Office of Extended Studies

Prospective Students Students walking in front of the fountain in McKeldin Mall


Starting in Summer 2021, prospective students will apply to Office of Extended Studies (OES) programs and Institute of Applied Agriculture (IAA) using the newly developed application supported by Salesforce. Staff will also review and provide decisions on program applications in the new system.

Project Goals & Impact

The goal of the project is to leverage one system—TerpEngage— for the Office of Extended Studies’ program enrollment process for current and prospective students. Students can complete and submit their application and receive decision notifications from the University faster in a single platform. 

University staff and faculty can reduce time on triage and reviews, create administrative notes in the system, and communicate with students in a single environment. In addition, the system will connect with the current advising communications tool, which will allow faculty and staff to support students throughout their engagement with UMD.
