Keep in Mind:

  • In order to provide visit opportunities to the greatest number of students, we ask that you only register for one on-campus visit (this includes Terrapin Tours and Maryland Information Session & Tours).
  • Please only bring up to 2 guests with you during your visit. No exceptions will be made for larger groups.
  • If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or are feeling ill, we encourage you to cancel your visit and reschedule at a later date when you are feeling better. To cancel, please email using the subject line "Visit Cancellation” and include the date of your visit in the body of your email.
