UMD offers a variety of scholarships that are awarded based on academic achievement in the classroom. Although UMD is test-optional for admission, if you have taken a standardized test (ACT/SAT) we recommend submitting those scores to be considered for all scholarship opportunities. Standardized tests must be taken no later than December 31 (of your senior year) and official scores received by our office no later than February 1.
