L Requirements and Application Procedires 

FRESHMAN ADMISSION 



The University of Maryland is a publicly funded land grant institution and the flagship of the University 
System of M aryland. The University's M ission Statement expresses a commitment to achievi ng excel lence 
as the state's pri mary center for research and graduate educati on and the i nsti tuti on of choi ce f or 
undergraduate students of exceptional ability and promise. Consistent with this nission, the University 
counts the diversity of its students among its greatest strengths and as an i ntegral component of the 
educati onal process and academi c excel I ence. 

The undergraduate admissions process, which reflects the University's educational mission, seeks to identify 
those applicants, who as individuals and as a group, will enrich and benefit from the campus learning 
envi ronment, and thus benefit the enti re student body. The process is structured to bui Id enteri ng classes of 
students whose vari ed backgrounds and experi ences provi de substanti al evi dence of thei r potenti al to: 

1. M eet the university's requi rements for academic success. 

2. Enrich the university as a heterogeneous community. 

3. Add new perspectives to the university's curricul um and scholarly pursuits. 

4. Devd op personal skills, including I eadershi p, self-corf i dence, and i ntd I ectual engagement. 

5. Contribute to the intellectual, cultural, social and political life of the university, state, and nation. 

As the university must make fine distinctions among large numbersof highly qualified applicants, the ability 
to assess consi stenrJy al I i nformati on presented i n the appl i cati on becomes i ncreasi ngly i mportart 
Therefore, the university employs a rigorous review process that engages the expertise of professional 
educators i n performi ng i individual ized and holistic eval uations of each application. Each appl icant is 
assessed on the basis of achievements and potential i n a broad range of academic categories, viewed i n the 
context of the opportuni ti es and chal I enges the appl i cant faced. 

These categori es i ncl ude: 

1. Strength of educational performance, as measured by the nature and rigor of high school curricul um and 
academi c achi evements. 

2. Potential for col lege success, as evidenced by performance on national ly normed standardized tests. 

3. Potential to promote beneficial educational outcomes and to make a positive contri bution to campus and 
community life. 

4. Persistence, and commitment to educational excel lence, as evidenced by demonstrated success i n faci ng 
adversity and overcoming obstacles.

ADMISSION TO LIMITED ENROLLMENT PROGRAMS (LEP) 



Certain colleges, schools, and departments within the university have taken steps to I i mi t enrollment in order 
to maintain quality programs. These include the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Robert 
H. Smith School of Business, Col lege of Chemical and Life Sciences, A. James Clark School of 
Engineering, Philip Merrill Col lege of Journal ism Department of Communication, Department of 
Cri mi nology, Department of Government and Pol i tics, Department of Natural Resource Sciences and 
Landscape Architecture and Department of Psychology. LEP programs are continually reviewed. Students 
should check the LEP website at www.lep.umd.edu or contact the Coordinator of Limited Enrollment 
Programs at 301-314-8385 for updated i information. 

Freshmen: A dmissi on for new freshmen to Limited Enrollment Programs is competitive. Because space 
may be limited for a particular major, early application is encouraged. Freshmen who are di rectiy admitted to 
an LEP will be subject to a performance review when they complete45 col lege credits. The review varies 
from program to program but always i ncl udes satisfactory performance i n a set of appropriate courses. 
Students not passi ng the revi ew wi 1 1 be requi red to choose another maj or. See the academi c program 
descri ption for specific details. 

Freshmen not di rectiy admitted to an LEP may be assigned to 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 45 or 60 credits at Maryland. 
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 wishirgtochangetharrrejortoanLEPmustmeeta

of the Limited Enrollment Programs may be found in the descriptions of academic majors in chapter 7. 

Transfer students who are not di rectiy admissible to an LEP upon application to the university will be 
assi gned to an al ternate program. Those wi th fewer than 60 credi ts wi 1 1 be assi gned to L etters and Sci ences,

credits. Students with more than 60 credits will be admitted to an interim advising program in Letters and 
Sciences where they will be advised regarding their qualifications for the LEP and, in some cases, the need to 
choose another maj or. 

Second Major: Enrolled students interested in adding an LEP as a second major should see "Degree 
Requi rements" i n chapter 4. 

Pre-Profesaonal Programs 

While professional schools do not require, favor, or prefer specific majors, pre- professional advisors can 
provide guidance concerning the choice of major. Undecided students may enter Letters and Sciences, but 
must adhere to the University of Maryland policy, that students declare a degree-granting major by the time 
they reach 60 credits. See www.ltsc.umd.edu/ 

For further information on pre- professional programs, see "Other for Credit Programs" in Chapter 7, 
www.prdaw.umd.edu or www.prehealth.urnd.edu . 



SPECIAL APPLICANTS 

Golden Identification Card Program 

The University of Maryland participates in theGol den I dentificati on Card Program. The institution will 
make avai I abl e courses and vari ous servi ces to persons who are 60 years of age or ol der, who are I egal 
resi dents of the State of M aryl and and who are red red ( not engaged i n gai nf ul empl oyment for more than 20

space-avai lable basis for credit courses as regular or special students i n any session and receive a Golden 
I dentificati on card. Golden I D students must meet al I course prerequisite and co- requi site requi rements. 
Tuition is waived for these courses; however, a Golden I D admi nistrativefee is assessed every semester. 
Golden I D students may register for a maxi mum of three courses per term Golden I D students are not 
eligible for Consortium courses. The Golden Identification Card will enti tie eligible persons to certain 
academic services, including the use of the libraries and the shuttle bus service. Such services will be 
avai I abl e duri ng any sessi on only to persons who have regi stered for one or more courses for that semester. 
Gol den I D students al so have the opportuni ty to become i nvol ved wi th the Gol den I D Student A ssoci ati on,

Non-Degree Seeking Students 

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

Non-degree- seeki ng students who have received a baccalaureate degree are advised that no credit earned 
while enrolled may be applied at a later date to a graduate program These post- baccalaureate students may 
enrol I i n undergraduate courses for whi ch they possess the necessary prerequi si tes, but may not enrol I i n 
courses restricted to graduate students only. Students who wish to take courses at the graduate level (600 and 
above) must contact the G raduate School for i nf ormati on concerni ng admi ssi on requi rements for A dvanced 
Special Student status. 

Non-degree- seeki ng students who do not have a baccalaureate degree must submit transcri pts and meet

Non-degree-seeking students who are taking classes to transfer immediately back to another institution may

admi ssi ble as high school seniors must complete at least 30 semester hours with the grade poi nt average as 
stated above. I n accordance with M aryland Higher Education Commission and Board of Regents transfer 
policies, applicants from Maryland public institutions are, in some instances, given special consideration,

instructor by the normal procedure for letter grades. The instructor will submit the normal grade. ThegradesA+, A, A-, B-H B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D or D- will 
automati cal I y be converted by the Off i ce of the Regi strar to the grade P on the students permanent record. The grade F wi 1 1 remai n as given. The choi ce of gradi ng

Incompletes 

The mark of 'I ' is an exceptional mark that is an instructor opti on. It is given only to a student whose work in a course has been qualitatively satisfactory, when, 
because of i 1 1 ness or other ci rcumstances beyond the students control , he or she has been unad e to corrpl ete some smal I porti on of the work of the course. I n no 
casewill themarkl be recorded for a student wlio has not completed the major porti on of the work of the course 

1. Thi s I ncorrpl ete Contract form must be subrri tted to the dean of the col I ege offeri ng the course within six weeks after the grade submission deadline (if a grade 
hasn't al ready been subrri tted) . I f any I ncorrpl ete C ontract i sn't corrpl eted wi thi n the si x week peri od, the i nstructor will convert the I to the appropri ate grade. 

2. The student wi 1 1 remove the 'I ' by corrpl eti ng work assi gned by the i nstructor; i t i s the students responsi bi I i ty to request arrangements for the corrpl eti on of the 
work. The work must be corrpl eted by the time stipulated in the contract, usually by the end of the next semester, but in any event, no later than one year. If the 
remai ni ng work for the course as def i ned by the contract i s not corrpl eted on schedul e, the i nstructor will convert the I to the grade i ndi cated by the contract. 

3. Excepti ons to the stated deadl i ne may be granted by the student's dean ( i n negoti ati on wi th the f acul ty member or the f acul ty members dean) upon the wri tten 
request of the student i f ci rcumstances warrant further del ay . 

4. 1 f the i nstructor i s unavai I abl e, the department chai r, upon request of the student will make appropri ate arrangements for the student to corrpl ete the course 
requi rements. 

5. 1 1 is the responsi bi I ity of the instructor or department chair concerned to submit the grade pronptiy upon completion of theconditions of the I nconpleteContract. 

6. The 'I ' cannot be removed through re-registration for the course or through credit by examination. An 'I ' mark is not used in the computation of quality points or 
cumul ati ve grade poi nt averages. 

Grade Point Average Computation of 

GPA is computed by dividing the total number of quality points accumulated in courses for which a gradeof A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, orF has 
been assi gned by the total number of credits attempted in those courses. Courses for which a mark of P, S, I, NGRorW has been assi gned are not included in 
computing theGPA. Each letter grade hasa numerical value A+, A, A- =4; B+, B, B- =3; C+, C, C- =2; D+, D, D- =1; F =0. Multi plying this value by the 
number of credi ts f or a parti cul ar course gi ves the number of qual i ty poi nts earned for that course. 

See Repeat Pd i cy to deterrri ne the effect of repeated courses i n the cal cul ati on of G PA . 
Repeat Policy 

Thefollowing Campus Repeat Policy applies to ALL courses that may not be repeated for additional credit. 

1. Thefd lowi ng students are requi red to fd low the new repeatpolicy: 

a. All new freshmen who began at University of Maryland , College Park Fall 1990 and after. 

b. Transfer students from schools other than Maryland community colleges who began at University of Maryland, Cd lege Park, Fall 1990 and after. 
T hi s i ncl udes transfer students from another U ni versi ty of M aryl and i nsti tuti on . 

2. There is a lirrit to the number of times a student may repeat a course. Students may haveone repeat of any course in which they earned an A+, A, A-, B+, B, 
B-, C+, C, C-, D-H D, D-, F, P, S, W, NGR or Audit; they cannot be regi stered (after the schedule adj ustment period) for any given course more than twice. A 
students cleans off i ce may grant an excepti on al I owi ng an addi ti onal course repeat. I n thi s case, students must present a pi an for successful I y corrpl eti ng the course. 
All attempts'// be counted toward the total lirrit for repeatable credits. 

Nate Students may rot choose the Pass-Fail option when re- regi steri ng for a course or re-register for a course in which a grade of I has been noted. 

3. Students may repeat no more than 18 credi ts. A ddi ti onal I y, i f a student wi thdraws from all courses duri ng a semester, those courses are not i ncl uded i n thi s 
lirrit. 



i, Academe RecfJremErts, andRegJarjcns 



4. The grade point average will includeall attempts at a given coursethat result in a gradeof A+, A, A-, B-H B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, orF. However, to help 
freshrren and transfer students adjust to the University of Maryland, College Park, the fd I owi ng two exceptions allow for the currulativeG PA to be calculated so 
that only the hi gher grade i s i ncl uded: 

a. W hen the repeated course was taken within the students first semester at University of Maryland, College Park, or 

b. W hen the repeated course was taken wi thi n the students f i rst 24 credi t hours attempted ( i ncl udi ng transfer credi ts) or wi thi n the semester duri ng 
whi ch the student reached the 24th credit hour attempted. Advanced Placement Exam credi ts do not count toward the 24 credit count. 

5. A ny grade earned i n pri or attempts of a repeated course will appear on the student's transcri pt, regard ess of whether the grade i s dropped from or i ncl uded i n, the 
cumul ati ve grade poi nt average. 

6. Repeat by transfer: I f a student repeats by transfer a course that was taken before or duri ng the semester i n whi ch the student reached 24 credi ts attempted 
(including transfer credits) and the transfer grade is hi gher, then the original grade in the course will be excluded from the G PA calculation. 

a. If the course was taken after the semester in which thestudent reached 24 credits attempted, the original grade remains in the G PA calculation. 

Repeat Policy Prior to Fall 1990c 

T he fol I owi ng students fd I ow the previous repeat pd i cy: 

• Students who began at University of Maryland, College Park, beforetheFall 1990 semester (including students who enter University of Maryland, Cdlege 
Park for summer 1990) . 

• Transfer students who began at a M aryl and community col I ege before Fal 1 1990. 

• UMBC College of Engineering students who began before 1990. 

T he hi ghest grade recei ved i n the repeated course i s used to cal cul ate the G PA . A student may repeat any course; however no student may be regi stered for a course 
more than three ti mas. 

If a student repeats a course in which heor she has already earned a mark of A, B, C, D, P, orS, the subsequent attempt shall not increase the total hours earned 
toward thedegree. Onlythe highest mark will be used in computation of the students cumulative average Under unusual circumstances, the students dean may 
grant an exception to thi spd icy. 

Academic Clemency Policy 

Undergraduate students returning to the University of Maryland, College Park in pursuit of their initial baccalaureate degree, after a separation of five calendar years 
may peti ti on the appropri ate dean to have a number of previ ousl y earned grades and credi ts removed from the cal cul ati on of thei r cumul ati ve grade poi nt average. 
U p to 16 credits and corresponding grades from courses previously completed at theUniversity of Maryland, Cdlege Park, will be removed from cal cul ati on of the 
grade point average and will not be counted toward graduation requirements. The petition for clemency must be fi led in thefirst semester of return to the institution. 
A pproval i s nei ther automati c or guaranteed. 

Honors (Dean's L ist) 

Semester Academic Honors (Dean's List) will be awarded to those students who complete, within any given semester (excluding winter and summer terms), 12 or 
more credits (excluding courses with grades of P and S) with a semester GPA of 3.5 or higher. This recognition will be noted on the students academic record.

the nature of i n-cl ass parti ci pati on expected and the effect of absences on the eval uati on of the students work i n 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 pol i cy of hi s or her acaderri c uni t. 

5. Permanent changes i n the schedul i ng or I ocati on of cl asses must be approved by the chai r, the di rector or the dean of the department, non-departmental i zed

school or col lege, as appropriate. 
Assessment 

1. The university provides students with excused absences the opportunity to reschedule si gnifi cant assessments, except in cases where the nature of the 
assessment precluded the possibility of rescheduling, OR to perform a substitute assignment without penalty. An instructor is not under obligation to offer a 
substitute assignment or to givea student a make-up assessment unless the failure to perform was due to an excused absence, that is, due to illness (of the student or 
a dependent) , rel i gi ous observance (where the nature of the observance prevents the student from bei ng present duri ng the cl ass peri od) , parti ci pati on i n uni versi ty 
acti vi ti es at the request of uni versi ty authori ti es, or compel I i ng ci rcumstances beyond the students control . Students cl ai rri ng excused absence rrust appl y i n wri ti ng 
and f umi sh documentary support for thei r asserti on that absence resul ted from one of these causes. 

The makeup assessment or substitute assignment 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, and be at a comparable level of difficulty with the original assessment. In the event that a group of students requires the same 
makeup assessment or substitute assignment, onetimeand place may be scheduled. The makeup assessment or substitute assignment rrust not interfere with the 
students regularly scheduled classes or in-class final examination. 

Students who have a concern regardi ng rel i gi ous observances shod d see thei r i nstructors at the start of the semester. A I though the uni versi ty attempts to 
accommodate the religious beliefs of all of its merrbers, it functions within a secular environment and is I i rri ted in the extent to which it can interrupt its normal 
operations. The president shall determine when it is appropriate for the campus community to resbictreschedulirg examinations or other si gnifi cant assessrrents on 
the dates of rel i gi ous observance. 

Atthistime, exam nations or other si gnifi cant assessments may not be scheduled on RoshHoshanah, YomKippur, Good Friday, or the first two days of Passover. 

I n cases of di spute, the student may appeal to the chai r, the di rector or the dean of the department, non-departmental i zed school or col I ege of f eri ng the course wi thi n 
one week from the date of the refusal to schedul e a makeup assessment. I n those i nstances where the i nstructor i s the chai r, di rector or dean, the appeal shal I be 
made to the next hi gher adrri ni strati ve off i cer, whose deci si on shal I be f i nal . 

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 religi ous observance or parti ci pati on in uni versi ty acti vi ties at the request of uni versi ty authori ties), the student must inform 
the instructor by the end of the schedul eadjustment period. Prior notification is especially important in connection with final examinations, si nee failure to 
reschedule a final exam nation 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 compel ling circumstances beyond thestudents control), the student must inform the instructor as soon as the 
reason develops, or as soon as possible after its development. 

3. Ordinarily, assessments are given during class hours in accordance with the regularly scheduled (or officially arranged) time and pi ace of each course. No less 
than seven cal endar days noti ce shal I be gi ven for assessments schedul ed at other ti mes and pi aces. 1 1 shal I be the i nstructors responsi bi I i ty to ensure that the change 
in schedule does riot interfere with any students regularly scheduled classes or in-class final exarri nations. It is the responsibility of the student to be informed 
concemi ng the dates of announced qui zzes, tests, and exarri nati ons. Performance assessments may take a vari ety of forms and need not be cl assroom- based wri tten

shall be due on the date and at a time listed in the official final examination schedule. 

5. Thechair, the director or the dean of the department, non-departrrental i zed school or college, as appropri ate, is responsible for the adequate administration of

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 themsel ves 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

Proficiency Examination Programs (Crecf t-by-Exam, CLEP) 

TheUniversity of Maryland, 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-Exarrination), 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 morethan 60 credits. Students are responsible for consul ting with the 
appropri ate dean or advi sor about the appl i cabi I i ty of any credi ts earned by exam nati on to a sped f i c degree program Students shoul d al so seek assi stance i n

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. I nvitation 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 I eadershi prior service to the comrrunity isconsidered. Election is held twice a year, onceinthefall and once i n the spri ng 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 inMarchforthosegraduatinginMay. A number of qualifying juniors are also considered during the same semester. The review is conducted by a 
sel ect comrri ttee of f acul ty members represent] ng the humani ti es, soci al sci ences, and natural sci ences. T he comrri ttee revi ews transcri pts of al I j uni ors and seni ors 
with qual ifyi ng grade poi nt averages. Whether a student qual ifi es for membershi p i n Phi Beta Kappa depends on the quality, depth, and breadth of the students 
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 #1 below for possible exception). 

Requirements for consideration of membership in Phi Beta Kappa at the University of Maryland.CollegePark, campus chapter include 

1. Grade Point Average: For seni ors a grade point average of at I east 3. 5 overall as well asinall liberal arts and sciences courses taken. Forjuniors the minimum 
grade poi nt average i s 3. 75, and possi bl y hi gher dependi ng on the number of candi dates i n a parti cul ar year. 

2. Residence: At least 60 credit hours must betaken at the University of Maryland, College Park. 

3. Liberal Courses: For seniors, at I east 90 credit hours in courses in the liberal arts and sci ences (where liberal courses are to be distinguished from professional 
or technical courses), at least 45 of which must be taken at the University of Maryland, College Park. Forjuniors, at I east 75 total credit hours must be completed, 
at I east 60 of whi chare in courses in the liberal arts and sciences; of these, at I east 45 must be taken at the University of Maryland, College Park. Students would 
ordinarily be maj ors in one of the programs in the liberal arts and sci ences. However, students with the requisite number of liberal credit hours can be admitted if 
they have completed at least 5 courses (15 credit hours or more) for seniors or three courses (9 credit hours or more) forjuniors in a single liberal arts and sciences 
department/program at U M C P. 

4. Required courses: One semester of mathematics, which must befulfi I led by college-level credi t hours ( including A P credit), and two col I ege semesters of a 

f orei gn I anguage at the el ementary I evel , or above. T he I anguage requi rement may al so be sati sf i ed by compl eti on of four years of one I anguage other than E ngl i sh 
at the high school level or above, or the equivalent. Students with suchaforeign language background who wish to beconsidered for admission to Phi BetaKappa 
should notify the Phi BetaKappa office in writing and provide the appropriate documentation (such asahigh school transcript) prior to the month of consideration. 
C redi t i s not al I owed based on SAT scores. 

5. Distribution: The credit hours presented for Phi Beta Kappa must contain at I east three liberal arts and sci ences courses (9 credit hours or more) ineachofthe 
three f ol I owi ng areas: a) arts and humani ti es, b) behavi oral and soci al sci ences, c) natural sci ences and mathemati cs ( i ncl udi ng a I aboratory sci ence course; thi s 
requi rement cannot befulfi I led by A P credit). All the courses i n at I east two of the three requi red areas must be completed at UMCP and in the remaining area no 
more than one AP course can be used to fulfil I the requi rement. In general, Phi Beta Kappa will accept theCORE classification of courses but courses which CORE 
desi gnates as havi ng more than one cl assi f i cati on may not sati sfy any Phi B eta K appa di stri buti on requi rement. Students wi th more chal I engi ng courses and 
moderate! y hi gh grade poi nt averages are preferred by the comrri ttee to those wi th hi gher grade poi nt averages but a narrow range of courses. 

Minimal qualifications in more than one area may preclude election to Phi BetaKappa. Meeting the above requirements does not guarantee election to Phi Beta 
Kappa. Thejudgment of the resident faculty members of Phi Beta Kappa on the quality, depth, and breadth of the students 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 
KappaOffice, Dr. Denis Sullivan, 301-405-8986. 

Academic I ntecfity 

The University of Maryland is an academic community. Its fundamental purpose is the pursuit of knowledge. Likeall other communities, the University can function 



i, Academe RecfJremErts, andRegJaDcns 



properly only if its members adhere to clearly established goal sand values. Essential to the fundamental purposeof the University is the commitment to the 
principles of truth and academic honesty. Accordingly, the CocfeoMcaQerric/ntegrit/ is designed to ensure that the principle of academic honesty is upheld. While 
all members of the University sharethis responsibility, the CccfeoMcaQerric/ntegrity is designed so that special responsibility for upholding the principle of 
acaderri c honesty I i es wi th the students. 

The University's CodeofAcaderric Integrity is a nationally recognized honor code, administered by a Student Honor Council. Any of the foil owing acts, when 
committed by a student, shall constitute academic dishonesty: 

C head ng: / ntentionally using or atterrpting to use unauthorized rraterials, information, or study aids in any academe exercise. 

Fabrication: Intentional and unauthorized falsification or invention of any information or citation in an academe exercise. 

Facilitating academic dishonesty: I ntentionally or knowingly helping or atterrpting to help another to violate any provision of the Code of Academe Integrity. 

Plagiarism I ntentionally or knowingly representing the words or ideas of another as one's own in any academe exerase. 

If it is determined that an act of academic dishonesty has occurred, agradeof XF is considered the normal sancti on for undergraduate students. The grade of XF is 
noted on the acaderri c transcri pt as f ai I ure due to acaderri c di shonesty . L esser or more severe sancti ons may be i mposed when there are ci rcumstances to warrant 
such consideration. Suspension or expulsion from the University may be imposed even for a first offense.

In our world of rapid economic, social, and technological change, students need 
a strong and broadly based education. 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. A 
solid general education provides a strong foundation for the life-long learning 
that makes career-change goals attainable. The breadth, perspective, and rigor 
provided by the CORE curriculum helps Maryland graduates become ' ' educated 
people"

Director: Francis DuVi rage, Ph.D. 

The National Scholarships Office at the University of Maryland, College Park aims to 
provide undergraduates with the best possible information, guidance and support as they 
learn about and apply for national scholarships. 

National scholarships are competitive, prestigious awards that provide opportunities and 
support for a wide range of enriching experiences, including study abroad, graduate study 
(and sometimes undergraduate study also), federal employment teaching, research, and 
public service. National scholarships are looking for students (with or without financial 
need) who are developing strong interests and goals - academic and extracurricular- and 
who want to take advantage of every constructive opportunity that will help them reach 
their objectives. J ust as each national scholarship offers a different kind of opportunity, 
each is also looking for a different range of strengths and interests in its applicants. If you 
develop a strong academic record, are thoughtful about your choices and devote yourself 
to activities you care about you may well find one or more scholarship opportunities of 
interest to you. 

The National Scholarships Office strives to make learning about and applying for national 
scholarships an enlightening experience. In addition to providing information about national 
scholarships through our website, through group presentations and through individual 
advising, we also provide individualized guidance and support at every stage of the 
application process. We invite you to visit our website and to make an appointment with us 
to learn more about national scholarships that may help you attain your goals.

spectrurn to spacecraft traveling at thousands of rri I es per hour during launch, orbit, transpl anetary flight, or re-entry, at the high-speed end. In between there are 
general avi ati on and commerci al transport ai rcraft f I yi ng at speeds wel I bel cw and cl ose to the speed of sound, and supersoni c transports, f i ghters, and rri ssi I es 
whi ch crui se supersoni cal I y. A I though each speed regi me and each vehi cl e poses i ts sped al prod ems, al I aerospace vehi cl es can be addressed by a common set of 
techni cal sped al ti es or di sci pi i nes. 

Thesubdisciplinesof A erospace Engineering are: aerodynamics, flight dynamics, propulsion, structures, and "design". Aerodynamics addresses the flow of air and 
the associ ated forces, moments, pressures, and temperature changes. F I i ght-dynarri cs addresses the moti on of the vehi cl es i ncl udi ng the traj ectori es, the rotati oral 
dynarri cs, the sensors, and the control I aws requi red for successful accompl i shment of the rri ssi ons. Propul si on addresses the engi nes whi ch have been devi sed to 
convert cherri cal (and occasionally other forms) energy into useful work, to produce the thrust needed to propel aerospace vehicles. Structures addresses material 
properti es, stresses, strai ns, def I ecti on, and vi brati on al ong wi th manuf acturi ng processes as requi red to produce the very I i ght wei ght and rugged el errents needed i n 
aerospace vehicles. Aerospace "design" addresses the process of synthesizing vehicles and systems to meet defined rri ssi ons and more general needs. This is a 
process that draws on informati on from the other subdi sci pi i nes while embodying its own uni que el errents. TheAerospace Engineering program is designed to

TheAfri can American Studies Departrrent offers a Bachelor of Arts degree with two highly-regarded options: a Cultural and Social Analysis Concentration with 
emphasison culture and history; or the Public Policy Concentration with an emphasison problem-solving, analytical decision- making, and practical applications 
of policy analysis and management ski I Is. In addition, students who elect majors in other departments can earn aCertificate in African American Studies. In 
September 2004, we i introduced a mi nor i n Black Women' s Studies whi ch i s a col I aborati ve program wi th the U ni vera ty's Department of Women's Studies. 

Courses offered in this department may be found under the acronym AASP. 

Program Obj ecti ves 

Thefield of African American Studies has been an explicitiy interdisci pi i nary one from its eariiestformulationatthetumof the twentieth century by W. E. B. Du 
Bois, Carter G. Woodson, and other scholars. Si nee the 1960s, i t has devel oped as a coherent field of study with well -developed methods, theories, and pedagogy. 
We believethattheAfrican American Studies Departrrent at the University of Maryland, College Park has a distinctive intellectual and programmatic focus that 
continues in this tradition and extends it through situating the study of peoples of African descent at the intersection of cultural and historical studies and the social 
sciences. 

AASD's current program continues the tradition of employing a social scientific approach to thestudy of theAfrican American experience that involves a 
concomitant understanding of African Americans' public policy needs. The program reflects the strengths and disciplinary specialties of our own faculty in history, 
political science, public policy, economics, community development, and research methodology and analysis. 

Prog-am L ear ni ng Outcomes 

A primary goal of the program is to devel op strong critical thinking, research and writing skills, through our curri cul urn suchthatAASD majorsleamthe 
i nterdi sci pi i nary methods used i n exarri ni rig the soci o-econorri c, hi stori cal , and political experi ences and contri buti ons of peopl e of Af ri can descent. Students 
shod d acqui re the f d I owi ng knowl edge and ski 1 1 s: 

1. Content: ability to identify, describe, and relate central themes, methods, and send ariy development of the field of African A rreri can Studies. 

2. Critical Thinking: students devel op a clear understanding of the richness and complexity of the interdisci pi inaryschdarship in African American 
Studies. 

3. Students can desi gn and devel op the f oundati ons of thei r own research/thesi s proj ects, sped f i cal I y, a thesi s statement, abstract, and annotated 
bibliography.

TheMajor 

The faculty and students of the Department of Art History and Archaeology form a dynamic nucleus within a major research university. The prograrn lead ng to the 
B.A. degree in Art History, provides a diverse select] on of courses in the art and archaeology of Africa, Asia, Europe, and theAmericas. The goal of the department 
i s to devel op the students critical understandi ng of vi sual cul ture i n both art hi stori cal and archaeol ogi cal contexts. 

Thedepartrrent has strong coverageinWestemartfromtlieclassical period up to the present. Inaddition, by taking advantage of the unusual diversity of faculty 
interests, students can study in areas not traditionally offered in departments of art history and archaeology, such as the art of Africa, art of the African diaspora, art of 
Latin America, and Chinese and J apaneseart. Studies in archaeology may be pursued in cooperation with other University departments. 

Courses offered by thi s department may be found under the fol I owi ng acronym A RTH . 

Prog-am Obj actives 

The Department of A rt H i story and A rchaeol coy's B. A. program provides majors critical knowledge of visual cul ture in both art hi stori cal and archaeological 
contexts. The program promotes visual literacy in the hi story of art of global cultures from prehistoric times to the present; cultivates strong research, written, and 
critical thinking ski I Is; and devel ops students' ability to synthesize cultural, historical, political, and social information as it bears upon the visual arts. 

Program L ear ni ng Outcomes 

Students are expected to f ul I y engage withthecurriculum and the opportuni ti es presented for I eami ng and research. H avi ng compl eted the B A . i n A rt H i story, 
students shoul d have acqui red the fol I owi ng knowl edge and ski 1 1 s: 

1. An ability to demonstrate knowledge of a large set of artisti c monuments, objects, and performances in the hi story of art and in specific periods and/or cultures 
and pi ace the vi sual arts i n cul tural , hi stori cal , political, and/or sod al contexts. 

2. An ability to communicate effectively about art in writing, applyi ng complex forms of analysis in essay-length papers using clear and concise prose. 

3. A n abi I i ty to empl oy the appropri ate technol ogi es for conducti ng research i n the hi story of art, i ncl udi ng pri nt sources and/or el ectroni c i nformati on. 

4. A n abi I i ty to recogni ze and understand fundamental art hi stori cal methods encompassed by but not I i rri ted to connoi sseurshi p, styl i sti c chrond ogy, vi sual and 
techni cal anal ysi s, i n addi ti on to sped al i zed methods of i nterpretati on and cri ti ci sm and other contextual approaches. 

Academic Programs and Departmental Facilities 

The location of the university between Washington and Baltimore gives students the opportunity to use some of the finest museum and archival cd lections in the 
wori d for thei r course work and i ndependent research. The department encourages students to hd d i ntemshi ps at a number of these i nsti tuti ons C urator/prof essors, 
exhi bitionsinTheArt Gallery at theUniversity of Maryland, interactive technologies, and the extensive use of study cd lections bring regional and distant museums 
into the classroom 

Thedepartment is in the forefront of exploring digital imaging technologies for art hi stori cal andarchaedogical teaching, research, and publication. The Michelle 
Smith Col laboratory for Visual Culture, located in the department on the fourth floor of the A rt/Socid ogy Building, iscentral in creating a nurturing environment for 
academic quality and creative learning. This new space permits ample workspace for meetings, workshops, forums, and the execution of large-scale techni cal 
projects.

Bioengineering is a field rooted in physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology, and life sciences. E ach of these areas is applied in a systematic, quantitative, and 
i ntegrati ve way to approach probl ems i mportant i n bi d ogy, bi osystems, rredi cal research, and cl i ni cal practi ce. B i oengi neeri ng advances fundamental concepts, 
creates knowl edge from the mol ecul ar to organ to system I evel s, and devel ops i nnovati ve processes for the preventi on, di agnosi s, and treatment of di sease. I n short, 
bioengineering seeks to improve the health and life of humankind on many levels. 

Bi oengi neers specialize in those products and processes madefrom, used with, or applied to biological organisms. In addition to engineering science and design, 
bi oengi neers study eel I biology, physiology, bioinformatics, bioimaging, and biomechanics. The synthesis of engineering and biology gives bioengineers unique 
capabilities in our modem world. 

Program Obj ecti ves 

Our curriculum emphasizes the principles of biology, physiology, engineering, and design. In addition to the technical aspects, the curriculum also incorporates 
ethi cs, econorri cs, and patent concepts. A 1 1 of these areas of study create a ri ch educati onal experi ence, one that prepares our graduates for success i n the 
professional world.

Admission to the Major 

Students who wish to study at the A. James CI ark School of Engineering apply for admission to the University of Maryland; there is no separate application for 
engineering. When filling out the university application, you may choose bioengi neeri ng as your intended maj or. You may also apply as an undecided engineering 
major. 

All Bioengineering majors must meet admission, progress, and retention standards of the A. J ames CI ark School of Engineering. 

Please note If you are applying to Bioengineering as a transfer student (whether you are an internal Clark School transfer, external UMD transfer, or transferring 
froman outside institution), then you must completeBlOE 120 with a 3.0 before you will be admitted into the department. If you wish to enroll, pleasesendan 
e-mail withyourUIDtoMichelleFrenchatmfrench@urrd.edu. You will be will be notified by e-mail when permission has been granted. 

Requirements for theMajor 

Fd I owi ng is the I i st of the course requirements for the Bioengi neeri ng Undergraduate Program on semester basis. Each student foil owing the course tempi ate 
should beableto graduate in 4 years. Each student will meet with his/her Faculty Advisor every semester to plan the scheduleof courses for thesubsequent 
semester. Some of the students in thebi oengi neering program may elect to pursue professional degrees such as Medical, Dental, Law, etc., thus they may need 
certain courses that those professional schools require and they should be aware of it and discuss it with their Faculty Advisor. Some of these courses may easily be

Courses offered by this department may be found under the foil owing acronym(s): CLAS, LATN, GREK. 

Classics is the study of ancient Greek and Roman culture in all its aspects. Greek and Roman culture are the foundations of western culture- its literature, ideas, art, 
politics, and conceptions of the individual. Greek myth is still a shared fund of images and narratives that expresses human experience. Latin is the major source of

helps us understand the relationship of western culture to other cultural systems and pi ace ourselves better in the world. 

CI assies is an intellectually rich and versatile liberal arts major which teaches "core ski I Is", including effective communication, critical thinking, and an appreciation 
of diversity. Because it is so interdisciplinary and holistic, a student of classics gets a three-dimensional view of cultural hi story and the literary works that are still

Computer science is the study of computers and computational systems: their application, design, devel opment and theory. Principal areas within computer science 
include artificial intelligence, computer systems, database systems, human factors, numerical analysis, programming languages, software engineering, and theory of 
computing. A computer scientist is concerned with problem solving. Problems range from abstract questions of what problems can be solved with computers to 
practi cal matters such desi gn of computer systems whi ch are easy for peopl e to use. Computer sci enti sts bui I d computati onal model s of systems i ncl udi ng physi cal
