HireSmith accounts may ONLY be created for current students and alumni who have a Smith major, or students currently in the QUEST program. (This excludes business minors and exchange students, Non-Smith UMD alumni in the QUEST program, and students in online specialty masters programs.)
You will need to use your UMD Directory ID and password, the same as Testudo or Canvas, to login. If you try to log in to HireSmith but receive a “Single Sign-On” or SSO error, it is because you don’t have an account in the system.
If your Directory password has expired, reset it by visiting identity.umd.edu and select “Set Passphrase”. Call campus DivIT at 301-405-1500 if you need assistance.
If you are recently admitted and tried to login to HireSmith, you may receive a Single Sign-On Error.
As an incoming student, your account will be created between the time that you register for classes and the time your classes begin, usually 1-2 weeks before the class starts. If you still do not have access after your first week of classes, please email email@example.com with your UID, academic program, start term, and graduation term.
All current Smith School students have a HireSmith account. You must be registered to access HireSmith.
If you have registered for classes (and paid tuition) but still receive a Single Sign-On error saying “a user with SSO ID ‘###’ could not be found” after your first week of classes, please fill out this form or contact the OCS Tech Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have access issue with Terpmail account or to set/reset password, visit terpmail.umd.edu.
All Smith alumni retain access to HireSmith for life.
If you have an account but cannot login, you may need to reset your Directory password by visiting identity.umd.edu and select “Set Passphrase”.
