Office of Student Services
Undergraduate Student Services Office
The Office of Student Services offers undergraduate students comprehensive support from admission through graduation. Our advisors and support staff encourage students to engage in all aspects of university life starting from the moment they attend a student orientation session. Our goal is to provide students with the tools to maximize their experience at the university by teaching our students to value diversity, to collaborate with peers and instructors, and to foster intellectual curiosity and the capacity to achieve a well-rounded academic career. In addition to the classroom experience with our world-renowned faculty, we encourage students to take advantage of experiences outside of the classroom as well. Such opportunities include joining student organizations on campus and within the College of Education or participating in an international experience by studying abroad.
The College of Education offers multiple program areas of specialization and degree options, including combined 5-year Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs as well as double major and minor programs. Please review all of the information available to you and explore the possibility of joining the esteemed rank of Terp undergraduates in the College of Education.
