Upcoming Events


Greetings! The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) Student Success Center (SSC) would like to extend a warm welcome to you as you begin your first CSM academic school year. The College is ecstatic that you have chosen to become a member of our community and we are fully committed to ensuring that you are wholly prepared to be successful in your CSM college career.

The next step in this process is attending CSM’s Kickoff to College!


The Kickoff to College (KOTC) gives new and transfer students a vital opportunity to learn about CSM. KOTC is designed to empower students with the knowledge and tools needed in order to begin your courses at CSM. Through KOTC, you will come to understand faculty expectations and college policies, have the chance to ask important questions, sign up for classes, join student organizations, get to know the campus, staff, faculty, and administration, and find out what it takes to be successful in college.

At KOTC, you will also be able to access your registration information and my.CSMD account, meet, and network with CSM students, become familiar with CSM resources, eat, have fun, AND get some awesome CSM gear! Sessions for parents, siblings, and guests run concurrently with the program for students.

KOTC takes place at the La Plata, Leonardtown, and Prince Frederick campuses on various days and times. The dates, locations and how to RSVP are below!
