In order to join ACES, you must confirm your enrollment. When you confirm your enrollment to the University of Maryland by May 1 you will be automatically confirmed for enrollment in ACES.
ACES students are required to live in Prince Frederick Hall for their freshman and sophomore year. In order to confirm your place in Prince Frederick, you must apply for housing by May 1. Missing the May 1 deadline may impact your ability to secure on-campus housing and participate in the ACES LLP.
During the months of January through May, ACES hosts a number of online chats. During these chats, ACES staff and students provide insight into ACES classes and community atmosphere while answering any questions prospective students may have.
