The provisions of this publication are not to be regarded as an irrevocable contract
between the student and the University of Maryland. Changes are effected from time
to time in the general regulations and in the academic requirements. There are estab-
lished procedures for making changes, procedures which protect the institution's in-
tegrity and the individual student's interests and welfare. A curriculum or graduation
requirement, when altered, is not made retroactive unless the alteration is to the
student's advantage and can be accommodated within the span of years normally
required for graduation. When the actions of a student are judged by competent
authority, using established procedure, to be detrimental to the interests of the Uni-
versity community, that person may be required to withdraw from the University.

An Adventure in Learning

This booklet is the all-purpose general information publication of the Univer-
sity of Maryland at College Park. It is designed to assist the student as he begins
his adventure in learning as an undergraduate student.
It contains the information needed

— to arrange a high school curriculum for acceptance by the various

colleges of the University
— to help select a course of study at the University
— to apply for admission
— to matriculate
— to begin financial planning
More complete information will be found in the pertinent college course
catalog.

• This college course catalog will be made available to the student
after he enters the University, or

• He may consult reference copies in his high school library, princi-
pal's office, or office of the guidance counselor. College catalogs
usually require interpretation for new freshmen students and should,
therefore, be used in consultation with the high school guidance
counselor or principal.

• Students who aspire to do graduate study should refer to the
Graduate School Catalog.



The University of Maryland

In the year 1 807 a School of Medicine was chartered in Baltimore. Five years
later the charter was expanded to permit the addition of Faculties of Divinity,
Law, and Arts and Sciences under the name. University of Maryland.

The initial development at College Park began in 1856 as an agricultural col-
lege. Later this unit became the land-grant college of Maryland within the
terms of the Morrill Act of 1862. With the passage of time additional curric-
ulums and colleges were added.

In 1920 the two institutions were combined under a single Board of Regents
with University of Maryland being retained as the overall name.

In 1886 the Delaware Conference Academy was founded by the Methodist
Church in Princess Anne, Maryland. The institution was taken over by the State
of Maryland in 1926 and became a division of the University of Maryland in
1948. This unit, now called Maryland State College, is autonomous and has its
own president.

A new campus was opened at Catonsville, Maryland, in September, 1966.
This campus is a branch of the University, serving the Baltimore metropolitan
area. Since the location is in Baltimore County the campus is referred to as
University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).

Maryland State College and UMBC provide their own publications. For this
reason their curriculums, admission requirements and procedures, costs, and
other pertinent information are not presented in this catalog.

Maryland State College

Other resources of the University include the Computer Science Center, the
Agricultural Experiment Station, the University Hospital, the Psychiatric Insti-
tute, the Natural Resources Institute, and various institutes and bureaus.

The Libraries of the University of Maryland consist of the general Univer-
sity library (the Theodore R. McKeldin Library), the Engineering and Physical
Sciences Library, and the Chemistry Library at College Park; and the Health
Sciences Library and Law Library in Baltimore. The library collection has risen
to nearly one million volumes, and over 12,000 periodicals and newspapers are
received currently. In addition, the College Park libraries contain over 150,000
United States Government and United Nations Organization documents.

The University's Educational and Research Programs are enhanced by its
participation in the activities of the Southern Regional Education Board. The



An Adventure in Learning • 11

Southern Regional Education Board encourages arrangements between in-
stitutions whereby high cost educational programs are shared. For example,
during the past 15 years Maryland residents have been provided veterinary
medical training through a cooperative arrangement with the University of
Georgia and with the Tuskegee Institute. Medical and dental education arrange-
ments have been effected with Meharry Medical College. The University's
School of Dentistry, in a similar manner, provides for contract students from
certain states where schools of dentistry have not been established. A coopera-
tive program in Forestry has been arranged with North Carolina State. The
usual state participation involves paying the out-of-state fee and, in some in-
stances, program support as well.

Objectives of the University

Although the University is a state institution quite large in physical
plant, student enrollment, number of curriculums offered, and services per-
formed, its objectives remain constant and form a base for all educational ac-
tivity. Simply stated they are: (1) to prepare students in the arts, the humani-
ties, the basic and applied sciences, and the professional curriculums; (2) to
contribute to the civic, moral, cultural, spiritual, and general welfare; (3) to
provide general education in its broadest sense, both formal and informal, for
all students who enroll; and (4) to develop those ideals and finer relationships
among students which characterize cultured individuals; (5) to conduct systema-
tic research and to promote creative scholarship; and (6) to offer special, con-
tinuation, and extension education in communities where it is feasible to do so.



Undergraduate Admissions



Freshman Admission

Admission from secondary school is based upon evidence indicating the
applicant's probable success in the program of his choice. By the word "evi-
dence" the University means that:

1. The applicant's scholastic average in college preparatory subjects dur-
ing the last two years in high school has been satisfactory;

2. The applicant's high school principal has recommended him for
admission;

3. The applicant will have graduated from high school before his first
registration with the University;

4. The applicant has successfully completed the high school subjects re-
quired for the college and curriculum for which he is applying (the
recommended program for each applicant would include three or four
years of college preparatory mathematics);



12 • An Adventure in Learning

5. The applicant has completed the Scholastic Aptitude Test and has
requested that the results be submitted to the University. He should
take the SAT before the end of the Fall Semester preceding his enroll-
ment at the University in order to assure the completion of the process-
ing of his application. The applicant should apply in writing to the
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey 08540, to request
to take the test. In order to have the test results sent to the University
of Maryland at College Park, the applicant must indicate the College
Park Campus code number, 5814, in the proper places on the test.

Applicants for the September term who are found to meet admissions require-
ments may be sent an offer of admission, and they are then required to submit
the enrollment deposit of $50 within three weeks after the date of this oifer.
Failure to submit the enrollment deposit within the required time limit will be
taken as evidence that the applicant is not seriously interested in admission, and
the offer will be cancelled.

Refunds of the $50 enrollment deposit will be made, provided the request
for the refund is received by the Admissions Office on or before June 1, 1969.

Advanced Placement

Students entering the University from secondary school may obtain ad-
vanced placement and college credit on the basis of their performance on the
College Board Advanced Placement examinations. These examinations are norm-
ally given to eligible high school seniors during the May preceding matriculation
in college.

For achievement of a score of five or four on a given examination, the student
will be granted Advanced Placement and the credit equivalent of two semester
courses in that field; for achievement of a score of three. Advanced Placement
and the credit equivalent of either one or two semester courses, depending upon
the field of the examination, will be granted. A student earning this credit and
placement needs not do additional work in the subject unless his curriculum re-
quires it.

The program allows students a maximum of thirty hours credit, which may
be used to meet major, minor, or elective requirements; or, where appropriate,
General Education requirements. Included in the University's program are
Advanced Placement examinations in the following areas: biology, chemistry,
classics, English, history, Latin, mathematics, and physics.

Questions about the program may be addressed to the Director of Admis-
sions and Registrations, College Deans, or the Director of General Education.
For detailed information about examinations and procedures in taking them,
write to Director of Advanced Placement Program, College Entrance Examina-
tion Board, 475 Riverside Drive, New York, New York 10027.

Pre-College Summer Session

Any Maryland resident whose scholastic average in academic subjects for his
junior year in high school and the first semester of the senior high school year
falls below the "C" level will be required to attend the University Pre-College
Summer Session. If he completes successfully the Pre-College Summer Session,
he will be admitted to the Fall Semester as a fully qualified student.



An Adventure in Learning • 13

The Pre-College Summer Session is held at College Park, Maryland, and is
preceded by a brief orientation period. It is open only to Maryland residents.
During this session, which runs concurrently with the regular University sum-
mer session, students are required to take six academic hours, three of which
must be English 1. A special program of advisement and counseling as well as
reading and study skills instruction is provided. Alternatives to this special
session, and the achievement required to remain in the University, have been
explained to Maryland high school principals and counselors and are contained
in a special brochure sent to students required to attend the Pre-College Summer
Session.

A student whose average falls below "C" as noted above MUST HAVE HIS
APPLICATION AND HIGH SCHOOL RECORD INCLUDING HIS FIRST
SEMESTER SENIOR GRADES IN THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE AT COL-
LEGE PARK ON OR BEFORE MAY 1, 1969 TO BE CONSIDERED FOR
ADMISSION. The Scholastic Aptitude Test results for students with less than
a "C" average must be received by May 16, 1969.

Transfer Student Admission

An applicant must be in good standing as to scholarship and character to be
considered for admission. Applicants for transfer are required to have a mini-
mum cumulative average of "C" (2.0) in all previous college work.

Advanced standing is assigned to a transfer student from an accredited insti-
tution under the following conditions: (1) A minimum of one year of resident
work at the University of Maryland, or not less than 30 semester hours, (includ-
ing the meeting of all University and curricular requirements) is necessary for a
degree; (2) The University reserves the right to make the assignment of transfer
credit conditional upon the student's making a satisfactory record during his
first semester at the University; (3) The University reserves the right to revoke
advanced standing if the transfer student's progress is at any time unsatisfactory;
(4) The courses transferred are acceptable to the particular curriculum in which
the student matriculated and each course transferred carries a grade of "C" in
a grading scale with "A," "B," "C" and "D" as passing grades. The transfer
student may obtain a course catalog from the dean of the college in which he
will enroll.

The Special Student

An applicant who is twenty-one years of age and who has not completed the
subjects required for admission may be admitted to such courses as he seems
qualified to take. A special student is ineligible to matriculate for a degree until
he has satisfied the entrance requirements. A special student may also be one
who meets entrance requirements but who does not wish to pursue a program
of study leading to a degree.

The Foreign Student

The foreign student applying for admission to the undergraduate schools of
the University of Maryland should make application at least six months in
advance of the term for which he is applying. He will be required to submit an
application for admission on a form furnished upon request by the Admissions



14 • An Adventure in Learning

Office of the University, official copies of his secondary school preparation, cer-
tificates of completion of state secondary school examinations, and records of
college or university studies completed in schools in the United States or else-
where. He will also be required to furnish proof of adequate finances and of
his ability to read, write, speak, and understand English sufficiently well to pursue
satisfactorily an approved course of study in one of the colleges of the Univers-
ity. Arrangements can be made through the office of the Director of International
Education Services and Foreign Student Affairs for administering an English
test to prospective students both in the United States and in countries abroad.

The foreign student accepted for admission to the University will receive from
the Director of Foreign Student Affairs the appropriate immigration form
needed to secure a student visa from the American consul.

Every foreign student is expected to notify the Director of Foreign Student
Affairs as to the approximate date of his arrival at the University and arrange
to arrive in time for the special orientation program that precedes registration.
The office of the Adviser is located in the North Administration Building,
Room 222-A.

Application Procedures

Application forms may be obtained by writing to:

Director, Office of Admissions
North Administration Building
