The College of Southern Maryland is committed to providing equal opportunity in student admissions without regard to gender, sexual orientation, race, age, color, religion, disability, marital status, or national origin.

Congratulations! Now that you've been accepted to CSM and taken your placement tests, you are ready to take your first steps toward completing your academic goal.
Your first step is to attend an Orientation and Registration Session. At this session, you will begin to develop your academic plan, discuss placement test results, select courses, and plan your schedule with an enrollment advisor. During this session, you will be introduced to college resources and myCSMD.edu, the college's online portal. CSM strongly recommends that all students consult with an academic advisor prior to registering for classes.
Just before the start of your first semester, join the fun at Kickoff to College where you will fill up your success tool kit to "start" college the "smart" way: network with other students, meet faculty, tour the campus, learn about CSM clubs, and more! Ready to get started!?
If you plan to take a continuing education (credit-free) class you can simply fill out the continuing education registration form. For more information about credit-free courses, please visit the Courses & Training section of the site.
