Registering for classes questions
My son is going to orientation on June 20 and 21 at UMD. He completed the math placement test online already.
Are there any other placement tests he needs to take prior?
I know he will be registering for classes however he will not have is most current AP scores till July. It will be 3 exams including Calc BC, English Lit, and Macroeconomics. He is confident that he did well on these exams but he will not have the scores to prove he can register for more advanced classes. What is your recommendations for him regarding this?
Secondly, here in NY there are some great resources for students to share their favorite classes and professors which in turn helps incoming students choose those classes/profs when the register for the first time. Does this resource exist for UMD? My son will be an Aerospace Engineering major in Gemstone Honors so we were hoping to have a general idea of what to register for his first semester. He is coming in with 11 APS with scores of 4's and 5's so we know that will help him skip some gen ed requirements. Thanks for any insight you can provide!
