Questions? We can help.


  • International athletes: what happens after graduation if they’re not going pro?

    Maryland Athletics—you know them, you love them, you go to their games. Sporting events are an undeniable part of what it means to be a Terp—alums and current students alike can share in the same core memories of walking to SECU stadium or Xfinity Center, cheering as loud as they can when we score, and donning jerseys with an easy pride that lasts a lifetime. 

  • How to Recognize a Scam

    Be aware of scams targeting international students and scholars. Some UMD students have reported receiving calls or emails that their immigration status is at risk and they must pay a fee/fine to avoid being deported. These are scams!

  • Planning On Taking an Internship/Co-Op

    Are you an international student looking to intern/co-op between now and the end of Fall? The final day to request AND begin Fall 2023 Curricular Practical Training is November 1, 2023.
