Medical Information Form
Health Services and Insurance
The Medical Information Form requests evidence of health insurance coverage. The form is used in the event the student requires medical attention. Should the student require such attention, s/he will be taken to the University Health Center or to the nearest hospital, depending on the severity of the injury or illness. The parent/guardian must make immediate arrangements to assume responsibility for the student’s health care. Although this form facilitates admittance, it does not permit the University to assume responsibility for a student’s health care. A student may also visit the Health Center any time during the hours of operation. The student will be billed for any services or treatment rendered.

Freshmen First Program staff will not administer any medications. Students must take responsibility for all medication needs and may self-administer. If the student requires assistance with their medication, then it is advised that arrangements be made with the Health Center. For contact information, click here.
- The program does not have a medication storage location at the residence hall. Serums and medications which require refrigeration may be stored at the Health Center or a student may wish to rent a mini-refrigerator for their dorm room. For rental information, click here.

Participation in CRS activities, including use of facilities and equipment, is completely voluntary. There are risks and hazards, minor and serious, associated with participation in athletic and fitness related activities. Participants voluntarily assume all responsibility and risk of loss, damage, illness, and/or injury to person or property associated with participation in CRS activities.

During the fall and spring semesters, the University of Maryland’s Dining Services offers an extensive selection to accommodate the dietary needs of over 35,000 students and staff. During Summer Term, Dining Services operates under constrained resources and offers a limited range of options and dietary accommodations. Students who require dietary accommodations must submit a request by the program confirmation deadlines.

- For complete information, click here.
- Students with temporary disabilities, such as broken legs or sprained ankles, must contact the University Health Center 301-314-8180.
Students with a disability seeking housing assistance must e-mail email@example.com.

The program package fee does not include a parking permit. To park on campus, students must have a valid permit. Campus parking regulations are strictly enforced at all times, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The University’s Department of Transportation Services (DOTS) uses a License Plate Recognition system, such that the car’s license plate serves as the parking permit. Enforcement officers scan license plates and, if the plate is not listed in the database for that parking lot, a ticket will be issued.

E-mail Usage & Setting-Up Your University E-Mail
- E-mail is the official medium used by the University to disseminate information.
- E-mail is used to send important program and campus information.
- E-mail is used by the course instructor to send course-related information.
- Students are responsible for reading all e-mails, keeping their e-mail addresses up-to-date, or for redirecting or forwarding e-mail to another address. Failure to check e-mail, errors in forwarding e-mail, and returned e-mail (from “full mailbox” or “unknown user” errors for example), will not excuse a student from missing announcements, messages, deadlines, etc.
Setting-up Your UMD E-mail
Students who have confirmed admission may set-up a University e-mail account. You will have access to this account up through the last day of the program. You must first confirm the Directory ID before you can set-up your UMD e-mail.
Updating the Contact Information on the Student Record
The University uses e-mail submitted on the student application as the e-mail of record. Course instructors use the e-mail of record to disseminate information. It is the responsibility of the admitted student to ensure that s/he receives such e-mails. Only the student may change the e-mail of record.
