How to Enroll in UMD MCAT Prep

Deadlines | Current UMD Students | Non-UMD Students

Enrollment for UMD MCAT Prep is processed through Canvas Catalog, the university’s all-in-one non-credit workshop enrollment system that includes a payment gateway and links to ELMS, UMD’s online learning environment. ELMS provides access to static workshop content (syllabi, schedules, announcements, etc.) and to interactive tools (e.g., discussion groups, live chats, and online assessments). Enrollment is limited and processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Although UMD MCAT Prep is offered through face-to-face instruction, there are online elements.

UMD MCAT Prep is offered as a non-credit workshop. 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. All students who enroll in UMD non-credit workshops are subject to the rules, policies and regulations found at registrar.umd.edu and www.president.umd.edu/administration/policies.
