Important Considerations

Students should visit Calendars & Deadlines to determine when registration opens and closes, and for cancellation, drop, and withdrawal deadlines associated with either the UMCP or WDC format. Here are other considerations:

  • Students admitted to a graduate program in Applied Economics are required to maintain continuous enrollment for courses as outlined in the plan of study. See Academic Policies for a Waiver of Continuous Registration or Leave of Absence.
  • Except for the 12-week Summer Term, students admitted into the UMCP format may not enroll in courses/sections offered in the WDC format or vice-versa.
  • Students Provisionally Admitted on an Unofficial Transcript: Official transcripts indicating receipt of the degree must be submitted before the end of the first semester. Registration for a second semester will not be permitted unless these documents are received by the Graduate School.
  • Students in face to face or blended programs are required to submit UMD’s Medical History and Immunization Record form prior to the first day of your first semester. 
  • Students must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA.
