Welcome to Terp Parent
College is often the first time a student has complete responsibility for his or her own nutrition. Although college life often conjures up visions of mid-night pizza deliveries, mini-fridges filled with greasy takeout food containers or 3:00 am raids of the vending machines, there are still ways a student can enjoy the college experience and stay well nourished.
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 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.
