Fall Orientation, Advisement & Registration

Bulldog OAR Overview

One of the main ways we offer support in your journey to UMD is through the Bulldog Orientation, Advisement & Registration (OAR) program. Mandatory for all incoming students, Bulldog OAR will introduce you to campus resources available to you throughout your time as a student, help you to begin to understand your UMD academics here, lift holds from your student account, and give you a chance to meet other students going through the same experience as you! 

Log into your Application Portal and make sure you are completing your Checklist. Updates will be emailed to you when new Checklist items are available.
