This UMGC Online Student Handbook is intended to serve as a general guide for current and prospective University of Maryland Global Campus students. In this capacity, it includes information about UMGC and links to several policies students may need to access throughout their association with UMGC. This handbook is designed to be used in conjunction with the Undergraduate Catalog and Undergraduate Schedule of Classes, and/or the Graduate Catalog and the Graduate Schedule of Classes.

Please note that this handbook and its provisions do not constitute a contract between UMGC and any party or parties. Reasonable effort is used to ensure the factual accuracy of the information; however, this handbook is not a complete statement of all policies, procedures, rules, regulations, and academic requirements. UMGC reserves the right to make changes and additions to the information in this handbook without prior notice. When a curriculum or graduation requirement is changed, it is not made retroactive unless the change is to the students' advantage and can be accommodated within the span of years normally required for graduation.

The current UMGC Online Student Handbook is a work-in-progress. Please check back frequently for changes and updates.
