Applications are considered complete when the online application and all required documents have been submitted. All materials must be submitted electronically or postmarked by the appropriate deadline for consideration. You can track your application status and confirm receipt of application materials online through your MyCoalition account by visiting the Colleges section and reviewing your UMD checklist. It may take up to two weeks for recently submitted materials to be listed as received on your checklist and it is the applicant’s responsibility to confirm receipt of all application materials through MyCoalition. Visit our Submitting Documents page to learn how you can submit the items below for a completed application.
You do not need to submit your visa, certification of finances and other supporting international documents for a completed application; however, you will need to submit them if you are admitted to the university.
1. Completed online application
For priority consideration for admission and invitations to special programs, students should apply by the early action deadline. In the application, students will be asked to answer one of five essay prompts. Applications must be completed online, and all additional application materials must be postmarked by the appropriate deadline.
If you are mailing any application materials, please send them to:
University of Maryland
Office of Undergraduate Admissions
Mitchell Building, 7999 Regents Dr.
College Park, MD 20742-5235, USA
Although application materials can be submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions via postal mail, we encourage and prefer the electronic submission of required documents as our office has shifted to an online work environment in keeping with guidance from health and state officials during the COVID-19 pandemic.
