The Office of Extended Studies administers Summer Term, Winter Term, Freshmen Connection, Freshmen First, Pre-College Programs, Professional Programs, and Continuing Education Programs.
The Freshmen First Program prepares incoming first-year students for living and learning at the University of Maryland. The program eases the transition to the university environment. In this three-week summer program, students enroll for four-credits, attend seminars and social activities, meet and study with other incoming freshmen, and reside on campus or commute from home.
The Young Scholars Program, a three-week summer program, invites rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to pursue academic interests, discover career opportunities, earn university credits, and explore university life. Highly qualified students enroll in a three-credit introductory course featuring field trips and guest speakers. Students participate in workshops and seminars that further enrich their university experience and reside on campus or commute from home.
Continuing Education Programs include preparation for professional schools, graduate programs, and professional achievement. Programs include post-baccalaureate opportunities, and customized initiatives that include seminars, work force training, and short courses crafted for industry application.
