M^^t the University 

The first step in becoming 
acquainted with the University of 
Maryland at College Park family 
is an introduction to its members. 
Read on for background, history 
and trivia about your University, 
as a well as a personal welcome 
from two prominent UMCP 




I am very pleased to welcome you to the University of Maryland at 
College Park. As you know, the primary purpose of a university is to 
help individuals acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to make 
sound judgement and to contribute to the overall advancement of 
society. In order to meet this responsibility, we are committed to 
providing our students with the best educational experience possible. 
We have an excellent faculty and a rich curriculum to prepare you for 
your future endeavors. You will find yourself in the company of an 
extraordinarily talented and diverse student body. Our newly-revised 
undergraduate curriculum will challenge you to excel to your fullest 
potential. We also have opportunities for you to engage in research 
projects with faculty members, to participate in honors programs, to 
study abroad, and to be involved in extracurricular activities that 
enrich your academic program. 

We recognize that what you gain from your education here at College 
Park ultimately will depend on you. But my colleagues and I are 
committed to providing the best possible learning and living 
environment for you, and we hope you will take advantage of all that 
we have to offer. Again, I welcome you to the campus and extend my 
very best wishes for successful and rewarding years as part of this 

William E. Kirwan 


Dear New Student: 

Entering a new college is an experience filled with exciting as well 
as threatening adventures. It is important for you to learn about the 
many services and resources the University of Maryland at College 
Park offers. How do you become a part of the UMCP community? 
Obviously, the first thing is to become interested in and do well in your 
academics. In spite of the many outside activities available here, your 
academics are the primary reason you are here. It is important for you 
to develop good study skills and do well in your classes. 

Not all of your education, however, takes place inside the 
classroom. The learning that takes place outside of the classroom is 
very important to your complete educational development. An integral 
part of your college experience at UMCP will come from involvement 
in your college community. Meeting students from different places, 
understanding and learning about different value systems, and 
becoming involved in developmental services and clubs can help you 
gain many skills that will assist you in becoming a more, well-rounded 
individual. Welcome to the campus community. Fm glad you have 
chosen UMCP! 

Gerry B. Strumpf 

Director of Orientation Programs 


University of Maryland at College Park 


The University of Mjiryland at College Park was chartered in 1856 as the Maryland Agricultural 
College under a provision secured by a group of Maryland planters. After a disastrous fire in 1912, the 
state acquired control of the college and bore the cost of rebuilding. 

In accordance with state legislation, the University of Maryland system was formed, July 1, 1988. At 
that time, the five institutions of the University of Maryland , and the six institutions of the Board of 
Trustees of State Universities and Colleges merged to form the University of Maryland system. 
Currently under the direction of a single Board of Regents, the system includes: Bowie State 
University, Coppin State College, 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 £md 
University of Maryland University College. The system also includes four major research and service 

The University of Maryland at College Park is spread over 1,378 acres which encompass an excess 
of 200 buildings. There are 35,000 students, both undergraduate and graduate, who come from a variety 
of backgrounds ranging from the country or small towns to cities, suburbs, cosmopolitcm areas and 
provinces. Undergraduate majors are available in over 100 are2is of study. Students have the option of 
creating their own program of individual study with the assistance of a faculty advisor. The diverse 
student population allows students to learn a great dejd outside of the classroom through interaction 
with their peers. 

The Mission of UMCP 

As the flagship campus of the University of Maryland System, College Park bears a major 
responsibility for public higher education in Maryland. The mission of UMCP is to provide the 
opportunity for an affordable, high quaUty undergraduate and graduate education to all Maryland

major center for graduate education and research. The campus takes special responsibility for the 
dissemination of knowledge, expertise and culture to the citizens of the state through its extensive 
public service programs. This three-part mission is based on the idea that each of its elements is 
complimented and enhjmced by the other, yielding an institution of significant strength and of great 
importance to the state of Maryland and the nation. To enhance the achievement of this mission, 
UMCP is committed to improving the quality of life for its students, faculty and staff. 

The Composition of UMCP

Year the University of Maryland at College Park was chartered 

Anatomy of the University Seal 

The University Seal is an adaption of the Great Seal of 1648 of the state of Maryland. The seal bears 
a shield of the coats of arms of the Calvert and Crossland families, Maryland's first settlers. Topping 
the shield are an Eairl's coronet and a helmet. The farmer and fisherman on either side of the shield 
symbolize the bomity of Maryland's land and waters. The date 1856 represents the fomiding date of the 
University of Maryland at College Pfirk. 


Maryland we're all behind you. 

Raise High the black and gold. 

For there is nothing half so glorious, 

As to see our team victorious. 

We've got the team boys, 

We've got the steam boys, 

So keep on fighting don't give in. 

M-A-R-Y-L-A-N-D, Maryland will win! 


Fight, fight, fight for Maryland, 

Honor now her name again, 

Push up the score, Keep on fighting for more. 

For Maryland, GO TERPS! 

And we will fight, fight, fight for terrapins. 

Keep on fighting 'till we win. 

So sing out our song as we go marching along, 

To victory!!! 


Hail Alma Mater, 

Hail to thee Mciryland, 

Steadfast in loyalty. 

For thee we stand. 

Love for the black and gold. 

Deep in our hearts we hold. 

Singing thy praise forever. 

Throughout the land. 


School Colors: Black/Gold & RedAVhite 

The University's colors are the same as the state colors . Black and gold are derived from the Calvert 
Family shield while red and white are derived from the Crossland family shield. These two famihes 
were Maryland's first settlers. 

School Mascot: Diamondback Terrapin named Testudo 

The name Testudo is the biological name of a particular species of terrapins. By the way... a terrapin 
is amphibious, while a turtle is not! Legend has it that if you rub the nose on the statue of Testudo, 
found in front of McKeldin Library, you will have good luck. 

Byrd Beach 

A springtime tradition at Maryland... looking for "beachlike conditions"? Students go to Byrd 
Stadium to "catch some rays" during the warm weather to improve their tans. The aluminum bleachers 
make for great tanning conditions as the sun is reflected from aH sides...its an outdoor tanning booth! 


Each fall, students at Maryland gear up for one of the biggest events of the year... Homecoming. 
Many activities are plaimed to welcome alumni back to their alma mater. In addition, these same 
activities are a way for current students to get involved on campus. Activities for students include: the 
Homecoming Piirade, a Talent Show, a Powder Puff football tournament, and a campus-wide Pep 
Rally/Bonfire the night before the gjune... If you're interested in becoming involved in this special event, 
you can contact the OFFICE OF CAMPUS ACTIVITIES (x5605) for more information. 

The New Student Celebration 

Each fall new students are welcomed to the College Park family with a picnic on McKeldin Mall. 
Come out for balloons, a free picnic lunch, the band, and the Terp as faculty, staff, administrators and 
current UMCP students gather to meet you!

University of Maryland at College Park Statement on Classroom Climate 

The University of Maryland at College Park values the diversity of its student body 
and is committed to providing an equitable classroom atmosphere that encourages 
the participation of all students. Patterns of interaction in the classroom between the 
faculty member and students and among the students themselves may inadvertantly 
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. Joking 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 Storting 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.

For a complete outline of academic 
requirements and registration procedures, 
consult the following printed resources: 



Academic advisors are available for all 
students. If you have decided on a major, look in 
the Schedule of Classes to find the name of an 
advisor in your major. If you are undecided 
about your major, you may see an advisor at the 
Undergraduate Advising Center in room 1117 of 
Hornbake Library. At least once a semester it's 
a good idea to get together with your advisor to 
choose courses, check requirements and make 
sure you're on the right track. However, do not 
limit your visits to registration times. Advisors 
will help you find the information you need 
about academic matters and about other issues 
like career choices, the job market, internships 
and special work opportunities. For more 
information, be sure to check the current 
Undergraduate Catalog , the Schedule of Classes, 
or call 454-2733. 

Pre-Major Advising 

Prior to admittance to a Limited Enrollment 
program, your "advising home" will be in one of 
the colleges or in the Undergraduate Advising 
Center. A pre-major advisor will help you 
choose classes each semester and sort out your 
intentions and hopes for comj)eting for a place in 
the Limited Enrollment Program of your choice. 

Pre-Professional Advising 

Although pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, 
pre- veterinary medicine, etc. are not majors, 
there are specific courses students need to take 
in order to qualify for admission to professional 
studies in these areas after graduation. Certain 
faculty members have been designated as 
advisors for students planning to apply for 
admission to schools of law, medicine, dentistry, 
podiatry, osteopathic medicine, optometry and 

veterinary medicine. Students should consult 
these advisors in addition to their major advisors 
early in their college careers. These advisors can 
be particularly helpful in providing accurate 
information about professional school admission 
requirements and can help students develop 
appropriate strategies for gaining admission. 
Names and ofliee locations of pre-professional 
advisors appear in each edition of the Schedule 
of Classes. 

Undergraduate Advising Center 

Many University students have decided to be 
undecided about their majors and want help in 
defining their goals. Other students discover 
they have chosen the wrong majors and need 
help redefining their goals. 

Whatever your reasons might be for being 
undecided, you have a temporary advising home 
in the Undergraduate Advising Center (UAC). 
Through working with the Center's staff of 
trained academic advisors you can explore 
majors, choose and schedule courses, plan your 
general education program, and learn about 
campus-wide resources to assist you in solving 
problems that arise during your academic 
career. The UAC also provides advise for 
Pre-Business students. 

The UAC assists students in: 
Choosing a Major 
Information and Referral 
Pohcy Interpretation 
Credit-by- Examination 
Advanced Placement 
Genertd Assistance 

(For more specific information about available 
services, consult the Undegraduate Catalog ). 


If you feel an instructor has given you an unfair 
grade, discuss the matter with him or her 
informally and try to resolve the problem. If you 
are unsuccessful ask to meet with the 
DepcU"tmental representative who handles 
grading problems. 



Advanced Placement exams are fully 
described in the Undergraduate Catalog. Their 
scores may be interpreted by your college 
advisor. AP credits are posted on your transcript 
as transfer work. 


Have you chosen a major yet? Are you 
thinking about changing your major? 

It is estimated that nearly half of all entering 
freshman haven't chosen a major, even if they say 
they have. On the average, students at College 
Park change majors two or three times while 
they're here. So, there's certainly nothing 
unusual about not having a major right away or 
about changing to a new one. 

Some students take more time than is really 
necesscuy to make their choice, mostly because 
they wait for "inspiration" to strike or for 
something to "interest" them. It just doesn't 
work that way. Choosing a major takes time, 
persistence, a lot of decision-making and 
concern for your own future. It can also be a lot 
of fim. 
Consider the following: 

• See an advisor or career counselor for more 
information and assistsmce. 

• Learn a lot about yourself. Think about your 
interests, skills and abihties.Think about what 
you would like to do with your life after 
getting your degree. Lxx)k to see if you can tie 
all of these together and fit them into a major 
offered here. (Use the UMAPS) 

• Famiharize yourself with the many academic 
opportunities available at College Faik. 
Some students overlook good courses and 
programs simply because they don't know 
they're being offered. 

• Consider your feelings about going on to a 
graduate or professionjil school. For some 
majors this is expected. 

• Find out about the job market cind the kinds 
of opportunities you can expect to find once 
you graduate in a particular major. 

• Finally, be confident about your abihty to 
make good choices. You know more about 
your expectations for yourself than cmyone 

Remember, there won't be just one, perfect 
major for you. There will be several that will 
look good. Pick the one that best expresses what 
you are and what you'd like to become. 


Forms to initiate changes in your major are 
available at all college offices and at the 
Registration Office located on the first floor 
lobby in the Mitchell Building. Refer to the 
organizational chart on the back of the form to 
verify that you have processed all the necessary 
changes and are using the correct codes.

Identification Cards 

The University's identification system is 
comprised of three cards: A paper registration 
card, a plastic photo I.D. card, and, for those on 
a dining services board plan, plastic photo dining 
hall card. These cards are used to gain admission 
to most events on campus, as well as for 
boarding the UM Shuttle. 

Photo Identiflcation Cards 

Students are issued photo ID cards when they 
enroll at the University and continue to use that 
card during their entire enrollment. 
Replacement cost is $7, the first card is free. 

Registration Card 
Also issued at the beginning of each semester is 
a registration card. Students re^stering early 
will receive their card attached to their 
combination class schedule and bill. Students 
registering later will be issued one after 
presenting proof of bill payment. The 
replacement cost is $1. 

Dining Hall ID Card 
Each student contracted with Dining Services 
for meals is issued a plastic photo I.D. card used 
for entrance to the dining hall. These cards are 
not transferable. Do not lend them out; if you 
are caught, your dining hall privileges can be 

NOTE: There will be a $12.00 replacement 
charge if the card is lost. Also, you must go to 
the Dining Services Business Office if you wish 
to cancel your bo£u-d plan for any reason, (i.e., 
withdrawal from school or housing). 
Students attending Summer Orientation will 
receive a University Photo Identification 
Card.This Photo I.D. Card will never need to be 
replaced or retaken unless the current card 
becomes damaged or lost. 


Undergraduate Student Classifications 

Transfer Credit Evaluation 

Freshman 1-27 credit hours 
Sophomore 28-55 credit hours 
Junior 56-85 credit hours 
Senior 86 to at least 120 credit hoiu-s 

Full- Time Status 
An undergraduate student is considered full-time 
when he/she is registered for 9 or more credit hours at 
the end of the Schedule Adjustment Period (first ten 
(10) days of classes). Note, however, students with 
scholarships Jind grants are expected to maintain a 
semester credit load of 12 credit hours. If the 
registration of a student with a scholarship or grant 
falls below the required credit hours, the scholarship 
or grant may be cancelled. Cancellation of a 
scholarship or grant without subsequent payment of 
amounts due will lead to an indebtedness to the 

Not all students will be admitted into certain majors. 
Rather, they will complete a "pre-major" program and 
compete for limited enrollment on the basis of specific 
criteria, usujilly overall grade point average, 
standardized test scores, and/or your performance in 
specific classes. Some programs also ask for examples 
of creative work. In a few cases, letters of 
recommendation are needed. If you have been 
admitted as a "pre-major" student (i.e. pre-business, 
pre-design, pre-architectiu-e, etc.), you have indicated 
an aspiration to enter that major. A pre-major 
program, however, is not a major. Thus, it is important 
to decide upon an alternative major. Alternatives may 
be discussed with your pre-major advisor. 


Office of Records and Registrations 
Main Desk First Floor Mitchell Building 

OfTicial Transcripts 
Official Transcripts can be requested at the 
InformationDesk of the Office of Records and 
Registrations for a $2 fee. Any outstanding bills, such 
as parking tickets or libraray fines, must be paid to 
receive a transcript. Allow three to five days to receive 
a transcript. For mail in requests. Students who have 
enrolled since 1985 will receive their transcript upon 
presentation of identification.. 

Unoflicial Transcripts 

Unofficizd transcripts can be obtained for advisement 
purposes from your college office. 

Your college advising office will review the transcripts 
of any previous college-level work, provided it was 
done at a school with a regional accreditation. Two 
types of judgement ju-e made about transfer work: 

1) Can a course transfer? 

If so, you will earn credit toward the minimum of 120 
semester hours needed to graduate. 

2) Is a course applicable? 

It can be used toward a specific university, college or 
major requirement. 

For many transfer students, the transcript is not 
up-to-date on the day of orientation. It is useful to 
make certain that your previous school has sent your 
latest academic records. It might be wise to schedule 
an appointment with your academic advisor just after 
the beginning of your first semester in order to do 
another review of your transfer work. 

Waitlist Information 

A waitlist is a sequential file of students, in "first 
come-first served" order of their requests who are 
waiting to get into a closed course should a seat open 
at some future time. (For more information see page 7 



General Education requirements ensure that a wide range of abilities and knowledge is developed, 
and that students have the intellectual integration and awareness which will prepare them for the 
developments and changes they will experience in their personal, social, poUtical and professioncil

Credit Requirements for Satisfactory Undergraduate Progress and Graduation 

See the Undergraduate Catalog for specific outline and explanation of requirements 

1. A minimum of 120 credits of successfully completed (not I, F, or W) course credits is required for 

graduation in any degree curriculum. Credits transferred or earned during prior admissions 
terminating in academic dismissal or withdrawal and followed by re-admission, will be applicable 
toward meeting credit requirements for a degree. 

2. Academic retention is based solely upon cumulative grade point average (cumulative G.PA.). The 

significance of the G.P A. varies according to the number of credits attempted. 

3. Students with a cumulative G.P A. of less than 2.0 fall into one of three categories: Unsatisfactory 

Performemce, Academic Warning, or Academic Dismissal. The cumulative G.P.A. that defmes 
each of the categories varies according to the retention credit level as noted below: 

Retention Credit Level = All courses (including zero level) with grades of A,B,C,D,F,P,S 

and all transfer credit. 

Credit Unsatisfactory Academic Academic 

Level Performance Warning Dismissal 




















4. Credits completed with grades A, B, C, D and F, but not P and S, will be used in computation of 
the semester and cumulative G.P A. Marks of I, W £ind NGR will not be used in the computation 
of semester and cumulative G.P.A. 

5. Students with an unsatisfactory performance for any semester will be urged in writing to consult 
their advisors. 

a. Students on academic wzirning will have this fact noted on their transcripts aad 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 £my semester will not be allowed to register for 
the following semester or to modify their registration for the following semester prior to 
receiving mandatory advising from an approved academic advisor in their college. 

b. Any student with 60 or more credits attempted who subsequently receives academic 
warning for two consecutive semesters will be academically dismissed. Students who are 
academically dismissed will have this action entered on their transcript. 

6. No student transferring to the University of Maryland at College Park will be subject to academic 
dismissal at the end of the first semester as long as the student obtains a cumulative G.P.A. of 0.23 
or more. (A student who would otherwise be subject to academic dismissal will receive an 
academic warning.) Thereeifter, such a student will be subject to the published standards of 
academic progress. This provision does NOT apply to students readmitted or reinstated to the 
College Park campus. 

7. Reinstatement zifter academic dismissal. 

a. 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 of 
reinstatement. Courses taken at emother campus of the old University of Maryland system prior to 
Fall 1989 will be included in the cumulative G.PA. for all students who attended the College Park 
campus prior to Fall 1989. For students who began their attendance at College Park Fall 1989 or 
later prior coursework taken at another campus will not be included in cumulative G.P.A. but will 
be posted as transfer credit. 

8. Any appeal regjirding the regulations governing academic warning and academic dismissal shall be 

directed to the Faculty Petition Board.

The OfRce of Campus Activities 

1191 Stamp Student Union 

Campus activities smd student organizations 
can be a very important part of your experience 
here at the University. Students who get 
involved in the life of the campus are more 
satisfied with their college experience and more 
likely to stay in school jmd graduate. The Office 
of Campus Activities will assist you in fmding 
information about student clubs and 
organizations including: how to join a club, how 
to form an organization, or how to improve a 
currently existing organization. Acting as a 
service center for the more than 350 student 
groups, the Office of Csmipus Activities 
coordinates space reservations, SGA funded 
accounts, leadership programs, as well as the 
First Look Fair held in September. Be sure to 
attend this fair; it's a great opportunity to meet 
representatives from many student groups and 
get yourself involved.

Dealing with Stress 

As a college student, there will be many 
demands placed upon you by professors and 
coursework, by friends and family and by you. 
STRESS is your body's physical and emotional 
reaction to these demands or pressures. You 
can't expect to eliminate stress from your college 
life nor would you want to. Optimal levels of 
stress keep you alert and help you perform well. 
Stress is a sign that you are alive and well and 
meeting the challenges of campus life. It is only 
when stress becomes extreme, is never-ending or 
when you don't have the necessary coping skills 
that it becomes a problem by turning into 
DISTRESS. There are many ways to cope with 
the pressures of being a student and to prevent 
yourself from becoming distressed. Some of 
these include: 

1. Be prepared for activities or events in your 
life, both academic and social. Letting things go 
until the last minute is a sure way to increase 
pressure beyond your tolerance point. 

2. Take care of yourself physically. Get 
enough sleep, try to eat well and regularly, and 
get regular exercise. Your general physical 
condition is an important factor in determining 
how well you tolerate stress. 

3. Take care of yourself mentally. 
Compliment yourself on your efforts and 
accompUshments. Avoid being overly critical of 
yourself. Much pressure is internally imposed by 
being too hard on yourself. 

4. Schedule some type of relaxation into your 
daily routine. Relaxing, enjoyable activities help 
you unwind from the day's pressure and regroup 
for tomorrow's. 

5. Don't be afraid to £isk for help or seek 
support from friends. One of the best ways to 
alleviate stress is to spend time with people you 
like talking over problems or just having a good 

6. Finally, if you find yourself overwhelmed 
and distressed, seek help from one of the many 
campus resources aveiilable to you. The 
Counseling Center offers stress management 
workshops as well as counseling to help you 
better cope with pressure. The Learning 
Assistance Center, the Mental Health Service at 

the University Health Center, your Residence 
Hall staff, and the faculty are cill there to help 

Dr. Kathy Zamostny, Counseling Center 


The next four years of college will be some of 
the most stimulating and challenging of your life. 
You will be exposed to new ideas, different 
p)eople, alternative lifestyles and opposing belief 
systems cill of which can be very exciting; it can 
also be somewhat scary. Along with these new 
experiences comes a questioning of yourself, and 
your values and beliefs about the world. There 
will be times when you feel confused and anxious 
about this new information. Times when you 
question who you are and what you beUeve. In 
the face of this confusion, keep in mind that you 
do have choices. Sometimes, your confusion and 
questioning will lead you to modify your existing 
beUefs and values while other times you will 
become more committed to them. Remember 
that being in a state of confusion and questioning 
yourself and your values is okay. After all, 
questioning is the first stage of learning; it is the 
first step to becoming a better person. If you 
find it difficult to sort through this new 
information and where you stzmd, don't be cifraid 
to ask for help. Many of the people around you

It's Not Only What You Know It's What 

You Do 

Go to cx)llege, study a little or a lot, have fun, 
get a job--this is the typical way to view a college 
education. If only it were that simple. Some of 
the best and brightest college students can 
merrily waltz through their college years and 
wind up with a great job sifter graduation. Most 
of us, however, do well to give some thought and 
planning to our college years. Often there is a 
tendency to make college and major decisions 
based on "where the jobs appear to be." Nothing 
could be farther from the truth. Answering hard 
questions such as "What to major in" and "What 
careers are best for me" requires serious thinking 
and work. Identifying, examining, exploring 
what your interests and skills are, and what you 
care about is the first step to making good career 
decisions. Here are a few other tips. 

Talk with counselors in the Career 
Development Center (3rd floor Hornbake 
Library), Counseling Center (Shoemaker Hall), 
or Undergraduate Advising Center (1117 
Hornbake Library) to start. 

L&ain more about specific careers by getting 
acquainted with the Resource Center in the 
Career Development Center (books, 
audio-visual tapes, files, computerized 
information), tzilking to faculty, attending career 
fairs, and interviewing UMCP alumni mentors. 

Experience your career choice before 
graduation. Jobs and internships can be 
arranged through the Job Referral Service (3rd 
floor Hornbake Library), or Experiential 
Learning Office, (0119 Hornbake Library). 

Contact these offices early in your college 
years-don't wait until it's too late or you get so 
involved in other aspects of college that you aic 
one of those graduates who say, "I never knew 
there was some one to help." Faculty and 
services are here to help you make your college 
career the beginning of an exciting career 
future. It's not only what you know, it's what 
you do. Dr. Linda Gast, Director

UMAPS Show Y ou The Way Hij 

UMaps £ire not a typical kind of map. There 
are no highways or buildings on UMaps. Instead 
UMaps highlight campus opportunities, helping 
you to identify courses, clubs, activities. 

internships and employment related to your 
particular interests. 


-fmd the right major 

-meet other students who share your 

-explore some potential careers 

-get involved in some activities that really 
interest you 

-get some career-related work experience 

-take some interesting courses 

UMaps are easy to use. A brightly colored 
description sheet provides 6 categories of 
student interests: 

REALISTIC: Practical and straightforward, 
these students enjoy outdoor work, physical 
activity, and working with tools, machines and 

INVESTIGATIVE: These students are 
analytical and inquisitive, prefer solving abstract 
problems, and like theoretical scientific work. 

ARTISTIC: Independent and creative, these 
students are attracted to the visual and 
performing arts and communications. 

SOCIAL: These students are helpful and 
friendly, cind they enjoy working with and for 
others through teaching, athletics, and health. 

ENTERPRISING: Enthusiastic and 
j)ersuasive, these students enjoy positions of 
leadership, pubUc affairs, and business. 

CONVENTIONAL: These students are 
systematic and organized; they like to work with 
data and numbers. 

After you decide which 2 or 3 descriptions 
best fit you, look over the corresponding UMaps 
brochures. Each of the 6 brochures contain Usts 
of the academic programs, Ccu^eer possibilities, 
internships, volunteer, and job opportunities as 
well as organizations and involvements at UMCP 
that would be of particular interest to someone 
with that set of interests. 

Look for UMaps posted around campus, or 
pick up your personal copies at the Office of 
Commuter Affairs, 1195 Stamp Student Union; 
the Career Development Center, 3121 Hornbake 
Building; or at the Orientation Office, 1195 
Stamp Student Union. 



Monday through Friday 9 to 5, is the standard 
40 hour work week. For most students the 
standard 40 hour work week could be enough 
time to go to all of their classes and complete all 
of their study for those classes. By using the 
guidelines listed below you could be on your way 
to an efficient time-management schedule. 

Time manjigement begins with the assumption 
that we can control time if we use a few fairly 
simple techniques. In the ABC Time 
Management System the first step is to find five 
or ten minutes each day to plan. 

The next step in managing time is to make a 
list of all of the things we want to accompUsh in a 
given amount of time (a semester, a week or, 
perhaps best, a given day). After you Ust all of 
the things you W£mt, need or should do that day, 
prioritize the items on the Ust using "A" to 
designate the most important items, "B" to 
indicate the next most importcmt, and "C" to 
indicate things that need to be done, but really 
aren't that importcmt to you. When you finish 
prioritizing you should have identified the two or 
three most important things you want to do that 

The next step is probably the hardest part of 
time management. Completing the items you 
marked "A". When you have available time start 
working on those items you have marked "B". 
Suppose you only have fifteen minutes. It is 
better for you to complete a httle bit of one of 
the top priorities than it is to complete two or 
three unimportant tasks. Some people call this 
technique "Work smarter, not harder". It is not 
the quantity of work you do, it is whether you 
completed the most important things you have to 

A second time memagement technique is to 
schedule your time, allotting time for class, 
study, work, recreation, etc. Using this technique 
you first write in committed time such as classes. 
Then carefully decide on when the best time is 
for you to schedule other activities. You may 
decide that you can study two hours each 
weekday from 3-5, and on Sunday through 
Wednesday evenings from 7-10. At any given 
time all you need to do is check your schedule to 
see if you have committed that time or if it is free 
time. If you would like assistcmce in designing a 
time-management system for yourself, you can 
go to the Learning Assistance Service in the 

Shoemaker building. Call 454-2935, and the staff 
will schedule an appointment for you to meet 
with a counselor. 

Dr. John Van Brunt, Director 

Learning Assistance Service 

NOTE: To assist you in the time management 
process, pick up a scheduling grid from the 
LA.S. office in 1103 Shoemaker Building.

Experiential Learning Programs 

0119 Hombake Library 

Deciding on a major, choosing a career,

experience in your major field while serving the 
community. You can choose your co-op, 
internship or volunteer position from over 1,300

confidence and the contacts you gain will be 
invaluable after graduation, as you show your

Department of Campus Parking 

Parking Garage 2-BuiIding #202 

All students who plan to park a motor vehicle 
on the College Park C<mipus must register for a 
parking permit with the Department of Campus 
Parking or park at a paid meter. Exception: 
Freshman and Sophomore students who have 55 
credits or less and who reside on campus are 
prohibited from registering for a parking permit. 

Students can obtain a permit by going directly 
to the Campus Parking Office or by registering 
through the mail. The majority of UMCP 
students receive permit registration information 
by mail beginning in July. Try to take advantage 
of this opportunity, as it will save you time and 
frustration from waiting in long lines. If you do 
not receive a packet, you must go directly to the 
office and present a valid student I.D. 

The cost of the permit is adjusted each year. 
Payment must be made by cash, check, or credit 
card (Mastercard or Visa). 

Students who have visitors to the UMCP 
campus should tell their friends to park at paid 
meter spaces or purchase a visitor permit at the 
Department of Campus Parking Office. 

Parking Tickets 

At the University, ticketing begins on the first 
day of classes. If you feel undeserving of a 
ticket, you may appeal it through the Student 
Parking Appeals Office (SPAO), or request a 
Prince George's District Court Trial (PGDC). 
See the back of the ticket for instructions on how 
to schedule a trial. If you appeal to SPAO you 
must go to the SPAO office, second floor 
Mitchell Building and file a form. This form 
must be completed and returned to SPAO within 
15 calendar days from the date the ticket was 

A student board will review your appccil and 
do one of three things: (1) void the ticket, (2) 
reduce the fine, or (3) deny the appeal. Towing 
fees may be appealed through the department 
initiating the tow.

Office of the Bursar 

Lee Building 

Q: When will I receive a bill? 

A: If you attend one of the orientation sessions 
held before July 13, 1990 you should receive a 
combination bill-schedule for Fall 1990 
around mid-July. Those students who attend 
orientation after July 13th will receive a 
bill-schedule around the middle of August. 

Q: When is payment of the bill due? 

A: Payment for room, board, tuition and all 
associated fees is due in full by September 4, 
1990, whether or not you receive a bill. Checks 
should be made payable to the University of 
Maryland and should include the student's social 
security number on the front of the check. 
Students may pay with Visa and MasterCard at 


the walk-up window at the Bursar's office, first 
floor lobby, Lee Building or with the mail-in 

Q: What should I do if I don 't receive a bill? 

A: Write or call the Student Accounts Office on 
(301) 454-4832 as soon as possible if you have 
not received a bill before school starts. We 
will advise you of any problems regarding 
your registration or bill and/or the correct 
amount to pay. The University cannot assimie 
responsibility for the non-receipt of bills so 
make sure the bill is paid in full by the first 
day of class to avoid additional charges 
and/or penalties. 

Q: What will happen if I don 'tpay the bill by the 
first day of class? 

A: The University of Maryland does not have a 
deferred payment plan. It is the policy of the 
University not to defer payment of fees on 
the basis of a pending apphcation for 
financial assistsmce from an outside agency 
such as banks, Stafford Student Lx)an 
program, etc. Students who fail to pay their 
bill will have all University services severed, 
will be charged a $25.00 severance fee, a late 
fee of $5 (or 5% whichever is higher), and 
will have their account transferred to the 
State Central Collection Unit with a 
minimum 15% collection charge added. 

Q: What will happen to my room and board if 
services are severed? 

A: Severance of housing services means that the 
student will be asked to vacate the room; the 
student's room will be assigned to another 
student and the student will be placed at the 
bottom of the waiting list once services are 
restored. For a student on a board plan 
whose services are severed, no meals are 
served until the account is satisfied. 

Q: What do I do if I decide not to attend the 

A: Students who register and later decide not to 
attend the University must cancel their 
registration in writing with the Registrations 
office, prior to the first day of class to incur 
no financial obligation to the University. 
Failure to officially cancel your registration 
will result in being jissessed charges even 
though you do not attend class. In addition. 

students on room and board should check 
each one of these separate contracts for the 
correct cancellation deadlines and 
procedures. Fjiilure to cancel each one of 
these separate obUgations (Registration, 
Dining Services, and Resident Life) wiU 
result in charges. Unfortunately, students 
tend to assume withdrawal from Registration 
cancels all obligations. That is not correct. 

Q: Whom do I notify of a change of address ? 

A: Since many University communications are 
sent through the mail, it is imperative that an 
accurate and up-to-date address is 
maintained for you. Changes can be made to 
your local or permanent mailing addresses at 
any time by completing an Address Change 
Form at the Office of the Burszu", 1103 Lee 
Building or the Registrations Counter, 1st 
Floor Lobby Mitchell Building. 

Q: How do I obtain a refund of a credit balance 
on my account? 

A: No credit balance is automatically refunded. 
That is, a student must file a request in 
writing to obtain a refund. This is done by 
addressing a letter to the Refund Unit, Office 
of the Bursar, or by completing a refund 
request form at the Student Accounts 
Counter, 1103 Lee Building or the 
Withdrawal Office, 1st Floor, Mitchell 
Building. It takes approximately two to three 
weeks, from the time a credit balance 
appears on the account and a refund request 
is received, until a check is mailed from the 
State Treasurer's Office in Annapolis. 

Q: What do I do if I have been awarded financial 

A: University scholarships and grants will be 
credited directly to your account as long as 
you early-register for at least 12 credits. A 
check for any balsmce remaining will be 
available from the Office of the Bursar. Two 
important items should be noted regarding 
financial aid: 

1) In order to receive financial aid, the award 
letter indicating acceptance of the offered 
aid must be received by the Office of 
Student Financial Aid. 

2) Students on scholarships and grants are ex- 
j)ected to maintain a semester credit load of 
12 credits. In the event a student drops 


below this level, the scholarship or grant is 
automatically cancelled leading to an 
indebtedness to the University. Any student 
considering dropping credits should contact 
their financial aid counselor before taking 
such action. 

Q: What do I need to do to pick up my Financial 

Aid Check? 
A: All financial aid checks, including Stafford 
Student Loan, Perkins Lx)an grzmt and 
scholsirships checks, are disbursed by 
appointment only. The Office of the Bursar 
will notify you by mail when there is a check 
available for you. Appointments must be 
made by telephoning 454-4429.

fee schedules, disbursement of financial aid, etc.,

Whether living with your parents or commuting 
from your own apartment, the Office of 
Commuter Affjiirs (OCA) sponsors valuable 
services for you. Check with us if you need 
assistance with: off-campus housing 
information, commuter information, 
transportation or parking information. 

• Off-Campus Housing: 

OCA maintains up-to-date computerized 
Ustings of furnished and unfurnished rooms, 
apartments, and houses (both vacant and to 
share) which are for rent in the area; they are 
organized by cost, type of housing and distance 
from campus. Personalized printouts tailored to 
your individual needs can be requested to 
simplify your housing search. Be sure to bring 
your student ID or letter of admission when 
requesting a printout. Peer advisors are 
available from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., 
Monday-Friday to provide assistance. Area 
maps, ap2U'tment directories, a landlord 
complaint file, model lejises, and information on 
tenzmt-landlord rights and responsibilities are 
also available in the office to aid in your housing 

• Transportation: 

Students who are interested in carpool options

programs, and priority parking through 
contacting the OCA. The office has schedules

Types of Living Arrangements On-Campus 

Residence Halls 

A range of physical settings is available in the 
University residence hjills. 

High-rise residence halls dominate the north 
side of the campus. The "complexes" or 
groupings of high-rise halls around a central 
dining facility are near most athletic arenas and 
other recreational resources of the campus. As 
many as 550 students live in a high-rise hall. 

Older Georgian/Colonial-style residence halls 
are located on the south side of campus. These 
"Hill Area" halls in the North Hill and South Hill 
clusters of residence halls are close to most 
librziries and the academic core of the campus. 
These halls are smaller, not more than three or 
four stories high and houses from 35 to 260 

In these traditional "dormitory-style" residence 
halls, there are bed/study rooms for two students 
(as well as singles for upperclass students and 
triples or quads). Each floor also has limited 
lounge and meeting space for small groups of 
residents and friends. Room sizes and features 
vary considerably with the age and physical 
layout of each hall. 

It is to these traditional "dormitory-style" 
residence halls that entering freshmen and 
transfer students should expect to be assigned. 

Within many of the older residence hcdls on 
South Hill, renovations have been completed. 
Apartments with kitchens or kitchenless suites 
for four to eight students, in the place of double 
bedrooms and communal baths, are common in 
these buildings. Freshmcm and new transfer 
students should not expect to initially be 
assigned to these apartments or suites. 

Apartment units for four to sk students are 
located in Leonardtown, found across Route 1 
from the main part of campus. Apartments are 
reserved for upper-class students; freshman and 
new transfer students are not assigned here. 
Apartments include fully equipped kitchens, 
private baths, all furnishings and carpeting.

Housing Rules/Guidelines 

Roommate Assignments 

New students are assigned randomly, so there 
is no way for you to choose where or with whom 
you will be assigned. However, efforts are made 
to satisfy students' preferences in the following 

Co-educational or single-sex hall 

In the co-educational halls, men and women 
are assigned on separate floors or wings of the 
same building. More than 60 percent of campus 
residents hve in co-educational halls. 

Limited or unlimited visitation privileges 

In most halls, the residents are not limited in 
hours of the day they may have guests of the 
opposite sex visit in their rooms. In other halls, 
limited visitation hours aic maintained, meaning 
that guests of the opposite sex are not permitted 
from 12 midnight to 8:00 a.m. weeknights and 
1:30 a.m. to 8:00a.m. weekends. There are no 
curfews or time restrictions for residents to enter 
or leave their haWs. 

Smoker preferred as a roommate 

If you do not mind rooming with someone who

Sometimes, the two students assigned together 
in a room are not able to work out a cooperative 
roommate relationship. The R.A. on the floor

will And that some expectations or rules must 
exist in residence halls as they must in any 
community of people. 

Because the residence halls are on campus to 
support your academic purpose for being here, 
most rules exist to guide and support learning 
and respect for others while encouraging 
positive interaction between students. Generally 
speaking, these standards rest on one simple 
notion, that each resident give the same courtesies, 
respect and consideration to others that you expect 

for yourself. In the community of students living 
in a University residence hall, special emphasis is 
placed on each student being able to study 2md 

While you are a student at the University, you 
must abide by expectations stated in the Code of 
Student Conduct (located in the kNow Chapter 
of this handbook). As a resident on the campus, 
you must abide by expectations stated in the 
Residence Hall Agreement jmd other residence 
hall documents. For further information about 
these and other rules, please contact the Office 
of Resident Life, located in Annapolis Hall.

D inin g rooms, restaurants and eateries are 
conveniently located in all areas of campus and

The Point Plan 

Students living on the campus participate in a 
declining balance "point" meal plan which works 
like a prepaid charge card. The board fee minus 
an administrative charge, is converted to 
"points." Points are used to purchcise food a la 
carte from over 30 restaurcints and eateries all 
across campus. 

The points are accessed using a meal card 
that is presented to the cashier to pay for meals. 
After each transaction, the remaining balance is 
displayed at the register and a receipt is 

D.S. Cash 

D.S. Cash is a pre-paid declining balance 
meal card specially designed for the needs of 
faculty, staff, commuting students and resident 
students living in apartments. D.S. Cash works 
in much the same manner as the Point Plan.

The capital city of Maryland is beautiful, 
historic Annapolis. Located on the water, less 
than one-hour from campus, the downtown docks 
are a perfect setting for a sunny afternoon 
shopping spree, sightseeing or for a moonlit walk 
along the water. While there, visit the State House, 
the Maritime Museum, Ote Naval Academy, a 
variety of historic inns or take a sailing lesson. 
For easy access, take the Beltway South (toward 
Richmond) to exit 19 (Route 50 East/John 
Hanson Highway) and follow the signs to the 
''historic downtown" exit. For more information, 
contact the Annapolis Office of Tourism. 


Inner Harbor 

One of the g^eat ports of the world, Baltimore 
has undergone a recent and remarkable 
renaissance. Baltimore 's inner harbor now glistens 
with new office towers, quaint shops, and ethnic 
restaurants representing its many colorful 
neighborhoods. James Rouse Harbor Place Mall 
and the new National Aquarium anchor the Inner 
Harbor and have transformed it into a cultural 
maffiet that each year attracts thousands of 

Baltimore Orioles 

Also located downtown is the historical 
Memorial Stadium where you can see the famous 
Baltimore Orioles. For ticket information and 
game schedule contact: The Ticket Office in the 
Stamp Union Basement Phone : 454-2803. 

Preakness Stakes 

One of the three triple crown races in horse 
racing the Preakness Stakes, is held each spring in 
Baltimore. For more information contact the 
Baltimore Office of Promotion and Tourism at

Washington, D.C 


Downtown Washington D.C. boasts many of 
the nation's most famous historical buildings, 
monuments and documents. Some of these 

include: the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington 
Monument, the Vietnam Memorial, Arlington 
National Cemetary (across the Potomac River in 
Arlington, Virginia), the Capitol Building the 
Whitehouse, and several great museums including 
the Smithsonian, Museum of Science and 
Industry, National Gallery of Art, the Library of 
Congress and much more!!! Because the 
University campus is located only nine miles from 
downtown, Washington is easily accessible. The 
easiest mode of transportation to and from 
downtown is the Metrorail system. The following 
is a description of how to use the "metro" to get to 
various downtown locations. 

Your first trip downtown would be best 
accomplished on a weekend, since it is less 
crowded and the people downtown on weekends 
(tourists) will be as lost as you. Start your trip by 
boarding a Metro-Bus in front of the Stamp Union 
(Route R-2 southbound) and stay on until 
Brookland Metro Station. The Metro-Bus stops in 
front of the Union every 60 minutes and will cost 
about $1.25 on weekends. Make sure you bring 
plenty of change since the bus drivers do not make 
change. Schedules for other rates are available at 
the Stamp Union Information Desk. 

Entering the Metrorail station may make you 
feel as if you have slipped ahead into the Twilight 
Zone. The Metro stations are all ultramodern and 
very automated At the entrance of every metro 
station is a placard that details the Metro farecard 
systems. It is a three-step process to obtain a Metro 
farecard. First, find a farecard machine and 
insert a one dollar bill into the machine (wrinkled 
dollars don't work well). Next, select the farecard 
value you need (it will automatically show the 
amount you inserted). Lastly, push the button on 
the right and remove your farecard. Use your 
farecard to enter the Metro system by inserting it 
into the gate with the green light and white arrow. 
Upon exiting the Metro system, insert the card 
again. It will be returned to you if there is money 
left on it. 


Once on the Metro system at Brookland, you 
will need to travel on the Red line until you arrive 
at Metro Center. You will then get off at Metro 
Center and transfer to the Orange Line going 
towards New Carrollton or on the Blue Line 
toward National Airport. Once having transferred 
lines, disembark at the Smithsonian exit, and you 


will find yourself in the middle of all the museums, 
the White House, Washington Monument, and the 

First priority should be a perusal of some of the 
museums that interest you. The Smithsonian 
Institute is not one building, but a series of over ten 
different museums. A place to start might be the 
Air and Space Museum, which contains incredible 
displays of aviation and space history, as well as a 
planetarium, and two films "To Fly" and the 
"Living Planet" which are spectacular scenic 
voyages around our globe on a five story high 
screen. These two films are an absolute must for 
Washington explorers. 

Another Smithsonian must is the East Wing in 
the National Gallery of Art. Construction was 
completed on this architectural wonder in 1978. A 
walk around the building with its moving 
sidewalk, indoor waterfall, and perhaps a bite to 
eat in their excellent cafeteria will highlight any trip 
to the Smithsonian. No matter what part of the 
Smithsonian you visit, a fun and enjoyable day is 
yours. So, don 't miss out on the opportunity to 


Washington is famous for both its fantastic 
restaurants and its wide variety of nightspots. 
Perhaps the greatest concentration of excellent 
restaurants, bars, and shops is in Georgetown. The 
heart of Georgetown is located on Wisconsin and 
M Streets downtown. Georgetown is largely a 
walking experience, with thousands of people on a 
sunny afternoon or on a clear Friday night 
wandering from place to place. Unlike the rest of 
Washington, it is easiest to drive into Georgetown 
and park as near as possible to the comer of 
Wisconsin and M Streets. 

There are many other areas that offer quality 
establishments that serve a variety of food and 
refreshments. Connecticut Avenue north and south 
ofDupont Circle (a Metro Rail station) is famous 
for its sandwich shops, movie theaters and 
restaurants. Another excellent area is on 
Pennsylvania Avenue north of the Capitol-south 
Metro stop. This area, fondly called "Capitol 
Hill", has many ethnic restaurants where the 
executive crowd from Washington hang out. 


At the beginning of each fall semester, the 
Stamp Student Union keeps its doors open until 
dawn with the annual All-Niter. Food 
demonstrations, movies, music, games and more 
programs than you can imagine are squeezed into 
every room, lounge and hallway of the Union. It's 
our invitation to you to explore what we have to 
offer and to be guest for a night of continuous

Things To Do Or Jain 


Campus Activities 

1191 Stamp Union 

Most new students come to the University 
seeking ways of getting involved. You may know 
that involvement in out-of-class activities is an 
excellent way to make new friends, expand your 
interests, learn more about yourself and others, 
and really become a part of campus life. 
Students who get involved are more likely to stay 
in school and graduate. Yet as a new member of 
the campus community - with classes, friends, 
and maybe a pjirt-time job - how can you find out 
more about getting involved? 

A good place to start is the Office of Campus 
Activities, located m 1191 Stamp Union. 
Campus Activities serves as a major resource for 
student groups. We pubUsh Pathfmder, which 
describes our student groups, a Registered 
Student Organization Directory, which Usts 
contact information for over 360 student 
organizations, zmd The One Minute Newsletter, 
a biweekly calendar and information source. 

If you really want to become involved, keep 
your eyes open for Diamondback 
announcements and the numerous flyers posted 
on kiosks around campus. This is how most 
student groups get the word out. Don't be afraid 


to go to an initial meeting just to listen and check 
it out. 

Whether you're interested in contacting the 
Ski Club, finding out about concerts and plays, 
improving your leadership skills, or starting your 
own student group, don't let a lack of know-how 
keep you from getting started. Stop by the 
Office of Campus Activities. We'll be glad to 
help. Welcome to Maryland! 


At the beginning of each fall semester, the 
Stamp Student Union keeps its doors open until

Greek Week 


April and Fraternity Row mean only one 
thing: Greek Week. The members of the 50 
fraternities and sororities combine their talents 
and energy in a week long celebration of the 
spirit and unity of the Greek System at 
Mzuyland. The week begins with a re-dedication 
ceremony, continues with a wide variety of 
events each day designed to enhance 
philanthropy, spirit, competition and the success 
of the Greek System. Regardless of the reasons, 
it's an experience guaranteed to create 
excitement in participants and/or observers. 


One of the biggest events of the year is

competitive events and activities designed to get

Night, Pep Rally and Bonfire, and of course, the 
popular Homecoming Parade. Recent additions 
include a major concert and a University-wide 
philanthropy. Thanks to the members of the

The Code of Academic Integrity 

The university is an academic community, and like all other communities, it can function properly if its 
members adhere to clearly established goals and values. Essential is the commitment to the 
principles of truth and academic honesty. The Code of Academic Integrity is designed to ensure 
that these principles are upheld. The following is an overview of its main components: 
o Definitions. Any of the following acts, when committed by a student, constitutes academic 

(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 violate cmy provision of this Code. 

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

o Responsibility . All members of the University community share responsibihty and authority to 
challenge and make known the acts of appjirent academic dishonesty. 

o Honor pledge. All appUcants for admission and all registered students will be expected to sign an 
honor pledge as a condition of admission and at each registration. The pledge will be written by 
the student Honor Council in the Fall 1990 semester and must be approved by the Campus Senate. 

° Procedures. 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 student Honor Council. 
Members of the Honor Council investigate the matter. If they find reasonable cause to beheve 
that an act of academic dishonesty has occurred or has been attempted, the matter is resolved in 
an honor review. The review is conducted by an Honor Board consisting of three students, two 
faculty members, and a non-voting presiding officer, who may be a student. The honor review is 
an investigation not in the character of a criminal or civil proceeding; it is not modeled on these 
adversarial systems. The Honor Board actively investigates the charge and questions participants. 
Students must iissume responsibihty for their defense; the role of advisors is limited to making 
opening amd closing statements and giving advice. If the student is found to have committed 
academic dishonesty, the Honor Board recommends a penalty to the dean of the college in which 
the offense took place. 

o Grade of "XF." The grade of "XF' will normally be imposed in cases of academic dishonesty, in 
addition to other action taken (e.g., suspension or expulsion). It is intended to denote a failure to 
exhibit the fundamental value of academic honesty, and shall be recorded on the transcript with 
the notation, "failure due to academic dishonesty." The student may petition the Honor Council 
to remove the grade of "XP and replace it with the grade of "P provided that : (1) at least 12 
months have passed since the imposition of the "XP, (2) the student has successfully completed a 
non-credit seminar on academic integrity, and (3) the student has not been found responsible for 
any other act of academic dishonesty or similar disciplinary offense at the University of Maryljuid 
or another institution. Generally, the grade of "XP will not be removed if awarded for an act 
requiring significant premeditation. No student with an "XP on the student's transcript shiill 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 funds 

Declaration of Student Rights 

Consistent with properly adopted and disseminated poUcies and procedures and with applicable law, 
and in consideration of the students' joining together in this community, the university and its 
representatives seek to ensure the following rights for all students. These rights carry with them 
duties and responsibilities. To protect and preserve the rights of others in the university community, 
they are therefore subject to those restrictions defined by law or necessary for the enforcement of 
university policies and procedures, and of agreements entered into freely. 

Expression and Inquiry 

Every student has the right to freedom of opinion and expression on all subjects and is individually 
responsible for the consequences of any abuse of these freedoms. No student shall be prevented 
from exercising his or her right of self-expression or inquiry because of the content or topic of the 
expression or inquiry. 

These rights include the freedom to hold opinions without interference, to seek, receive and impart 
information and ideas of all kinds orally, in writing, in print, in the form of art, or through any chosen 

Participation, Association, and Assembly 

Every student has the right to participate freely in the intellectual, cultural, and political life of the 

university conmiunity, to enjoy the fellowship of his or her colleagues, and to assemble peaceably 

and associate. 

Thought , Conscience, and Religion 

Every student has the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and reUgion. 

This right includes the freedom to manifest one's reUgion or beUef in discussion, practice, worship and 
observance, either alone or in community with others. No student shall be harassed or molested on 
account of his or her religious persuasion, profession, or practice, but may not under color of 
rehgion disrupt the order or safety of the campus community or infringe upon others' civil or 
religious rights. No student may be compelled to attend or prohibited from attending any religious 
service or observance. 

Privacy, Autonomy, Personal and Intellectual 

All students have the right to be secure in their persons, dwellings, papers, communications, and 
effects. No student shall be subjected to interference with his or her privacy in the family, in the 
home, in the autonamy of choice in consensual intimate relations, or in any private matter relevant to 
the personal identity and well-being of the individual. Every student has the right to protection of 
the moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, hterary, or artistic production of which 
he or she is the author. No student shall be denied the right to take all reasonable and proportionate 
measures to protect his or her person. 

Discipline and Due Process 

In all disciplinary proceedings, students shall have the right to be informed of the accusation, to receive 
promptly a copy of the complaint, and to have access to relevjmt material to be introduced in order 
to guarantee the abihty to prepare a defense. They shall have the right to be assisted by an advisor 
who may be an attorney, to have access to procedures for securing the appearance of reluctcmt as 
well as friendly witnesses in disciplinjuy hearings, and to receive a timely and impartial proceeding. 


No student may be compelled to testify against himself or herself, although a negative inference may 
be drawn from any person's failure to respond to relevant questions in a judicial proceeding. 

Equality of Rights and Equal Protection

abridged or denied because of race, color, creed, sex, marital status, personal appearzmce, age,

be granted to use amplifying equipment in the vicinity of residence halls only upon specific written 
request of the student government of the residence halls affected. 

4. Individual students or organizational representatives using amplifying equipment must accept

Policy On Demonstrations 

(As adopted by the University Senate, June 2, 1970) 
I.General Statement 

a. The University of Maryland cherishes the right of individual students or student groups to dissent 
and to demonstrate, provided such demonstrations do not disrupt normeil campus activities, or in- 
fringe upon the rights of others. 

b. On the other hand, the University will not condone behavior which violates the freedom of speech, 
choice, assembly, or movement of other individuals or groups. In short, responsible dissent carries 
with it a sensitivity for the civil rights of others. 

c. Accordingly, the University will take whatever steps it deems necessary to: 

(1) protect the right of zmy individual or group to demonstrate and publicly proclaim any view, 
however unpopular; 

(2) protect the freedom of speech, assembly and movement of any individual or group which is 
the object of demonstrations. 

To achieve the foregoing objectives the following guidelines have been developed for operation at 
College Park: 

II.Guidelines For General Demonstrations 

a. Unscheduled demonstrations, "teach-ins," rallies, or equivalent activities may be held by 
recognized university organizations and activities, full or part-time students, and current 
employees of the University in the areas defined below provided that the activity does not 
interfere with any function for which that space has been reserved in advance. 

1. The Central Mall 

2. Physical education and intramural field between University Boulevard and parking area 1. 

3. Athletic practice fields east of Byrd Stadium. 

4. North Mall between Campus Drive and Washington-Baltimore Boulevard. 

5. South Mall between Regents Drive jmd Washington-Baltimore Boulevard. 


All activities in these areas must be conducted so as to avoid interference with the regularly 
scheduled functions of the Ubrary and or classrooms adjacent to the aita and in compUance 
with the provisions contained in Ilg, 1-8. 

Failure to reserve space will not invjjidate the privilege of conducting the appropriate activity. 
However, in the event of two or more groups desiring to use a given space, an approved space 
reservation will take precedence over an unscheduled activity. If two or more groups desire a 
space when no reservation has been made, the first come, first served principle will apply. 

b. Recognized University organizations and activities, full or part-time students, and current 

employees of the University who wish to schedule a demonstration, "teach-in," rally, or equiv- 
alent activity, may request the space through the facihties reservation procedure up to 24 hours 
in advance. Demonstrations will be permitted in the locations outlined in Ila above, unless the 
space has previously been reserved or is in use for academic activities or intercollegiate athletic 
team practices. Demonstrations may be held at other locations on the campus subject to 
approval by the Vice President for Student Affairs. Students who participate in demonstrations 
which have not been approved may be considered in violation of University pohcy. (Except as 
provided in iia, above.) 

c. Demonstrations, rziUies, or "teach-ins" may be conducted in or adjacent to any residential 

building with the specific written concurrence of the student government of the unit or area 
concerned. Any such ralhes, demonstrations or "teach-ins" which may be authorized by the 
appropriate student government must conform to the general procedures contained in Ilg, 1-8. 

d. Demonstrations in the form of piu^ades on streets may be conducted with the specific approval of 

route and time secured 48 hours in advance from the University PubUc Safety and Security Office. 

e. Although groups may sponsor or organize demonstrations, rallies, "teach-ins", or picketing 

activities, the fact of group sponsorship or organization in no way reheves individuals of the 
responsibihty for their own conduct, and each individual participating in such activities is 
accountable for compliance with the provisions of this jwUcy. 

f. Persons not members of the University student body, faculty or staff may pzirticipate in 

demonstrations, rallies, picketing, "teach-ins", or equivalent activities only upon invitation by a 
bona fide student, faculty or staff member. All non-students are obligated to the terms of this 
policy during participation in such activities. Since p)ersons not student, faculty or staff members 
are not subject to University discipline procedures, failure to comply with terms of this poUcy 
may result in action under terms of appropriate Maryland law. 

g. In addition to the above provisions, the following guidelines will apply to all demonstrations. 

1. Reasonable access to and exit from any office or building must be m<iintained. The 

right-of-way on public streets and sidewalks will be maintained. 

2. Demonstrators will not attempt to force the cancellation or interruption of any event 

six)nsored by a University office or by a faculty or student group or by any group 
authorized to use University facilities. 

3. Classes or other educational activities in classroom buildings and the Ubrary will not be 


4. The use of pubUc address systems, loudspeakers, etc., in the vicinity of academic and 

residence buildings will follow procedures set forth above. 

5. Demonstrations may be carried on inside of the University buildings only as provided in 
Sections lie and 4 or with approval of the Facilities Use Committee as outlined in the 
University General and Academic Regulations. 

6. Where an invited speaker is the object of protest, students and faculty may demonstrate 

outside the building where the lecture will tjike place. Demonstrators who wish to enter 
the building must do so as members of the audience and must give the speaker a respectful 
hearing. Signs, placards or other paraphernalia associated with a demonstration will not 
be carried into the building. 

7. University prop)erty must be protected at cill times. 


8. The safety and well-being of members of the University community collectively and 
individually must be protected at all times, 
h. Complaints received from users of the Library or classrooms adjacent to the defined areas (Ila.) 
will be grounds for disciplinary action against individuals and/or groups sponsoring or 
participating in rallies, "teach-ins" or demonstrations in these areas. 

ni. Guidelines For Demonstrations In Connection With Placement Programs 

a. Anyone wishing to question or protest the on-campus presence of any recruiting organization 

should contact the Director of the Career Development Center or hds/her representative in 

b. Should any member of the University Community wish to discuss or protest the internjil policies of 

any recruiting organization, the Director of the Career Development Center must be contacted 
for assistance in communicating directly with the appropriate representatives of said 

c. Demonstration guidelines outlined in Section Ilg, 1-8 are applicable. 

d. Demonstrations in conjunction with placement programs conducted in the Career Development 

Center's facility or other faciUty shall be considered not to infringe upon the rights of others and 
the normal functioning of placement programs provided that demonstrations are conducted 
outside of the facility and do not interfere with free and open access to the Career Development 
Center facihties by those students, faculty, staff, and visitors who wish to conduct business within 
the framework of established placement programs. 

IV. Special Guidelines Pertaining to the Stamp Union 

a. No demonstrations, raUies, "teach-ins" or equivalent activities may be held in the lobbies or 

corridors of the Stamp Union. 

b. Demonstrations may be held in assigned rooms of the Stamp Union by recognized student 

organizations following procedures for reserving space which have been outlined by the Stamp 
Union Board. 

V. Guidelines For Picketing 

a. Legal Rights and Limitations. Orderly picketing is a legally established form of expression which 

recognizes the individual's right of free expression subject only to such reasonable limitations as 
are imposed by State legislation and University regulations. These limitations are intended to 
protect the rights of the picketer, the student body and the pubUc with particular concern for 
safety, preservation of normal academic life and order, and the protection of persons and 

b. Conduct of Picketers. 

1. Picketers are subject to those regulations listed above in Section II, g, 1-8. 

2. Picketers will not disrupt any University activity by making excessive noise in the vicinity of 

any University building. 

3. The University Health Service is off-limits to picketers because special silence and other 

welfare safety factors are involved. 

Alcoholic Beverage Policy and Procedures
