Welcome to Terp Parent


Tell us what you think banner image
The Office of Parent and Family Affairs is conducting our biennial survey of the parents of the university’s undergraduate students. Your feedback is very important to us and will be instrumental in helping us evaluate and improve our communication, services and programs for parents.
Spring Break is upon us, and for many students the first collegiate Spring Break experience is a rite of passage. Spring Break is often a time to travel with friends to Mexico, hit the snowy slopes of the Rocky Mountains, head overseas to explore a new place, or participate in a UMD sponsored service-learning trip.
As the leaves continue to change and the cooler weather settles on campus, we are reminded that the Fall semester is halfway through and Thanksgiving break is right around the corner.  When you talk with your student about academic progress, campus organizations they may have joined, registering for Spring semester classes, and the many aspects of college life, be sure to include alcohol use as part of your conversation. 
Streesed student studying
Are you curious about your first-year student’s academic progress?  Your student should be able to share information with you soon.  All freshman students receive Early Warning Grades to provide a mid-term assessment of their academic progress and are good indicators of your student's performance.  The grades are normally reported by the tenth week of class and can be accessed online.
