Using Testudo for Registration

Testudo is the University of Maryland's portal for class registration. By selecting your classes through Testudo, you also enter yourself into the University system. You'll need this registration to, among other things, receive your Student ID.

Before registering, you must have permission from your advisor or college, a Student ID number, and a PIN number.

MyUM portal

The university also offers an online portal, MyUM, which combines multiple university services into one location. Using the MyUM portal students can:

  • Access detailed class information via Testudo and schedule events through an online calendar
  • Obtain human resources information, such as timesheets and paystubs, for those students employed on campus
  • Link to various student life services – student organizations, recreation activities, housing, dining options and more
  • Add connections (portals) to other university services that students regularly access
