Workshop enrollment is limited and processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Workshops do not post to the UMD transcript and do not count towards a student's academic record. Neither grade nor credit is earned. Students do not receive a University ID card and will not have access to University facilities such as recreation, transportation, and campus events. Workshop students may access UMD Libraries; for more information, see Visitors.

Non-credit workshops may be offered in face-to-face, online, or blended learning environments. ELMS provides access to static workshop content (syllabi, schedules, announcements, etc.) and to interactive tools (e.g., discussion groups, live chats, and online assessments).
