date of withdrawal as far as refunds are 
concerned is the date that the withdrawal form is received by 
the Records Office. Notation of withdrawal, and the effective 
date of the withdrawal, will be posted to the permanent record. 
Instructors and college offices will be notified of all withdrawn 
students. The deadline date for submitting the withdrawal form 
for each semester is the last day of classes. Contact 
Undergraduate Admission for readmission information. 

c. It is the intent of the University of Maryland at College Park to 
facilitate the withdrawal or change in registration and the 
reenrollment of students who are called to active military duty 
during the semester. The student (or a representative) should 
bring a copy of the military orders to the Records Office and 
process "withdrawal" papers or "change in registration" 
papers. Complete procedures are available from the Office of 
Records and Registration. 

d. Courses are not counted in the repeat policy limitations. 

10. In the case of students who are advised in the Division of Letters 
and Sciences when Dean's approval is required, the Dean for 
Undergraduate Studies shall assume the responsibilities normally 
delegated to the Dean. 

General Education Requirements 

Please see Chapter 5. 

Enrollment in Majors 

A student who is eligible to remain at the University of Maryland at College 
Park may transfer among curricula, colleges, or other academic units 
except where limitations on enrollments have been approved. By the time 
they complete 56 credits, students are expected to declare a degree- 
granting major. Students must be enrolled in the major program from which 
they plan to graduate, when registering for the final 15 hours of the 
baccalaureate program. This requirement also applies to the third year of 
the combined, preprofessional degree programs. See below for information 
on double majors and double degrees. 

Credit Unit and Load Each Semester 

No baccalaureate curriculum requires fewer than 120 semester hours. The 
semester hour, which is the unit of credit, is the equivalent of a subject 
pursued one period a week for one semester. Two or three hours of 



32 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



laboratory or field work are equivalent to one lecture or recitation period. 
The student is expected to devote three hours a week in classroom or 
laboratory or in outside preparation for each credit hour in any course. 

In order for undergraduate students to complete most curricula in four 
academic years, the semester credit load must range from 12 to 19 hours 
so that they would complete from 30 to 36 hours each year toward the 
degree. Students registering for more than 19 hours per semester must 
have the approval of their Dean. 

Classification of Students 

Official classifications of undergraduate students are based on earned 
credits as follows: freshman, 1-27 semester hours; sophomore, 28-55; 
junior, 56-85; and senior, 86 to at least 120. 

Concurrent Undergraduate-Graduate Registration 

A senior at the University of Maryland whose GPA is at least 3.0 and who is 
within seven hours of completing the requirements for the undergraduate 
degree may, with the approval of his or her dean, the chair of the 
department concerned, and the Graduate School, register for graduate 
courses, which may later be counted for graduate credit toward an 
advanced degree at this university. The total of undergraduate and 
graduate credits in the senior year cannot be used for graduate credit 
unless proper pre-arrangement is made. Seniors who wish to take 
advantage of this opportunity must formally apply for admission to the 
graduate school. 

Undergraduate Credit for Graduate Level Courses 

Subject to requirements determined by the graduate faculty of the 
department or program offering the course, undergraduate students may 
register for graduate level courses, i.e., those numbered from 600 to 898, 
with the exception of 799, for undergraduate credit. 

A student seeking to utilize the option will normally be in the senior year, 
have earned an accumulated grade point average of at least 3.0, have 
successfully completed, with a grade of "B" or better, the prerequisite and 
correlative courses, and be in a major in the offering or a closely related 
department. The student will be required to obtain prior approval of the 
department offering the course. Graduate School approval is not required. 

Enrollment in a graduate level course does not in any way imply 
subsequent departmental or graduate school approval for admission into a 
graduate program, nor may the course be used as credit for a graduate 
degree at the University of M aryland. 

Individual Combined BA/ MA Programs 

In 1990, the Board of Regents of the University of Maryland authorized the 
development of individual combined Bachelor's and Master's degree 
programs. For complete guidelines, requirements, and application 
procedures, students should consult with their major department no later 
than the beginning of the second semester of the sophomore year. 

Courses Taken at Other Institutions or Through the Inter- 
institutional Registration Program 

Courses taken at another institution may not be credited toward a degree 
without approval in advance by the dean of the college from which the 
student expects a degree. The same rule applies to off campus registration 
in the summer program of another institution and the UMS Concurrent 
Inter-Institutional Registration Program. Courses taken through The 
Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area are treated 
as resident credit. (See section on the Consortium, below.) Permission to 
enroll in off-campus courses must be requested for any course which will 
eventually be added to the University of Maryland at College Park transcript. 

The Consortium of Universities of the Washington 
Metropolitan Area 

The Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area 
consists of American University, The Catholic University of America, 
Gallaudet College, Georgetown University, George Washington University, 
Howard University, Marymount University, Mt. Vernon College, Trinity 
College, University of the District of Columbia, and the University of 
Maryland at College Park. Students enrolled in these institutions are able 
to attend certain classes at the other campuses and have the credit 
considered as resident credit at their own institutions. The intention is to 



allow students to take an occasional course to augment a program rather 
than to develop an individual program. Payment of tuition for courses will 
be made at the student's home campus. 

Currently registered, degree-seeking University of Maryland at College Park 
undergraduates may participate in the consortium program according to the 
stipulations listed in the current edition of the Schedule of Classes. Golden 
ID students are not eligible to enroll in courses through the consortium with 
waiver of fees. Students interested in additional information about the 
consortium program should contact the consortium coordinator in the Office 
of Records and Registration, Mitchell Building. 

UMS Concurrent Inter-Institutional Registration Program 

College Park undergraduate students participating in the UMS Concurrent 
Inter-Institutional Registration Program should have sophomore standing, 
be in good academic standing, have approval from their dean for the 
coursefs) to count as resident credit, and be enrolled full time in a degree 
program at College Park for the semester in which the course(s) are taken. 
Full-time status is defined as a combination of credits registered at College 
Park and the registered credits at the host institution. 

Enrollment in courses is on a space-available basis. Visiting students are 
expected to meet prerequisites or other criteria set by the host institution 
and comply with the host institution's registration procedures and 
deadlines. 

Veterans Benefits 

Students attending the University under the Veterans Education Assistance 
Act (Title 38, U.S. Code) may receive assistance and enrollment 
certification at the Veterans Certification Office in Records and 
Registration, first floor, Mitchell Building. Consult the Schedule of Classes 
for further information. 



Identification Cards 

There are two cards, used jointly, to identify currently enrolled students: the 
photo identification and the semester registration cards. The photo ID card 
is issued at the time the student first registers for classes. This card is to 
be used for the entire duration of enrollment. Additionally, students who 
have food service contracts will use this photo identification card. Contact 
Dining Services directly for further information. The semester registration 
card validates the photo identification card and is issued for each semester 
in which the student is registered. Both cards should be carried at all 
times. 

Together the photo identification card and semester registration card can 
be used by students to withdraw books from the libraries, for admission to 
most athletic, social, and cultural events, and as a general form of 
identification on campus. 

There is a replacement charge of $1 for lost or stolen registration cards 
and $20 for iost, stolen, or broken photo identification cards. Questions 
concerning the identification card system should be addressed to the Office 
of Records and Registration. 

Change of Address 

Students are expected to notify the Office of Records and Registration of 
any change in their local or permanent address. Change of Address forms 
are available at the Registration Counter, first floor, Mitchell Building, and 
at the Office of the Bursar, first floor, Lee Building. 



ATTENDANCE AND ASSESSM ENT/ 
EXAMINATIONS 



Attendance 



The University expects each student to take full responsibility for 
his or her academic work and academic progress. The student, to 
progress satisfactorily, must meet the quantitative requirements 
of each course for which he or she is registered. Students are 
expected to attend classes regularly, for consistent attendance 
offers the most effective opportunity open to all students to gain 
command of the concepts and materials of their course of study. 
However, attendance in class, in and of itself, is not a criterion for 
evaluation of the student's degree of success or failure. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 33 



Furthermore, absences (whether excused or unexcused) do not 
alter what is expected of the student qualitatively and 
quantitatively. Except as provided below, absences will not be 
used in the computation of grades, and the recording of student 
absences will not be required of the faculty. 

2. It is the policy of the University to excuse the absences of 
students that result from the following causes: illness (where the 
student is too ill to attend class), religious observance (where the 
nature of the observance prevents the student from being present 
during the class period), participation in University activities at the 
request of University authorities, and compelling circumstances 
beyond the student's control. Students claiming excused absence 
must furnish documentary support for their assertion that absence 
resulted from one of these causes. 

3. In certain courses, in-class participation is an ongoing requirement 
and an integral part of the work of the course, for example, 
courses in public speaking, courses requiring group discussion, 
courses emphasizing physical activity and conversation in foreign 
languages, and courses with laboratories. In other courses, 
occasional in-class assessments may occur, sometimes without 
advance notice. It is the responsibility of the instructor to inform 
each class at the beginning of the semester of the nature of in- 
class participation expected and what effect absences will have 
on the evaluation of the student's work in the course. 

4. Absences in courses where in-class participation is a significant 
part of the work of the course shall be handled by the instructor in 
the course in accordance with the general policy of his or her 
department and college. 

Assessment 

1. The University provides for the rescheduling of significant 
assessments by students without penalty, when such 
assessments are missed by students with an excused absence, 
except in cases where the nature of the assessment precludes 
the possibility of rescheduling. In no case may an examination be 
scheduled on Rosh Hoshanah, Yom Kippur, Good Friday or the 
first two days of Passover. (Students who have a concern with 
other religious observances should see their instructor at the start 
of the semester.) An instructor is not under obligation to give a 
student a make-up assessment unless the failure to perform was 
due to an excused absence, that is, due to illness (where the 
student is too ill to attend class), religious observance (where the 
nature of the observance prevents the student from being present 
during the class period), participation in university activities at the 
request of University authorities, or compelling circumstances 
beyond the student's control. In cases of dispute, the student may 
appeal to the chair of the department offering the course within 
one week from the date of the refusal of the right to a make-up 
assignment. In those instances where the instructor is the chair, 
the appeal may be made to the dean; the chair's or dean's 
decision is final. When permitted, a make-up assessment must 
be given on campus unless the published schedule or course 
description requires other arrangements. The make-up 
assessment must be at a time and place mutually agreeable to 
the instructor and student, cover only the material for which the 
student was originally responsible, be at a comparable level of 
difficulty with the original assessment, and be given within a time 
limit that retains the currency of the material. The make-up 
assessment must not interfere with the student's regularly 
scheduled classes. In the event that a group of students requires 
the same make-up assessment, one make-up assessment time 
may be scheduled at the convenience of the instructor and the 
largest possible number of students involved. 

2. The student must notify his or her instructor of the reason for 
absence as soon as possible. Where the reason for absence from 
a scheduled assessment is known well in advance (for example, in 
cases of religious observance or participation in University 
activities at the request of University authorities), the student 
must inform the instructor by the end of the schedule adjustment 
period. Prior notification is especially important in connection with 
final examinations, since failure to reschedule a final examination 
before conclusion of the final examination period may result in 
loss of credits during the semester. Where the reason is not 
known well in advance (for example, in cases of illness or 
compelling circumstances beyond the student's control), the 
student must inform the instructor as soon as the reason 
develops, if that is feasible, or, otherwise, as soon as possible 
after its development. 

3. All examinations and tests shall be given during class hours in 
accordance with the regularly scheduled (or officially "arranged") 
time and place of each course listed in the Schedule of Classes. 



Unpublished changes in the scheduling or location of 
classes/ tests must be approved by the department chair and 
reported to the dean. It is the responsibility of the student to be 
informed concerning the dates of announced quizzes, tests, and 
examinations. 

4. A final examination shall be given in every undergraduate course. 
Exceptions may be made with the written approval of the chair of 
the department or the dean. All final examinations must be held 
on the examination days of the Official Final Examination 
Schedule. No final examination shall be given at a time other than 
that scheduled in the Official Final Examination Schedule without 
written permission of the department chair. 

5. Graduating seniors will be expected to take final examinations 
during the regular final examination period. However, graduating 
seniors are not required to take final examinations on the day of 
graduation or on any regularly scheduled day following graduation. 
In courses with examinations scheduled on those days, graduating 
seniors must notify their instructors by the end of the schedule 
adjustment period. 

6. The chair of each department is responsible for the adequate 
administration of examinations in courses under his or her 
jurisdiction. 

7. Every examination shall be designed to require for its completion 
not more than the regularly scheduled period. In the case of final 
examinations, the time allotted should not exceed the scheduled 
final examination period. 

8. A typewritten, mimeographed, or printed set of questions shall be 
placed in the hands of every examinee in every test or 
examination requiring at least one period, unless the dean has 
authorized some other procedure. 

9. The following rules shall govern all University examinations, unless 
the instructor for a specific course stipulates alternate rules for 
that course. A breach of any of the rules shall constitute 
"disruption of class," a disciplinary offense (Code of Student 
Conduct, section 9[j]), and may serve as the basis of an allegation 
of academic dishonesty. 

a. Students arriving late for an examination may not 
unreasonably disrupt the examination room. 

b. Students must leave all unauthorized materials (e.g., books, 
notes, calculators) with the proctor before being seated. 

c. Where seating arrangements are established by proctors, 
students must conform to these arrangements. 

d. Students may not return to an examination room after leaving, 
unless permission to do so has been granted by the proctor 
prior to the student's departure. 

e. Students must cease conversation prior to the passing out of 
examination papers and maintain silence during the entire 
examination period. 

f. Students must place examination papers face down on the 
writing desk until the examination is officially begun by the 
proctor. 

g. Students must keep examination papers flat on the writing 
desk at all times. 

h. Students at an examination must be prepared to show current 
University identification. 

10. Each faculty member is to retain, for one full semester after a 
course is ended, the students' final examinations. If a faculty 
member goes on leave for a semester or longer, or leaves the 
University, the final examinations and grade records for the course 
must be left with the department chair. 

Statement on Classroom Climate 

The University of Maryland at College Park values the diversity of its 
student body and is committed to providing a classroom atmosphere that 
encourages the equitable participation of all students. Patterns of 
interaction in the classroom between the faculty member and students and 
among the students themselves may inadvertently communicate 
preconceptions about student abilities based on age, disability, ethnicity, 
gender, national origin, race, religion or sexual orientation. These patterns 
are due in part to the differences the students themselves bring to the 
classroom. Classroom instructors should be particularly sensitive to being 
equitable in the opportunities they provide students to answer questions in 
class, to contribute their own ideas, and to participate fully in projects in 
and outside of the classroom. 

Of equal importance to equity in the classroom is the need to attend to 
potential devaluation of students that can occur by reference to demeaning 
stereotypes of any group and/ or overlooking the contributions of a 
particular group to the topic under discussion. J oking at the expense of any 
group creates an inhospitable environment and is inappropriate. Moreover, 
in providing evaluations of students, it is essential that instructors avoid 



34 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



distorting these evaluations with preconceived expectations about the 
intellectual capacities of any group. 

It is the responsibility of individual faculty members to review their 
classroom behaviors, and those of any teaching assistants they supervise, 
to ensure that students are treated equitably and not discouraged or 
devalued based on their differences. Resources for self-evaluation and 
training for faculty members on classroom climate and interaction patterns 
are available from the Office of Human Relations. 



RECORDS 
Marking System 

The Records Office, located on the first floor of the Mitchell Building, is 
responsible for maintaining student records and issuing official 
transcripts. 

The following symbols are used on the student's permanent record for all 
courses in which he or she is enrolled after the initial registration and 
schedule adjustment period: A, B, C, D, F, XF, I, P, S, and W. These marks 
remain as part of the student's permanent record and maybe changed only 
by the original instructor on certification, approved by the department chair 
and the dean, that an actual mistake was made in determining or recording 
the grade. 

A— denotes excellent mastery of the subject and outstanding 
scholarship. In computations of cumulative or semester averages, a 
mark of A will be assigned a value of 4 quality points per credit 
hour. 

B — denotes good mastery of the subject and good scholarship. A 
mark of B is assigned a value of 3 quality points per credit hour. 

C — denotes acceptable mastery of the subject and the usual 
achievement expected. A mark of C is assigned a value of 2 quality 
points per credit hour. 

D— denotes borderline understanding of the subject. It denotes 
marginal performance, and it does not represent satisfactory 
progress toward a degree. A mark of D is assigned a value of 1 
quality point per credit hour. 

F— denotes failure to understand the subject and unsatisfactory 
performance. A mark of F is assigned a value of quality points per 
credit hour. 

XF— denotes failure due to academic dishonesty. 

S — is a department option mark that may be used to denote 
satisfactory performance by a student in progressing thesis 
projects, orientation courses, practice teaching, and the like. In 
computation of cumulative averages a mark of S will not be 
included. 

W— is used to indicate withdrawal from a course in which the 
student was enrolled at the end of the schedule adjustment period. 
For information and completeness, the mark of W is placed on the 
student's permanent record by the Office of Records and 
Registrations. The instructor will be notified that the student has 
withdrawn from the course. This mark is not used in any 
computation of quality points or cumulative average totals at the 
end of the semester. 

Audit— A student may register to audit a course or courses which 
have been designated as available under the audit option and in 
which space is available. The notation AUD will be placed on the 
transcript for each course audited. A notation to the effect that this 
symbol does not imply attendance or any other effort in the course 
will be included on the transcript in the explanation of the grading 
system. 

Pass-Fail— The mark of P is a student option mark, equivalent to A, 
B, C,or D. The student must inform the Registration Office of the 
selection of this option by the end of the schedule adjustment 
period. 

The following Pass-Fail policy was approved by the Board of Regents for 
implementation beginning with the spring 1989 semester: 



1. To register for a course under the pass-fail option, an 
undergraduate must have completed 30 or more credit hours of 
college credit with a GPA of at least 2.0. At least 15 of these 
credit hours must have been completed at UMCP with a University 
of Maryland GPA of at least 2.0. 

2. Courses for which this option applies must be electives in the 
student's program. The courses may not be college, major, field of 
concentration, or general education program requirements. 

3. Only one course per semester may be registered for under the 
pass-fail option. 

4. No more than 12 semester hours of credit may be taken under the 
pass-fail option during a student's college career. 

5. Students may not choose this option when re-registering for a 
course. 

6. When registering under the pass-fail option, a course that is 
passed will count as hours in the student's record but will not be 
computed in the grade point average. A course that is failed will 
appear on the student's record and will be computed both in the 
overall average and the semester average. 

7. Students registering for a course under the pass-fail option are 
required to complete all regular course requirements. Their work 
will be evaluated by the instructor by the normal procedure for 
letter grades. The instructor will submit the normal grade. The 
grades A, B, C, or D will automatically be converted by the Office 
of Records and Registration to the grade P on the student's 
permanent record. The grade F will remain as given. The choice of 
grading option may be changed only during the schedule 
adjustment period for courses in which the student is currently 
registered. 

Incompletes. The mark of "I" is an exceptional mark that is an instructor 
option. It is given only to a student whose work in a course has been 
qualitatively satisfactory, when, because of illness or other circumstances 
beyond the student's control, he or she has been unable to complete some 
small portion of the work of the course. In no case will the mark "I" be 
recorded for a student who has not completed the major portion of the 
work of the course. 

1. The student will remove the "I" by completing work assigned by 
the instructor. It is the student's responsibility to request 
arrangements for completion of the work and to request that an 
Incomplete Contract be written. These arrangements must be 
documented in the Incomplete Contract, and signed by both the 
student and the instructor. 

2. The Incomplete Contract must be submitted to the dean of the 
college offering the course, and a copy forwarded to the Records 
Office, within six weeks after the grade submittal deadline or the 
"I" will convert to a grade of "F." A copy of the signed agreement 
should also be filed in the department office. 

3. All course work required by an Incomplete Contract must be 
completed by the time stipulated in the contract, usually the end 
of the next semester; but in any event, no later than one year. If 
the instructor is unavailable, the department chair will, upon 
request of the student, make the arrangements for the student to 
complete the course requirements. If the remaining work for the 
course as defined in the contract is not completed on schedule, 
the "I" will be converted to the grade indicated on the contract. 

4. Exceptions to the time period cited above may be granted by the 
student's dean upon the written request of the student if 
circumstances are deemed to warrant further delay. The new 
completion date must again be specified and agreed to in writing 
by the student and the dean. 

5. It is the responsibility of the instructor or the department chair 
concerned to return the appropriate supplementary grade report, 
both to the appropriate dean and to the Office of Records and 
Registration, upon completion of the conditions of the Incomplete 
Contract. 

6. The "I" cannot be removed through re-registration for the course or 
through the technique of "credit by examination." In any event this 
mark shall not be used in any computation of quality points or 
cumulative averages. 

Record Notations 

In addition to the above marks, there are provisions for other record or 
transcript notations that may be used based on university policy and 
individual circumstances. 

Duplicate course: Used to indicate two courses with the same course 
content. The second course is counted in the cumulative totals earned; 
both courses are counted in the cumulative attempted credit and in the 
calculation of grade point average unless an exception is made by the 
student's dean. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 35 



Non-applicable (Non-Appl): In all cases of transfer from one college to 
another at the University of Maryland at College Park, the dean of the 
receiving college, with the approval of the student, shall indicate which 
courses, if any, in the student's previous academic program are not 
applicable to his or her new program, and shall notify the Office of Records 
and Registration of the adjustments that are to be made in determining the 
student's progress toward a degree. Deletions may occur both in credits 
attempted and correspondingly in credits earned. This evaluation shall be 
made upon the student's initial entry into a new program, not thereafter. If 
a student transfers from one program to another, his or her record 
evaluation shall be made by the dean in the same way as if he or she were 
transferring colleges. If the student subsequently transfers to a third 
college, the dean of the third college shall make a similar initial 
adjustment; courses marked "nonapplicable" by the second dean may 
become applicable in the third program. 

Excluded Credit (Excl Crd): Excluded credit is noted when Academic 
Clemency has been granted. 

Campus Repeat Policy 

The following policies apply to ALL courses that may not be repeated for 
additional credit. 

1. The following students are required to follow the new repeat policy: 

a. All new freshmen who began at UMCP Fall 1990 and after. 

b. Transfer students from schools other than Maryland 
Community Colleges who began at UMCP Fall 1990 and after. 
This includes transfer students from another University of 
Maryland institution. 

2. There is a limit to the number of times a student may repeat a 
course. Students may have one repeat of any course in which they 
earned an A, B, C, D, F, P, S, W, I, NGR or Audit; they cannot be 
registered (after the schedule adjustment period) for any given 
course more than twice. A student's dean's office may grant an 
exception allowing an additional course repeat. In this case, 
students must present a plan for successfully completing the 
course. All attempts wJJi be counted toward the total limit for 
repeatable credits. 

3. Students may repeat no more than 18 credits. Additionally, if a 
student withdraws from aN courses during a semester, those 
courses are not included in this limit. 

4. The grade point average will include all attempts at a given course 
that result in a grade of A, B, C, D, or F. However, to help 
freshmen and transfer students adjust to the UMCP campus, the 
following two exceptions allow for the cumulative GPA to be 
calculated so that only the higher grade is included: 

a. When the repeated course was taken within the student's first 
semester at UMCP, or 

b. When the repeated course was taken within the student's first 
24 credit hours attempted (including transfer credits) or within 
the semester during which the student reached the 24th credit 
hour attempted. 

5. Any grade earned in prior attempts of a repeated course will 
appear on the student's transcript, regardless of whether the 
grade is dropped from, or included in, the cumulative grade point 
average. 

6. Repeat by transfer— If a student repeats by transfer a course that 
was taken before or during the semester in which the student 
reached 24 credits attempted (including transfer credits) and the 
transfer grade is higher, then the original grade in the course will 
be excluded from the GPA calculation. 

a. If the course was taken after the semester in which the 
student reached 24 credits attempted, the original grade 
remains in the GPA calculation. Special exceptions can be 
requested by the dean in unusual circumstances. 

Repeat Policy Priorto Fall 1990: 

The following students follow the old repeat policy: 

• Students who began at UMCP before the Fall 1990 semester 
(including students who enter UMCP for summer 1990). 

• Transfer students who began at a Maryland Community 
College before Fall 1990. 

• UMBC College of Engineering students who began before 
1990. 

The highest grade received in the repeated course is used to calculate the 
GPA. A student may repeat any course; however no student may be 
registered for a course more than three times. 

If a student repeats a course in which he or she has already earned a mark 



of A, B, C, D, P, orS, the subsequent attempt shall not increase the total 
hours earned toward the degree. Only the highest mark will be used in 
computation of the student's cumulative average. Under unusual 
circumstances, the student's dean may grant an exception to this policy. 

Academic Clemency Policy 

Undergraduate students returning to the University of Maryland at College 
Park after a separation of a minimum of five calendar years may petition 
the appropriate dean to have a number of previously earned grades and 
credits removed from the calculation of their cumulative grade point 
average. Up to 16 credits and corresponding grades from courses 
previously completed at the University of Maryland at College Park will be 
removed from calculation of the grade point average and will not be 
counted toward graduation requirements. The petition for clemency must 
be filed in the first semester of return to the institution. Approval is neither 
automatic or guaranteed. 

Proficiency Examination Programs 

The University of Maryland at College Park offers new, continuing, and 
returning students several opportunities to earn college credit by 
demonstrating achievement in a subject field through examination. College 
Park recognizes three proficiency examination programs for credit: 
Advanced Placement (AP), Departmental Proficiency Examination Program 
(Credit By Examination), and College Level Examination Program (CLEP). 
Undergraduate students may earn a total of up to one-half of the credits 
required for their degree through examination. Usually, this is no more than 
60 credits. Students are responsible for consulting with the appropriate 
dean or advisor about the applicability of any credits earned by examination 
to a specific degree program. Students should also seek assistance in 
determining which UMCP courses duplicate credits earned for an 
examination. Students will not receive credit for both passing an 
examination and completing an equivalent course. 

Advanced Placement (AP) Credit. For complete information about the 
applicability of AP exams and the assignment of credit, please see the 
Admission chapter of this catalog. 

Departmental Proficiency Examination (Credit by Examination). 

College Park Departmental Proficiency Examinations, customarily referred 
to as "credit by examination," are comparable to comprehensive final 
examinations in a course. Although the mathematics and foreign language 
departments receive the most applications for credit by examination, many 
departments will provide examinations for certain of their courses. Initial 
inquiry as to whether an examination in a specific course is available is 
best made at the academic department which offers the course in 
question. 

If an examination for a course is available, the department will provide 
information regarding time and place, type of examination, and material 
which might be helpful in preparing for the examination. An undergraduate 
who passes a departmental proficiency examination is given credit and 
quality points toward graduation in the amount regularly allowed in the 
course, provided such credits do not duplicate credit obtained by some 
other means. 

After making arrangements with the department, apply through the 
Undergraduate Advising Office, 1117 Hornbake Library, 314-8418. 

Policies governing credit by examination: 

1. The applicant must be formally admitted to the University of 
Maryland at College Park. Posting of credit earned, however, will 
be delayed until the student is registered. 

2. Departmental Proficiency Examinations may not be taken for 
courses in which the student has remained registered at the 
University of Maryland at College Park beyond the Schedule 
Adjustment Period with a transcript notation of "W." 

3. Departmental Proficiency Examinations may not be used to change 
grades, including Incompletes and Withdrawals. 

4. Application for credit-by-examination is equivalent to registration 
for the course; however, the following conditions apply: 

a. A student may cancel the application at any time prior to 
completion of the examination with no entry on his/her 
permanent record. (Equivalent to the schedule adjustment 
period.) 

b. The instructor makes the results of the examination available 
to the student prior to formal submission of the grade. Before 
final submission of the grade, the student may elect not to 



36 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



have this grade recorded. In this case, a mark of W is 
recorded. (Equivalent to the drop period.) 

c. No examination may be attempted more than twice. 

d. The instructor must certify on the report of the examination 
submitted to the Office of Records and Registration that 
copies of the examination questions (or identifying information 
in the case of standardized examinations), and the student's 
answers have been filed with the chair of the department 
offering the course. 

5. If accepted by the student (see 4.b, above), letter grades earned 
through credit by examination are entered on the student's 
transcript, and are used in computing his/her cumulative grade 
point average. A student may elect to take a "credit by 
examination" "Pass-Fail" only if the credit fulfills an elective in the 
student's degree program. No college, major, field of 
concentration, or general education program requirement may be 
taken under the pass-fail option. Please refer to the Pass-Fail 
policy under the "Records" section in this chapter. 

College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) 

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) recognizes college-level 
competence achieved outside the college classroom. Two types of CLEP 
tests are available: General Examinations, which cover the content of a 
broad field of study; and Subject Examinations, which cover the specific 
content of a college course. Credit can be earned and will be recognized by 
College Park for some CLEP General or Subject Examinations, provided 
satisfactory scores are attained. Credits earned under CLEP are not 
considered "residence" credit, but are treated as transfer credit. 

CLEP exams are administered at CLEP testing centers throughout the 
country. The University of Maryland at College Park is a CLEP Test Center 
(Test Center Code: 5814). To obtain an application or additional 
information, contact the CLEP Administrator in the Counseling Center, 
Room 0106A Shoemaker Hall, (314-7688), or write to CLEP, CN 6600, 
Princeton, N.J., 08541-6600. 

Students who want to earn credit through CLEP must request their official 
score reports to be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admission, Mitchell 
Building, University of Maryland, College Park, Md. 20742. (The UMCP 
Score Recipient Code is 5814.) 

Policies governing CLEP are as follows: 

1. A student must matriculate at College Park before CLEP credits 
are officially posted. The posting will not be done until a student 
has established a record. 

2. Each institution of the University of Maryland System establishes 
standards for acceptance of CLEP exemptions and credits. 
Students must check with the institution to which they will transfer 
to learn if they will lose, maintain, or gain credit. 

3. College Park will award credit for a CLEP examination 

(a) provided the examination was being accepted for credit here 
on the date the student took the examination, and 

(b) provided that the examination was not taken during a 
student's final 30 credits. The final 30 hours of credit are to 
be taken in residence, unless prior approval has been 
granted by the student's dean. 

4. Credit will not be given for both completing a course and passing 

an examination covering substantially the same material. 

5. Furthermore, credit will not be awarded for CLEP examinations if 
the student has previously completed more advanced courses in 
the same field. 

6. CLEP examinations posted on transcripts from other institutions 
will be accepted if the examination has been approved by College 
Park and the scores reported are equal to or higher than those 
required by this institution. If the transcript from the prior 
institution does not carry the scores, it will be the responsibility of 
the student to request Educational Testing Service to forward a 
copy of the official report to the Office of Admissions. 

College Park awards credits for CLEP Examinations only as indicated on the 
chart provided in this chapter (if an examination is not listed, it is not 
accepted for credit at this institution). 

If you have questions about the applicability of specific credit to your 
program, consult the list provided in this catalog or contact your Dean's 
Office. 



TRANSFER CREDIT 



(For Current UM CP Students) 

The Records Office posts all transfer credit that would be acceptable to any 
of the degree programs at the University of Maryland at College Park. The 
dean of the college in which the student is enrolled determines which 
transfer credits are applicable to the student's degree program. In general, 
credit from academic courses taken at institutions of higher education 
accredited by a regional accrediting association will transfer, provided that 
the course is completed with at least a grade of C and the course is similar 
in content and level to work offered at College Park. The title of courses 
accepted for transfer credit will be noted on the student's record; however, 
the grade will not. Grades from transferred courses are not included in the 
UMCP grade point average calculation. See the chapter on Admission in 
this catalog for additional information. 

Courses Taken at Other Institutions While Attending the University of 
M aryland at College Park 

1. Courses taken at another institution may not be credited toward 
a degree without approval in advance by the dean of the college 
from which the student expects a degree. The same rule applies 
to registration in the summer program of another institution. 
"Permission to Enroll in Another Institution" forms are available in 
the office of the student's dean. This form must be submitted and 
approved by the college for any course which will eventually be 
added to the College Park transcript. 

2. Courses taken at other University of M aryland Institutions 

For students who began their attendance at the University of 
Maryland at College Park in fall 1989 or later, all coursework 
taken at any University of Maryland System (UMS) institution will 
be posted as transfer credit. For all students who attended 
Coliege Park prior to fall 1989, courses taken at another 
University of Maryland Board of Regents institution (UMBC, UMAB, 
UMES, UMUC) prior to fall 1989 will be included in the cumulative 
GPA. Courses taken at any other institution may not be credited 
toward a degree without advance approval. See #1 above for 
information. 

3. UMS Concurrent Inter-Institutional Registration Program 
College Park undergraduate students participating in the UMS 
Concurrent Inter-Institutional Registration Program should obtain 
permission from their dean. Coursework counts as resident credit. 
Students participating in this program must be enrolled full time in 
a degree program at College Park for the semester in which these 
courses are taken. 

4. Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area 
Courses taken through the Consortium are considered to be 
resident credit. See above under "Consortium" and see the 
Schedule of Classes for information. 



Transfer Credit Center 

The Transfer Credit Center provides articulation information and assistance 
to students and transfer advisors. More information is available in the 
section on Transfer Admission in Chapter 1 of this catalog. 



REQUIREMENTS FOR RETENTION 

Academic retention is based solely on grade point average (GPA). The 
significance of the cumulative grade point average (cumulative GPA) varies 
according to the number of credits attempted. A minimum of 120 credits of 
successfully completed (not I, F, or W) course credits is required for 
graduation in any degree curriculum. 

Satisfactory P erform ance applies to those students with a cumulative GPA 
between 4.000 and 2.000. 

Semester Academic Honors (Dean's List) will be awarded to a student 
who completes within any given semester twelve or more credits (excluding 
courses with grades of P and S) with a semester GPA of 3.500 or higher. 
This notation will be placed on the individual's permanent record. 

Unsatisfactory Performance: Students with a cumulative GPA of less than 
2.000 fall into three categories: Unsatisfactory Performance, Academic 
Warning and Academic Dismissal. The notations Academic Warning and 
Academic Dismissal will be placed on the student's permanent record. The 
cumulative GPA that defines each of the categories varies according to the 
credit level as noted below:

Credit level: Courses with grades of A, B, C, F, P, S and transfer 
credit from other institutions, Advanced Placement, CLEP and 
other similar tests in which credit is given. 
Computation of GPA: GPA is computed by dividing the total 
number of quality points accumulated in courses for which a grade 
of A, B, C, D, or F has been assigned by the total number of 
credits attempted in those courses. Courses for which a mark of 
P, S, I or NGR has been assigned are not included in computing 
the GPA. Each letter grade has a numerical value: A=4; B=3; C=2; 
D=l; F=0. Multiplying this value by the number of credits for a 
particular course gives the number of quality points earned for 
that course. 

Students with an unsatisfactory performance for any semester will 
be urged in writing to consult their advisors. 
Students on academic warning will have this fact noted on their 
transcripts and will be urged in writing to consult with their 
advisors prior to the beginning of the next semester. Students 
who receive an academic warning in any semester will not be 
allowed either to add or drop courses or to register during the 
semester following the receipt of the academic warning without 
seeing an advisor. 

Any student with 60 credits or more attempted and who thereafter 
received academic warning for two consecutive semesters will be 
academically dismissed. Students who are academically 
dismissed will have this action entered on their transcript. 
Students transferring to UMCP will not be dismissed at the end of 
their first semester if they earn a GPA of 0.23 or above. (A student 
who would otherwise be subject to Academic Dismissal will 
receive an Academic Warning.) Thereafter, such a student will be 
subject to the normal standards of academic progress. This 
provision does not apply to students reinstated or readmitted to 
College Park. 

A student who has been academically dismissed and who is 
reinstated will be academically dismissed again if minimum 
academic standards are not met by the end of the first semester 
after reinstatement. (See Readmission and Reinstatement in the 
Admission chapter of this catalog.) 

Credits transferred, or earned during prior admissions terminating 
in academic dismissal or withdrawal and followed by readmission, 
will be applicable toward meeting credit requirements for a degree. 
Under unusual circumstances, the Faculty Petition Board may set 
more rigorous requirements for the semester in which a reinstated 
student returns, or may allow a lengthened period (not to exceed 
two semesters) to reach the minimum or set academic standards. 
Any appeal from the regulations governing academic warning or 
academic dismissal shall be directed to the Faculty Petition Board 
which shall be empowered to grant relief in unusual cases if the 
circumstances warrant such action. 

See Repeat Policy to determine the effect of repeated courses in 
calculation of GPA. 



Dismissal of Delinquent Students. The University reserves the right to 
request at any time the withdrawal of a student who cannot or does not 
maintain the required standard of scholarship, or whose continuance in the 
University would be detrimental to his or her health, or to the health of 
others, or whose conduct is not satisfactory to the authorities of the 
University. Additional information about the dismissal of delinquent 
students may be found in the Code of Student Conduct, Appendix C. 



GRADUATION AND DEGREE REQUIREMENTS 

The University of Maryland at College Park awards the following degrees: 
Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Landscape Architecture, Bachelor of Music, 
Bachelor of Science, Master of Applied Anthropology, Master of 
Architecture, Master of Arts, Master of Business Administration, Master of 
Education, Master of Fine Arts, Master of Library Science, Master of Music, 
Master of Public Management, Master of Public Policy, Master of Science, 
Doctor of Education, Doctor of Musical Arts, and Doctor of Philosophy. 
Students in specified two-year curricula may be awarded certificates. 



Each candidate for a degree or certificate must file a formal application 
with the Office of Records and Registration. The deadline for application is 
the end of the schedule adjustment period for the semester in which the 
student plans to graduate, or at the end of the first week of the second 
summer session for August degrees. 

In all cases, graduation applications must be filed at the beginning of the 
student's final semester before receiving a degree. If all degree 
requirements are not completed during the semester in which the 
graduation application was submitted, it is the responsibility of the student 
to file a new graduation application with the Office of Records and 
Registration at the beginning of a subsequent semester when all degree 
requirements maybe completed. 

Degree Requirements 

The requirements for graduation vary according to the character of work in 
the different colleges, schools, departments and academic units. It is the 
responsibility of the colleges, schools, departments and other academic 
units to establish and publish clearly defined degree requirements. 
Responsibility for knowing and meeting all degree requirements for 
graduation in any curriculum rests with the student. Specific degree 
requirements are listed in this catalog under the college and/ or department 
as appropriate. 

Each student should check with the proper academic authorities no later 
than the close of the junior year to ascertain his or her standing with 
respect to advancement toward a degree. For this purpose, each student 
should be sure to retain a copy of the semester grade reports issued by the 
Office of Records and Registration at the close of each semester. 

1 ) Residency requirem ent— Final 30-H our Rule 

a. All candidates for University of Maryland at College Park degrees 
should plan to take their final 30 credits in residence since the 
advanced work of their major study normally occurs in the last 
year of the undergraduate program. Included in these 30 
semester hours will be a minimum of 15 semester hours in 
courses numbered 300 or above, including at least 12 semester 
hours required in the major field (in curricula requiring such 
concentrations). 

b. A student who at the time of graduation will have completed 30 
hours in residence at the University of Maryland at College Park 
may, under unusual circumstances, be permitted to take a 
maximum of 8 of the final 30 credits of record, comprising no 
more than two courses, at another institution. In such cases, 
written permission must be obtained in advance from the dean 
of the academic unit from which the student expects to receive 
the degree. Exceptions beyond 8 credits and/ or two courses will 
be made only under highly unusual circumstances; requests for 
an exception must be made through the Dean's office to the 
Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. 

c. For students in the combined three-year, preprofessional 
programs, the final 30 hours of the 90-hour program at the 
University of Maryland at College Park must be taken in 
residence. 

2) Enrollment in Majors. A student must be enrolled in the major 
program from which he or she plans to graduate, when registering 
for the final 15 hours of the baccalaureate program. This 
requirement also applies to the third year of the combined, 
preprofessional degree programs. 

3) Credit Requirements. While several undergraduate curricula require 
more than 120 credits, no baccalaureate curriculum requires fewer 
than 120. No baccalaureate will be awarded in instances in which 
fewer than 120 credit hours have been earned. 

It is the responsibility of each student to familiarize himself or 
herself with the requirements of specific curricula. The student is 
urged to seek advice on these matters from the departments, 
colleges, or the Office of Undergraduate Studies. 

To earn a baccalaureate from the University of Maryland at College 
Park, a minimum of 30 credits must be taken in residence. 

4) Grade Point Average. A minimum cumulative 2.0 grade point 
average is required for graduation in all curricula. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 39 



SECOND MAJORS AND SECOND DEGREES 

Second majors 

A student who wishes to complete a second major concurrently with his or 
her primary major of record must obtain written permission in advance from 
the appropriate departments or programs and colleges. As early as 
possible, but in no case later than one full academic year before the 
expected date of graduation, the student must file with the department or 
programs involved and with the appropriate deans, formal programs 
showing the courses to be offered to meet requirements in each of the 
majors and supporting areas as well as those of the college and general 
education programs. In order to obtain approval, students must complete 
all of the requirements specified for both the primary and secondary major. 
Courses taken for one major may be counted as appropriate as part of the 
degree requirements for the general education programs. If two colleges 
are involved in the double major program, the student must designate 
which college will be responsible for the maintenance of records and 
certification of general education requirements. Final approval of a double 
major program must be obtained from each of the appropriate departments 
and college(s). 

Second Degrees Taken Simultaneously 

A student who wishes to receive two bachelor's degrees simultaneously 
must satisfactorily complete the regularly prescribed requirements of both 
degree programs and a minimum of 150 credits (180 credits if one of the 
degrees is in Special Education). At least 18 of the credits applied to the 
second degree must be in course work not applied to the requirements for 
the primary degree program. As early as possible, but in no case later than 
one full academic year before the expected date of graduation, the student 
must file with the department or programs involved, as well as with the 
appropriate deans, formal programs showing the courses to be offered to 
meet the major, supporting area, college, and general education programs. 
If two colleges are involved in the double degree program, the student must 
designate which college will be responsible for the maintenance of records 
and certification of general education requirements. Final approval of a 
double degree program must be obtained from each of the appropriate 
departments and college(s). 

Second Degrees Taken Sequentially 

A student who has completed the requirements for, and has received one 
baccalaureate and who wishes to earn a second degree from College Park 
must satisfactorily complete all of the prescribed requirements for the 
second degree and enough additional credits so that the total, including all 
applicable credits earned at College Park or elsewhere, is at least 150 
credits (180 credits if one of the degrees is in Special Education). At least 
18 of the credits applied to the second degree must be in course work not 
applied to the requirements for the primary degree program. In no case will 
a second baccalaureate be awarded to a student who has not completed a 
minimum of 30 credits in residence at College Park. 



COMMENCEMENT HONORS 

Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, and Cum Laude are the 
commencement honors for excellence in scholarship. Honors are awarded 
to students with a GPA equal to the highest two percent (Summa), the next 
highest three percent (Magna), and the following five percent (Cum Laude) 
of the GPA distribution used in calculations for that semester. The GPA 
distribution shall be computed each semester from the GPAs of the three 
preceding classes of the student's degree-granting unit. To be eligible for 
this recognition, at least 60 semester hours must be earned at or 
transferred with a grade to College Park. No more than 6 credits taken 
pass/ fail or satisfactory/ fail shall count toward the 60-hour minimum. No 
student with an average less than 3.3 will be considered for a 
commencement honor. Because grades for a term generally are officially 
recorded after the term's graduation day, computation of the student's GPA 
will not include grades for courses taken during the student's final 
semester at College Park. However, the hours taken during that semester 
will apply toward the 60-hour requirement. 



to the community is considered. Election is held twice a year, once in the 
fall and once in the spring semester. 

The process for election to Phi Beta Kappa involves a review in November 
for those who graduated the previous August or those who will graduate in 
December, and a review in March for those graduating in May. The review is 
conducted by a select committee of faculty members representing the 
humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The committee reviews 
transcripts of all juniors and seniors with qualifying grade point averages. 
Whether a student qualifies for membership in Phi Beta Kappa depends on 
the quality, depth and breadth of the student's record in liberal education 
courses. The final decision for election rests with the resident faculty 
members of Phi Beta Kappa. There is no application procedure for election 
to Phi Beta Kappa (see #3 below for possible exception). 

Requirements for selection to membership in Phi Beta Kappa at the UMCP 
campus chapter include: 

1. Grade Point Average: For seniors a grade point average of at least 
3.5 overall as well as in all liberal arts and sciences courses taken. 
For juniors the minimum grade point average is 3.75. 

2. Residence: At least 60 credit hours must be taken at UMCP. 

3. Liberal Courses: For seniors, at least 90 credit hours in courses in 
the liberal arts and sciences (where "liberal" courses are to be 
distinguished from professional or technical courses), at least 45 of 
which must be taken at UMCP. For juniors, at least 75 total credit 
hours must be completed, at least 60 of which are in courses in the 
liberal arts and sciences; of these, at least 45 must be taken at 
UMCP. 

4. Required courses: One semester of mathematics, which must be 
fulfilled by college level credit hours (including AP credit), and two 
college semesters of a foreign language at the elementary level, or 
above. The language requirement may also be satisfied by 
completion of four years of one language other than English at the 
high school level or above, or the equivalent. Students with such a 
foreign language background who wish to be considered for 
admission to Phi Beta Kappa should notify the Phi Beta Kappa 
office in writing and provide the appropriate documentation (such as 
a high school transcript) prior to the month of consideration. 

5. Distribution: The credit hours presented for Phi Beta Kappa must 
contain at least nine liberal credit hours in each of the three 
following areas: a) arts and humanities, b) behavioral and social 
sciences, c) natural sciences and mathematics (including a 
laboratory science course). The courses in at least two of the three 
required areas must be completed at UMCP. Students with more 
challenging courses and moderately high grade point averages are 
preferred by the committee to those with higher grade point 
averages but a narrow range of courses. Minimal qualifications in 
more than one area may preclude election to Phi Beta Kappa. 

Recommended criteria include: 

1. Regular grades (rather than pass/fail) in (a) mathematics and 
foreign language courses, and (b) distribution areas in which the 
number of courses taken is more than the minimum. 

2. Some traditional social sciences and humanities courses that 
require written essays and papers. (Note that internships may be 
counted as professional courses and not as liberal courses.) 

3. Courses in at least two of the required areas to be taken at the 
College Park campus, especially if courses are transferred from 
other institutions without chapters of Phi Beta Kappa. 

Meeting the above requirements does not guarantee election to Phi Beta 
Kappa. The judgment of the resident faculty members of Phi Beta Kappa on 
the quality, depth, and breadth of the student's record is the deciding 
factor in every case. 

Any questions about criteria for election to Phi Beta Kappa (including 
equivalency examinations in foreign languages) should be directed to the 
Phi Beta Kappa Office, Room 0201 Energy Research Building, 405-7369. 



Election to Phi Beta Kappa 

Organized in 1776, Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most widely 
respected academic honorary society in the United States. Invitation to 
membership is based on outstanding scholastic achievement in studies of 
the liberal arts and sciences. Student members are chosen entirely on the 
basis of academic excellence; neither extracurricular leadership nor service

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND AT COLLEGE PARK 
CODE OF ACADEMIC INTEGRITY (Approved by 
the Campus Senate February 13, 1989) 

Amended effective Fall 1994 

Introduction 

The University is an academic community. Its fundamental purpose is the 
pursuit of knowledge. Like all other communities, the University can 
function properly only if its members adhere to clearly established goals 
and values. Essential to the fundamental purpose of the University is the 
commitment to the principles of truth and academic honesty. Accordingly, 
The Code of Academic Integrity is designed to ensure that the principle of 
academic honesty is upheld. While all members of the University share 
this responsibility, The Code of Academic Integrity is designed so that 
special responsibility for upholding the principle of academic honesty lies 
with the students. 

Definitions 

1. ACADEMIC DISHONESTY: any of the following acts, when committed by 
a student, shall constitute academic dishonesty: 

(a) CHEATING: intentionally using or attempting to use unauthorized 
materials, information, or study aids in any academic exercise. 

(b) FABRICATION: intentional and unauthorized falsification or 
invention of any information or citation in an academic exercise. 

(c) FACILITATING ACADEMIC DISHONESTY: intentionally or knowingly 
helping or attempting to help another to violate any provision of 
this Code. 

(d) PLAGIARISM: intentionally or knowingly representing the words or 
ideas of another as one's own in any academic exercise. 

Responsibility to Report Academic Dishonesty 

2. Academic dishonesty is a corrosive force in the academic life of a 
university. It jeopardizes the quality of education and depreciates the 
genuine achievements of others. It is, without reservation, a 
responsibility of all members of the campus community to actively deter 
it. Apathy or acquiescence in the presence of academic dishonesty is 
not a neutral act. Histories of institutions demonstrate that a laissez- 
faire response will reinforce, perpetuate, and enlarge the scope of such 
misconduct. Institutional reputations for academic dishonesty are 
regrettable aspects of modern education. These reputations become 
self-fulfilling and grow, unless vigorously challenged by students and 
faculty alike. 

All members of the University community— students, faculty, and staff- 
share the responsibility and authority to challenge and make known acts 
of apparent academic dishonesty. 

Honor Statement 

3. Letters informing both graduate and undergraduate students of their 
acceptance at the University, as well as appointment letters for 
members of the faculty, shall contain a short statement concerning the 
role of the Student Honor Council, as well as the obligation of all 
members of the University of Maryland-College Park community to 
promote the highest standards of academic integrity. 

Self-Referral 

4. Students who commit acts of academic dishonesty may demonstrate 
their renewed commitment to academic integrity by reporting 
themselves in writing to the Chair of the Honor Council. Students may 
not exercise the self-referral option more than once during their 
enrollment at the University. 

5. If an investigation by the Honor Council Executive Committee or 
designee reveals that no member of the University had a suspicion of a 
self-referring student's act of academic dishonesty, then the student 
will not be charged with academic dishonesty, or left with a disciplinary 
record. Instead, the Student Honor Council will notify the Dean or a 
designee and the faculty member where the incident occurred. The 
Dean or designee shall then convene a conference between the 
student and the faculty member. The purpose of this conference will be 
to ensure that the self-referral provisions of this Code are followed, not 
to levy a sanction, or to create a disciplinary record. The Dean will 
notify the Student Honor Council in writing of the outcome of the 
conference. 111 

6. In all cases where a student self-referral is accepted, the student will 
be required to successfully complete the non-credit integrity seminar 
offered by the Student Honor Council. Also, the student will have any 



grade for the academic exercise in question reduced one letter grade, 
or to an "F" or a zero, in the discretion of the faculty member involved. 

7. If the Honor Council Executive Committee or designee determines that 
a suspicion of academic dishonesty existed at the time the student 
admitted the act, then the matter will be resolved in accordance with 
the procedures specified in this code for resolving academic dishonesty 
allegations. The student's admission may be considered a mitigating 
circumstance for purposes of sanctioning. 

Procedures: Reporting and Informal Resolution 

8. Any member of the University community who has witnessed an 
apparent act of academic dishonesty, or has information that 
reasonably leads to the conclusion that such an act has occurred or 
has been attempted, has the responsibility to inform the Honor Council 
promptly in writing. 

9. if the Honor Council determines that a report of academic dishonesty is 
supported by reasonable cause 1 , the case shall be referred to the 
Dean of the College where the incident occurred. 1 The Dean or 
designee, (who must not be the referring faculty member), will inform 
the accused student in writing of the charges, and shall offer hirrV her 
an opportunity for an informal meeting to review the case. : The faculty 
of the course may be included in the meeting. The Dean or designee 
shall also provide the accused student with a copy of this Code, and a 
statement of procedural rights approved by the Honor Council 1 , which 
shall include the right of the student to request the presence of a 
member of the Honor Council at the informal meeting. 

10. If the accused student has no prior record of academic dishonesty or 
serious disciplinary misconduct 1 , the Dean or designee and the 
student may reach an agreement concerning how the case should be 
resolved. The standard "XF" grade penalty will normally be imposed if it 
is agreed by the student that he/ she committed an act of academic 
dishonesty. Any other sanction agreed upon by the student and the 
Dean or designee will constitute a recommendation to the Honor 
Council, and must be supported by a written statement signed by the 
student and the dean or designee. The written statement will be 
reviewed by the Honor Council , which shall inform both the student 
and the Dean or designee of the sanction imposed. 

Procedures: Resolution by an Honor Review 

11. Cases not resolved in accordance with Part 10 of this Code shall result 
in an Honor Review. 1 An Honor Review is conducted by an Honor 
Board. The Board is comened by the Student Honor Council. It will 
normally consist of six persons, five of whom will be voting members. 
Determinations of the Honor Board will be by a majority vote (three 
votes or more). Honor Boards are selected as follows: 

(a) Three students selected by the Student Honor Council from among 
its members. In the event the student accused of academic 
dishonesty is a graduate student, then at least two of the student 
members shall be graduate students. 

(b)Two faculty members selected in accordance with procedures 
established by the Vice President for Academic Affairs. In the 
event the student accused of academic dishonesty is a graduate 
student, then at least one of the persons selected shall be a 
regular member of the Graduate Faculty. 

(c)The Honor Board shall have one non-voting member, who shall 
serve as the Presiding Officer. The Presiding Officer may be a 
student, faculty, or staff member of the University. The Presiding 
Officer will be selected by the Director of J udicial Programs. 

12. If the Vice President for Academic Affairs determines that the Student 
Honor Council or an Honor Board cannot be convened within a 
reasonable period of time after an accusation is made, the Vice 
President or a designee may review the case. If there is reasonable 
cause to believe that an act of academic dishonesty has occurred or 
has been attempted, the Vice President or designee will convene an ad 
hoc Honor Board by selecting and appointing two students and one 
faculty/ staff member. Whenever possible, student members of ad hoc 
Honor Boards shall be members of the Student Honor Council. A non- 
voting presiding officer shall be appointed by the Director of Judicial 
Programs. 

13. The Campus Advocate or a designee shall serve as the Complainant at 
an Honor Review. The principal responsibilities of the Complainant are: 

(a) to prepare a formal Charge of Academic Dishonesty, and deliver it 
to the student and the Honor Board. The student will be deemed 
to have received such notice on the date of personal delivery, or if 
certified mail is used, on the date of delivery at the most recent 
address provided to the University by the student; 

(b) to present the evidence and analysis upon which the Charge is 
based to the Honor Board during the Honor Review; 

(c) to perform such other duties as may be requested by the Student 
Honor Council or the Honor Board. 

14. The Charge of Academic Dishonesty serves to give a student a 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 41 



reasonable understanding of the act and circumstances to be 
considered by the Honor Board, thereby placing the student in a 
position to contribute in a meaningful way to the inquiry. It also serves 
to provide initial focus to that inquiry. It is not, however, a technical or 
legal document, and is not analogous to an indictment or other form of 
process. The charge may be modified as the discussion proceeds, as 
long as the accused student is accorded a reasonable opportunity to 
prepare a response. 

15. The purpose of an Honor Review is to explore and investigate the 
incident giving rise to the appearance of academic dishonesty, and to 
reach an informed conclusion as to whether or not academic 
dishonesty occurred. In keeping with the ultimate premise and 
justification of academic life, the duty of all persons at an Honor 
Review is to assist in a thorough and honest exposition of all related 
facts. 

The basic tenets of scholarship— full and willing disclosure, accuracy of 
statement, and intellectual integrity in hypothesis, in argument and in 
conclusion— must always take precedence over the temptation to gain 
a particular resolution of the case. An Honor Review is not in the 
character of a criminal or civil legal proceeding. It is not modeled on 
these adversarial systems; nor does it serve the same social functions. 
It is not a court or tribunal. Rather, it is an academic process unique to 
the community of scholars that comprise a university. 

16. The role of the Presiding Officer is to exercise impartial control over the 
Honor Review in order to achieve an equitable, orderly, timely and 
efficient process. The Presiding Officer is authorized to make all 
decisions and rulings as are necessary and proper to achieve that end, 
including such decisions and rulings as pertain to scheduling and to 
the admissibility of evidence. If in the judgment of the Presiding Officer 
there is reasonable cause to question the impartiality of a board 
member, the Presiding Officer will so inform the Honor Council, which 
will reconstitute the board. 

17. The Presiding Officer or designee will select the date, time and place 
for the Honor Review, and notify the student in writing a minimum of 
ten (10) days prior to the review. 

18. The sequence of an Honor Review is necessarily controlled by the 
nature of the incident to be investigated and the character of the 
information to be examined. It thus lies within the judgment of the 
Presiding Officer to fashion the most reasonable approach. The 
following steps, however, have been found to be efficient, and are 
generally recommended: 

(a) The Complainant, and then the student or the student's advocate, 
summarize the matter before the Honor Board, including any 
relevant information or arguments. 

(b)The Complainant, and then the student, present and question 
persons having knowledge of the incident, and offer documents or 
other materials bearing on the case. The Complainant, the student 
and all members of the Honor Board may question any person 
giving testimony. 

(c) The members of the Honor Board may ask the Complainant or the 
student any relevant questions. The members may also request 
any additional material or the appearance of other persons they 
deem appropriate. 

(d)The Complainant, and then the student or the student's advocate, 
may make brief closing statements. 

(e)The Honor Board meets privately to discuss the case, and reaches 
a finding by a majority vote. 

(f)The Honor Board will not conclude that a student has attempted or 
engaged in an act of academic dishonesty unless, after considering 
all the information before it, a majority of members believe that 
such a conclusion is supported by clear and convincing evidence. If 
this is not the case, the Honor Board will dismiss the charge of 
academic dishonesty. 

(g) If the Honor Board finds the student has engaged in an act of 
academic dishonesty, both the Complainant and the student or the 
student's advocate, may recommend an appropriate sanction. 
Pertinent documents and other material may be offered. The Honor 
Board then meets privately to reach a decision, which must be by 
a majority vote of its members. 

(h)The Presiding Officer will provide the Complainant and the student 
with a written report of the Honor Board's determination. 

19. Role of Advocate and Advisor: 

(a) The accused student may be assisted by an advocate, who must 
be a registered, degree-seeking student at the University. The role 
of the advocate will be limited to: 

I. Making brief opening and closing statements, as well as 
comments on appropriate sanction. 

II. Suggesting relevant questions which the Presiding Officer may 
direct to a witness. 

III. Providing confidential advice to the student. 

(b) The accused student may also be accompanied by an advisor, who 
may be an attorney. The role of the advisor during an Honor 



Review will be limited to providing confidential advice only to the 
accused student, not the advocate, provided such advice is given 
without interfering with or disrupting the Honor Review. 

Even if accompanied by an advocate and/ or an advisor, the 
student must take an active and constructive role in the Honor 
Review. In particular, the student must fully cooperate with the 
Honor Board and respond to its inquiries without undue intrusion 
by an advocate or advisor. 

In consideration of the limited role of advocates and advisors, and 
of the compelling interest of the University to expeditiously 
conclude the matter, the work of an Honor Board will not, as a 
general practice, be delayed due to the unavailability of an 
advocate or an advisor. 

(c) Honor Reviews may be tape recorded or transcribed. If a recording 
or transcription is not made, the decision of the Honor Board must 
include a summary of the testimony and shall be sufficiently 
detailed to permit review on appeal. 

(d) Presence at an Honor Review lies within the judgment of the 
Presiding Officer. An Honor Review is a confidential investigation. It 
requires a deliberative and candid atmosphere, free from 
distraction. Accordingly, it is not open to the public or other 
"interested" persons. However, at the student's request, the 
Presiding Officer will permit a student's parents or spouse to 
observe and may permit a limited number of additional observers. 
The Presiding Officer may cause to be removed from the Honor 
Review any person who disrupts or impedes the investigation, or 
who fails to adhere to the rulings of the Presiding Officer. The 
Presiding Officer may direct that persons, other than the accused 
student or the Complainant, who are to be called upon to provide 
information, be excluded from the Honor Review except for that 
purpose. The members of the Honor Board may conduct private 
deliberations at such times and places as they deem proper. 

(e) It is the responsibility of the person desiring the presence of a 
witness before an Honor Board to ensure that the witness 
appears. If necessary, a subpoena may be requested, in 
accordance with Part 32 (b) of the Code of Student Conduct 151 . 
Because experience has demonstrated that the actual appearance 
of an individual is of greater value than a written statement, the 
latter is discouraged and should not be used unless the individual 
cannot or reasonably should not be expected to appear. Any 
written statement must be dated, signed by the person making it, 
and witnessed by a University employee or by a person approved 
by the Director of J udicial Programs (e.g., a notary). The work of an 
Honor Board will not, as a general practice, be delayed due to the 
unavailability of a witness. 

(f) An Honor Review is not a trial. Formal rules of evidence commonly 
associated with a civil or criminal trial may be counterproductive in 
an academic imestigatory proceeding, and shall not be applied. 
The Presiding Officer will accept for consideration all matters which 
reasonable persons would accept as having probative value in the 
conduct of their affairs. Unduly repetitious, irrelevant, or personally 
abusive material should be excluded. 

20. If the Honor Board finds that an attempt or act of academic dishonesty 
did occur, it shall impose an appropriate sanction. The normal sanction 
shall be a grade of "XF" in the course, but the Honor Board may 
impose a lesser or more severe sanction. Generally, acts involving 
advance planning, falsification of papers, conspiring with others, or 
some actual or potential harm to other students will merit a severe 
sanction, i.e. suspension or expulsion, even for a first offense. An 
attempt to commit an act shall be punished to the same extent as the 
consummated act. 

Appeals 

21. In cases where an Honor Board has determined the appropriate 
sanction to be less than suspension or expulsion, both the finding of 
responsibility and the sanction(s) of an Honor Board will be final, 
unless, within 15 business days after the Board's written decision is 
sent to the student, and the Dean of the college where the incident 
occurred, the student or the Dean or designee notifies the Honor 
Council in writing of the intention of filing an appeal. The student may 
appeal both the findings and the penalty. The Dean or designee may 
appeal the penalty only. 

A written brief supporting any appeal must be submitted in writing to the 
Student Honor Council Executive Committee within an additional ten 
business days. The Executive Committee or designee will provide the 
opposing party a reasonable opportunity to make a written response. 

22. Any member of the Executive Committee who has taken part in an 
Honor Review that is the subject of an appeal is not eligible to hear the 
appeal. Substitute Executive Committee members may be selected 
from experienced Honor Council members, appointed in accordance 



42 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



with Honor Council bylaws. 

23. Decisions of the Executive Committee will be by majority vote, based 
upon the record of the original proceeding and upon written briefs. De 
novo hearings shall not be conducted. 

24. Deference shall be given by the Executive Committee to the 
determinations of Honor Boards. 

(a) sanctions may only be reduced if found to be grossly 
disproportionate to the offense. Likewise, upon an appeal by a 
Dean or designee, sanctions maybe increased only if the original 
sanction is deemed to be grossly disproportionate to the offense. 

(b) cases may be remanded to a new Honor Board if specified 
procedural errors or errors in interpretation of this Code were so 
substantial as to effectively deny the accused student a fair 
hearing, or if new and significant evidence became available that 
could not have been discovered by a diligent respondent before or 
during the original Honor Board hearing. On remand, no indication 
or record of the previous hearing will be introduced or provided to 
the members of the new Honor Board, except to impeach 
contradictory testimony, at the discretion of the presiding officer. 

(c) Cases may be dismissed only if the finding is held to be arbitrary 
and capricious. 

25. If an Honor Board determines to suspend or expel a student, then the 
student may submit a written appeal to the Campus Senate Adjunct 
Committee on Student Conduct, in accordance with procedures set 
forth in Parts 42-47 of the Code of Student Conduct. 

26. Regardless of whether an appeal is filed, suspension requires approval 
by the Vice President for Student Affairs, and may be altered, deferred, 
or withheld. Expulsion requires approval by the President, and may be 
altered, deferred, or withheld. 

The Grade of "XF" 

27. The grade of "XF" is intended to denote a failure to accept and exhibit 
the fundamental value of academic honesty. The grade "XF" shall be 
recorded on the student's transcript with the notation "failure due to 
academic dishonesty". The grade "XF" shall be treated in the same 
way as an "F" for the purposes of Grade Point Average, course 
repeatability, and determination of academic standing. 

28. No student with an "XF" on the student's transcript shall be permitted 
to represent the University in any extracurricular activity, or run for or 
hold office in any student organization which is allowed to use 
University facilities, or which receives University funds. 

29. The student may file a written petition to the Student Honor Council to 
have the grade of "XF" removed and permanently replaced with the 
grade of "F". The decision to remove the grade of "XF" and replace it 
with an "F" shall rest in the discretion and judgment of a majority of a 
quorum of the Council; provided that: 

(a) at the time the petition is received, at least twelve months shall 
have elapsed since the grade of "XF" was imposed; and, 

(b) at the time the petition is received, the student shall have 
successfully completed a non-credit seminar on academic integrity, 
as administered by the Office of Judicial Programs; or, for the 
person no longer enrolled at the University, an equivalent activity 
as determined by the Office of Judicial Programs; and, 

(c) the Office of Judicial Programs certifies that to the best of its 
knowledge the student has not been found responsible for any 
other act of academic dishonesty or similar disciplinary offense at 
the University of Maryland or another institution. 

30. Prior to deciding a petition, the Honor Council will review the record of 
the case and consult with the Director of Judicial Programs. Generally, 
the grade of "XF" ought not to be removed if awarded for an act of 
academic dishonesty requiring significant premeditation. If the "XF" 
grade is removed, records of the incident may be voided in accordance 
with Parts 47 and 48 of the Code of Student Conduct. The decision of 
the Honor Council shall not be subject to subsequent Honor Council 
review for four years, unless the Honor Council specifies an earlier date 
on which the petition may be reconsidered. Honor Council 
determinations pertaining to the removal of the "XF" grade penalty may 
be appealed to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. If the Vice 
President removes the grade of "XF" from the student's transcript, the 
Vice President shall provide written reasons to the Honor Council. 

The Student Honor Council 

31. There shall be a Student Honor Council. The Honor Council is 
composed of qualified graduate and undergraduate students in good 
academic standing, normally appointed in the Spring for the following 
academic year, and who may each be reappointed for additional one- 
year terms.™ 

32. The members of the Honor Council are appointed by a committee 
consisting of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Vice 
President for Student Affairs, the Chair of the Graduate Student 
Association, the President of the Student Government Association, and 



the Chair of the Honor Council. 

33. All council members are subject to the training and conduct 
requirements of Parts 24 and 25 of the Code of Student Conduct. 

34. The Student Honor Council has the following responsibilities and 
authority 

(a) To increase awareness throughout the campus of the importance 

of academic integrity. 
(b)To develop bylaws subject to approval by the University for legal 

sufficiency and consistency with the requirements of this Code of 

Academic Integrity, and the Code of Student Conduct. 
(c)To designate from its members students to serve as members of 

Honor Boards as specified in this Code. 

(d) To consider petitions for the removal of the grade of "XF" from 
University records in accordance with Part 29 of this Code. 

(e) To receive complaints or reports of academic dishonesty from any 
source. 

(f)To assist in the design and teaching of the non-credit seminar on 
academic integrity and moral development, as determined by the 
Director of Judicial Programs, 
(g) To advise and consult with faculty and administrative officers on 

matters pertaining to academic integrity at the University. 
(h)To issue an annual report to the Campus Senate on academic 
integrity standards, policies, and procedures, including 
recommendations for appropriate changes. 
35. The campus administration shall provide an appropriate facility, 
reserved for the primary use of the Honor Council, and suitable for the 
conduct of hearings. Clerical and secretarial assistance will also be 
provided. 

Future Self Governance 

36. Insofar as academic dishonesty is most immediately injurious to the 
student body, and because the student body is in a unique position to 
challenge and deter it, it is the intent of the University that ultimately 
this Code will evolve into one where the provisions are marked by 
complete student administration. 

In the Spring 1996 semester, the Campus Senate Adjunct Committee 
on Student Conduct shall conduct an open hearing to review the Code 
and its administration. Recommendations for change, as needed, shall 
be proposed in accordance with the rules of the Senate. 

Terms 

AD HOC HONOR BOARD-board consisting of two students and one faculty 

member appointed by the Vice President for Academic Affairs, and a 

Presiding Officer appointed by the Director of Judicial Programs.

GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS 



CORE LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES STUDIES PROGRAM (CORE) 
General Education Program and Requirements 

2130 Mitchell Building, 405-9359 

Associate Provost and Dean for Undergraduate Studies: Robert L. Hampton 
1128 Main Administration Building, 405-9354 

A liberal education is at the heart of a civil society. 

—A. Bartlett Giamatti, 

former President of Yale University and Commissioner of Baseball 

A strong liberal education is critical for the development of effective leaders for the 21st century. 

— Robert L. Hampton, 

Associate Provost and Dean for Undergraduate Studies, University of Maryland 

To earn a baccalaureate at the University of Maryland at College Park, all students complete both a major course of study and a 
campus-wide general education program. 

The Purpose of General Education 

Participation in a democratic society requires more than the central instruction provided by one major field of study. In our world 
of rapid economic, social, and technological change, a strong and broadly-based education is essential. 

General education helps students achieve the intellectual integration and awareness they need to meet challenges in their 
personal, social, political, and professional lives. General education courses introduce the great ideas and controversies in 
human thought and experience. These courses provide the breadth, perspective, and rigor that allow UMCP graduates to claim 
to be "educated people." 

Most Americans change their careers three times during their lifetime. A solid general education provides a strong foundation 
for the life-long learning that makes career-change goals attainable. 

General Education at UM CP = CORE Liberal Arts and Sciences Studies 

• CORE makes up about one-third of your undergraduate courses. 

• CORE helps you choose or change your major and the shape of your whole life by introducing you to new ways of 

viewing yourself and the world around you. 

• CORE offers one of the best opportunities you will ever have to explore different fields of study. 

Get the Most Out of CORE 

•PLAN ahead and see an academic advisor regularly, 

•INVEST in yourself; select CORE courses that will add to your understanding and appreciation of social, cultural, 

national, and international issues in the years ahead. 
•EXPLORE the wide range of opportunities offered by the university as well as the speakers, events, theatres, 

museums, galleries, libraries, and many more general education resources outside the classroom. 



The Core Liberal Arts and Sciences Studies Program (CORE) has been the required general 
education program at UMCP since Fall 1990. (See "Who Completes CORE.") 



uenerai Lducation Programs 4b 



CORE Liberal Arts and Sciences Studies Program (CORE) 



The CORE Program strategically builds a sound skill and knowledge base over the student's four years of baccalaureate study and represents a third of the 
total academic work completed for graduation. 

At UMCP, the CORE Program has four major components: 

FUNDAMENTAL STUDIES build competence and confidence in basic writing and mathematics. Mastery of these basics greatly enhances success both during 
and after college. Students begin fulfilling Fundamental Studies requirements in their first year at UMCP. 

DISTRIBUTIVE STUDIES introduce broad areas of learning in many disciplines. Through these courses, students explore different kinds of knowledge and the 
very nature of scholarship in the humanities, arts, natural sciences, mathematics, social sciences, and history. Students generally pursue Distributive Studies 
in the first two years of their coursework. 

ADVANCED STUDIES allow students to enhance their degree and strengthen their critical thinking and writing skills by taking two upper-level courses outside 
their major after 56 credits. Students may substitute an approved CORE Capstone course in their major (after 86 credits) or a senior or honors thesis for one 
of these two courses. 

HUMAN CULTURAL DIVERSITY encourages all members of our diverse undergraduate community to learn about attitudes and cultures different from their 
own. Students may complete the Cultural Diversity requirement at anytime before graduation.

CHAPTER 6 



THE COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS 



COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE (AGRI) 

1224 Symons Hall, 405-2080 

Professor and Dean: Thomas A. Fretz 

NOTE: Course requirements for the College of Agriculture are currently 
under review. See your advisor to determine the courses you must take 
to fulfill the requirements of your program. 

The College of Agriculture offers a diversity of academic programs that 
apply science, management, and engineering to improve the world in which 
we live and work. At College Park, feeding the world population, developing 
sound environmental practices and policies, understanding animal and 
plant biology, and the profitable management of agribusinesses are all vital 
concerns of the College. Integrating the use and protection of natural 
resources with the production of a safe and abundant food supply is the 
challenge facing students. Contemporary subjects like genetic engineering, 
international trade and policy, dietetics, nutrition, and landscape 
architecture have joined the disciplines of crop and animal sciences 
(including pre-veterinary medicine) in the curricula. All undergraduates have 
an opportunity to work closely with faculty in state-of-the-art facilities 
including a new agricultural engineering and animal sciences building, a 
dairy processing pilot plant, and a plant sciences building that contains 
landscape architecture design studios. Nearby resources such as the U.S. 
Department of Agriculture's National Research Center, Maryland 
Cooperative Extension Service, the National Institutes of Health, the 
Smithsonian Institution, Maryland's Departments of Agriculture and Natural 
Resources, and the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center enhance teaching, 
research, internship, and career opportunities for students. 

Learning opportunities are strengthened through student involvement in 
such co-curricular activities as the College Honors Program, career 
programs, leadership workshops, and student clubs and organizations. 
Students have a faculty advisor who assists them in selecting courses to 
meet their individual needs. Graduates find careers such as agribusiness 
managers, dieticians, food scientists, engineers, park managers, land use 
planners, sales representatives, stock and commodity brokers, or lawyers 
specializing in environmental issues. Others work at government and 
industry research laboratories, hospitals, fish and wildlife programs, public 
health departments and large production operations. Many graduates 
pursue advanced study in veterinary or graduate schools. 

The College of Agriculture has the following programs of study: 

• Agricultural and Resource Economics-Business management; 
Environmental and Resource Policy; Farm Production; Food Production; 
International Agriculture; and Political Process 

• Agronomy-Conservation of Soil, Water, and the Environment; Crops 
Science; Soil Science; and Turf and Urban Agronomy 

• Animal Sciences-Animal Management and Industry; Avian Business; 
Laboratory Animal Management; and Sciences 

• Biological Resources Engineering 

• General Agricultural Sciences 

• Horticulture-Landscape Management; Horticultural Production; and 
Horticultural Science 

• Institute of Applied Agriculture (2 -year program) 

• Landscape Architecture 



• Natural Resources Management-Environmental Education/ Park 
Management; Land and Water Resource Management; and Plant and 
Wildlife Resource Management 

• Nutrition and Food Science-Dietetics; Food Science; and Nutrition 

• Combined Degree: College of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine 

Advantage of Location and Facilities 

Educational opportunities in the College of Agriculture are enhanced by the 
proximity of several research units of the federal government. Teaching and 
research activities in the College are conducted with the cooperation of 
scientists and professional people in government positions. Of particular 
interest are the Agricultural Research Center at Beltsville, the National 
Agricultural Library, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Headquarters in 
Washington, D.C. 

Instruction in the basic biological and physical sciences, social sciences 
and engineering principles is conducted in well-designed classrooms and 
laboratories. The application of basic principles to practical situations is 
demonstrated for the student in numerous ways. For example, modern 
greenhouses are available for teaching and research on a wide variety of 
plants, plant pests, and crop cultural systems. Dairy and beef cattle and 
flocks of poultry are available for teaching and research purposes. 

In addition to on-campus facilities, several operating research farms, 
located in central, western, and southern Maryland and on the Eastern 
Shore, support the educational programs in agriculture by providing 
locations where important crops, animals, and poultry can be grown and 
maintained under practical and research conditions. 

Requirements for Admission 

For students entering the College of Agriculture it is recommended that 
their high school preparatory course include: English, 4 units; mathematics, 
3 units; biological and physical sciences, 3 units; and history or social 
sciences, 2 units. Four units of mathematics should be elected by students 
who plan to major in agricultural engineering. The Landscape Architecture 
major is a limited enrollment program (LEP). See the Admissions chapter in 
this catalog for general LEP admission policies. 



Degree Requirements 



Students graduating from the college must complete at least 120 credits 
with an average of 2.0 in all courses applicable toward the degree. 
Included in the 120 credits must be the following: 

1. CORE (40 credits) 

2. College Requirements 

a. Chemistry: Any one course of three or more credits in chemistry 
numbered 102 or higher. 

b. M athematics or any course that satisfies the CORE Program 

c. Biological Sciences: Any one course carrying three or more credits 
selected from offerings of the Departments of Botany, Entomology, 
Microbiology, or Zoology. 

Courses marked "for non-science majors" cannot be used to satisfy degree 
requirements for any major in the College of Agriculture. 

3. Requirements of the major and supporting areas, which are listed under 
individual program headings in Chapter 7.

give individual guidance. Students entering the freshman year with a 
definite choice of curriculum are assigned to departmental advisors for 
counsel and planning of all academic programs. Students who have not 
selected a definite curriculum are assigned to a general advisor who 
assists with the choice of electives and acquaints students with 
opportunities in the curricula in the College of Agriculture and in other units 
of the university.

Research and Service Units 

Agricultural Experiment Station 

The Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station (MAES) supports a wide array 
of agricultural enterprises, as well as environmental, economic, and social 
needs through a statewide network of facilities and faculty. Experiment 
Station research and education centers are located in 10 facilities 
throughout Maryland. Nearly 120 scientists throughout the University of 
Maryland System are affiliated with MAES. 

State-of-the art methodologies support the Experiment Station's diverse, 
interdisciplinary research program encompassing plant and animal biology; 
biotechnology; agricultural productivity; environment and natural resources; 
utilization and marketing; and land use and public policy. Genetic principles 
and biotechnological techniques are applied to improve turf and ornamental 
plants, vegetable and field crops, poultry, beef and dairy cattle, and other 
animals. Alternative crops and plant species that can tolerate the 
increased levels of ultraviolet light and other conditions brought on by 
global problems such as ozone depletion and the greenhouse effect are 
another focus of MAES research efforts. 

Biochemistry helps to evaluate the nutritional value of crops, the feed 
conversion efficiency of poultry and other animals, and the quality of plant 
and animal products for human consumption. Engineering principles help 
produce and maintain optimal environments for agricultural production; 
improve processing systems that lead to enhanced food quality; and 
enhance waste utilization and disposal techniques. Water quality studies 
analyze the presence and effects of toxins entering the Chesapeake Bay, 
and contribute to efforts to minimize the possible flow of agricultural 
chemicals into surface and ground water. Economic and social science 
studies are applied to preserve Maryland's high quality of life by 
maintaining farmland and open space. 

Undergraduate students do have opportunities to assist in the MAES 
research program, and to benefit from the Station's productive linkage with 
the Cooperative Extension Service as well as public and private research 
units, including the U.S. Department of Agricultural Research Center close 
to the campus in Beltsville. 

Cooperative Extension Service 

The Maryland Cooperative Extension Service (MCES) educates citizens in 
the application of practical, research-based knowledge to critical issues in 
agriculture and agribusiness; home and family economics, nutrition, and 
health; youth development and 4-H; and family and community leadership. 
The statewide program includes more than 180 faculty and support staff 
located in 23 counties, the City of Baltimore, four regional centers, and the 
University of Maryland College Park and Eastern Shore campuses. 

Research faculty and extension agents work cooperatively to ensure that 
state-of-the-art research is effectively translated into educational programs, 
and delivered efficiently to the citizens of Maryland. These programs are 
focused in four major areas: 1) agricultural and aquacultural profitability; 2) 
nutrition, diet, food safety, and health; 3) natural and environmental 
resources; and 4) youth development education. In addition to work on 
farms and with agribusinesses, extension programs are aimed at many 
small and part-time farmers, youth, rural non-farm and urban family 
consumers as well as local officials and community leaders. The Service 
maintains a close working relationship with the Maryland Department of 
Agriculture and other state agencies and organizations. In addition, more 
than 15,000 volunteers in Maryland give generously of their time and 
energy. 

A variety of methods help the Extension Service reach and teach Maryland 
citizens. Downlink satellite technology enables Maryland training sessions 
to include conferences and speakers from across the country. State-of-the- 
art communication technology enables the Extension Home and Garden 
Information Center to answer 60,000 questions annually about plants and 
pests. More traditional methods include conferences, teaching institutes, 
short courses, field days, and demonstrations, along with videotapes, 
newsletters, newspapers, radio and television. 

General administrative offices of the Maryland Cooperative Extension 
Service are located at the University of Maryland at College Park; the 
Extension administrator of the 1890 Program (an integral part of the total 
MCES effort) is located at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

t Distinguished Scholar-Teacher 

The School of Architecture offers a four-year undergraduate program leading 
to the Bachelor of Science degree in architecture, and a graduate program 
leading to the degree of Master of Architecture. The undergraduate major in 
architecture is designed to minimize the time required to complete the 
curriculum leading to the professional degree, Master of Architecture. 

Students receive rigorous and comprehensive instruction from a faculty 
whose members are active in professional practice or research. Many 
faculty members have distinguished themselves across the professional 
spectrum and represent different approaches to architectural design. Their 
individual areas of expertise include architectural design and theory, 
history, architectural archaeology, technology, urban design and planning, 
and historic preservation. Visiting critics, lecturers, and the Kea 
Distinguished Professor augment the faculty; together they provide 
students with the requisite exposure to contemporary realities of 
architectural design. 

The B.S. degree in architecture will qualify graduates to pursue a career in 
any of a number of fields, such as construction, real estate development, 
public administration, or historic preservation, or to continue in graduate 
work in professional fields such as architecture, urban planning, or law. 

Admission to Architecture 

See the Admissions section in this catalog for general LEP admission 
policies. 

Freshman Admission and the 45-Credit Review. Most entering entering 
freshmen who have a GPA of 3.0 and 1100 SATs will gain admission to the 
School of Architecture directly from high school, as allowed by space 
considerations within the School. Because space may be limited before all 
interested freshmen are admitted to the program, early application is 
encouraged. Freshmen admitted to the program will have access to the 
necessary advising through their initial semesters to help them determine if 
Architecture is an appropriate major for their interests and abilities. 

Freshmen who are admitted directly to Architecture will be subject to a 
performance review by the time they have completed 45 credits. To meet 
the provisions of the review, these students must complete: (1) 
Fundamental Studies; (2) 60% of Distributive Studies; (3) ARCH 170, 220, 
and 242 with grades of B in each; (4) MATH 220, PHYS 121, and PHYS 
122 with minimum grades of C in each and a combined GPA of 2.6 for the 
3 courses; (5) three letters of recommendation; and (6) a portfolio review 
as specified by the School. Students who do not meet these requirements 
will not be allowed to continue in the LEP and will be required to select 
another major. 

Transfer Admission. The following requirements affect new transfer 
students to the University as well as on-campus students hoping to change 
majors to Architecture. Admission of transfer students may be severely 
limited, and capacity is determined each year in accordance with the 
success of incoming freshmen. 

In order to be admitted to Architecture, transfer students will be required to 
meet the following set of gateway requirements: (1) completion of 
Fundamental Studies; (2) completion of all Distributive Studies; (3) 
completion of ARCH 242 with a grade of B; (4) completion of MATH 220 
and PHYS 122 with minimum grades of C and a combined average of 2.4; 



(5) successful review of a portfolio to assess drawing skills; and (6) 
attainment of a minimum cumulative GPA for all college-level work 
attempted.The required GPA is set each year and may vary from year to 
year depending upon available space. Contact the School of Architecture 
or the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for the current GPA standard. 

Appeals. Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to 
Architecture at the freshman or transfer level, and believe they have 
extenuating or special circumstances which should be considered, may 
appeal in writing to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The student 
will be notified in writing of the appeal decision once it is made.

COLLEGE OF ARTS AND HUMANITIES 
(ARHU) 

1102 Francis Scott Key Hall, 405-2088 

Professor and Dean: Robert Griffith 
Office of Student Affairs: 405-2108 
Academic Advisors: 405-2108 

The College of Arts and Humanities embraces a heterogeneous group of 
disciplines, all of which value the development of critical thinking, fluent 
expression in writing and speech, sensitivity to ethical and aesthetic 
standards, and a complex understanding of history and culture. 
Departments and programs in Arts and Humanities, while they have strong 
individual identities, are also involved in interdisciplinary studies. Thus 
students will find, for example, courses in the Department of English that 
approach literature from political perspectives, courses in the Department 
of History that rely on feminist perspectives, courses in the Department of 
Art History that study African cultures and so on. 

Examples of the special opportunities available to students in this richly 
variegated college include an exceptional slide library in the Art History 
Department, the Music Department's computer music resources including 
a MIDI Laboratory, the English Department's computer-based writing 
laboratory, an AT&T Foreign Language Classroom, the Pugliese Theatre for 
experimental drama, a junior-year abroad program in Nice, a year-abroad 
program in Sheffield, and Honors programs in most departments. 

Preparation in the Arts and Humanities provides valuable background for 
careers in a broad range of fields. Students should be aware of the many 
eloquent testimonials from leaders of the nation's businesses, industry 
and government to the skills of oral presentation, written exposition, critical 
thinking, and analytic problem-solving nurtured in humanities courses. 
These skills are essential to a successful career in any number of different 
fields. 

Entrance Requirements 

Students wishing to major in one of the creative or performing arts are 
encouraged to seek training in the skills associated with such an area prior 
to matriculation. Students applying for entrance to these programs maybe 
required to audition, present slides, or submit a portfolio as a part of the 



College of Arts and Humanities 51 



admission requirements. 

Graduation Requirements 

The following College requirements apply only to students earning Bachelor 
of Arts degrees from the College of Arts and Humanities. These 
requirements are in addition to or in fulfillment of campus and 
departmental requirements. For information concerning the Bachelor of 
M usic in the Department of M usic the student should consult a department 
advisor. 



Distribution 

A minimum of 45 of the total of 120 semester hours must be upper-level 
work (i.e., courses numbered 300499).

(a) Successful completion of level 4 in one language or level 2 in 
each of two languages in high school, or 

(b) Successful completion of a 12-credit sequence or of the 
intermediate level in College language courses, or 

(c) Successful completion of a language placement examination in 
one of the campus language departments offering such 
examinations. 

Students whose native language is not English should see an advisor in the 
College Office of Student Affairs. 

Major Requirements 

All students must complete a program of study consisting of a major (a 
field of concentration) and supporting courses as specified by one of the 
academic units of the College. No program of study shall require in excess 
of 60 semester hours. Students should consult the unit in which they will 
major for specific details; certain units have mandatory advising. 

A major shall consist, in addition to the lower-division departmental 
prerequisites, of 24 to 40 hours, at least 12 of which must be in courses 
numbered 300 or 400 and at least 12 of which must be taken at the 
University of M aryland at College Park. 

A major program usually requires a secondary field of concentration 
(supporting courses). The nature and number of these courses are 
determined by the major department. 

No grade lower than C may be used to fulfill major or supporting course 
requirements. No course for the major or support module may be taken 
Pass-Fail. 



Advising 



Freshmen and new transfer students have advisors in the Arts and 
Humanities College Office of Student Affairs (405-2110) who assist them in 
the selection of courses and the choice of a major. After selecting a major, 
students are advised in their major department and may also continue to

Maryland English Institute 

2140 Taliaferro Hall, 405-8634 
Director: Leslie A. Palmer 

The Maryland English Institute (MEI) offers special instruction in English to 
students at the University of Maryland who need to improve their 
competence in the language before they are able to undertake a full 
program of academic work. Two programs are offered: a half-time semi- 
intensive course and a full-time intensive course. 

Semi-intensive. This program is open only to University of Maryland 
students, both graduate and undergraduate, who fall within a TOEFL score 
range of 450-549. Candidates in this proficiency range may be admitted to 
the University of Maryland on a provisional basis, requiring them to 
satisfactorily complete the MEI Semi-intensive program in order to become 
full-time students. Classes meet two hours per day, five days per week. In 
addition, students have two hours per week of assigned work in the 
language laboratory. The program is designed especially to perfect the 
language skills necessary for academic study at the University of Maryland. 
Enrollment is by permission of the director, and no credit is given toward 
any degree at the University. 

Intensive. This full-time English-as-a-Foreign-Language program is open to 
non-native speakers of English who need substantial improvement in their 
English competence before they can undertake any academic study at a 
College or university in the United States. On the basis of an entrance 
examination, students will be assigned to classes at their particular 
proficiency levels. They will have five hours of English language instruction 
per day, five days per week during the regularly scheduled semester and an 
eight-week summer session. The program is intended primarily for students 
who wish to enroll at the University of Maryland after completing their 
language instruction. However, satisfactory completion of the language 
program does not guarantee acceptance at the University. Enrollment is by 
permission of the director and no credit is given toward any degree at the 
University.

The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences is comprised of a diverse 
group of disciplines and fields of study all of which emphasize a broad 
liberal arts education as the foundation for understanding the 
environmental, social, and cultural forces that shape our world. At the heart 
of the behavioral and social sciences is the attempt to understand human 
beings, both individually and in groups. Disciplines in the behavioral and 
social sciences use approaches that range from the scientific to the 
philosophical, from the experimental to the theoretical. Integral to all the 
disciplines, however, is the development and application of problem solving 
skills, which in combination with other academic skills, enable students to 
think analytically and to communicate clearly and persuasively. Students 
interested in human behavior and in solving human and social problems 
will find many exciting opportunities through the programs and courses 
offered by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences. 

The College is composed of the following major programs that lead to the 
Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science degree, as appropriate: 

Afro-American Studies Program* 

Department of Anthropology 

Department of Criminal J ustice and Criminology 

Department of Economics 

Department of Geography 

Department of Government and Politics 

Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences 

Department of Psychology 

Department of Sociology 

*The Afro-American Studies Program also offers an undergraduate 



certificate requiring 21 semester hours of coursework (See "Campus-Wide 
Programs" in this catalog.) 

Advising 

The BSOS Undergraduate Advising Office and the Advising Office for 
Students of Color, Athletes, and International Students coordinate advising

the department offices. These advisors are available to assist students in 
selecting courses and educational experiences in their major area of study 
consistent with major requirements and students' educational goals. 

Graduation Requirements 

Each student must complete a minimum of 120 hours of credit with at 
least a 2.0 cumulative average. Courses must include the credits required 
in the University's general education requirements (CORE) and the specific 
major and supporting course and grade requirements of the programs in 
the academic departments offering bachelor's degrees. 

All students are urged to speak with an academic advisor in the College 
Advising Office at least two semesters before graduation to review their 
academic progress and discuss final graduation requirements. 

Honors 

Undergraduate honors are offered to graduating students in the Afro- 
American Studies Program, the departments of Anthropology, Criminology 
and Criminal J ustice, Economics, Geography, Government and Politics, 
Psychology, and Sociology.

award that a BSOS student can earn in the College. Dean's Scholars are 
those graduating seniors who have completed 90 credits at UMCP and 
have maintained a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.8. 

Dean's List. Any student who has passed at least 12 hours of academic 
work in the preceding semester, without failure of any course and with an 
overall average grade of at least 3.5 will be placed on the Dean's List of

summer, and fall transfer orientation programs. Contact the Orientation 
Office for further information, 314-8217. 



Admission to Business and Management 

See the Admissions section in this catalog for general LEP admissions 
policies. 

Freshman Admission and the 45 Credit Review. Most first-time entering 
freshmen will gain admission to the College of Business and Management 
directly from high school, as allowed by space considerations within the 
College. Because space may be limited before all interested freshmen are 
admitted to the program, early application is encouraged. Freshmen 
admitted to the program will have access to the necessary advising through 
their initial semesters to help them determine if Business is an appropriate 
area for their interests and abilities. 

Freshmen who are admitted directly to Business will be subject to a 
performance review by the time they have completed 45 credits. To meet 
the provisions of the review, these students must complete: (1) English 
Fundamental Studies; (2) 60% of lower-level CORE requirements; (3) BMGT 
220, BMGT 230 or 231, and ECON 201 or ECON 203 with a combined GPA 
of 2.5 in the three courses; and (4) a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0. 
Students who do not meet these requirements will not be allowed to 
continue in the LEP and will be required to select another major. 

Transfer Admission. The following requirements affect new transfer 
students to the University: 

Transfer students, as well as on-campus students hoping to change majors 
into the College, will be required to meet the following set of gateway 
requirements: completion of BMGT 220, BMGT 230 or 231, and ECON 201 
or 203 with a minimum grade of C in each and a combined average of 2.5 
for the three courses. Students who have not completed the gateway may 
transfer into the College of Business and Management for one or more 
semesters pending satisfactory completion of the gateway requirements. 
Students who do not complete the gateway requirements will be required to 
select another major. 

Appeals. Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to Business 
at the freshman or transfer level, and believe they have extenuating or 
special circumstances which should be considered, may appeal in writing 
to the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Studies in the College of Business 
and Management. The student will be notified in writing of the appeal 
decision once it is made. 

Students admitted to Business as freshmen who do not pass the 45-credit 
review but believe they have special circumstances which should be 
considered mayalso appeal directly to the College. 

For further information, contact the Office of Undergraduate Studies for the 
College of Business and Management at 405-2286. 



Statement of Policy on Transfer of Credit from 
Community Colleges 

It is the practice of the College of Business and Management to consider 
for transfer from a regionally accredited community college only the 
following courses in business administration: an introductory business 
course, business statistics, elementary accounting or business law. Thus, 
it is anticipated that students transferring from another regionally 
accredited institution will have devoted the major share of their academic 
effort below the junior year to the completion of basic requirements in the 
liberal arts. A total of 60 semester hours from a community college may be 
applied toward a degree from the College of Business and Management. 

Other Institutions 

The College of Business and Management normally accepts transfer credits 
from regionally accredited four-year institutions. Junior- and senior-level 
business courses are accepted from colleges accredited by the American 
Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Junior- and senior- 
level business courses from other than AACSB accredited schools are 
evaluated on a course-by-course basis to determine transferability. 

Summary of Bachelor of Science Degree Requirements 
(all curricula) 

At least 45 hours of the 120 semester hours of academic work required for 
graduation must be in business and management subjects. A minimum of 
57 hours of the required 120 hours must be in 300- or 400-level courses. 
In addition to the requirement of an overall cumulative grade point average 
of 2.0 (C average) in all College Park course work. Effective Fall 1989, all 
business majors must earn a C or better in all required courses, including 
Economics, Mathematics, and Speech. Electives outside the curricula of 
the College maybe taken in any department of the University, if the student 
has the necessary prerequisites.

COLLEGE OF COMPUTER, MATHEMATICAL 
AND PHYSICAL SCIENCES (CMPS) 

3400 A. V. Williams, 405-2677 

Professor and Dean: Richard H. Herman 
Associate Dean: Williams 
Assistant to Dean: Bryant 

The search for new knowledge is one of the most challenging activities of 
humankind. Universities are the key institutions in society where 
fundamental research is emphasized. The College of Computer, 
Mathematical and Physical Sciences at College Park contributes very 
substantially and effectively to the research activities of the University of 
Maryland. This College is like a technical institute within a large university. 
Students majoring in any one of the disciplines encompassed by the 
College have the opportunity of obtaining an outstanding education in their 
field. 

The College serves both students who continue as professionals in their 
area of specialization, either immediately upon graduation or after 
postgraduate studies, and those who use their college education as 
preparation for careers or studies in other areas. The focused specialist as 
well as the broad "Renaissance person" can be accommodated. Many 
research programs include undergraduates either as paid student helpers 
or in forms of research participation. Students in departmental honors 
programs particularly are given the opportunity to become involved in 
research. Other students too may undertake research under the guidance 
of a faculty member. 

A major portion of the teaching program of the College is devoted to serving 
students majoring in disciplines outside of the College. Some of this 
teaching effort is directed toward providing the skills needed in support of 
such majors or programs. Other courses are designed as enrichment for 
non-science students, giving them the opportunity to explore the reality of 
science without the technicalities required of the major. 

The College is strongly committed to making studies in the sciences 
available to all regardless of their background. In particular, the College is 
actively pursuing an affirmative action program to rectify the present under- 
representation of women and minorities in these fields. There are in fact 
many career opportunities for women and members of minorities in the 
fields represented by the College.

COLLEGE OF EDUCATION (EDUC) 

Benjamin Building 

Office of Student Services: 405-2344 

Professor and Dean: Willis D. Hawley 

The College of Education is a professional college committed to advancing 
the science and art of teaching/ learning, including the practices and 
processes which occur from infancy through adulthood in both school and 
non-school settings. The College's mission is to provide preparation for 
current and future teachers, counselors, administrators, educational 



60 Education, College of 



specialists, and other related educational personnel, and to create and 
disseminate the knowledge needed by professionals and policy makers in 
education and related fields. 

The College is organized into six departments, two of which offer 
undergraduate majors in Teacher Education: the Department of Curriculum 
and Instruction, which offers early childhood, elementary, and secondary 
education programs; and the Department of Special Education. Enrollment 
in the professional teacher education programs in the above-mentioned 
departments is limited to those who meet the admission requirements 
specified below. 

Only students who have been admitted to the teacher education programs 
are permitted to enroll in the professional education course sequences. 
Students with other majors who have an interest in the area of education 
may wish to enroll in a variety of courses offered by the College that deal 
with schooling, human development, learning styles and techniques, and 
interaction processes. 

In carrying out its mission, the College is committed to a society which is 
open to and supportive of the educational aspirations of the widest 
population of learners and to continuous research and evaluation in 
relation to teaching and learning in a multicultural, high technology society. 
At times, students may be invited to participate actively with graduate 
students and faculty members in research undertakings and evaluation 
processes. Students also make use of the micro-teaching laboratory, the 
education technology and computer laboratory, and the curriculum 
laboratory. 

In addition to the CORE or USP program requirements, education majors 
have the opportunity to complete 45 to 55 credit hours of work in the arts, 
sciences and/ or humanities. In the teacher education courses, students 
develop professional behaviors through active experiences in the college 
classroom and participate in exploring, learning and practicing with children 
and teachers in classrooms in the community. The capstone experience of 
student teaching brings classroom theory and practice together into a 
personal set of professionally appropriate skills and processes. 

Admission to Teacher Education Professional 
Course Work 

Applicants to the University of Maryland who have declared an interest in 
education are admitted to a department in the College as intended majors. 
All intended majors must apply for admission, and be admitted, in order to 
enroll in coursework in the professional teacher education degree program. 

For admission into a teacher education major, a student must (1) complete 
the English and math lower-level fundamental studies (six credits); (2) earn 
45 semester hours with an overall cumulative grade point average of at 
least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (granted by UMCP or some other institution) in all 
coursework prior to enrollment in EDHD 300 (or EDHD 419 A/B for Early 
Childhood); (3) submit a personal goal statement that indicates an 
appropriate commitment to professional education; (4) have prior 
experiences in the education field; (5) submit three letters of 
recommendation/ reference; and (6) have a satisfactory score on the 
spelling, language, and mathematics segments of the California 
Achievement Test Level 20. Admission application forms are available in 
Room 1210 of the Benjamin Building. Students with documented 
disabilities may contact Disability Support Services (314-7682; TTY, 314- 
7683) to make special arrangements for taking the examination. Only 
those who are admitted are able to enroll in the professional education 
sequence. An overall grade point average of 2.5 must be maintained after 
admission to Teacher Education to continue in the professional education 
programs. 

A student who initially fails to meet the admission criteria may apply to the 
College whenever the criteria for admission are met, with the stipulation, 
however, that a student may take the CAT test a maximum of three times. 
A plan for becoming eligible for admission may be developed by the student 
and the department advisor. A Teacher Education Appeals Board reviews 
appeals from students who do not meet the admission, advancement or 
retention criteria. Consult the Student Services Office for policies and 
procedures regarding appeals. 

Criteria for admission to the Teacher Education program apply to any 
teacher preparation program offered by the University of Maryland. Thus, 
students desiring a major in health or physical education should apply to 
the College of Education for admission to the professional program in 
Teacher Education. Students who are not enrolled in the College of 
Education but who, through an established cooperative program with 
another college, are preparing to teach must meet all admission, scholastic 



and curricular requirements of the College of Education. The professional 
education courses are restricted to degree-seeking majors who have met 
College of Education requirements for admission. 

Student Teaching 

Prior to receiving a student teaching placement, prospective student 
teachers must have been admitted to Teacher Education and have 
completed requirements described below. In programs requiring more than 
one student teaching placement, the first placement must be satisfactorily 
completed before the student begins the succeeding placement. Prior to 
assignment all students in teacher preparation programs must: (1) have 
maintained an overall grade point average of at least 2.5 with a minimum 
grade of C in every course required for the major; (2) have satisfactorily 
completed all other required course work in their program; (3) apply for 
student teaching to the Office of Laboratory Experiences one semester in 
advance; (4) be recommended by their department; (5) have on file 
favorable ratings from prior supervised experiences in school settings 
including evaluations of the EDHD 300 (or EDHD 419 A/B for Early 
Childhood) field experiences; and (6) have undergone a criminal 
background check. A certificate indicating freedom from tuberculosis and 
proof of immunization for measles (rubella) is also required. This may be 
obtained from a private physician, a health department, or the University 
Health Center. 

The student teaching experience is for most students the final experience 
in a professional program preparing them for the beginning teaching years. 
This culminating phase of the teacher education program provides the 
prospective teacher with the opportunity to integrate theory and practice in 
a comprehensive, reality-based, experience. Student teaching placements, 
as well as all other field experiences, are arranged by the Office of 
Laboratory Experiences. 

Most student teaching placements and accompanying seminars are 
arranged in the Teacher Education Centers and other collaborative field 
sites jointly administered by the College of Education and participating 
school systems. The student teaching semester is a full-time commitment 
and interference with this commitment because of employment or course 
work is not permitted. The Office of Laboratory Experiences makes student 
teaching assignments with consideration given to location, programmatic 
priorities, diversity, and availability of sites. Students should be prepared to 
travel to whichever school has been assigned. Living arrangements, 
including transportation for the student teaching assignments, are 
considered the responsibility of the student. Students should contact the 
Office of Laboratory Experiences if there are any questions regarding this 
policy. 

Graduation Requirements 

The degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science are conferred by 
the College of Education. Which degree is conferred depends on the 
amount of liberal arts study included in a particular degree program. 
Minimum requirements for graduation are 120 semester hours. Specific 
departmental program requirements for more than the minimum must be 
fulfilled. 

In addition to the University general education requirements (CORE) and the 
specific requirements for each curriculum, the College requires that all 
majors complete EDHD 300 (or EDHD 419 A/B for Early Childhood), EDPA 
301, and three semester hours of an approved speech course. A grade of 
C or better is required in all pre-professional and professional coursework 
required for the major. An overall grade point average of 2.5 must be 
maintained after admission to Teacher Education. A grade of S is required 
in student teaching. 

Exceptions to curricular requirements and rules of the College of Education 
must be recommended by the student's advisor and department 
chairperson and approved by the dean. 

Accreditation and Certification 

All bachelor's-degree teacher preparation programs are accredited by the 
National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and have been 
approved by the Office of Certification and Accreditation of the Maryland 
State Department of Education using standards of the National Association 
of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification. Accreditation 
provides for reciprocal certification with other states that recognize national 
accreditation.

Center for Minorities in Science and Engineering: 405-3878 

The mission of the Clark School of Engineering is to provide quality 
engineering education, with sufficient scope to include both fundamental 
and specialized engineering training, so that graduates are prepared to 
serve the current and emerging needs of society. Just as the boundary 
between the functions of engineers and applied scientists or 
mathematicians is becoming less distinct, the various branches of 
engineering increasingly interact as technical problems become more 
sophisticated and require interdisciplinary approaches to their solutions. In 
addition to its teaching role, the School feels a related responsibility to 
conduct strong research programs that contribute to the advancement of 
knowledge. 

Engineers also occupy an intermediary position between scientists and the 
public because, in addition to understanding scientific principles, they are 
concerned with the timing, economics, and values that define the use and 
application of those principles. With this in mind the school Lfosters a 
close partnership with industry and government, and also reaches out to 
both the campus community and the community at large with its services.

the School if they have a Math SAT of 550 and either a combined 
SAT of 1100 or a GPA of 3.0 (out of 4.0)* in their academic 
subjects during the 9th, 10th and 11th grades. 

* Minimum GPAs are subject to change each semester. 

2. National Merit and National Achievement Finalists and Semifinalists, 
Maryland Distinguished Scholar Finalists, Chancellor, Presidential, 
or Banneker-Key Scholars, and students who have successfully 
completed a " Summer Program which guarantees admission to 
engineering" are admitted directly to the School. 

Conditional Admissions Requirements 

1. Freshman applicants who do not meet the direct admission 
requirements can be admitted to the School of Engineering as 
conditional engineering majors. These students will be subject to 
two reviews. The first review will be conducted after the student 
has completed MATH 115 and at least 12 credits. A student must 
complete MATH 115 with a grade of "B" or higher and have a 
minimum overall GPA of 2.5 for automatic removal of the 
conditional status at the first review. Students who do not 
successfully complete the first review will be advised whether they 
can remain in the School, or to select another course of study. 

2. The second review will be conducted for those students who failed 
the first review but were allowed to continue in the school. This 
review will be conducted after the student has successfully 
completed PHYS 161* and at least 24 credits. In order to 
successfully complete the second review, the student must have an 
overall GPA of 2.2 and have completed ENES 100 and PHYS 161* 
with a grade of "C" or higher in each. The students who pass the 
second review will automatically have the conditional status 
removed. Students who do not successfully complete the second 
review will receive advice concerning available options which could 
range from removal of the conditional status to selecting a 
non-engineering major. 

45 Credit Review 

All students who are admitted to the University as freshmen and become 
engineering students (direct or conditional) will be subject to a review 
when they complete 45 credits. The purpose of this review is to determine 
whether the student should remain in the School, or should be advised to 
select another, presumably more suitable course of study. In order to 
successfully complete the review, students must have an overall GPA of 
2.0 and have completed MATH 141, PHYS 161*, and CHEM 113** with a 
grade of "C" or better. 

Transfer Admission 

Direct Admissions Requirements 

Students who matriculated at any college or university must meet the 
following competitive requirements: 

1. cumulative GPA (to be set each year based on enrollment demands, 
currently 3.0) 

2. completion of CHEM 113 **, MATH 141, and PHYS 161* with a 
grade of "C" or higher in each. 

Special Notes 

1. Students with a previous B.A. orB.S. degree will be admitted to the

program and complete at least 56 credits, after which the 
student will be admitted to the School on application provided 
he/she has at least a 2.0 GPA at the community college. The 
student must supply the high school transcript and SAT scores. 
In the event that the community college does not offer a 
56-credit articulated engineering program, the student may 
transfer earlier. 

b. Transfer to the School upon completing the five required courses 
(MATH 140, MATH 141, CHEM 103, CHEM 113**, and PHYS 
161* with a grade of "C" or better) and meeting the competitive 
GPA for the semester of intended enrollment on the College Park 
campus. 

Conditional Admissions Requirements 

1. Transfer applicants who do not meet the direct admission 
requirements may be admitted to the School of Engineering as 
conditional engineering majors. These students will be subject to 
two reviews. The first review will be conducted after the student has 
completed at least 12 credits. In order to successfully complete the 
review and have the conditional status automatically removed, a

extenuating circumstances may file a written appeal in the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions, Mitchell Building. Appeals will be reviewed by 
the School of Engineering. 

Graduation Requirements 

Structure of Engineering Curricula: Courses in the normal curriculum or 
program and prescribed credit hours leading to the degree of Bachelor of 
Science (with curriculum designation) are outlined in the sections 
describing each department in the Clark School of Engineering. No student 
may modify the prescribed number of hours without special permission 
from the Dean of the School. The courses in each curriculum may be 
classified in the following categories: 

1. Courses in the CORE Liberal Arts and Science Studies Program. 

2. Courses in the physical sciences, mathematics, chemistry, physics. 

3. Related technical courses, engineering sciences and other courses 
approved for one curriculum but offered by another department. 

4. Courses in the major department. A student should obtain written 
approval for any substitution of courses from the department chair 
and the Dean of the School. The courses in each engineering 
curriculum, as classified below, form a sequential and 
developmental pattern in subject matter. In this respect, curricula in 
engineering may differ from curricula in other colleges. Some 
regulations which are generally applicable to all students may need 
clarification for purposes of orderly administration among 
engineering students (see the Academic Regulations section of this 
catalog). Moreover, the Clark School of Engineering establishes 
policies which supplement University regulations. 



A. James Clark School of Engineering 63 



School Regulations 

1. The responsibility for proper registration and for satisfying stated 
prerequisites for any course must rest with the student as does the 
responsibility for proper achievement in courses in which the 
student is enrolled. Each student should be familiar with the 
provisions of this catalog, including the Academic Regulations. 

2. Required courses in mathematics, physics, and chemistry have 
highest priority; and it is strongly recommended that every 
engineering student register for mathematics and chemistry or 
mathematics and physics each semester until the student has fully 
satisfied requirements of the Clark School of Engineering in these 
subjects. 

3. To be eligible for a bachelor's degree in the Clark School of 
Engineering, a student must have an overall average of at least a C 
(2.0) and a grade of C or better in all engineering courses (courses 
with an EN prefix). Responsibility for knowing and meeting all 
graduation requirements in any curriculum rests with the student. 

4. All students are required to complete a number of general education 
courses and must follow the University's requirements regarding 
completion of the general education (CORE) Program. Consult the 
Academic Regulations section of this catalog for additional 
information. Engineering students who began college-level work 
(either at the University of Maryland or at other institutions) during 
the Fall 1989 semester or later are required to complete a junior- 
level English course regardless of their performance in Freshmen 
English classes. This represents a School policy, not a University- 
wide policy. Students beginning college-level work in the Fall 1989 
semester must also plan their general education (CORE) courses to 
reflect depth as well as breadth. They should plan to take at least 
two courses (preferably a lower-level and upper-level course) which 
follow a theme area or provide more than simply introductory level 
study in one general studies department of their choice. 

5. All degree programs in the Clark School of Engineering require a 
minimum of 120 credits plus satisfaction of all department, School, 
and University general education (CORE) Program requirements. 
Students should be aware that for all currently existing engineering 
programs the total number of credits necessary for the degree will 
exceed 120 by some number that will depend on the specific major 
and the student's background. 

Curricula for the various engineering departments are given in this catalog 
to illustrate how the programs can be completed in four years. These 
curricula are rigorous and relatively difficult for the average student. Surveys 
have shown that only about one-third to one-half of the students actually 
receive an engineering degree in four years. The majority of students 
(whether at Maryland or at other engineering schools nationwide) complete 
the engineering program in four and one-half to five years. It is quite 
feasible for a student to stretch out any curriculum; this may be necessary 
or desirable for a variety of reasons. However, students should seek 
competent advising in order to ensure that courses are taken in the proper 
sequence. 

All students are urged to speak to a counselor in the Clark School of 
Engineering Student Affairs Office at least two semesters before graduation 
to review their academic progress and discuss final graduation 
requirements. 



Advising 

Advising is available byappointment Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. 
to 4:30 p.m. Appointments for other hours may be made through special 
request. The Clark School of Engineering Student Affairs Office, is located 
in Room 1131 Engineering Classroom Building, 405-3855. In addition, 
advising is available with the individual departments. See advising section 
in the specific engineering department entry for times and location. 

Departments and Degrees 

The Clark School of Engineering offers the degree of Bachelor of Science in 
the following fields of study: Aerospace Engineering, Biological Resources 
Engineering (see also College of Agriculture), Chemical Engineering, Civil 
Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Fire Protection Engineering, Mechanical 
Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Undesignated Engineering (Engineering 
Option and Applied Science Option). 

All of the above programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation 
Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology 
except the Applied Science Option of the Undesignated Engineering degree. 



The Freshman-Sophomore Years 

The freshman and sophomore years in engineering are designed to lay a 
strong foundation in mathematics, physical sciences, and the engineering 
sciences upon which the student will later develop a professional program 
during the upper division (junior and senior) years. The School course 
requirements for the freshman year are the same for all students, 
regardless of their intended academic program, and about 75% of the 
sophomore year course requirements are common, thus affording the 
student maximum flexibility in choosing a specific engineering 
specialization. 

Engineering Sciences 

Engineering Science courses represent a common core of basic material 
offered to students of several different departments. All freshman and 
sophomore students of engineering are required to take ENES 100 and 
ENES 102. Other ENES courses, 220, 221, 230, and 240, are specified by 
the different departments or taken by the student as electives. The 
responsibility for teaching the engineering science courses is divided 
among the Chemical, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering 
departments. In addition to the core courses noted above, several courses 
of general interest to engineering or non-engineering students have been 
given ENES designations. See the List of Approved Courses in this catalog 
for further descriptions of these courses. 

Freshman Curriculum 

All freshmen in the Clark School of Engineering are required to complete 
the following basic curriculum regardless of whether the student plans to 
proceed through one of the designated baccalaureate programs or follow 
any of the multidisciplinary nondesignated degree curricula that are 
sponsored by the School.

ENGL 101 — Introduction to Writing (Freshman English)* 

Total 16 17 

*ENGL 101: Freshman English must be attempted before completion of 30 
credit hours. 

Entering freshmen math placements are determined by performance on 
math placement exams. Placement in MATH 002 or MATH 115 will delay by 
a semester eligibility to take certain engineering courses. 



Sophomore Year 

During the sophomore year the student selects a sponsoring academic 
department (Aerospace, Agricultural, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Fire 
Protection, Mechanical, or Materials and Nuclear Engineering) and this 
department assumes the responsibility for the student's academic 
guidance, counseling, and program planning from that point until the 
completion of the degree requirements of that department as well as the 
School. For the specific requirements, see the curriculum listing in each 
engineering department. 

Dual Degree Program 

The Dual Degree Program is a cooperative arrangement between the Clark 
School of Engineering and selected liberal arts colleges which allows 
students to earn undergraduate degrees from both institutions in a five-year 
program. A student in the Dual Degree Program will attend the liberal arts 
college for approximately three academic years (minimum 90 semester 
hours) and the Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland for 
approximately two academic years (minimum hours required determined 
individually approximately 60 semester hours). 

Dual degree candidates may participate in any of the baccalaureate 
programs in the Clark School of Engineering. 



64 A. James Clark School of Engineering 



At the present time the participating institutions in Maryland and the 
District of Columbia are American University, Bowie State University, 
Columbia Union College, Coppin State College, Frostburg State University, 
Morgan State University, College of Notre Dame of Maryland, St. Mary's 
College of Maryland, Salisbury State University, Towson State University, 
Western Maryland College, Trinity College, and Washington College. Also 
participating in the program are Kentucky State University, King College in 
Tennessee, Shippensburg State University in Pennsylvania, and Xavier 
University in Louisiana. 

Dual Degree Program in Engineering and 
German 

The Clark School of Engineering and the Department of German and Slavic 
Languages have established a dual degree program in Engineering and 
German in which students can simultaneously earn two baccalaureates in 
both disciplines. The program provides eight weeks in Germany studying 
intensive technical German at the Carl Duisberg Sprachcolleg and a four-to- 
six-month paid internship in German industry. 

For further information about this program, students should contact the 
Engineering Student Affairs Office, 405-3855, or the Department of German 
and Slavic Languages and Literature, 405-4091. 

The J apan Technological Affairs Program 

The Japan Technological Affairs Program offers students in the Clark School 
of Engineering intensive Japanese language instruction, workshops, and 
activities related to Japanese culture and society to prepare students for 
year-long internships in Japan in a Japanese laboratory or company. The 
program is coordinated between the Clark School of Engineering and the 
Department of East Asian Languages. Students complete their 
baccalaureate studies in engineering and receive the intensive J apanese 
instruction in summer classes in the University's Language House and 
classes during the academic year to prepare the future engineer to operate 
with ease in Japan's research community. 

For further information about this program, students should contact the 
Engineering Student Affairs Office, 405-3855. 

Engineering Transfer Programs 

Most of the community colleges in Maryland provide one- or two-year 
programs which have been coordinated to prepare students to enter the 
sophomore or junior year in engineering at the University of Maryland. 
These curricula are identified as Engineering Transfer Programs in the 
catalogs of the sponsoring institutions. The various associate degree 
programs in technology do not provide the preparation and transferability 
into the professional degree curricula as the designated transfer programs. 
A maximum of one-half of the degree credits (60 to 65 semester hours) 
may be transferred from a two-year community college program. 

There may be six to eight semester hours of major departmental courses at 
the sophomore level which are not offered by the schools participating in 
the engineering transfer program. Students should investigate the 
feasibility of completing these courses in summer school at the University 
of Maryland before starting their junior coursework in the fall semester. 

Financial Assistance 

The Clark School of Engineering awards some merit-based scholarships. 
These awards are designated primarily for juniors and seniors in the 
School. Students must submit an application and all supporting documents

Located just nine miles from the nation's capital and 30 miles from the 
bustling commercial port of Baltimore, the College of Journalism at the 
University of Maryland is one of only six comprehensive journalism schools 
in the 10 states stretching from New York to Virginia— the nation's most 
populous region. But the College has a lot more than geography going for it. 
The National Assessment of Journalism Education by the Freedom Forum of 
Media Studies Center of Columbia University conducted recently 
designated the College one of "Eleven Exemplary Journalism schools" 
nationwide: those that surpass others in criteria including teaching, 
research, facilities and job placement. 

Founded in 1947, the College has been accredited for close to three 
decades by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass 
Communication. Since it is within easy reach of the offices of Washington 
and Baltimore newspapers and the Washington bureaus of news 
organizations such as The New York Times, the Associated Press and the 
major networks, it is an ideal place for the study of journalism and mass 
communication. Students have internship opportunities at a variety of 
media, nonprofit, government and international agencies. Select students 
can also participate in a public affairs reporting semester in the College's 
Annapolis or Washington, D.C., bureaus of Capital News Service. Talented 
adjunct faculty members are also tapped from these organizations to 
enhance curriculum offerings. 

After successful completion of a series of basic writing and editing skills 
courses, majors are provided the following sequences in which to focus 
their remaining journalism curriculum: news-editorial, public relations, 
broadcast news, advertising. Within the news-editorial sequence, 
emphases are provided in the areas of news and magazine. 



Admission to College of Journalism 

See the Admission chapter in this catalog for general LEP admissions 
policies. 

Freshman Admission and the 45-Credit Review. Most first-time entering 
freshmen will gain admission to the College of Journalism directly from high 
school, as allowed by space considerations within the College. Because 
space may be limited before all interested freshmen are admitted to the 
program, early application is encouraged. Freshmen admitted to the 
program will have access to the necessary advising through their initial 
semesters to help them determine if Journalism is an appropriate area for 
their interests and abilities. 

Freshmen who are admitted directly to Journalism will be subject to a 
performance review by the time they have completed 45 credits. To meet 
the provisions of the review, these students must complete: (1) 
Fundamental Studies; (2) 60% of Distributive Studies; (3) ENGL 101 and 
JOUR 201 with grades of C; and (4) a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0. 
Enrollment in JOUR 201 requires proof of grammar skills competency 
through attainment of a minimum score of 52 on the Test of Standard 
Written English (TSWE), 61 on the Test of Language Skills (TLS), or 12 on 
the ACT English usage subsection. Students who do not meet these 
requirements will not be allowed to continue in the LEP and will be required 
to select another major. 

Transfer Admission. These requirements affect new transfer students to 
the University as well as on-campus students hoping to change majors to 
the College. Admission of transfer students may be severely limited, and 
capacity is determined each year in accordance with the success of 
incoming freshmen. 

Note: No more than 12 transfer credits of communications courses from 
an accredited journalism program may be approved by the College to be 
applied toward the degree. Transfer students who wish to receive credit 
for J OUR 201 based on work done in a non-accredited journalism program 
must pass a proficiency exam. 

In order to be admitted to Journalism, transfer students will be required to 
meet the following set of gateway requirements: (1) completion of 
Fundamental Studies; (2) completion of 60% of Distributive Studies; (3) 
completion of ENGL 101 and JOUR 201 with grades of C; and (4) 
attainment of a minimum cumulative GPA for all college-level work 
attempted. Enrollment in JOUR 201 requires proof of grammar skills 
competency through attainment of a minimum score of 52 on the Test of 
Standard Written English (TSWE), 61 on the Test of Language Skills (TLS), 
or 12 on the ACT English usage subsection. The required GPA is set each 
year and may vary from year to year depending upon available space. 
Contact the College of J ournalism or the Office of Undergradute Admissions 
for the current GPA standard. 

Appeals. Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to 
Journalism at the freshman or transfer level, and believe they have 
extenuating or special circumstances which should be considered, may 
appeal in writing to the Office of Undergradute Admissions. The student will 
be notified in writing of the appeal decision once it is made. 

Students admitted to Journalism as freshmen who do not pass the 45- 
credit review but believe they have special circumstances which should be 
considered may appeal directly to the College. 

For further information, contact the Counselor for Limited Enrollment 
Programs at 314-8378. 

Degrees 

The College of Journalism offers the B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees. At the 
undergraduate level, students are required to specialize in one of the four 
sequences offered. All diplomas are in J ournalism. 

Graduation Requirements 

Students are required to earn a minimum of 121 credits. Accrediting 
regulations require three-fourths of a student's course work (a minimum of 
90 credits) be in areas other than mass communication (such as speech) 
or journalism. A minimum of 65 of those 90 credits must be earned in 
liberal arts designated courses. A grade of C or better must be earned in 
JOUR 201 and JOUR 202 prior to taking courses for which they serve as 
prerequisites. Students must have a C average in their major. 



College of Journalism 67 



Students are also required to demonstrate abstract thinking skills. As a 
measure, majors are offered either a language option, a mathematics 
option, or a combination of the two. Language skills must be demonstrated 
by taking coursework through the intermediate level. The Math option 
requires that students complete the following courses: statistics, calculus, 
and computer science. 

A support area consisting of four upper-level courses in a concentrated field 
is also required of Journalism majors. Students must also complete a 
minimum of 57 credits at the upper level of which no more than 24 can be 
Journalism or Mass Communications credits. Finally, in addition to 
University graduation requirements, Journalism majors must complete 
additional liberal arts course work with one course each in government and 
politics, public speaking, psychology and economics and one course in 
sociology, anthropology or history.

The Major 

Aerospace engineering is concerned with the physical understanding, 
related analyses, and creative processes required to design aerospace 
vehicles operating within and beyond planetary atmospheres. Such vehicles 
range from helicopters and other vertical takeoff aircraft at the low speed 
end of the flight spectrum to spacecraft operating at thousands of miles 
per hour during entry into the atmospheres of the Earth and other planets, 
in between are general aviation and commercial transports flying at speeds 
well below and close to the speed of sound, and supersonic transports, 
fighters, and missiles which cruise at many times the speed of sound. 
Although each speed regime and each vehicle type poses its own special 
research, analysis and design problems, each can be addressed by a 
common set of technical specialties or disciplines. 

These include aerodynamics, the study of how airflow produces effects on 
temperature, forces, and movements; flight dynamics, the study of the 
motion and flight path of vehicles; flight structures, the study of the 
mechanical behavior of materials, stresses and strains, deflection, and 
vibration; flight propulsion, the study of the physical fundamentals of how 
engines work; and the synthesis of all these principles into one system 
with a specific application such as a complete transport aircraft, a missile, 
or a space vehicle through the discipline of aerospace vehicle design. 

The facilities of the department include several subsonic wind tunnels with 
sections ranging from a few inches up to the Glenn L. Martin Wind Tunnel 
with a 7.75-by-ll-foot cross-section which is the best of its class located at 
any university. There is a supersonic tunnel, equipment for the static and 
dynamic testing of structural components, and a flight simulator. The 
Center for Rotorcraft Education and Research (CRER) has established 
some unique experimental facilities to test helicopter models in simulated 
environments, including an automated model rig and computer-controlled 
vacuum chamber. The Composite Research Laboratory (CORE) has the 
facilities necessary to the manufacturing, testing and inspection of 
composite materials and structures, including an autoclave, an x-ray 
machine, and a 220 Kip Uniaxial test machine with hydraulic grips. The 
Space Systems Laboratory operates the Neutral Buoyancy Research facility 
for investigating assembly of space structures in a simulated zero gravity 
environment together with robots and their associated controllers. The 
department's computing facilities include microcomputers, Sun 
workstations, and terminals. There is network access to many 
minicomputers, the campus mainframes, and several supercomputing 
centers.

Honors Program 



Academically talented undergraduates may enroll in the University Honors 
Program with a specialization in Afro-American Studies. The honors program 
includes seminars and lectures presented by distinguished UMCP faculty 
and guests. A reduced ratio of students to faculty ensures a more 
individualized study focus. In addition, AASP majors with junior standing 
may petition to become individual honors candidates in Afro-American 
Studies. 



BA/ MPM Program 

In this innovative joint program candidates earn a bachelor's degree in Afro- 
American Studies and a master's degree in public management after 
approximately five years The BA/MPM is designed to integrate the study of 
the history, culture, and life of African Americans with technical skills, 
training, and techniques of contemporary policy analysis. The program also 
features a summer component that includes a lecture series, research 
opportunities, and special seminars. 

Admission into the BA/ M PM program requires two steps: 

Undergraduate 

(1) Students must major in the public policy concentration within the 
Afro-American Studies program and maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 
or greater. 

Graduate 

(2) Students apply to the joint program after completing 81 credit 
hours of undergraduate work. Applicants must meet both UMCP 
graduate and School of Public Affairs graduate admission 
requirements. 

Eligibility 

Freshmen or UMCP students in good academic standing with fewer than 60 
credits may apply for the BA/MPM program. 

Contact: The Afro-American Studies Program at 405-1158 for application 
and scholarship details. 



Options for Study with AASP 

For students who major in other departments, the Afro-American Studies 
Program offers three options for study: 

1. Students may obtain a certificate in Afro-American Studies by 
completing 21 credit hours of course work. To qualify for the 
certificate in AASP, students must take AASP 100, AASP 101 and 
AASP 200 or AASP 202; nine credits of upper-division AASP 
electives**; and AASP 400 or AASP 402. 

**Three of these credits may be taken outside of the 
department but permission is required from the AASP 
Advisor. 

2. Students may designate Afro-American Studies as a double major, 
completing the major requirements for both AASP and another 
program. 

3. AASP can be a supporting area of student for majors such as 
Computer Science, Business, or Engineering.

Agriculture is a complex scientific field, encompassing all other scientific 
and professional fields. However, majoring in Agricultural Sciences does 
not require an agricultural background. Students in this major have 
backgrounds as varied as is the field itself. The Agricultural Sciences 
program is designed for students who are interested in a broad education 
in the field of agriculture. It is ideal for students who would like to survey 
agriculture before specializing, and for those who prefer to design their own 
specialized programs, such as International Agriculture or Agricultural 
J ournalism. To supplement their classroom work, students in this major are 
encouraged to obtain summer positions that will provide technical 
laboratory or field experience in their chosen area. Advising is mandatory.

The Major 

Agronomy instruction combines the principles of basic sciences with a 
thorough understanding of plants and soils and environmental sciences. 
This amalgamation of basic and applied sciences provides the opportunity 
for careers in conserving soil and water resources, improving environmental 
quality, increasing crop production to meet the global need for food, and 
beautifying and conserving the urban landscape using turfgrass. 

The agronomy curricula are flexible and allow the student either to 
concentrate on basic science courses that are needed for graduate work or 
to select courses that prepare for employment at the bachelor's degree 
level. Graduates with a bachelor's degree are employed by private 
corporations as environmental soil scientists, golf course managers, 
agribusiness company representatives, or by county, state, or federal 
government as agronomists or extension agents. Students completing 
graduate programs are prepared for research, teaching, and management 
positions with industry, international agencies, or federal and state 
government. Advising is mandatory.

The Major 

American Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of 
American culture and society, past and present, with special attention to 
the ways in which Americans, in different historical or social contexts, make 
sense of their experience. Emphasizing analysis and synthesis of diverse 
cultural products, the major provides valuable preparation for graduate 
training in the professions as well as in business, government and 
museum work. Undergraduate majors, with the help of faculty advisors, 
design a program that includes courses offered by the American Studies 
faculty, and sequences of courses in the disciplines usually associated 
with American Studies (i.e., history, literature, sociology, anthropology, art 
history, and others), or pertinent courses grouped thematically (e.g., Afro- 
American studies, women's studies, ethnic studies). 

Requirements for M ajor 

The major requires 45 hours, at least 24 of which must be at the 300-400 
level. Of those 45 hours, 21 must be in AMST courses, with the remaining

76 Applied Mathematics Program 



The Major 

Anthropology, the holistic study of humanity, seeks to understand humans 
as a whole— as social animals who are capable of symbolic communication 
through which they produce a rich cultural record— from the very beginning 
of time and all over the world. Anthropologists try to explain differences 
among humans— differences in their physical characteristics as well as in 
their attitudes, customary behavior, and artifacts. Since children learn their 
culture from the preceding generation, who in turn learned it from the 
preceding generation, culture has grown and changed through time as the 
species has spread over the earth. Anthropology is not the history of kings 
and great women or men or of wars and treaties; it is the history and the 
science of the biological evolution of human species, and of the cultural 
evolution of human beings' knowledge and customary behavior. 

Anthropology at UMCP offers rigorous training for many career options. A 
strong background in anthropology is a definite asset in preparing for a 
variety of academic and profession fields, ranging from the law and 
business, to comparative literature, philosophy and the fine arts. Whether 
one goes on to a Master's or a Ph.D., the anthropology B.A. prepares one 
for a wide range of non-academic employment, such as city and public 
health planning, development consulting, program evaluation, and public 
archaeology. 

Academic Programs and Departmental 
Facilities 

The Anthropology Department offers beginning and advanced coursework in 
the four principal subdivisions of the discipline: ethnology (also known as 
cultural anthropology), archaeology, biological anthropology, and linguistics. 
Within each area, the department offers some degree of specialization and 
provides a variety of opportunities for research and independent study. 
Laboratory courses are offered in biological anthropology, archaeology, and 
ethnographic methods. Field schools are offered in archaeology and 
ethnography. The interrelationship of all branches of anthropology is 
emphasized. 

The undergraduate curriculum is closely tied to the department's Master in 
Applied Anthropology (MAA) program; accordingly, preparation for non- 
academic employment upon graduation is a primary educational goal of the 
Department's undergraduate coursework and internship and research 
components. 

The Anthropology Department has a total of four laboratories located in 
Woods Hall, which are divided into teaching labs and research labs. The 
department's two archaeology labs, containing materials collected from 
field schools of the past several years, serve both teaching and research 
purposes. The other two laboratories are a teaching laboratory in biological 
anthropology and the Laboratory for Applied Ethnography and Community 
Action Research. 



In addition to the above requirements, anthropology majors must meet the 
requirements of the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, as well as 
the requirements of the University's general education program. 

Advising 

Undergraduate advising is coordinated by the Director for Undergraduate 
Studies, Dr. William Stuart, who serves as the Administrative Advisor for all 
undergraduate majors and minors. All majors are required to meet with Dr. 
Stuart at least once per term, at the time of early registration. In addition, 
the Anthropology Department encourages students to select an academic 
advisor who will work closely with the student to tailor the program to fit the 
student's particular interests and needs. All Anthropology faculty members 
serve as academic advisors (and should be contacted individually). Each 
major is expected to select an academic advisor and to consult with 
him/her on a regular basis. For additional information, students should 
contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. William Taft Stuart, 
0100A Woods Hall, 405-1435. 

Honors 

The Anthropology Department also offers an Honors Program that provides 
the student an opportunity to pursue in-depth study of his or her interests. 
Acceptance is contingent upon a 3.5 GPA in anthropology courses and a 
3.0 overall average. Members of this program are encouraged to take as 
many departmental honors courses (either as HONR or as "H" sections of 
ANTH courses) as possible. The Honors Citation is awarded upon 
completion and review of a thesis (usually based upon at least one term of 
research under the direction of an Anthropology faculty member) to be done 
within the field of anthropology. Details and applications are available in 
the Anthropology Office, or contact your advisor for further information.

The Major 

An Art Department is a place where ideas become art objects. To 
accomplish this transformation, the art student must articulate and refine 
the concept, and then apply acquired knowledge and skills to the materials 
that comprise the object. 

Human beings have made and embellished objects for thousands of years. 
In the 20th century, Art Department faculties and students embody this 
fundamental human inclination and attempt to understand, convey, and 
celebrate it. 

Requirements for Major 

The Department of Art is part of the College of Arts and Humanities at the 
University of Maryland at College Park. We offer students a Bachelor of Arts 
(B.A.) degree and a Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) degree in Art. Along with 
college and campus-wide general education requirements, the student may 
choose one of two Major Program Options for the B.A. degree, Program A 
or Program B. 

Program A requires 42 credits in art, art theory, and art history courses. 
Program A also requires an additional 12 credits in a supporting area not 
related to art or art history, for a total of 54 required credits. This 
supporting area allows the student to choose related areas of interest as a 
secondary concentration. 

Program B requires 36 credits in art and art theory courses and 12 
additional credits of art history courses for a total of 48 required credits. 
Program B provides more credits in art, art history and art theory courses 
than Program A and allows for a greater number of electives. 

No course with a grade less than C may be used to satisfy Major or 
Supporting Area requirements. 

Advising 

We strongly recommend that the student see his or her advisor each 
semester. The department has four advisors. 

Fieldwork and Internship Opportunities 

Students in the past have worked in a variety of internship settings. These 
have included assisting professionals complete public commissions, 
commercial or cooperative gallery and exhibition duties, and working in 
professional artists' workshops in the Baltimore and Washington 
metropolitan areas. Additional information is available in the Art 
Department office. 

Scholarships and Awards 

The Art Department administers eight Creative and Performing Arts 
Scholarships (CAPAs) that are available to freshman and entering transfer 
students for the Fall semesters. This is a merit-based scholarship that is 
awarded on a one-year basis. Additional information is available in the main 
office of the department. The James P. Wharton Prize is awarded to the 
outstanding Art major participating in the December or May graduation 
exhibition. The Van Crews Scholarship is designated for outstanding Art 
majors concentrating in design. It is awarded for one year and is 
renewable. 

Student Art Exhibitions 

The West Gallery (1309 Art Sociology Building) is an exhibition space 
devoted primarily to showing students' art work, and is administered by 
undergraduate art majors. 



Lecture Program 



The Art Department has a lecture program in which artists and critics are 
brought to the campus to explore ideas in contemporary art. A strong 
component of this program is devoted to the art ideas of women and 
minorities.

Associate Professors: Kelly, Kuo, Spiro, Venit, Withers 

Assistant Professors: Colantuono, Gerstel, Gill, Promey, Sandler, Sharp 

The Major 

A major in the department of Art History and Archeology leads to a Bachelor 
of Arts degree in art history through the study and scholarly interpretation 
of existing works of art, from the prehistoric era to the present. 

The goal of the Art History and Archeology Department is to develop the 
student's aesthetic sensitivity and understanding of art as well as to impart 
a knowledge of the works, the artists, and their place in history. In addition 
to courses in European art history and archaeology, the curriculum includes 
courses in African, American, Black American, Chinese, Japanese, and Pre- 
Columbian art history and archaeology, all taught by specialists in the 
fields. A 65,000 volume art library and the University's art gallery are 
located in the art building. 

The Art History faculty encourages the development of language skills and 
writing. The program provides a good foundation for graduate study, for 
work in museums and galleries, or for teaching, or for any profession in 
which clear thinking and writing are required. 

The requirements for a major in Art History are as follows: three ARTH 
courses (9 credits) at the 200 level; seven ARTH courses (21 credits) at 
the 300-400 level; either ARTT 100 or ARTT 110; a supporting area 
comprised of four courses (12 credits) in coherently related subject matter 
outside the Art History Department, of which two courses must be at the 
300-400 level and in a single department. Thus, there is required a total 
of 45 credits (30 in ARTH courses, 3 in an ARTT course, and 12 in the 
supporting area). 

No major credit can be received for ARTH 100, 355, 380, 381 or 382. No 
course with a grade less than C may be used to satisfy major or supporting 
area requirements. Students are encouraged to explore the diversity of 
geographical and chronological areas offered in the Art History program. 

Honors Program: Qualified majors may participate in the department's 
honors program, which requires the completion of six credits of ARTH 378 
and six credits of ARTH 379. Consult a departmental advisor for details. 

Awards: The Department of Art History and Archeology offers three 
undergraduate awards each year: the J.K. Reed Fellowship Award to an 
upper-level major and the George Levitine and Frank DiFederico Book 
Awards to seniors nearing graduation.

The Major 

The Astronomy Program offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Science in 
Astronomy as well as a series of courses of general interest to non-majors. 
Astronomy majors are given a strong undergraduate preparation in 
astronomy, mathematics and physics. The degree program is designed to 
prepare students for positions in government and industry laboratories or 
for graduate work in astronomy or related fields. A degree in astronomy has 
also proven valuable as preparation for non-astronomical careers. 

Requirements for M ajor 

Astronomy majors are required to take a two-semester introductory 
astrophysics course sequence: ASTR 200, 350 as well as a two-semester 
sequence on observational astronomy ASTR 310 (Optical Astronomy) and 
ASTR 410 (Radio Astronomy). Two additional upper-level astronomy 
courses are also required. 

Students majoring in astronomy are also required to obtain a good 
background in physics and in mathematics. The normal required sequence 
is PHYS 171, 272, 273 and the associated labs PHYS 275, 276 and 375. 
With the permission of the advisor, PHYS 161, 262, 263 plus 375 can be 
substituted for this sequence. Two additional 400-level Physics courses are 
required. Astronomy majors are also required to take a series of supporting 
courses in mathematics. These are MATH 140, 141, 240 and 241. In 
addition, MATH 246 is strongly recommended. 

The program requires that a grade of C or better be obtained in all courses 
required for the major. Any student who wishes to be recommended for 
graduate work in astronomy must maintain a B average. He or she should 
also consider including several additional advanced courses beyond the 
minimum required, to be selected from astronomy, physics and 
mathematics. 

Detailed information on typical programs and alternatives to the standard 
program can be found in the pamphlet entitled "Department Requirements 
for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Astronomy" which is available from the 
Astronomy Department office. 

Facilities 

The Department of Astronomy has joined with two other universities in 
upgrading and operating an mm wavelength array located at Hat Creek in 
California. Observations can be made remotely from the College Park 
campus. Several undergraduate students have been involved in projects 
associated with this array. The department also operates a small 
observatory on campus. This is equipped with a CCD camera which is used 
in the observing class. Results obtained at the observatory can be analyzed 
using the department's computer network. 

Courses for Non-Science M ajors 

There are a variety of astronomy courses offered for those who are 
interested in learning about the subject but do not wish to major in it. 
These courses do not require any background in mathematics or physics 
and are designed especially for the non-science major. ASTR 101 is a 
general survey course including laboratory work. It briefly covers most of 
the major topics in astronomy. Several 300-level courses are offered 
primarily for non-science students who want to learn about a particular field 
in depth, such as the Solar System, Cosmology, and Life in the Universe. 
Non-science majors should not normally take ASTR 200 or ASTR 350. 

Honors 

The Honors Program offers students of exceptional ability and interest in 
astronomy opportunities for part-time research participation which may 
develop into full-time summer projects. Honors students work with a faculty 
advisor on a research project for which academic credit may be earned. 
Certain graduate courses are open for credit toward the bachelor's degree. 
Students are accepted into the Honors Program by the Department's 
Honors Committee on the basis of recommendations from their advisors 
and other faculty members. Honors candidates submit a written report on 



their research project, which together with an oral comprehensive 
examination in the senior year, concludes the program which may lead to 
graduation "with honors (or high honors) in astronomy." 

Further information about advising and the Honors Program can be 
obtained by calling the Department of Astronomy office at (301) 405-3001.

The Majors 

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers the B.S. degree in 
both Chemistry and Biochemistry. Either curriculum is designed to prepare 
major students for entering graduate or professional school, for career 
opportunities in chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and for basic 
research positions in government and academic laboratories. 

Requirements for Chemistry M ajor 

Majors in Chemistry or Biochemistry should take the CHEM 143-153 
sequence, General Chemistry for Majors. Transfer students or students 
changing to the major after the freshman year will take a three-course 
sequence: CHEM 103,113,227. 

The major in chemistry requires 41 credits in chemistry, of which 18 are 
lower-level and 23 are upper-level. Six credits of the twenty-three upper- 
level requirements must be selected from approved chemistry courses. The 
program is designed to provide the maximum amount of flexibility to 
students seeking preparation for either the traditional branches of 
chemistry or the interdisciplinary fields. In order to meet requirements for a 
degree to be certified by the American Chemical Society, students must 
select one laboratory course from their upper-level chemistry electives. 

A sample program, listing only the required or recommended courses, is 
given below. It is expected that each semester's electives will include 
courses intended to satisfy the general requirements of the university or of 
the College of Life Sciences, including Math 140, 141 and Physics 141, 
142, plus others of the student's choice. 

Each required chemistry course must be passed with a minimum grade of 
C. Required supporting courses must be passed with a C average.

The Major 

Civil Engineering is a people-serving profession, concerned with the 
planning, design, construction and operation of large, complex systems 
such as buildings and bridges, water purification and distribution systems, 
highways, rapid transit and rail systems, ports and harbors, airports, 
tunnels and underground construction, dams, power generating systems 
and structural components of aircraft and ships. Civil engineering also 
includes urban and city planning, water and land pollution and treatment 
problems, and disposal of hazardous wastes and chemicals. The design 
and construction of these systems are only part of the many challenges 
and opportunities faced by civil engineers. The recent revolution in 
computers, communications and data management has provided new 
resources that are widely used by the professional civil engineer in 
providing safe, economical and functional facilities to serve our society. 

Requirements for M ajor 

At both the undergraduate and graduate levels, the department offers 
programs of study in all six major areas of specialization in civil 



engineering: construction engineering and management, environmental 
engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, 
transportation engineering, and water resources and remote sensing. A 
total of 131 credit hours is required for a bachelor's degree with emphasis 
in basic science (mathematics, chemistry and physics), engineering 
science (mechanics of materials, statics and dynamics), basic civil 
engineering core courses, and 16 credits of technical electives that maybe 
selected from a combination of the six areas of civil engineering 
specialization. The curriculum provides a sensible blend of required 
courses and electives, which permits students to pursue their interests 
without the risk of overspecialization.

A computer scientist is concerned with problem solving. Problems range 
from abstract (determining what problems can be solved with computers 
and the complexity of the algorithms that solve them) to practical (design of 
computer systems easy for people to use). Computer scientists build 
computational models of systems including physical phenomena (weather 
forecasting), human behavior (expert systems, robotics), and computer 
systems themselves (performance evaluation). Such models often require 
extensive numeric or symbolic computation. 

Requirements for Major 

The course of study for a Computer Science major must satisfy all of the 
following requirements: 

1. A grade of C or better in the following courses: 

a. CMSC 112 or an acceptable score on the Advanced Placement 
exam or the Department's CMSC 112 exemption exam. 

b. CMSC 150 or an acceptable score on the Department's CMSC 
150 exemption exam. 

c. CMSC 113 

d. At least 24 credit hours at the 300-400 levels, including CMSC 
311, CMSC 330 and at least 15 credit hours of the following 
CMSC courses:

Software Engineering/ Programming Languages: 430; 435; 

Theory of Computation: 451; 452; 

Numerical Analysis: one of 460 or 466; 467. 

Note: CMSC 421, 451, and 452 require CMSC 251 as an 

additional prerequisite. Courses in Numerical Analysis require 

MATH 240 or 241 as additional prerequisites. Students without 

either of these prerequisites must choose their 15 credits hours 

from the remaining courses in the other three areas. 

2. MATH 140 and 141 (or Math 250, Math 251). A STAT course which 
has MATH 141 (or a more advanced mathematics course) as a 
prerequisite, and one other MATH, STAT, or MAPL course which as 
MATH 141 (or a more advanced mathematics course) as a 
prerequisite. A grade of C or better must be earned in each of the 
courses. No course that is cross-listed as CMSC maybe counted in 
this requirement. 

3. A minimum of 12 additional credit hours of 300-400 level courses in 
one discipline outside of computer science with an average grade of

foreign languages, mathematics, social studies, speech/ English, and 
theatre/ English. The Bachelor of Science degree is offered in art, 
mathematics, music, science, social studies and speech/ English, and 
theatre/ English. In the areas of art and music, teachers are prepared to 
teach in both elementary and secondary schools. All other programs 
prepare teachers for grades five through twelve. 

All pre-professional and professional courses must be completed with a 
grade of C or better prior to student teaching. 

Foreign Language Requirement Bachelor of 
Arts Degree 

All students who pursue the Bachelor of Arts degree in secondary 
education are required to complete two years (12 semester hours) or the 
equivalent of a foreign language at the college level. If students have had 
three years of one foreign language or two years of each of two foreign 
languages as recorded on their high school transcripts, they are not 
required to take any foreign languages in the College, although they may 
elect to do so. 

If students are not exempt from the foreign language requirements, they 
must complete courses through the 104-level of a modern language or 204 
level of a classical language. 

In the modern languages: French, German, and Spanish students should 
take the placement test in the language in which they have had work if they 
wish to continue the same language; their language instruction would start 
at the level indicated by the test. With classical languages, students would 
start at the level indicated in this catalog. 

For students who come under the provisions above, the placement test 
may also serve as a proficiency test and may be taken by a student any 
time (once a semester) to try to fulfill the language requirement. 

Students who have studied languages other than French, German, or 
Spanish, or who have lived for two or more years in a foreign country where 
a language other than English prevails, shall be placed by the chair of the 
respective language section, if feasible, or by the chairs of the foreign 
language departments. Native speakers of a foreign language shall satisfy 
the foreign language requirements by taking 12 semester hours of English. 

English Education 

A major in English Education requires 45 semester hours in English and 
speech. All electives in English must be approved by the student's advisor. 
Intermediate mastery of a modern or classical language is required. 
Changes in major requirements are under review. Students should check 
with a departmental advisor for updated information.

Changes in major requirements are under review. Students should check 
with a departmental advisor for updated information. 

The curriculum in music leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in education 
with a major in music education. It is planned to meet the demand for 
specialists, supervisors, and resource teachers in music in the schools. 
The program provides training in the teaching of general music/ choral and 
instrumental music and leads to certification to teach music at both 
elementary and secondary school levels in Maryland and most other states. 
There are two options. The general music/ choral option is for students 
whose principal instrument is voice or piano; the instrumental option is for 
students whose principal instrument is an orchestral or band instrument. 
Students are able to develop proficiency in both options by taking 
additional courses. 

Auditions are required for admission to the program. All students teach and 
are carefully observed in clinical settings by members of the music 
education faculty. This is intended to ensure the maximum development 
and growth of each student's professional and personal competencies. 
Each student is assigned to an advisor who guides him or her through the 
various stages of advancement in the program of music and music 
education.

facilitate the acquisition of new movement skills, as well as creative and 
scholarly insights in dance, the curriculum provides a structured breadth of 
experience at the lower level. At the upper level students may either involve 
themselves in various general university electives, or they may concentrate 
their energies in a particular area of emphasis in dance. Although an area 
of emphasis is not mandatory, many third and fourth year students are 
interested in studying a singular aspect of dance in depth, such as 
performance, choreography, production/ management, or general studies 
(encompassing dance history, literature and criticism). 

The dance faculty is composed of a number of distinguished teachers, 
choreographers, and performers, each one a specialist in his or her own 
field. Visiting artists throughout the year make additional contributions to 
the program. There are several performance and choreographic 
opportunities for all dance students, ranging from informal workshops to 
fully mounted concerts both on and off campus. 

Requirements for M ajor 

Students must complete 57 semester hours of dance credits. Of these, 18 
hours of modern technique and four hours of ballet technique are required. 
Majors may not use more than 72 DANC credits toward the total of 120 
needed for graduation. In addition to the 22 technique credits required, 
students must distribute the remaining 35 credits as follows: 

DANC 208, 308, 388-Choreographyl, II, III 9 

DANC 102- Rhythmic Training 2 

DANC 109- Improvisation 2

Economics 91 



The Major 

Economics is the study of the production, pricing, and distribution of goods 
and services within societies. Economists study such problems as inflation, 
unemployment, technical change, poverty, environmental quality, and 
foreign trade. Economists also apply economics to such diverse areas as 
crime, health care and the elderly, discrimination, urban development, and 
developing nation problems. 

Two characteristics of modern economics receive special attention in the 
department's program. Government policies have profound effects on how 
our economic system performs. Government expenditures, regulations, and 
taxation either directly or indirectly affect both households and firms. 
Second, there is a growing interdependency among economies throughout 
the world. Extensive worldwide markets exist in which goods and services 
are traded, and capital and investments move across national boundaries. 
Economic events in one nation are often quickly transmitted to other 
nations. 

Economists study these phenomena through the development of 
systematic principles and analytic models which describe how economic 
agents behave and interact. These models are the subject of empirical 
testing, often using computers and extensive data sets. 

The interests of the faculty, as reflected in the course offerings, are both 
theoretical and applied. As a large diverse department, the Economics 
department offers courses in all of the major fields of economic study. The 
department's program stresses the application of economic theory and 
econometrics to current problems in a large number of fields. Many 
courses in the department's program analyze the role of the government 
and public policies on the economy. 

The program is designed to serve both majors and non-majors. The 
department offers a wide variety of upper-level courses on particular 
economic issues which can be taken after one or two semesters of basic 
principles. These courses can be especially useful for those planning 
careers in law, business, or the public sector. The program for majors is 
designed to serve those who will seek employment immediately after 
college as well as those who will pursue graduate study. 

Economics majors have a wide variety of career options in both the private 
and public sectors. These include careers in state and local government, 
federal and international agencies, business, finance and banking, 
journalism, teaching, politics and law. Many economics majors pursue 
graduate work in economics or another social science, law, business or 
public administration (public policy, health, urban and regional planning, 
education, and industrial relations). 



Requirements for M ajor 

In addition to the university's general education (CORE) requirements, 
requirements for the Economics major are as follows: 



the 



(1) Economics (and Mathematics) Courses (36 hours) 

Economics majors must earn 33 credit hours in Economics, and 3 
credit hours in Calculus (MATH 220 or 140), with a grade of C or 
better in each course. All majors must complete 12 hours of core 
requirements. The core requirements include ECON 201, ECON 
203, ECON 305 and ECON 306. 

Students must also complete 21 hours in upper level Economics 
courses: 

a) three hours in statistics; ECON 321 or BMGT 230 or BMGT 231 
or STAT 400; 

b) three hours in economic history or comparative systems; ECON 
310, ECON 311, ECON 315, ECON 380, or ECON 410; 

c) nine hours in courses with at least one semester of 
intermediate theory or economic statistics (ECON 321) as a 
prerequisite. The following courses presently have this 
prerequisite: ECON 402, ECON 407, ECON 416, ECON 417, 
ECON 422, ECON 423, ECON 425, ECON 431, ECON 441, 
ECON 454, ECON 456, ECON 460, ECON 470, and ECON 476; 

d) six other hours in any upper-division Economics except ECON 
386. 

(2) Additional Supporting Courses (15 hours) 

Students must earn 15 hours of credit in upper-division courses in 
addition to the 36 hours of Economics (and Mathematics) courses 
listed above and the University's CORE requirements. Upper 
division courses include all courses with a 300 number and above 
except the Junior English writing class. Additional mathematics 



courses beyond the required mathematics course (MATH 220 or 
140), and computer programming courses at the 200-level and 
above may be counted as fulfilling the Additional Support Course 
Requirement. Additional economics courses may be included 
among the 15 hours of supporting courses. 

All courses meeting this Additional Support Course requirement must 
be completed with a grade of C or better and may not be taken pass-fail 
exept ECON 386, which can only be taken pass-fail. 

Study Sequences and Plans of Study 

Economics is an analytic discipline, building on a core of principles, analytic 
models, and statistical techniques. Students must begin with a foundation 
in mathematics and economic principles (ECON 201 and ECON 203). A 
more advanced, analytic treatment of economics is presented in 
intermediate theory (ECON 305 and ECON 306), which is a necessary 
background for in-depth study by economics majors. 

The department urges that the student take ECON 201 and 203 and MATH 
140 or 220 as soon as possible. Honors versions of ECON 201 and 203 
are offered for students seeking a more rigorous analysis of principles, 
departmental honors candidates, and those intending to attend graduate 
school. Admission is granted by the department's Office of Undergraduate 
Advising or the University Honors Program. 

Courses in applied areas at the 300-level may be taken at any point after 
principles. However, majors will benefit by completing ECON 305, ECON 
306, and ECON 321 or its equivalent immediately upon completion of 
principles. While most students take ECON 305 and 306 in sequence, they 
may be taken concurrently. Courses at the 400-level are generally more 
demanding, particularly those courses with intermediate theory as a 
prerequisite. 

Empirical research and the use of computers are becoming increasingly 
important in economics. All students are well advised to include as many 
statistics, econometrics, and computer programming courses in their 
curriculum as possible. 

Those students planning to pursue graduate study in economics must 
begin to prepare themselves analytically for graduate work by focusing on 
theory, statistics, and mathematics in their undergraduate curriculum. 
These students should consider the advanced theory courses (ECON 407 
and ECON 417) and the econometrics sequence (ECON 422 and ECON 
423). Mastery of the calculus and linear algebra is essential for success in 
many of the top graduate schools. Students should consider MATH 140, 
MATH 141, MATH 240 (or MATH 400), MATH 241 and MATH 246 as very 
useful preparation. 

Advising 

The department has academic advisors providing advising on a walk-in 
basis in the Office of Undergraduate Advising, 3127ATydings. 

Honors 

The Economics Honors Program provides economics majors with the 
opportunity for advanced study in a seminar format, with faculty supervision 
of seminar papers and an honors thesis. The Honors Program is designed 
for students intending to attend graduate school or those seeking an in- 
depth study of economic theory and its application to economic problems. 

The Honors Program is a 12-hour sequence, culminating in the completion 
of a senior thesis. Students must complete ECON 396 (Honors Workshop) 
and ECON 397 (Honors Thesis) in their senior year, as well as two of the 
following five courses: ECON 407, 417, 422, 423, 425. Students must 
complete these 12 hours with a GPA of 3.5. ECON 396 is offered only in 
the fall term. 

To be eligible for admission, a student must have completed 15 hours of 
economics with a GPA of 3.25. Interested students should meet with the 
Director of Undergraduate Studies at the earliest possible date to review 
their curriculum plans and to apply for admission to the program. 

Awards 

The Dudley and Louisa Dillard Prize, currently $1,000, is awarded to the 
outstanding Economics junior and senior with a broad liberal arts program.

The Major 



The Electrical Engineering major is intended to prepare students to function 
as effective citizens and engineers in an increasingly technological world as 
well as in science and engineering subjects. Depth as well as breadth is 
required in the humanities and social sciences to understand the 
economic, ecologic, and human factors involved in reaching the best 
solutions to today's problems. 

The basic foundation in mathematical, physical, and engineering sciences 
is established in the first two years of the curriculum. A core of required 
Electrical Engineering courses is followed by a flexible structure of electives 
that allows either breadth or specialization. Appropriate choices of electives 
can prepare an Electrical Engineering major for a career as a practicing 
engineer and/ or for graduate study.

students who wish to continue their engineering studies on the graduate 
level in one of the new interdisciplinary fields of engineering such as 
environmental engineering, bio-medical engineering, systems engineering, 
and many others; and finally (3) to educate those students who do not plan 
a normal professional career in a designated engineering field but wish to 
use a broad engineering education so as to be better able to serve in one 
or more of the many auxiliary or management positions of engineering 
related industries. The program is designed to give the maximum flexibility 
for tailoring a program to the specific future career plans of the student. To 
accomplish these objectives, the program has two optional paths: an 
engineering option and an applied science option. 

The engineering option, which is ABET accredited, should be particularly 
attractive to those students contemplating graduate study or professional 
employment in the interdisciplinary engineering fields, such as 
environmental engineering, bio-engineering, bio-medical, systems and 
control engineering, and manufacturing engineering, or for preparatory entry 
into a variety of newer or interdisciplinary areas of graduate study. For 
example, a student contemplating graduate work in environmental 
engineering might combine chemical and civil engineering for his or her 
program; a student interested in systems and control engineering graduate 
work might combine electrical engineering with aerospace, chemical, or 
mechanical engineering. 

The applied science option, which is not ABET accredited, should be 
particularly attractive to those students who do not plan to pursue a 
professional engineering career but wish to use the rational and 
developmental abilities fostered by an engineering education as a means 
of furthering career objectives. Graduates of the applied science option 
may aspire to graduate work and an ultimate career in a field of science, 
law, medicine, business, or a variety of other attractive opportunities which 
build on a combination of engineering and a field of science. Entrance 
requirements for law and medical schools can be met readily under the 
format of this program. In the applied science program, any field in the 
university in which the student may earn a B.S. degree is an acceptable 
secondary science field, thus affording the student a maximum flexibility of 
choice for personal career planning.

General Regulations for the B.S. Engineering 
Degree 

All undergraduate students in engineering will select their major field 
sponsoring department at the beginning of their second year regardless of 
whether they plan to proceed to a designated or an undesignated degree. A 
student wishing to elect the undesignated degree program may do so at 
anytime following the completion of the sophomore year, or a minimum of 
50 earned credits towards any engineering degree, and at least one 
semester prior to the time the student expects to receive the 
baccalaureate. As soon as the student elects to seek an undesignated 
baccalaureate in engineering, the student's curriculum planning, guidance, 
and counseling will be the responsibility of the "Undesignated Degree 
Program Advisor" in the primary field department. The student must file an 
"Application for Admission to Candidacy for the Degree of Bachelor of 
Science in Engineering" with the dean's office of the A. J ames Clark School 
of Engineering. The candidacy form must be approved by the chair of the 
primary field department, the primary engineering, and the secondary field 
advisors and the college faculty committee on "Undesignated Degree 
Programs." This committee has the responsibility for implementing all 
approved policies pertaining to this program and reviewing and acting on 
the candidacy forms filed by the student. 

Specific university and school academic regulations apply to this 
undesignated degree program in the same manner as they apply to the 
conventional designated degree programs. For example, the academic 
regulations of the university apply and the school requirement of 2.0 GPA in 
the major field during the junior and senior years applies. For the purpose 
of implementation of such academic rules, the credits in the primary 
engineering field and the credits in the secondary field are considered to 
count as the "major" for such academic purposes. 



Minimum Requirements 

Listed below are the minimum requirements for the B.S. Engineering 
degree with either an engineering option or an applied science option. The 
66 semester credit hours required for the completion of the junior and 
senior years are superimposed upon the freshman and sophomore 
curriculum of the chosen primary field of engineering. The student, thus, 
does not make a decision whether to take the designated or the 
undesignated degree in an engineering field until the beginning of the junior 
year. In fact, the student can probably delay the decision until the spring 
term of the junior year with little or no sacrifice, thus affording ample time 
for decision-making. Either program may be taken on the regular four-year 
format or under the M aryland Plan for Cooperative Engineering Education.

Engineering sciences, for the purpose of this degree, are those courses in 
the A. James Clark School of Engineering prefixed by ENES or in any 
engineering field including the primary or secondary field of engineering 
concentration. 

1 A minimum of 50 percent of the course work in the mathematics, physical 
sciences, engineering science and elective areas must be at the 300 or 
400 course number level. 

3 All of the courses used to fulfill the fields of concentration requirements 
(36 semester hours in the engineering option and 30 in the applied science 
option) must be at the 300 course number level or above. In addition, three 
courses with laboratory experience should be incorporated into the 
program. 

4 For the applied science option each student is required, unless specifically 
excused; and if excused, 15 semester hours of approved electives will be 
required to complete satisfactorily a senior level project or research 
assignment relating the engineering and science fields of concentration. 
s ln the engineering option, the six semester hours of electives must be 
technical (math, physical sciences, or engineering sciences), but may not 
be in the primary or secondary fields of concentration. In the applied 
science option, the approved electives should be selected to strengthen 
the student's program consistent with career objectives. Courses in the 
primary or secondary fields of concentration may be used to satisfy the 
approved electives requirement. 

'For the engineering option, the program must contain the proper design 
component, as specified by the ABET requirements. It is the responsibility 
of students and their advisors to ensure that the requirements are satisfied 
by the appropriate selection of courses in the primary and secondary fields 
of concentration. As part of the required design component, all students, 
except those choosing Nuclear Engineering as a primary field, must 
complete ENME 404.

The Major 

The major in Family Studies emphasizes an understanding of the family as 
the primary social institution linking individuals to their world. The program 
has three interrelated foci: 1) the family as a unique and dynamic social 
unit, 2) the development and functioning of the individuals within the 
family, and 3) the relationship of the family to its larger socio-cultural, 
historical and economic context. The course of study stresses a working 
knowledge of the development of individuals throughout the family life 
span, interpersonal relations, and resource use. Education about family life 
issues such as family life enrichment, intergenerational relations, family 
crises, legal problems, and changing family forms and lifestyles are 
studied. Intervention strategies alleviating and preventing family problems 
and an understanding of the reciprocal relationships between families and 
the policies, practices, and management of institutions and organizations 
are offered. The curriculum prepares students to be educators and have 
careers in direct service roles and mid-level management and policy 
positions emphasizing family. Opportunities exist in public, private and non- 
profit agencies and institutions working with family members, entire family 
units or family issues. Graduates also will be prepared for graduate study 
in the family sciences, human services administration, and other social and 
behavioral science disciplines and professions.

Emeritus: Bryan 

The Major 

Fire Protection Engineering is concerned with the applications of scientific 
and technical principles to the growth, mitigation, and suppression of fire. 
This includes the effects of fire on people, on structures, on commodities, 
and on operations. The identification of fire hazards and their risk, relative 
to the cost of protection, is an important aspect of fire safety design. 

The practice of fire protection engineering has developed from the 
implementation and interpretation of codes and standards directed at fire 
safety. These safety codes contain technical information and prescriptions 
derived from experience and research. Research has also led to 
quantitative methods to assess aspects of fire and fire safety. Thus, fire 
protection engineers need to be versed in the current technical 
requirements for fire safety and in the scientific principles that underlie fire 
and its interactions. 

The fire protection engineering student receives a fundamental engineering 
education involving the subjects of mathematics, physics, and chemistry. 
The program builds on other core engineering subjects of materials, fluid 
mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer with emphasis on principles 
and phenomena related to fire. Fluid mechanics includes applications to 
sprinkler design, suppression systems, and smoke movement. Heat 
transfer introduces the student to principles of evaporation for liquid fuels. 
The subject of combustion is introduced involving premixed and diffusion 
flames, ignition and flame spread, and burning processes. Laboratory 
experience is gained by being exposed to standard fire tests and 
measurements. Design procedures are emphasized for systems involving 
suppression, detection, alarm, and building safety requirements. The 
background and application of codes and standards are studied to prepare 
the student for practice in the field. System concepts of fire safety and 
methods of analysis are presented. A senior design or research project is 
required which gives the student an opportunity to explore issues beyond 
the normal classroom environment. 

In general, the curriculum is designed to give the student a grounding in the 
science and practice of fire safety. The field touches on many disciplines 
and its scientific basis is expanding. It is an engineering discipline that is 
still growing, and offers a variety of excellent career opportunities, covering 
a wide spectrum involving safety assessment reviews to hazards analysis 
and research.

The Major 

The Department of Geography offers programs of study leading to the 
Bachelor of Science degree. Many students find that the multiple 
perspectives of geography form an excellent base for a liberal arts 
education. The abilities to write clearly and to synthesize information and 
concepts are valued highly in geographical education and practice. 
Students of geography must master substantive knowledge either in the 
physical/ natural sciences or in the behavioral/ social sciences in addition 
to methodological knowledge. International interests are best pursued with 
complementary study in foreign languages and area studies. 

The central question in geographical study is "where?" Geographers 
research locational questions of the natural environment, of social and 
economic systems, and of past human activity on the land. Students of 
geography must master a variety of techniques that are useful in locational 
analysis, including computer applications and mapping, map making or 
cartography, air-photo interpretation and remote sensing, field observation, 
statistical analysis, and mathematical modelling. 

Increasingly, geographers apply their combined methodological and 
substantive knowledge towards the solution of society's problems. Some 
graduates find geography to be an excellent background for careers in 



defense and intelligence, journalism, law, travel and tourism, the nonprofit 
sector, and business and management. Most professional career positions 
in geography require graduate training. Many geographers take positions in 
scientific research, planning, management and policy analysis for both 
government and private agencies. 

Major Requirements Including Program Options 

Within any of the specializations available in the geography major program 
it is possible for students to adjust their programs to fit their individual 
interests. The geography major totals thirty-seven semester hours. In 
addition to the thirty-seven semester hours, the geography major is 
required to take an additional fifteen semester hours of supporting course 
work outside of the department. The hours can be either in one department 
or in an area of concentration. An area of concentration requires that a 
written program of courses be reviewed and placed on file by the 
department advisor. See Professor Cirrincione, 1125 LeFrak Hall, 405-

Introduction to Geography 

The 100 -level geography courses are general education courses for 
persons who have had no previous contact with the discipline in high 
school or for persons planning to take only one course in geography. They 
provide general overviews of the field or in one of its major topics. Credit 
for these courses is not applied to the major. 



Related Programs 

Geography/ Cartography Program 

The Geography Department offers an area of specialization in Cartography 
for students with special interests in map design, compilations, and 
reproduction. Course offerings exist in thematic mapping, cartographic 
history and theory, map evaluation, map-photo-image interpretation, 
computer-assisted cartography, spatial statistics, and geographic 
information systems. Students concentrating in Cartography must take the 
Geography core courses, totalling eight hours; elective systematic 
geography courses, totalling nine hours; and Cartography/ Geographic 
technique courses, totalling 15 hours. Supporting area courses must be 
taken from a list provided by the department. All math programs should be 
approved by a departmental advisor. 

Geography Minor and Secondary Education Geography 
Specialization 

Secondary Education majors with a concentration in geography are required 
to take 27 hours in the content field, GEOG 201, 202, 203, 211, or 
another upper-level course reflecting this interest. The remaining 18 hours 
of the program consist of three hours of regional geography and 15 hours 
of upper-division systematic courses. For majors in elementary education 
and others needing a geography course for teaching certification, GEOG 
100 is the required course. 

Geography minors should take at least GEOG 201, 202, 203, and 211 in 
the geography core and 310 is recommended. As with the major, these 
courses should be taken before any other geography courses. 

Internship Opportunities 

The department offers a one-semester internship program for 
undergraduates (GEOG 384 and 385). The goal of the program is to 
enhance the intellectual growth and the career opportunities of 
undergraduates. The internship provides students an opportunity to expand 
their understanding of the field by linking the theoretical aspects of 
geography acquired in the classroom to the applied aspects operating in a 
practice situation. The internship program is open only to geography juniors 
and seniors. All interns must have completed the following prerequisites: 
GEOG 201, 202, 203, 211, 305, and 310. An application form from the 
undergraduate geography advisor must be submitted one semester before 
the internship is desired. See Professor Cirrincione, 1125 LeFrak Hall (405- 
4053).

The Major 

Geology is the basic science of the earth. In its broadest sense, geology 
concerns itself with planetary formation and modification with emphasis on 
the study of the planet Earth through the application of the principles of 
physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics to the understanding of the 
composition, behavior and history of our planet. Geologic studies involve 
the earth's internal and external structure and materials, chemical and 
physical processes and its physical and biological history. 

Geology encompasses such subjects as the development of life as 
evidenced by the fossil record, the mechanics of crustal movement and the 
associated production of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the evolution 
of the oceans and their interaction with the continents, the origin and 
occurrence of mineral and fuel resources and the evaluation of the human 
impact on the natural environment. 

Geological scientists find employment in governmental, industrial and 
academic establishments. In general, graduate training is expected for 
advancement to the most rewarding positions. Although some sectors of 
the geological science, such as the petroleum industry, are subject to 
cyclical employment conditions, most areas are enjoying a strong 
employment outlook. Employment potential is strong in such specialties as 
hydrology and groundwater, mineral resource consumption, land use 
planning and virtually all areas of environmental studies. At this time, 
students with the Bachelor of Science, particularly those with supportive 
training in statistics and computer science, can find challenging 
employment. 

The Geology program includes a broad range of undergraduate courses to 
accommodate both geology majors and students interested in selected 
aspects of the science of the earth. Each undergraduate completes an 
individual research project under the direction of a faculty member. 

Requirements for M ajor 

The Geology curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of industry, 
graduate school and government. It offers a choice in emphasis areas: 
general geology and environmental geology; further, students may select, 
as their option, geology electives that are designed for particular interest. 

All required geology courses must be completed with a grade of C or better. 
An average of C is required in the supporting courses. Courses required for 
the B.S. in geology are listed below. Some courses require field trips for 
which students are expected to pay for room (if required), board, and part 
of the transportation costs. Field camp is taken during the summer at 
institutions other than UMCP offering camps approved by the Department.

The Department of Government and Politics offers programs for the general 
student as well as for students who are interested in careers in 
government, the public sector, politics, or in foreign assignments, teaching, 
a variety of graduate programs and law schools. Satisfactory completion of 
requirements leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree in government and politics. 

The study of politics is both an ancient discipline and a modern social 
science. The origin of the discipline can be traced back to the earliest 
times when philosophers, statesmen, and citizens studied the nature of 
government justice, responsibility, and the consequences of government's 
action. More recently, the study of politics has also emphasized scientific 
observations about politics. Today, the discipline reflects a broad effort to 
collect data about politics and governments utilizing relatively new 
techniques developed by all of the social sciences. 

The Department of Government and Politics combines both philosophical 
and scientific concerns in its overall program as well as in specific courses. 
It emphasizes such broad areas as political development, policy analysis, 
social justice, political economy, conflict, and human rights. These broad 
conceptual areas are integral components of study in the discipline. The 
areas are commonly referred to as American government and politics; 
comparative government; political theory; international affairs; public 
administration; public law; public policy and political behavior. 

Majoring in Government and Politics and The 
Academic Review 

All majors are subject to a performance review. To meet the provisions of 
the review, students must complete (1) GVPT 100, GVPT 170, and ECON 
201 with a minimum average of 2.6 for the three courses and (2) a 
minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0. 

Freshm an M ajors and Acad em ic Review 

Entering freshmen can gain admission to the Department of Government 

and Politics uoon admission to the University. Such students are to oass 



Health Education 101 



the performance review by the time they have completed 45 credits at the 
University. Students who do not meet this standard will be required to 
select another major. 

Transfer Majors. New transfer students to the University as well as on- 
campus students changing majors to Government and Politics will be 
required to meet the performance review (as identified above) by the time 
they have completed 30 hours after transferring to the department. 

In order to be admitted to Government and Politics, transfer students will 
be required to meet the following set of gateway requirements: (1) 
completion of GVPT 100, GVPT 170, and ECON 201 or 205 (only one, 
ECON 201 or 205, may be attempted) with a minimum average of 2.6; and 
(2) attainment of a minimum cumulative GPA for all college-level work 
attempted. The required GPA is set each year and may vary from year to 
year depending upon available space. 

Appeals. Students who anticipate that they will be or who actually are 
unsuccessful in passing their performance review on time may appeal to 
the Director of Undergraduate Studies for a postponement or second review. 
Such appeals for postponement or second review will require documentation 
of unusual, extenuating, or special circumstances. The student will be 
notified in writing of the appeal decision. 

Requirements for Major 

Government and Politics majors must complete 36 semester hours of GVPT 
courses with a minimum grade of C in each course. At least 18 of the thirty- 
six credits must be in upper-level courses and all majors are required to 
complete GVPT 100, GVPT 170, and either GVPT 241, 441 or GVPT 442. 

In addition, all majors must complete ECON 201, an approved skills option 
(a foreign language or three quantitative courses from a select list), and a 
secondary area of concentration (a minor) in another department or 
approved interdisciplinary area. All courses used to satisfy these 
requirements must be completed with a minimum grade of C. 

Honors Program 

All students majoring in government may apply for admission to the GVPT 
Honors Program. Additional information concerning the Honors Program 
may be obtained at the department offices. 

Internships 

The department offers students a variety of internship experiences. Only 
nine hours of GVPT internship credit will apply to the 36 hours needed in 
the major. In no case may more than 12 internship credits be counted 
towards the 120 credits needed to graduate. Internships are generally open 
only to GVPT majors with junior standing and a 3.0 GPA.

The Major 

Hearing and speech sciences is an inherently interdisciplinary field, 
integrating knowledge from the physical and biological sciences, medicine, 
psychology, linguistics, and education in order to understand human 
communication and its disorders. The department curriculum leads to the 
Bachelor of Arts degree. An undergraduate major in this field is an 
appropriate background for graduate training in speech-language pathology 
or audiology, as well as for graduate work in other disciplines requiring a 
knowledge of normal or disordered speech, language, or hearing. The 
student who wishes to work professionally as a speech-language 
pathologist or audiologist must obtain the M.A. degree in order to meet 
national certification requirements, and most state licensure laws. 

The hearing and speech sciences curriculum is designed in part to provide 
supporting course work for majors in related fields, so most course 
offerings are available to both departmental majors and non-majors. 
Permission of instructor may be obtained for waiver of course prerequisites 
for non-majors wishing to take hearing and speech courses of interest. 

Requirements for M ajor 

A student majoring in hearing and speech sciences must complete 30 
semester hours of required courses (HESP 202, HESP 300, HESP 305, 
HESP 311, HESP 400, HESP 402, HESP 403, HESP 404, HESP 407, and 
HESP 411) and six semester hours of electives in the department to satisfy 
major course requirements. No course with a grade less than C may count 
toward major course requirements. In addition to the thirty-six semester 
hours needed for a major, twelve semester hours of supporting courses in 
statistics and other related fields are required. For these twelve hours, a C 
average is required. 

A guide to the major is available through the department office in room 
0100, LeFrak. 

Advising 

Information on advising for hearing and speech sciences may be obtained 
by calling the department office, 405-4214. 



Special Opportunities 

The department operates a Hearing and Speech Clinic, 405-4218, that 
serves the campus and surrounding area, and provides an in-house 
opportunity for the clinical training of students. Department facilities also 
include several well-equipped research laboratories and a language 
preschool. 

Student Organizations 

Hearing and speech majors are invited to join the departmental branch of 
the National Student Speech-Language and Hearing Association (NSSLHA).

Students are also encouraged to spend at least one summer or semester 
in China (Taiwan or the People's Republic of China) or Japan in intensive 
language study under one or another of the university's exchange programs 
with foreign universities or at other approved centers of higher education. 

Hebrew Language and Literature 

The Hebrew Program provides, both to beginners and to those with 
previous background, an opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills in 
Hebrew language, literature, culture, and thought. Elementary and 
Intermediate level language courses develop effective communication skills 
in modern Hebrew. Upper-level language courses emphasize reading 
comprehension, vocabulary enrichment, and writing skills. More advanced 
students focus on the analytical study of major classical and modern 
Hebrew texts. In addition, courses are offered in English (no knowledge of 
Hebrew required) in the areas of Bible, Ancient Near East, Rabbinic 
thought, J ewish Philosophy, and Hebrew literature in translation. 

While there is no Hebrew major, students wishing to focus on Hebrew 
language as a primary subject may do so through a concentration on 
Hebrew within the Jewish Studies major (see Jewish Studies program). A 
certificate is also available to students qualifying for a minor. Consult the 
J ewish Studies office for requirements. 

Students must take language acquisition courses sequentially, i.e., 101, 
102, 201, 202, etc. Once credit has been received in a higher-level 
language acquisition or grammar course, a lower-level course may not be 
taken for credit. 



History 103 

Hebrew may be used to meet university and college language requirements. 

Honors and Awards 

Several forms of recognition for those excelling in Hebrew are available: 
membership in Eta Beta Rho, the Hebrew Honor Society, the B'nai Zion 
Award. 

Students are encouraged to apply for residence in the Hebrew suite of the 
Language House, and are encouraged to spend some time studying at an 
Israeli University. The University of Maryland sponsors a semester program 
at Tel Aviv University. Scholarships for study in Israel are available through 
the Meyerhoff Center forj ewish Studies. 

Internship Program 

This program allows students to gain practical experience by working in 
Washington/ Baltimore area firms, corporations, and social service 
organizations that are East Asia-related, as well as in various branches of 
the Federal government. Students are also invited to apply for the East 
Asian Studies Certificate. Please check the appropriate entry for details.

The Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture offers two 
undergraduate majors, one leading to a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in 
Horticulture and one leading to a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) 
degree. Horticulture majors may choose from three options in Horticultural 
Production, Horticultural Science and Landscape Management. Each major 
prepares students for either graduate study or entry into horticultural and 
landscape related industries or businesses. Advanced studies leading to a 
Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) degree are 
available to qualified students interested in research, teaching and/or 
agricultural extension. 

Students majoring in Horticulture are required to study fundamental 
science as a basis for solving problems of world food supply and 
environmental concerns. Horticulture is a very diverse profession that has 
programs ranging from fruit, vegetable, floral and nursery crop production to 
urban forest and landscape management. It requires a broad knowledge of 
plant diversity, physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology and 
environmental ecology. Horticulture graduates are in high demand world- 
wide in traditional agricultural production as well as the growing fields 
of biotechnology, bioremediation and natural resource management. 

The landscape architecture (BLA) curriculum addresses environmentally and 
socially responsible planning and design. The curriculum focuses on 
regional, local and site-specific land use issues that are influenced by the 
rapid urbanization of the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area and that 
impact the ecosystems of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Throughout the 
four-year program students learn to design creatively and appropriately for 
places in both built and natural environments. Students take a series of 
lecture and studio design courses that are organized within four categories: 
design and graphic communication, plants and environmental resources, 
site engineering and professional practice, and design history and theory. 
Due to the sequential nature of the program, students are encouraged to 
enroll in their first year, but transfer students may also apply. The BLA 
program is a limited enrollment program (see the Admissions section in 
this catalog for general Limited Enrollment Program (LEP) admissions 
policies. For further information, contact the College of Agriculture at 314- 
8375).

The M ajor 

The Department of Kinesiology offers two undergraduate degree programs 
to satisfy different needs of students. Students may choose to major in 
Physical Education or in Kinesiological Sciences. Descriptions of each 
program follow. 

Physical Education Major 

The Physical Education degree program is designed to lead to K-12 teacher 
certification in Maryland. Maryland teaching certificates are reciprocal with 
most other states. While this program is designed to provide preparation 
for individuals to teach in public school settings, it also provides an 
excellent preparation for those wishing to pursue other professional 
opportunities in sport, exercise or physical activity. Also, due to the strong 
scientific foundation of the degree program, an appropriate background is 
established for future graduate work for those who desire to continue their 
studies in any area involving human movement and sport. Many courses 
require proper sequencing and prerequisites. Early advisement with the 
program coordinator is urged to all interested students.

Advising 

Advising is strongly recommended for all students majoring in Physical 
Education and Kinesiological Sciences although it is not mandatory. 
Students are assigned a permanent faculty member to assist them with 
registration procedures, program updates and other information. Students 
are advised to follow closely the program sheets which outline the order in 
which courses should be taken to allow proper progression through the 
degree programs. Departmental contacts are: Physical Education— Mrs. 
Lynn Owens, 405-2495 and Kinesiological Sciences— Dr. Marvin Scott, 
405-2480. 



The Physical Education Program requires a grade of C or better in all 
required course work 

Admission 

Admission to the College of Education is required upon completion of 45 
applicable credits. Students must take the California Achievement Test 
and have a 2.5 GPA after 45 credits to gain admission. Additional 
information is available from the College of Education. 

Kinesiological Sciences Major 

This curriculum offers students the opportunity to study the body of 
knowledge of human movement and sport, and to choose specific 
programs of study which allow them to pursue a particular goal related to 
the discipline. There is no intent to orient all students toward a particular 
specialized interest or occupation. This program provides a hierarchical 
approach to the study of human movement. First, a core of knowledge is 
recognized as being necessary for all students in the curriculum. These 
core courses are considered foundational to advanced and more specific 
courses. Secondly, at the "options" level, students may select from two 
sets of courses which they believe will provide the knowledge to pursue 
whatever goal they set for themselves in the future. To further strengthen 
specific areas of interest, students should carefully select related studies 
courses and electives.

The Major 



The Linguistics Department offers courses on many aspects of language 
study and an interdisciplinary major leading to a Bachelor of Arts. Language 
is basic to many human activities and linguistics relates to many other 
disciplines which include work on language. 

Work on language has provided one of the main research probes in 
philosophy and psychology for most of the 20th century. It has taken on a 
new momentum in the last 30 years and language research has proven to 
be a fruitful means to cast light on the nature of the human mind and on 
general cognitive capacity. Several courses focus on a research program 
which takes as a central question: How do children master their native 
language? Children hear many styles of speech, variable pronunciations 
and incomplete expressions, but, despite this flux of experience, they come 
to speak and understand speech effortlessly, instantaneously and 
subconsciously. Research aims to discover how this happens, how a 
person's linguistic capacity is represented in the mind, and what the 
genetic basis for it is. Students learn how various kinds of data can be 
brought to bear on their central question, how that question influences the 
shape of technical analyses. 



108 Management and Organization 



The major program in Linguistics is designed for students who are primarily 
interested in human language per se, or in describing particular languages 
in a systematic and psychologically plausible way, or in using language as a 
tool to reveal some aspect of human mental capacities. Such a major 
provides useful preparation for professional programs in foreign languages, 
language teaching, communication, psychology, speech pathology, artificial 
intelligence (and thus computer work). 

Requirements for M ajor 

Students obtain a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics by following one of two 
tracks: "Grammars and Cognition" or "Grammatical Theory and a 
Language." In each case, students take a common core of LING courses: 
LING 200, 240, 311-312, 321-322. Beyond this core, students must 
specialize by completing an additional nine hours in LING plus one of the 
following: either 18 hours from selected courses in HESP, PHIL and PSYC, 
or 18 hours in a particular language. The specializations in detail are: 

Grammars and Cognition 

LING 440— Grammars and Cognition 

Two 300/400 LING electives 

PHIL 466— Philosophy of Mind 

HESP 400— Speech and Language Development in Children 

OR HESP 498-Seminarin Psycholinguistics 

PSYC 442— Psychology of Language 

Three 300/400 electives in HESP, PHIL, PSYCorCMSC 

Grammatical Theory and a Language 

LING 410 — Grammars and Meaning and LING 411— Comparative 

Syntax OR 

LING 420-Word Formation and LING 412-Advanced Phonology 

LING 300/ 400 elective 

Five required courses in the language of specialization. 

A course in the history or structure of the language of specialization. 

When possible, the language of specialization should be the same as the 
one used to satisfy the college Foreign Language Requirement. The 
specialization normally includes those courses that make up the 
designated requirement for a major in the chosen language. Special 
provision may be made for students who are native speakers of a language 
other than English and wish to conduct analytical work on the grammar of 
that language. A student may also study grammatical theory and English; 
the 18 hour concentration in English consists of courses in the history and 
structure of English to be selected in consultation with the student's 
Linguistics advisor. 

For a double major, students need 27 credits in Linguistics, which normally 
include the LING courses for one of the two specializations.

The Major 

The development and production of novel materials has become a major 
issue in all fields of engineering. Materials which are strong and light at the 
same time are needed for space structures; faster electro-optical switching 
materials will result in improved mass communications; and high 
temperature plastics would improve the efficiency of transportation 
systems. Many of today's materials requirements can be met by 
composites. The materials engineering program provides the student with 
an interdisciplinary science-based education to understand the structure 
and resulting properties of metallic, ceramic, and polymeric materials. A 
wide variety of careers is open to graduates of this program ranging from 
production and quality control in the traditional materials industries to the 
molecular construction of electronic materials in ultra-clean environments, 
and to the applications of materials in electronic packages. The application 
of materials to solve reliability problems and advanced reactors are also 
career options. 

Students may use Materials Engineering as a field of concentration in the 
Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree program. 

Requirements for M ajor 

The curriculum is composed of: (1) the required University CORE (general 
education) requirements; (2) a core of mathematics, physics, chemistry, 
and engineering courses required of all engineering students; (3) 12 credits 
of courses selected within a secondary, minor field; (4) 23 credits of

The Major 

Nuclear Engineering deals with the practical use of nuclear energy from 
nuclear fission, fusion, and radioisotope sources. The major use of nuclear 
energy is in electric power generation. Other uses are in the areas of 
chemical processing, medicine, instrumentation, and isotope trace 
analysis. The nuclear engineer is primarily concerned with the design and 
operation of energy conversion devices ranging from very large reactors to 
miniature nuclear batteries, and with the use of nuclear reactions in many 
environmental, biological, and chemical processes. The nuclear engineer is 
also concerned with the effects of electronics and materials exposed to a 
radiation environment and the utilization of ionizing radiation in 



manufacturing. Probabilistic risk assessment techniques are also 
introduced at the undergraduate level. Because of the wide range of uses 
for nuclear systems, the nuclear engineer finds interesting and diverse 
career opportunities in a variety of companies and laboratories, including 
areas of materials, manufacturing, and reliability. Students may use 
nuclear engineering as a field of concentration in the Bachelor of Science in 
Engineering degree program. 

Requirements for M ajor 

The curriculum is composed of: (1) the required University general 
education (CORE) requirements; (2) a core of mathematics, physics, 
chemistry, and engineering sciences required of all engineering students; 
(3) 15 credits of courses selected within a secondary field; (4) 27 credits of 
nuclear engineering courses including ENNU 215, 440, 450, 455, 460,

The program in mathematics leads to a degree of Bachelor of Science in 
mathematics and offers students training in the mathematical sciences in 
preparation for graduate work, teaching and positions in government or 
industry. 

Requirements for Major 

Each mathematics major must complete, with a grade of C or better in 



each course, the following: 

1. The introductory sequence MATH 140, 141, 240, 241 or the 
corresponding honors sequence MATH 250, 251. 

2. Eight MATH/ MAPL/ STAT courses at the 400-level or higher, at least 
four of which are taken at College Park. The eight courses must 
include: 

(a) At least one course from MATH 401, 403, 405. 

(b) At least one course from MATH 246, 414, 415, 436, 462. If 
MATH 246 is chosen, it will not count as one of the eight 
Upper-level courses. 

(c) One course from MAPL 460, 466. (This assumes knowledge of 
CMSC 104 or equivalent.) 

(d) MATH 410 (completion of MATH 250-251 exempts the 
student from this requirement and (e) below; students receive 
credit for two 400-level courses). 

(e) A one-year sequence which develops a particular area of 
mathematics in depth, chosen from the following list: 

(i) MATH 410-411 
(ii) MATH 403-404 
(iii) MATH 446-447 
(iv) STAT 410-420. 
(v) MATH/ MAPL 472-473 

(f) The remaining 400-level MATH/ MAPL/ STAT courses are 
electives, but cannot include any of: MATH 400, 461, 478- 
488, or STAT 464. EDCI 451 maybe used to replace one of the 
upper-level elective courses. Also, students with a strong 
interest in applied mathematics may, with the approval of the 
Undergraduate Office, substitute two courses (with strong 
mathematics content) from outside the Mathematics 
Department for one upper-level elective course. 

3. One of the following supporting three course sequences. These are 
intended to broaden the student's mathematical experience. Other 
sequences might be approved by the Undergraduate Office but they 
would have to make use of mathematical ideas, comparable to the 
sequences on this list. 

(a) i) PHYS 161, 262, 263 
ii) PHYS 171, 272, 273 

iii) PHYS 141, 142, and an upper-level physics course 
approved by the Mathematics Department 

(b) ENES 102, PHYS 161, ENES 220 

(c) i) CMSC 112, 113, and one of CMSC 311, 330 
ii) CMSC 112, 150, 251 

(d) CHEM 103, 113, and one of CHEM 227, 233 

(e) ECON 201, 203, and one of ECON 305 or 306 

(f) BMGT220, 221, 340. 

Within the Department of Mathematics there are a number of identifiable 
areas which students can pursue to suit their own goals and interests. 
They are briefly described below. Note that they do overlap and that 
students need not confine themselves to one of them. 

1. Pure mathematics: the courses which clearly belong in this area are: 
MATH 402, 403, 404, 405, 406, 410, 411, 414, 415, 417, 430, 
432, 436, 437, 445, 446, 447, 452, STAT 410, 411, 420. 
Students preparing for graduate school in mathematics should 
include MATH 403, 405, 410 and 411 in their programs. MATH 463 
(or 660) and MATH 432 (or 730) are also desirable. Other courses 
from the above list and graduate courses are also appropriate. 

2. Secondary teaching: the following courses are required to teach 
mathematics at the secondary level: MATH 402 or 403, 430 and 
EDCI 451. (EDCI 451 is acceptable as one of the eight upper-level 
math courses required for a mathematics major.) These additional 
courses are particularly suited for students preparing to teach: 
MATH 406, 445, 463, STAT 400 and 401. EDHD 300, EDPA 301, 
EDCI 350 or 455, and EDCI 390 are necessary to teach; before 
registering for these courses, the student must apply for and be 
admitted to teacher education. 

3. Statistics: For a student with a Bachelor of Arts seeking work 
requiring some statistical background, the minimal program is STAT 
400—401. To work primarily as a statistician, one should combine 
STAT 400 — 401 with at least two more statistics courses, most 
suitably, STAT 440 and STAT 450. A stronger sequence is STAT 
410, 420, 450. This offers a better understanding and wider 
knowledge of statistics and is a general purpose program (i.e., does 
not specify one area of application). For economics applications 
STAT 400, 401, 440, 450, and MAPL 477 should be considered. 
For operations research MAPL 477 and/or STAT 411 should be 
added or perhaps substituted for STAT 450. To prepare for graduate 
work, STAT 410 and 420 give the best background, with STAT 411, 
440, 450 added at some later stage. 

4. Computational mathematics: there are a number of math courses 
which emphasize the computational aspects of mathematics 



Mechanical Engineering 111 



including the use of the computer. They are MAPL 460, 466, 467, 
477, and MATH 450, 475. Students interested in this area should 
take CMSC 112, 113 as early as possible, and CMSC 420, 211 are 
also suggested. 

Applied mathematics: the courses which lead most rapidly to 
applications are the courses listed above in 3 and 4 and MATH 401, 
414, 415, 436, 462, 463, 464, and MATH/MAPL 472 and 473. A 
student interested in applied mathematics should obtain, in addition 
to a solid training in mathematics, a good knowledge of at least one 
area in which mathematics is currently being applied. Concentration 
in this area is good preparation for employment in government and 
industry or for graduate study in applied mathematics. 



Statistics and Probability and Applied 
Mathematics 

Courses in statistics and probability and applied mathematics are offered 
by the Department of Mathematics. These courses are open to non-majors 
as well as majors, and carry credit in mathematics. Students wishing to 
concentrate in the above may do so by choosing an appropriate program 
under the Department of M athematics. 

Mathematics Education 



Advising 

Advising for math majors is mandatory. Students are required to sign up for 
an advising appointment at the math undergraduate office window (1117 
Mathematics Building), beginning the week before preregistration. 

Honors 



The Mathematics Honors Program is designed for students showing 
exceptional ability and interest in mathematics. Its aim is to give a student 
the best possible mathematics education. Participants are selected by the 
Departmental Honors Committee during the first semester of their junior 
year. To graduate with honors in mathematics they must pass a three-hour 
written comprehensive examination. Six credits of graduate work are also 
required. A precise statement of the requirements may be found in the 
Math Undergraduate Office. 

The department also offers a special mathematics department honors 
analysis sequence (MATH 250,251) for promising freshmen with a strong 
mathematical background (including calculus). Enrollment in the sequence 
is normally by invitation but any interested student may apply to the 
Mathematics Departmental Honors Committee for admission. Participants 
in the University Honors Program may also enroll in special honors sections 
of the lower-level mathematics courses (MATH 140H, 141H, 240H, 241H, 
246H). 



The mat 



,.- ...athematics departmental honors calculus sequence and the 
University Honors Program are distinct, and enrollment in one does not 
imply acceptance in the other. Neither honors calculus sequence is a 
prerequisite for participating in the Mathematics Honors Program, and 
students in these sequences need not be mathematics majors. 

Awards 

Aaron Strauss Scholarships. Up to two are awarded each year to 
outstanding junior Math Majors. The recipient receives full remission of (in- 
state) tuition and fees. Applications may be obtained early in the spring 
semester from the Mathematics Undergraduate Office, 1117 Mathematics 
Building. 

Higginbotham Prize: A monetary award is made to an outstanding junior 
math major in the spring. 

Carol Karp Award: A monetary award is made to a senior math major for an 
outstanding achievement in Logic. 

Milton Abromowitz Award: A monetary award is made to an outstanding 
senior math major in the spring. 

Placement in Mathematics Courses 



The Department of Mathematics has a large offering to accommodate a 
great variety of backgrounds, interests, and abilities. The department 
permits students to take any course for which they have the appropriate 
background, regardless of formal course work. For example, students with 
a high school calculus course may be permitted to begin in the middle of 
the calculus sequence even if they do not have advanced standing. 
Students may obtain undergraduate credit for mathematics courses in any 
of the following ways: passing the appropriate CEEB Advanced Placement 
Examination, passing standardized CLEP examinations, and through the 
department's Credit-by-Examination. Students are urged to consult with 
advisors from the Department of Mathematics to assist with proper 
placements. 



Students completing an undergraduate major in mathematics and planning 
to be certified to teach should contact the College of Education.

The Major 

The primary function of the mechanical engineer is to create devices, 



112 Meteorology 



machines, structures, or processes which are used to advance the welfare 
of people. Design, analysis, synthesis, testing, and control are the 
essential steps in performing this function. Certain aspects of the science 
and art of engineering are of particular importance to achieve a successful 
product or service. Some of these aspects are those relating to the 
generation and transmission of mechanical power, the establishment of 
both experimental and theoretical models of mechanical systems, 
computer interfacing, the static and dynamic behavior of fluids, system 
optimization, and engineering and production management. 

Because of the wide variety of professional opportunities available to the 
mechanical engineer, the curriculum is designed to provide students with a 
thorough training in basic fundamentals. These include: physics, chemistry, 
mathematics, computers, mechanics of solids and fluids, thermodynamics, 
materials, heat transfer, controls, and design. The curriculum includes 
basic laboratory courses in fluid mechanics, materials engineering, 
electronic instrumentation and measurements, and a senior laboratory 
which provides an introduction to professional research and evaluation 
procedures. Students are introduced to the concept of design via machine 
design and energy conversion design courses, and seniors participate in a 
comprehensive design course during their final semester which is 
frequently linked with an advisor and a problem from industry. This 
experience helps students anticipate the type of activities likely to be 
encountered after graduation and also helps to establish valuable contacts 
with professional engineers. 

In order to provide flexibility for students to follow their own interests in 
Mechanical Engineering, seniors may choose from a wide variety of elective 
courses such as courses in robotics, computer-aided design, computer- 
aided manufacturing, electronic packaging, microprocessor theory, ocean 
engineering, finite element analysis, heating ventilation and air 
conditioning, solar energy, combustion, product design, manufacturing, 
advanced fluid flow, and advanced mechanics, to list only a few. A small 
number of academically superior undergraduate students are able to 
participate in Special Topic Problems courses in which a student and 
faculty member can interact on a one-to-one basis. 

Requirements for M ajor 

The freshman curriculum is the same for all engineering departments and 
programs. Please consult the A. James Clark School of Engineering entry.

The Department of Meteorology offers a limited number of courses of 
interest to undergraduate students. Undergraduate students interested in 
pursuing a bachelor's degree program preparatory to further study or work 
in meteorology are urged to consider the Physical Sciences program. It is 
important that students who anticipate careers in Meteorology consult the 
Physical Sciences program advisor representing the Department of 
Meteorology as early as possible in their studies. 

Because of its interdisciplinary nature, the study of the atmosphere 
requires a firm background in the basic sciences and mathematics. To be 
suitably prepared for 400-level courses in meteorology, the student should 
have the following background: either the physics-major series PHYS 171, 
272, 273 or the series PHYS 161, 262, 263; the mathematics series 
MATH 140, 141, 240, 241, 246 and either the series CHEM 103, 113 or 
CHEM 105, 115. Consult the Approved Course Listing for electives in 
meteorology. 

Students who may be preparing for graduate education in meteorology are 
strongly advised to pursue further course work from among the areas of 
physics, applied mathematics, chemistry, computer science, and statistics 
to supplement course work in meteorology. With proper counseling from the 
Department of Meteorology advisor, the student wishing to graduate with 
an M.S. degree in meteorology may achieve that goal in five and a half 
years from the inception of university studies.

Professors: Ahrens, Bean, Castonguay, Moser-Veillon, Prather, Schlimme, 

Sims 

Associate Professor: Jackson 

Assistant Professors: Blake, Boyle 

Lecturer: Curtis 

Emeritus: Wiley 

The department offers three areas of emphasis: dietetics, food science, 
and human nutrition and foods. Each program provides for competencies in 
several areas of work; however, each option is designed specifically for 
certain professional careers. 

Requirements for Major 

The Dietetics major develops an understanding and competency in food, 
nutrition, dietetics management, clinical nutritional care, nutrition 
education and community nutrition. The Dietetics program is approved by 
the American Dietetic Association, and qualifies students, after completion 
of a post-baccalaureate internship, to sit for the exam to become a 
Registered Dietitian. 

The Food Science major is concerned with the application of the 
fundamental principles of the physical, biological, and behavioral sciences 
and engineering to understand the complex and heterogeneous materials 
recognized as food. The food science program is accredited by the Institute 
of Food Technologists and prepares students for careers in food industry 
and food safety. 

The Human Nutrition and Foods major emphasizes the physical and 
biological sciences in relation to nutrition and the development of 
laboratory skills in these areas. Students in this major frequently elect to 
go on to graduate or medical school. 

Each of these courses of study includes a set of major subject courses 
offered primarily within the department, plus supporting courses taken 
outside the department. To graduate, students must also meet the 
requirements of the university (e.g., those specified in the CORE Program) 
and the requirements of the College of Agriculture. 

Many courses in these majors are sequential, and some are offered only 
once per year. Contact a departmental advisor for help with scheduling. 

Grades. All students are required to earn a C grade or better in courses 
applied toward satisfaction of the major. This includes all required courses 
with a prefix of NFSC, as well as certain required courses in supporting 
fields. A list of these courses for each program may be obtained from the 
department office.

The Major 

The Department of Philosophy seeks to develop students' logical and 
expository skills and their understanding of the foundations of human 
knowledge and of value, in accordance with its conception of philosophy as 
essentially an activity rather than a body of doctrine. Thus, in all courses 
students can expect to receive concentrated training in thinking clearly and 
inventively and in expressing themselves exactly about philosophical 
issues. This training has general applicability to all professions in which 
intellectual qualities are highly valued, such as law, medicine, government, 
publishing and business management. With this in view the major in 
philosophy is designed to serve the interests of students who are preparing 
for careers outside of philosophy, as well as the interests of those who are 
preparing for graduate study in philosophy. The department also offers a wide 
range of courses in the philosophy of various disciplines for non-majors. 

Requirements for M ajor 

For students matriculating before June 1, 1991: 

(1) a total of at least 30 hours in philosophy, not including PHIL 100 
or PHIL 386 

(2) PHIL 271, 310, 320, 326, 341, and at least two courses 
numbered 399 or above; 

(3) a grade of C or higher in each course counted toward the 
fulfillment of the major requirement. 

Fifteen hours of supporting courses are required to be selected in 
accordance with guidelines available in the Philosophy Department Lounge,

Geology: Stifel 
Engineering: Walston 
Mathematics: Wolfe 
Meteorology: Robock 
Physics: Kim 

Purpose 

This program is suggested for many types of students: those whose 
interests cover a wide range of the physical sciences; those whose 
interests have not yet centered on any one science; students interested in 
a career in an interdisciplinary area within the physical sciences; students 
who seek a broader undergraduate program than is possible in one of the 
traditional physical sciences; students interested in meteorology; those 
who are interested in problems such as air pollution, energy usage, ozone 
depletion, global climate, groundwater pollution or nuclear energy; students 
whose interests are in the environmental, earth and atmospheric sciences; 
pre-professional students (pre-law, pre-medical); or students whose 
interests in business, technical writing, advertising or sales require a broad 
technical background. This program can also be useful for those planning 
science-oriented or technical work in the urban field; the urban studies 
courses must be taken as electives. Students contemplating this program 
as a basis for preparation for secondary school science teaching are 
advised to consult the Science Teaching Center staff of the College of 
Education for additional requirements for teacher certification. 

The Physical Sciences Program consists of a basic set of courses in 
physics, chemistry, and mathematics, followed by a variety of courses 
chosen from these and related disciplines: astronomy, geology, 
meteorology, computer science, and engineering. Emphasis is placed on a 
broad program as contrasted with a specialized one. 

Students are advised by members of the Physical Sciences committee. 
This committee is composed of faculty members from each of the 
represented disciplines. Assignment of an advisor depends on the interest 
of the student, e.g., one interested principally in chemistry will be advised 
by the chemistry member of the committee. Students whose interests are 
too general to classify in this manner will normally be advised by the chair 
of the committee. 

Curriculum 

The basic courses include MATH 140, 141 and one other math course for 
which MATH 141 is a prerequisite (11 or 12 credits); CHEM 103 and 113, 
or 105 and 115 (8 credits); PHYS 161, 262, 263 (11 credits); or PHYS 
171, 272, 273, 275, 276, 375 (14 credits); CMSC 104 (4 credits) or 
CMSC 105 (3 credits) or CMSC 106 (4 credits) or CMSC 112/113 (8 
credits) or ENES 240 (3 credits). 



i ny jilj 



The choice of the physics sequence depends on the student's future aims 
and his/her background. PHYS 161, 262, 263 is the standard sequence 
recommended for most physical science majors. This sequence will enable 
the student to continue with intermediate level and advanced courses. 
Students desiring a strong background in physics are urged to enroll in 
PHYS 171/375. This is the sequence also used by physics majors and 
leads directly into the advanced physics courses. 

Beyond these basic courses the student must complete twenty-four credits 
at the 300- or 400-level, chosen from any three of the following disciplines: 
chemistry, physics, mathematics (including statistics), astronomy, geology, 
meteorology, computer science, and one of the engineering disciplines, 
subject to certain limitations. The 24 distributive credits must be at the 
upper-level (300/400) and shall be distributed so that at least six credits 
are earned in each of the three selected areas of concentration. A grade of 
C or better must be earned in both basic and distributive requirement 
courses. 

All Physical Sciences students must have a planned program of study 
approved by the Physical Sciences Committee. In no case shall the 
Committee approve a program which has fewer than 18 credits in the three 
distributive areas of the Physical Sciences program to be completed, at the 
time the program is submitted. Engineering courses used for one of the 
options must all be from the same department, i.e., all must be ENAE 
courses, or a student may use a combination of courses in ENCH, ENNU, 
and ENMA, which are offered by the Department of Chemical Engineering 
and the Department of Materials and Nuclear Engineering; courses offered 
as engineering sciences, ENES, will be considered as a department for 
these purposes. 

Because of the wide choice and flexibility within the program, students are 
required to submit for approval a study plan during their sophomore year, 
specifying the courses they wish to use in satisfying the requirements of 
the major. Students who wish to depart from the stipulated curriculum may 
present their proposed program for approval by the Physical Sciences 
Committee. An honors program is available to qualified students in their 
senior year. 

Honors 

The Physical Sciences Honors Program offers students the opportunity for 
research and independent study. Interested students should request 
details from their advisor.

The Major 

Psychology can be classified as a biological science (Bachelor of Science 
degree) and a social science (Bachelor of Arts degree) and the department 
offers academic programs related to both of these fields. The 
undergraduate curriculum in psychology is an introduction to the methods 
by which the behavior of humans and other organisms is studied, and to 
the biological conditions and social factors that influence such behavior. In 
addition, the undergraduate program is arranged to provide opportunities 
for learning that will equip qualified students to pursue further study of 
psychology and related fields in graduate and professional schools. 
Students who are interested in the biological aspects of behavior tend to 
choose a program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree, while those 
interested primarily in the impact of social factors on behavior tend to 
choose the Bachelor of Arts degree. The choice of program is made in 
consultation with an academic advisor. 



Requirements for M ajor 

Graduation requirements are the same for the Bachelor of Science and 
Bachelor of Arts degrees. Students must take at least 35 credits in 
Psychology including 14 credits at the 400-level. PSYC 386, 387, 478 and 
479 may not be included in those 35 required credits. The required 
courses include PSYC 100, 200 and two laboratory courses chosen from 
PSYC 401, 410, 420, 440, and 450. In order to assure breadth of 
coverage, Psychology courses have been divided into four areas. The 35 
credit total must include at least two courses from two of the four areas 
and at least one course from each of the remaining areas. The areas and 
courses are: 

Area I: 206, 301, 310, 400, 401, 402, 403, 404, 405, 410, 415; 

Area II: 221, 341, 420, 421, 423, 424, 440, 442, 443, 444; 

Area III: 235, 330, 332, 334, 337, 353, 354, 355, 356, 357, 432, 

433, 435, 436,455, 456, 457, 458; 
Area IV: 336, 361, 450, 451, 452, 460, 462, 463, 464, 465, 466 

In addition, all students must complete (a) either MATH 111, or MATH 140 
or MATH 220; (b) one of the following laboratory courses: BIOL 105*, 
CHEM 103, 104, 105, 113, 115, KNES 360, PHYS 121, 141, 142, 171, 
262, 263, ZOOL 201, 202, 210; and (c) ENGL 101 or an English literature 
course from a prescribed department list. 

*Note BIOL 101/102 does not satisfy the Lab Science requirement for 
Psychology. BIOL 101/102 is considered a duplication of credit with 
BIOL 105. 

Students pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree must complete a 15-credit 
supporting course sequence in relevant math and/ or science courses 
including two laboratory courses and nine credits at the advanced level. 
The 15 credits must be completed with at least a 2.0 average. Students 
should consult the current Psychology Undergraduate Program Guide for a 
list of approved advanced Math-Science Courses. 



A grade of C or better must be earned in all 35 credits of psychology 
courses used for the major and all credits used to meet the Math-English- 
Science supporting course sequence. No course may be used as a 
prerequisite unless a grade of C is earned in that course prior to its use as 
a prerequisite. The prerequisite for any required laboratory course is a 2.5 
grade point average in PSYC 100 and 200 and completion of the Math- 
English-Science supporting course sequence. The departmental grade point 
average will be a computation of grades earned in all psychology courses 
taken (except 386, 387, 478, and 479) and the courses selected to meet 
the Math-English-Science sequence. The GPA in the major must be at least 
2.0.

Kaminski and Tismaneanu (Government and Politics), Majeska (History) 
Assistant Professors: David-Fox (History), Martin, Ogorodnikova (Germanic 
and Slavic), Sharp (Art History and Archaeology) 

The Major 

The Russian Area Studies Program offers courses leading to a Bachelor of 
Arts in Russian Studies. Students in the program study Russian and Soviet 
culture as broadly as possible, striving to comprehend it in all its aspects 
rather than focusing their attention on a single element of human behavior. 
It is hoped that insights into the Russian way of life will be valuable not 
only as such but as a means to deepen the students' awareness of their 
own society and of themselves. 

Course offerings are in several departments: Germanic and Slavic 
Languages and Literatures, Government and Politics, History, Economics, 
Geography, Philosophy, and Sociology. Students may plan their curriculum 
so as to emphasize any one of these disciplines, thus preparing for 
graduate work either in the Russian area or in the discipline. 

Students in the program must meet the general degree requirements of the 
university and college from which they graduate. They must complete 24 
hours in Russian language and literature courses selected from among the 
following equivalent courses: RUSS 101, 102, 201, 202, 301, 302, 303, 
321, 322, 401, 402, 403, and 404. In addition, students must complete 
24 hours in Russian area courses at the 300-level or above. These 24 
hours must be taken in at least five different departments, if appropriate 
courses are available, and may include language-literature courses beyond 
the required 24 hours. 

It is recommended but not required that the student who plans on doing 
graduate work complete at least 18 hours at the 300-level or above (which 
may include courses applicable to the Russian Area program) in one of the 
above-mentioned departments. It is also recommended that students who 
plan on doing graduate work in the social sciences, government and 
politics, economics, geography, and sociology take at least two courses in 
statistical methods. 

The student's advisor will be the program director or the designate. The 
student must receive a grade of C or better in all the above-mentioned 
required courses. 

In addition to the courses in Russian language, literature, and culture 
taught in the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and 
Literatures, the following Russian Area courses are offered. Students 
should check the Schedule of Classes each semester. 

ECON 380— Comparative Economic Systems 
ECON 482— Economics of the Soviet Union 
GEOG 325-Soviet Union 



GVPT 445-Russian Political Thought 

GVPT451-Foreign Policy of the U.S. S.R.

The Major 



Sociology is the scientific study of societies, institutions, organizations, 
groups, and individuals. Sociological studies range from the social factors 
that affect individuals, to group processes, and societal change. The 
strengths of the department are the study of population (demography), 
military sociology, political economy, social psychology, and the 
connections among gender, work, and family. 

A major in sociology offers (1) a general education especially directed 
toward understanding the complexities of modern society and its social 
problems by using basic concepts, research and statistical skills; (2) a 
broad preparation for various types of professions, occupations, and 
services dealing with people; and (3) preparation of qualified students for 
graduate training in sociology, social work, law, and business. Sociology 
also forms a valuable background for those interested in other fields or 
majors. Courses in sociology can be used as preparation for careers in 
government and private research, urban planning, personnel work, human 
resources management, and many other policy-making and administrative 
careers. 



Areas of Specialization 

Undergraduate specializations are available in research methods, social 
psychology, social demography, social institutions, and inequality. These 
specializations can often be integrated with a second major. This program 
versatility and the rich experiential learning possibilities of the Washington 
metropolitan area combine to make the sociology curriculum valuable 
preparation for a career choice. 

Requirements for M ajor 

Students in sociology must complete 50 hours of departmental 
requirements, none of which may be taken pass/ fail. Thirty-eight of these 
hours are in sociology course work, which must be completed with a 
minimum grade of C in each course; SOCY 100 should be taken in the 
freshman or sophomore year followed by SOCY 203. Three hours of 
mathematics (MATH 111 or its equivalent or higher) are required of majors 
as a prerequisite of SOCY 201. SOCY 202 follows SOCY 201. SOCY 441 
(stratification) and one additional upper-level methods course should be 
taken by the second semester of the junior year. 

The supporting course requirement for majors is 12 hours of a coherent

student's major substantive*** or research interests. These courses need 
not come from the same department, but at least six hours must be taken 
at the 400-level. It is strongly recommended that the student work out an 
appropriate supporting sequence for the particular specialization with the 
department advisor.

Further information on course work, internships, the departmental honors 
program, careers, and other topics may be obtained from the Sociology 
Undergraduate Advisor, 2108 Art/ Sociology Building, 405-6389. 

Fieldwork and Internship Opportunities 

Although internships are not a requirement for a major, students may wish 
to consider the internship program offered by the department or through 
the Experiential Learning Office located in Hornbake Library. Majors may 
receive up to six credits in a SOCY 386 when an internship/ volunteer 
position is combined with an academic project. A prerequisite of 12 credits 
in Sociology course work is required. 

Honors 

The Sociology Honors Program seeks to encourage and recognize superior 
scholarship by providing an opportunity for interested, capable, and 
energetic undergraduate students to engage in study in an area of the 
student's interest under the close supervision of a faculty mentor. The 
honors program is based upon tutorial study and independent research. 

Students who have an overall cumulative grade point average of at least 
3.3, a cumulative average of 3.5 in Sociology courses, and who have taken 
at least nine credits in Sociology may apply. Transfer students with 
equivalent academic records at other accredited institutions are also 
eligible. Admission to the program will be based upon academic 
performance, and the judgment of the Undergraduate Committee whether 
the applicant has sufficient maturity and interest to successfully complete 
the requirements for graduation with Honors. Further information on the 
honors program is available from the Sociology Undergraduate Office. 

Student Organizations 

The Sociology Collective, open to all Sociology majors, is organized by a 
group of interested undergraduates to fill student needs within the 
Sociology community. The Collective provides information about topics of 
interest, including department activities, career planning, and relevant 
changes with the university, and strives to enhance the sense of 
community within the department. Representatives of the Collective 
participate on faculty committees within the department and thereby 
provide the undergraduate perspective on policy issues. 

Alpha Kappa Delta is the National Honor Society for Sociology majors. 
Membership is based on Sociology G. P. A. (3.0) and overall G.P.A. (3.0). 



Students may apply after they have completed 18 credits in Sociology 
course work. This organization's activities focus on providing tutoring 
services for undergraduates in the core courses.

disabilities. Graduates of the program are expected to master specific 
skills in each of these areas. 



Requirements for Major 



Students interested in majoring in Special Education must consult a 
departmental advisor as early as possible after matriculation at the 
university since the curriculum requires an extensive and sequenced 
program of studies. Students accepted as Special Education majors take a 
two-semester sequence of generic special education courses and 
practicum experiences during the third year (Semesters V and VI). These 
courses provide the student with a solid foundation in theory and practice 
related to the education of all children with disabilities across a wide range 
of ages. During Semester VI, students select one of the following four 
areas of specialization: 

1. Severe Disabilities (SD) 

2. Early Childhood Special Education (EC) 

3. Educationally Handicapped (EH) 

4. Secondary and Transition Special Education (ST) 

Students select two specialty areas and are accepted into one of their two 
specialty area choices. Course work in each of these four areas is 
designed to develop expertise with a specific special education population. 
Students work directly with children or youth with disabilities during each 
semester, leading up to student teaching during the last semester. 
Specialty area programs include 12 to 15 hours of electives. 

Combined Bachelor's/ Master's Program 

Selected undergraduate students majoring in special education will be 
eligible for dual application of credit to both the bachelor's and master's 
degrees. A student desiring graduate credit should apply for admission to 
the Graduate School during the last semester of the fourth year. If admitted 
to the Graduate School, the student may select up to twelve credits (four 
courses) of specified course work from the fifth year of the undergraduate 
program to be applied simultaneously toward the credits required for the 
master's degree in special education at the University of Maryland. The 
selected courses may not include field practica or student teaching 
experiences. Students will be expected to fulfill supplemental requirements 
in the selected courses. To complete the master's degree, students must 
fulfill all Graduate School requirements for the degree, with the exception 
of the selected 400-level courses.

The Major 

The Women's Studies major offers students a coherent but flexible 
program of study examining scholarship and theory on the history, status, 
contributions, and experiences of women in diverse cultural communities, 
and on the significance of gender as a social construct and as an analytical 
category. Drawing from approximately 50 courses, many of which are 
crosslisted with other academic units, students will have the opportunity to 
design an emphasis within the major relevant to their special interests. 
Students will earn a minimum of 39 credit hours, distributed as indicated 
below. A number of courses may count in more than one category. At 
least 30 credits must be at or above the 300-level. No course with a grade 
less than C may be used to satisfy the requirements of the major. 
Students are required to design their programs in consultation with a 
Women's Studies advisory.

CAMPUS-WIDE PROGRAMS 



Air Force Aerospace Studies Program (ROTC) 

2126 Cole Student Activities Bldg., 314-3242 

Director: Rensler 

Assistant Professors: Hammond, Overbey, Russo 

The Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) provides two 
programs for college men and women to earn a commission as a Second 
Lieutenant in the United States Air Force while completing their University 
degree requirements. To enter the AFROTC program, students should 
inform their advisor, and register for classes in the same manner as for 
other courses. 



Four-Year Program 

This program is composed of a General Military Course (GMC) and a 
Professional Officer Course (POC). The first two years (GMC), normally for 
freshmen and sophomores, give a general introduction to the Air Force and 
the various career fields. Students enrolled in the GMC program incur no 
obligation and may elect to discontinue the program at any time. The final 
two years (POC) concentrate on the development of leadership skills and 
the study of United States defense policy. Students must compete for 
acceptance into the POC. Students enrolled in the last two years of the 
program receive approximately $4,000 annually, tax free. 

Students in the four-year program who successfully complete the first two 
years of the program and are accepted into the POC program must attend 
four weeks of field training at a designated Air Force base during the 
summer after completing their sophomore year of college. 

Two-Year Program 

This program is normally offered to prospective juniors but may be taken by 
seniors and graduate students. The academic requirements for this 
program are identical to the final two years of the four-year program and 
students receive the same benefits (approximately $4,000 annually). 
During the summer preceding entry into the program, all candidates must 
attend six weeks of field training at a designated Air Force base. Students 
should start the application process as soon as possible— not later than 
the start of the Spring semester. 



General Requirements for Acceptance into the POC 

The student must complete the General Military Course and the field 
training session, pass the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test, be physically 
qualified, be in good academic standing, meet age requirements and be a 
U.S. citizen. Successful completion of the Professional Officer Course and 
a bachelor's degree or higher are prerequisites for a commission as a 
Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force. Additional information 
maybe obtained by telephoning the Office of Aerospace Studies, 314-3242.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES 



University Honors Program 

Anne Arundel Hall, 405-6771/3 

Director: Mack 

The University Honors Programs offer the university's most academically- 
talented students special educational and cultural resources. Students 
combine Honors course work with studies in their major to enhance their 
total educational experience. First- and second-year undergraduates broaden 
their intellectual horizons in Honors seminars and Honors versions of regular 
courses in the arts and sciences, most of which fulfill general education 
requirements. Juniors and seniors may apply to one of more than 30 
departmental or college Honors programs that give them the opportunity to 
work with faculty mentors on independent research projects. Students who 
prefer to propose their own individually-designed research programs may do so. 

The Honors Program offers challenging academic experiences characterized 
by small classes, active student participation, and an Honors faculty who 
encourage critical thinking and discussion. Individually guided research, 
field experience, and independent study are also important aspects of 
Honors work. 

Anne Arundel Hall, the Honors Living-Learning Center, is the center of the 
Honors Program, housing 100 students, the Honors Program staff, scholar- 
in-residence, computer lab, the Portz Library, seminar rooms, and lounges. 
Other Honors students live and study together on designated floors in 
various residence halls. 

Students may apply for admission to the UHP either as entering first-year 
students or as transfer students with fewer than 30 credits (excluding AP 
credits). Students with more than 30 credits transferring from an Honors 
Program in their previous school should contact the University Honors 
Program for information about campus Honors opportunities. Admission to 
the University Honors Program is by invitation. Most departmental and 
college Honors programs begin in the junior year. Please contact the

Individual Studies Program (IVSP) 

Division of Letters and Sciences 
1117 Hornbake Library, (314-9403) 

Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Studies: Beckley 

The Individual Studies Program provides an opportunity for students to 
create and complete individualized majors. To be accepted into the 
program, a student must: 

1) have a clearly-defined academic goal which cannot reasonably be 
satisfied in an existing curriculum at College Park; 

2) be able to design, with faculty assistance, a sequence of courses 
and other learning experiences which is judged to have adequate 
substance for the awarding of a degree in the special field of study; 
and 

3) have at least a 2.0 GPAand earn a minimum grade of C in designated 
major courses. 

Most IVSP majors are either a form of "area study" utilizing offerings from 
many departments, or a clear combination of two or more disciplines. Many 
include internships or independent study projects in the program. All work 
is done under the supervision of a faculty advisor. 

Applicants are required to write a detailed prospectus outlining their 
proposed program of study. They must meet the general education 
requirements according to year of entry. The process of applying often 
involves considerable consultation and several drafts of a prospectus, so it 
should be begun as early as possible. Students may be admitted to the 
Individual Studies Program after completion of 30 college credits and must 
be officially approved by the Individual Studies Faculty Review Committee 
prior to the final 30 credits. Individual Studies programs must be approved 
before students can declare Individual Studies as a major. 

Individual Studies provides three courses specifically for its majors: IVSP 
317, a one-credit progress report graded Satisfactory/ Fail; IVSP 318, an 
independent study course which students can use for a variety of out-of- 
class internship and research opportunities (a variable-credit course, it may 
be taken for a total of nine credits towards the degree); and IVSP 420, 
Senior Paper/ Project, required for all students during the final semester. 
The project is evaluated by three faculty members.

Advising for Law and the Health Professions 

Division of Letters and Sciences 

1117 Hornbake Library, 405-2793 or 314-8418 

Advisors: Health professions: Bradley, Hohenhaus Law: Crawford 

General Information 

Pre-Professional programs are designed to provide the necessary academic 
foundation required for entrance into professional schools. Some require 
two or three years of pre-professional study before admission to 
professional school. Others normally require completion of a bachelor's 
degree. Five programs, for which completion of a bachelor's degree is NOT 
a normal prerequisite, may be declared as the official undergraduate 
academic major: pre-dental hygiene, pre-medical and research technology, 



pre-nursing, pre-pharmacy, and pre-physical therapy. 

In contrast, seven programs, for which a bachelor's degree IS a normal 
prerequisite, are advisory ONLY and except in certain limited 
circumstances, as described herein, these cannot be declared as the 
official undergraduate academic major. These include pre-dentistry, pre-law, 
pre-medicine, pre-optometry, pre-osteopathy, and pre-podiatry. Students 
interested in such programs may choose from a wide variety of academic 
majors across campus. The pre-professional advisor can provide guidance 
concerning the choice of major. 

Successful completion of a pre-professional program at College Park does 
not guarantee admission to any professional school. Each professional 
school has its own admissions requirements and criteria, which may 
include grade point average in undergraduate courses, scores on 
admissions tests, a personal interview, faculty recommendations, and an 
evaluation from the pre-professional advisor. For admissions requirements, 
the student is urged to study the catalog of each professional school. 

All students are welcome to use the Letters and Sciences Resource Room 
in 0110 Hornbake for information on careers and on professional schools 
across the country. 

Pre-Dental Hygiene 

The Pre-Dental Hygiene program is designed to prepare students for 
entrance into the UMAB Dental Hygiene Program. THIS IS NOT INTENDED 
AS A PRE-DENTAL PROGRAM. 

The Dental School of the University of Maryland, located in Baltimore 
(UMAB), offers a baccalaureate program in dental hygiene, as well as a 
post-certificate program for registered dental hygienists who have 
completed a two-year accredited dental hygiene program and are interested 
in completing the requirements for a bachelor's degree. Completion of this 
two-year pre-professional curriculum is required before admission to UMAB 
for the two professional years.

Application and Admission 

High school students who wish to enroll in the pre-dental hygiene 
curriculum at College Park should request applications directly from the 
Admissions Office, the University of Maryland, College Park, Md. 20742. It 
is recommended that those preparing for a baccalaureate program in 
dental hygiene pursue an academic program in high school which includes 
biology, chemistry, math, and physics. 

Pre-dental hygiene students should begin the application process for 
professional school in fall of the sophomore year. UMAB applications and 
instructions are available in the advising office. Enrollment as a pre-dental 
hygiene student or as a registered dental hygienist does not guarantee 
admission to the Dental Hygiene Program on the Baltimore City campus 
(UMAB).

P re-Dentistry 

Advisor: Bradley 

The pre-professional program for pre-dental students is a program of 
advising for students preparing to apply to dental school. The advice is 
based on requirements and recommendations of American dental schools 
and the requirements for a baccalaureate at College Park. 

The recommendations made during advising are meant to prepare the 
student to take the Dental Admissions Test (DAT) in the spring of the junior 
year. Application to dental school is made during the summer-fall of the 
senior year. In addition to faculty letters of recommendation, most 
admissions committees request or require an evaluation from the student's 
pre-dental advisor. It is important, therefore, for the student to contact the 
pre-dental advisor early in the academic career and to become familiar with 
the proper procedures necessary in the evaluation and application process. 

For more information on the pre-dental advising program, contact the Pre- 
dental Advisor, 1117 Hornbake Library, University of Maryland, College 
Park, Md. 20742, 405-2793. 

There are two ways to prepare for admission to dental school: a four-year 
program is preferable, but a three-year program is possible. 

Four-Year Baccalaureate Program 

Most pre-dental students at College Park complete a four-year under- 
graduate degree prior to entrance into dental school. Students are 
encouraged to pursue a diversified curriculum, balancing humanities 
courses with science and mathematics courses. No specific major is 
required, favored, or preferred by dental school admissions committees. 

The four-year student will plan an undergraduate experience which includes 
courses to satisfy major and supporting area requirements, general 
education requirements, and the dental school admission requirements. 
The student's academic advisor will advise about the first two topics, while 
the Pre-Dental Advisor will advise about dental school admission 
requirements. 

Although specific admission requirements vary somewhat from dental 
school to dental school, the undergraduate courses which constitute the 
basic admission requirements and which prepare the student for the DAT 
are the following: 

Semester 
Credit Hours 

ENGL 101 and 391 — English Composition 3, 3 

CHEM 103,113-General Chemistryl, II 4, 4 

CHEM 233, 243-Organic Chemistryl, II 4, 4 

PHYS 121, 122 orPHYS 141, 142— Physics 4, 4 

Biology, minimum* 8 

* Although the minimum biology requirement is eight credits, the successful 
applicant will have more, including advanced training in biological sciences 
at the 300- to 400-level. PBIO 100, BIOL 101 and 124, and MICB 100 
should not be taken to meet this requirement. 

Three Year Arts-Dentistry Degree Program 

At the beginning of their third year, students whose performance during the 
first two years is exceptional may consider applying to the University of 
Maryland School of Dentistry after three years of college work rather than 
the usual four, under the combined arts-dentistry program. By the end of 
the third year at College Park, the student must have earned 90 academic 
credits, the last 30 of which must have been earned in residence. Within 
the 90 credits, the student must have completed all the general education 
requirements. In addition, because there are certain basic admission 
requirements which also prepare the student for the Dental Admissions 
Test, the 90 credits would include the following: 



Semester 
Credit Hours 

CHEM 103,113-General Chemistryl, II 4,4 

(or CHEM 143, 153-General and Analytical Chemistryl, II) 5,5 

CHEM 233, 243-Organic Chemistryl, II 4,4 

PHYS 121, 122-Fundamentals of Physics I, II 4,4 

(or PHYS 141, 142— Principles of Physics I, II) 4,4 

* Biological Science (minimum) 8 

* Although the minimum biology requirement is eight credits, the successful 
applicant will likely have more, including advanced training in biological 
sciences at the 300400 level. BOTN 104 and 105, BIOL 101 and 102, 
and MICB 100 may not be taken to meet this requirement. It should also 
be noted that many other schools of dentistry require mathematics 
(Calculus). Additional courses in biological sciences are suggested. 

Incoming students interested in this three-year combined degree program 
are strongly urged to consult the pre-dental advisor before registration for 
the first semester at College Park. 

Students accepted in the combined arts-dentistry program receive the B.S. 
degree (Arts-Dentistry) after satisfactory completion of the first year at the 
University of Maryland School of Dentistry upon the recommendation of the 
Dean of the School of Dentistry and approval of the University of Maryland 
at College Park. The Bachelor of Arts degree is awarded by the University of 
Maryland at College Park in August following the first year of dental school. 
The courses of the first year of dental school constitute the major; the 
courses listed above constitute the supporting area. 

Participation in the first three years of the combined degree program at 
College Park in no way guarantees admission to the University of Maryland 
School of Dentistry. Three-year students compete with four-year students 
for admission. It is therefore desirable to ensure that the work of the first 
three years be selected in such a way that the requirements of one of the 
normal College Park majors can be completed during a fourth year at 
College Park. 

P re-Law 

1117 Hornbake Library, 314-8418 
Advisor: Mary Crawford, J .D. 

Most law schools prefer applicants with a B.A. or B.S. degree; however, in 
some cases law schools will consider truly outstanding applicants with only 
three years of academic work. Most law schools do not prescribe specific 
courses which a student must present for admission, but do require that 
the student follow one of the standard programs offered by the 
undergraduate college. Law schools require that the applicant take the Law 
School Admission Test (LSAT), preferably in July, October, or December of 
the academic year preceding entry into professional school. 

Four-Year Baccalaureate Program 

No particular undergraduate major or special undergraduate courses are 
prerequisites for admission into law school. Students are encouraged to 
select a major in which they have a strong interest and expect to perform 
well. Course selections should be guided by the need to develop skill which 
are essential in preparing to perform well in law school, on the Law School 
Admissions Test (LSAT), and ultimately as a lawyer. These skill include 
imaginative and coherent thinking, critical reasoning, accurate and 
perceptive reading, and a strong command of the spoken and written 
language, including grammar. A broad liberal arts background, with 
evidence of high quality of work, will provide a strong foundation for law 
school. 



Three-Year Arts-Law Degree Program 

Students with exceptional records may apply to the School of Law of the 
University of Maryland under the Arts-Law program. Upon recommendation 
by the Dean of the University of Maryland Law School and approval by 
College Park, students admitted to the program may be awarded a B.A. 
degree (Arts-Law) following the completion of at least 30 credits of the law 
program. Minimum requirements for approval from College Park are 
completion of at least 90 credits (at least 30 from College Park) including 
the following: all university and general education requirements; at least 18 
credits limited to one department that are applicable to a recognized UMCP 
major with at least six credits at the 300-400 level; a minimum grade of C 
in the major courses. Participation in the three-year program is very 
competitive and in no way guarantees admission to the University of 
Maryland School of Law. Three-year students compete with four-year 
students for admission. 



Pre-Professional Programs 129 



Incoming students interested in this three-year combined-degree program 
are strongly urged to consult the pre-law advisor before registering for the 
first semester at College Park.

P re-Medicine 

Advisor: Bradley 

The pre-professional program for pre-medical students is a program of 
advising for students preparing to apply to medical school. The advice is 
based on requirements and recommendations of American medical schools 
and the requirements for a baccalaureate degree at College Park. The pre- 
medical advisor is prepared to assist students in setting career objectives, 



selecting undergraduate course work to meet the admissions criteria of the 
professional schools, and in all phases of the application process itself. 

The recommendations made during advising are meant to prepare the 
student to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) in the spring of 
the junior year or the following summer. Application to medical school is 
made during the summer-fall of the senior year. Medical admissions 
committees generally request or require an evaluation from the student's 
pre-medical advisor. It is important, therefore, for the student to contact 
the pre-medical advisor early in the academic career and to become 
familiar with the proper procedures necessary in the evaluation and 
application process. 

For more information on the pre-medical advising program, contact the Pre- 
medical Advisor, 1117 Hornbake Library, The University of Maryland, 
College Park, Md. 20742, 405-2793. 

There are two ways to prepare for admission to medical school; a four-year 
program is preferable, but a three-year program is possible.

* Although calculus is not an entrance requirement of all medical schools 
and is not included in the MCAT, one year of calculus is strongly 
recommended for the pre-professional student. 

* * Although the minimum biology requirement is eight credits, the 
successful applicant will have more, including advanced training in 
biological sciences at the 300400 level. PBIOL 100, BIOL 101 and 124,

sciences at the 300400 level. PBIOL 104 and 105, BIOL 101 and 102, 
and MICB 100 may not be taken to meet this requirement. It should also 
be noted that the best preparation for the MCATs and for admission to 
most schools would include additional courses in biology. 

Incoming students interested in this three-year combined degree program 
are strongly urged to consult the pre-medical advisor before registration for 
the first semester at College Park. 

Students accepted in the combined arts-medicine program receive the B.S. 
degree (Arts-Medicine) after satisfactory completion of the first year at the 
University of Maryland School of Medicine upon the recommendation of the 
Dean of the School of Medicine and approval of the University of Maryland 
at College Park. The Bachelor of Arts degree is awarded by the University of

for admission. It is therefore desirable to ensure that the work of the first 
three years be selected in such a way that the requirements of one of the 
normal College Park majors can be completed during a fourth year at 
College Park. 

Pre-Nursing 

College Park students may prepare themselves not only for entrance into 
the University of Maryland nursing program, but also for entrance into 
nursing programs at other colleges and universities. To do this efficiently, 
students should obtain program information when first entering college so 
that requirements can be taken in normal sequence. Information for the 
University of Maryland School of Nursing is available at the advising office, 
room 1117 Hornbake Library. 

The School of Nursing, located in Baltimore (UMAB), offers a four-year 
program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in nursing. Completion of 
a two-year pre-professional curriculum is required before admission to UMAB 
for the two professional years. A second-degree option is also offered. 

Application and Admission 

High school students who wish to enroll in the pre-nursing curriculum at 
College Park must meet admission requirements of that institution. While 
in high school, students should enroll in a college preparatory curriculum 
including biology, chemistry, and at least three units of college preparatory 
mathematics. 

Pre-nursing students should begin the application process for professional 
school in fall of the sophomore year. UMAB applications and instructions

Pre-Optometry 

Advisor: Bradley 

Requirements for admission to schools and colleges of optometry vary 
somewhat, and the pre-optometry student should consult the catalogs of 
the optometry schools and colleges for specific admission requirements. A 
minimum of two years of pre-optometry studies is required for admission to 
all accredited schools, and about half of the schools require a minimum of 
three years. At present, more than two-thirds of successful applicants hold 
a bachelor's or higher degree. Students who contemplate admission to 
optometry schools may major in any program that the University offers, but 
would be well-advised to write to the optometry schools of their choice for 
specific course requirements for admission. In general, pre-optometry 
students should follow a four-year baccalaureate program which includes 
the following:
