After You Are Admitted
Creating Your Directory ID and Password
Student IDs may be used by students to withdraw books from libraries, ride the UM Shuttle buses, gain admission to most athletic, social, and cultural events, as a UMD prepaid debit card for food establishments and printing services and as a general form of identification on campus. Student IDs are available in the Mitchell Building. To obtain an ID, you must be registered for classes and you must have proof of identity, such as a valid driver’s license or passport. Questions concerning the identification system should be directed to the Office of the Registrar: (301) 314-8240.
If you have not done so already, turn in the required immunization records to the University Health Center. You can find the required form here: http://www.health.umd.edu/clinicalservices/allergimmuntravel/immunizations. If you have any questions regarding immunization, please call (301) 314-8114.
