UMD requires that all undergraduate students taking 6 or more credits have health insurance. Students are required to provide proof of health insurance by completing an on-line waiver once each academic year. Many students are covered on a family plan and do not need to purchase additional insurance from the university. Be sure your student completes the online waiver to prevent automatic enrollment in the University’s Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).

The University of Maryland has had a long and rich relationship with its collegiate fraternities and sororities stretching back more than 100 years.  As an important component of the co-curricular programs for undergraduate students, fraternities and sororities have supported the central mission of the University by providing an enriched out-of-class living/learning experience since they were first founded here on campus back in 1913.
