University of Maryland Recognized as Top University for International Students

In a new listing out this year by U.S. News and World Report, the University of Maryland has been named one of the top schools in the country for international students. 

Beginning with the national universities included in its Best Colleges ranking, where UMD is listed at No. 61 nationally, U.S. News reviewed 16 different criteria together for the first time to determine which schools have had proven success supporting the needs of international students through graduation. Criteria factors include a special international student orientation, international student organizations, need based and merit aid for international students and several others. 

At the University of Maryland, International Student & Scholar Services exists to assist international students with transitioning to the U.S., advising on immigration requirements, and making the most of their academic experience at UMD. Designated advisors, an international spouses organization and international coffee hour gatherings also contribute to the university’s commitment to international students.
