The University of Maryland. Founded in 1807 at the site of the present Baltimore Campus with the establish­ment of the nation's fifth College of Medicine, the school soon added colleges of dentistry, pharmacy and law. A half-century later, the College Park Campus, the University's largest and one of the largest in the nation, began. The University of Maryland consists of five divisions: • The University of Maryland, College Park, which offers over 110 under­graduate majors and 73 graduate programs. • The University of Maryland, Baltimore County, which emphasizes under­graduate education and selected graduate programs. • The University of Maryland, Eastern Shore, with programs in liberal arts, pre-professional and graduate education. • The University of Maryland at Baltimore, which concentrates on profes­sional and graduate education. • The University of Maryland University College, which emphasizes continu­ing education programs and offers courses throughout the State of Mary­land, through its Asian Division, and through the European Division. The Munich Campus is part of the European Division. Accreditation The University of Maryland University College is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. 5 The Munich Campus The University of Maryland Munich Campus was established in 1950 as a resi­dential, coeducational and full-time college for family members of U.S. military and Department of Defense personnel living in Europe. A few dozen students, most of whom had graduated from U.S. military high schools in Europe, walked through the doors of The University of Maryland Munich Campus in October 1950. Today, some 18,000 students later, the Munich Campus student body consists of 650 young men and women enrolled in 155 classes, ranging from anthropology to zoology. It is the only residential school of its kind in the American military system. Not a community college, not a junior college, the Munich Campus is uniquely an integral part of a major state university system which offers the first two years of that university's curriculum in liberal arts, sciences and business. The Munich Campus has structured its program to meet the following objectives: 1. to provide a traditional American freshman and sophomore curriculum which is flexible enough to meet the needs of students who will transfer to other colleges or universities as well as the students who will seek employ­ment in the working world. 2. to promote an understanding of the European setting. 3. to accommodate and build upon the international background and experi­ence of its student body. The two-year program awards the Associate in Arts degree in General Studies and in Management. Visitors to the Munich Campus are often amazed at the school's resources: fully­equipped laboratories, generous library facilities, residence halls, study suites and a location in one of the most attractiv'3 cities in the world. The Munich Campus faculty, half of whom hold the doctorate, are on a par with faculty of esteemed four-year colleges. With a small college environment, average class size of 22, qualified faculty and personalized attention, the Munich Campus offers an experience which pro­motes the true spirit of education: a balanced, positive development of the best human powers, whether individual, social or intellectual. 6 UNIVERSITY OF MARYL NO The City of M1.1nich Munich is Bavaria's capital and the third largest city in Germany -a city with more castles, concert halls, art galleries, museums and libraries than you can possibly visit in two years. The Olympic Park offers students a giant playground for swimming, skating and sports events. The Olympia Hall is where the most famous pop stars, bands and entertainers regularly perform. Munich is only a short drive away from some of the world's best skiing. The metropolitan area covers 310 square kilometers with more than 1.3 million inhabitants. Over 90,000 college students make Munich the leading German university town. Munich Campus is located in southwest Munich on McGraw Kaserne. The climate is diverse and unpredictable. Winters can be cold, with heavy snowfall. April often brings brilliant warm days while in early May, one fre­quently sees the return of cold weather. It is therefore advisable that you bring sufficient seasonal clothing with you. The German monetary unit is the mark (DM) which is divided into 100 pfennigs. Coins are issued in the denominations L 2, 5, 10 and 50 pfennigs, and L 2 and 5 marks; there are 5, 10,20,50 and 100 mark bills. You can change money at any bank, travel bureau or railway station. The conversion rate is listed daily in the Stars and Stripes. 1£ you arrive in Munich by train, a taxi to McGraw Kaserne costs approximately 15 marks. A taxi from the airport costs between 20 and 25 marks. Most taxi drivers speak English and they all know where McGraw Kaserne is located. 8 Admission Eligibility for USAREUR Logistical Support In addition to meeting the academic requirements for admission given below, all applicants must be entitled to USAREUR logistical support while attending the Munich Campus. Members of the U.S. Armed Forces, American employees of the U.S. Government and their family members are normally entitled to USAR­EUR logistical support. Eligibility for USAREUR support facilities is governed by USAREUR regulations and agreements with the German government. Students whose sponsors are stationed outside of Germany are not eligible to use the Commissary or the Post Exchange. Academic Requirements for Admission In general the Munich Campus requires freshman applicants to earn a high school diploma prior to their first registration at the University. Applicants should see that their final high school transcripts are sent to the Office of Admissions prior to enrolling. All admissions are contingent upon satisfactory completion of current work. • Freshman Admission a) The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is required of all freshman appli­cants. b) A cumulative grade-point average will be calculated based on the academic courses completed in grades 9 through 11 of high school. Mid­year senior grades may also be requested if necessary and used in calculation of the academic grade point average. c) Freshman applicants must meet one of the following combinations of high school grade-point average and SAT scores: 9 Applicants are strongly advised to meet the following course requirements: In addition, students are encouraged to take at least two years of a foreign language. • Transfer Student Admission Applicants who have attempted twelve or more semester hours of college­level work are defined as transfer students. Transfer students with a mini­mum C average (2.00 on a 4.00 scale) at their institution will be eligible for admission. In cases where there is more than one previous institution, the average of all institutions attended will be cumulative. • Part-Time Student Admission Students enrolling for fewer than nine semester hours are defined as part­time Special Students. Applicants in this category are not required to sub­mit transcripts at the time of registration. If part-time Special Students wish to change their status at a later date to either full-time status or to degree­seeking status, they must submit official high school and college transcripts and meet the admission requirements in effect at that time. • Auditors Applicants who do not wish to receive credit or grades for courses may be admitted as Auditors. Auditors pay the same tuition and fees as those taking the courses for credit. Applicants in this category are not required to submit high school or college transcripts. 10 • Special Admission Situations 1. Admission on the Basis of General Education Development Test (GED) Applicants who are at least 16 years of age will be considered for admission by presenting the high school General Education Devel­opment Test with a total standard score of 225 (no score below 40 on any of the five tests) or a minimum score of 45 on each test. 2. Concurrent Enrollment of High School Senior High school seniors may enroll at the Munich Campus if the following provisions are met: a. Achievement of a B+ average or better in academic subjects com­pleted through the junior year. b. Permission of the high school with the understanding that the credits earned in college courses will not be accepted to satisfy high school graduation requirements. c. The enrollment will be limited to seven semester hours each semes­ter. d. The enrollment will be limited to courses which are widely acknowl­edged by colleges to be freshman year courses. High school seniors are admihed as part-time special students. If such students wish to continue at the Munich Campus after high school graduation, they must apply and meet the freshman admission require­ments in effect at that time. 3. The University recognizes that there are many talented and capable students with the potential to complete academic programs successfully but who do not meet the admission requirements. A certain number of applicants who can support their request for special consideration may be admitted on a Provisional Admission Status. Experience has demon­strated that, when such students are highly motivated and willing to use the full range of support services available, they are able to achieve academic goals. (See College Work Study Skills, Counseling Center.) Applicants for a Provisional Admission Status may present the relevant information in a letter accompanying the Application for Admission or they may request an interview in the Admissions Office. 4. Readmission Former students who have interrupted their attendance at the Munich Campus for one or more semesters must apply for readmission by submitting an Application for Admission. 11 • Failure to Qualify for Admission Applicants who have been denied admission to the Munich Campus may take courses with The University of Maryland's European Division, which offers courses at Army and Air Force bases throughout the European Com­mand. After completion of at least 12 semester hours with a minimum overall C average, students may be reconsidered for admission at the Munich Campus. Application Procedure 1. Submit an Application for Admission with the $20 application fee. The Application for Admission may be obtained from the Munich Campus Ad­missions Office, from DODDS high schools or from local Armed Forces Education Centers. The application fee is non-refundable. Applicants who have previously attended any branch of The University of Maryland are not required to pay the application fee. Payment must be made by check or money order payable to The University of Maryland, Munich Campus. 2. Submit an official high school transcript and official transcripts from any colleges or universities previously attended. Only official transcripts, those which have been sent by the issuing institutions directly to the Munich Campus Admissions Office, will be considered as a basis of admission. 3. Freshman students must submit the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). Test results may be submitted directly to Munich Campus by the Educational Testing Service by indicating Code Number 0988 on the testing registration form. Applicants are encouraged to take the Preliminary Scholastic Apti­tude Test (PSAT) during their junior year in high school and the SAT early in their senior year. Application Dates Although applications will be accepted through the last date of registration, applicants are encouraged to apply at least four to six months in advance of a semester in order to ensure space in the residence halls. It is recommended that high school students apply early in their senior year. An admission decision will be made upon receipt of an Application for Admission, the SAT scores and the high school transcript. Applicants who do not meet the minimum combinations of grade-point averages and SAT scores may be ad­vised to resubmit their high school transcript after the seventh or eighth semester grades have been recorded. 12 Additional Information Complete information about the Munich Campus can be obtained by calling or writing the Office of Admissions.

Such visits are offered each weekday by appointment when classes are in session. • "Saturday Morning on Campus" Programs Each semester, the Office of Admissions invites visitors to the Munich Cam­pus to meet with students, faculty and staff.
