A
FRESHMAN APPLICATION CHECKLIST
 Application: Complete and submit the online application. This is the fastest and easiest way to complete the application. If necessary,
  it’s possible to print the online application, complete, sign and mail it to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
 Application Fee: If you apply online, you may submit a nonrefundable $55 application fee using a credit card (our website is secured by
  VeriSign) or be billed by the University separately. We accept the following credit cards: Visa, American Express, MasterCard and
  Discover. We regret that we cannot accept cash or honor debit cards. If you choose to submit your payment separately, include the
  student’s name and date of birth on the check, money order or credit card slip.
 High School Transcripts: Request an official copy of your current high school transcript. Your school counselor should send your
  transcript directly to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
 Recommendations: You may request that your school counselor and teacher complete the required recommendations using our new,
  secure online system either within the online application or at www.admissions.umd.edu. You will have the opportunity to provide
  names and email addresses of your recommenders. This will generate an email request from the university to your teacher and
  counselor asking them to complete a recommendation on your behalf. Teachers and counselors will be able to complete and submit
  their recommendations online, or they may choose to print and mail the completed forms to the address below.
 Test Scores: Request that all official standardized test scores be sent to the University of Maryland, College Park by the Education
  Testing Service or the ACT program. The SAT I code for the University of Maryland is 5814, and the ACT code is 1746. Standardized
  test scores sent by a high school are not considered official. Students who graduated from high school more than three years ago are
  not required to submit test scores. SAT II scores are not required.
 Essays: Complete and submit two essays. Each essay should be no more than 300 words.
 Short Answers: Complete each sentence in 20 words or less.
 Activities and Awards List: Submit a résumé or list of your community, arts, leadership, athletic, and family involvement; work, global
  or research experiences; and extracurricular activities and awards in the order of interest to you.
 College Transcripts: If you have completed college course work, submit an official copy of all your college transcripts. Transcripts
  should be sent directly from the institution to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
 English Proficiency: If English is not your native language- regardless of your citizenship-you must provide the university with
  verification of your proficiency in English. All applicants should have an official report of their scores from the Test of English as a
  Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) sent directly to the Office of Undergraduate
  Admissions by the appropriate application deadline. Please note that while TOEFL or IELTS scores are required to satisfy proficiency in
  English, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will conduct a full file review considering all application materials submitted in
  application package to make a determination about the student’s level of English proficiency.
 External Examination Results or Certificate (INTERNATIONAL ONLY): Where appropriate, external examination results or certificates
  must be received by the deadline for consideration. These include official results and certificates of completion from national
  secondary school exams such as GCSE/GCE, CBSE national and regional, CXC/CSEC and WAEC.
 Certification of Finances Form (INTERNATIONAL ONLY): Submit this form, along with documents such as a bank statement that
  demonstrate support of U.S. $44,331 per year.
 Photocopy of I-94 Arrival/Departure Record (INTERNATIONAL ONLY): Submit this photocopy, along with visa stamp and your current
  I-20 or DS2019 form (if already in the United States).
 Track your status online: After submitting your application, track your status at www.admissions.umd.edu. This website enables you
  to view a listing of documents received by the admissions office and monitor the completeness of your application. Because of the
  high volume of mail we receive, we cannot list documents the day they are received. There will be periods of time, especially as due
  dates approach, when documents may take several weeks to process.

ESSAYS
The college admissions process is an effort to uncover the aspects of your personality and experience that fit well with the University of
Maryland community. When considering your approach to the following essay questions, think deeply about your answers, making
them creative and succinct. We hope that you will use this opportunity as a time for self-reflection and intellectual meditation.

Please choose two of the following essay questions to answer. Each essay should be no more than 300 words. Include the question
you choose at the start of each essay. The question will not be included in the essay word count.

1) All first-year students at the University of Maryland read one book together as part of our First Year Book program. This year’s
   book, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn chronicles
   the courageous stories of women who, through education and microfinance strategies, were able to break free from oppressive
   situations. The authors show us how “social entrepreneurs,” both in the United States and around the world, create constructive
   social change through their innovative approaches to empower the women of the world.

         a.   Do you think there are groups of people whose potential contributions have not yet been fully realized or appreciated?
              What is something you have done, or would like to do in the future, to support one of these causes or groups?

         b.   Select your own book for the First Year Book program and tell us why you would want to share it with your classmates in
              the incoming class. Why does this book have personal meaning to you?

2) “Seek the fashion which truly fits and befits you. You will always be in fashion if you are true to yourself, and only if you are true to
   yourself. You might, of course, rightly wear that style which is emblazoned on the fashion magazines of the day, or you might not.”
   - Maya Angelou.
   There are no boundaries to personal style, whether it is expressed through the clothes you wear, the music you listen to, or the
   books you read. What does your style say about you?

3) “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” - Aristotle
   The intellectual, social and cultural differences embraced by the University of Maryland are integral to the fabric of our community.
   The strength of the University is realized through the contributions of every member of our campus. We understand each individual
   is a result of his/her personal background and experiences. Describe the parts that add up to the sum of you.

4) According to Henry David Thoreau, “One is not born into the world to do everything, but to do something.” What is your
   something?

5) Write your own question and respond to it. Please be sure to tell us why you think this essay represents you well. (Your question
   will not be included in the essay word count.)

In addition to answering two of the questions above, please include any additional information you would like to provide if
extenuating circumstances have affected your performance or extracurricular activities. This information is only necessary if these
circumstances have not been discussed in any other part of your application. Maximum 100 words.

ACTIVITIES AND AWARDS
Please submit a résumé or list of your community, arts, leadership, athletic and family involvement; work, global or research
experiences; and extracurricular activities and awards in the order of interest to you.
