Financial Aid

  • In general, financial aid for Winter Session is limited. Students must be enrolled in a degree-seeking program of study at UMD and must register for at least 3 credits or 12 graduate units to be considered. Winter Session aid is not available for visiting students. A visiting student should contact their home institution. UMD degree-seeking students who are offered Winter Session financial aid must respond to the offer and formally accept. The offer will not automatically post.
  • The Office of Extended Studies (OES) is pleased to offer a grant for UMD degree-seeking undergraduate students who register for Winter Session course sections beginning with 01**, WB1*, and I1**. The grant is designed to provide need-based aid to students who otherwise could not afford to register for Winter Session courses. Awardees are determined by the Office of Student Financial Aid. Students must demonstrate need, have a minimum 2.0 GPA, and must enroll in at least 3 credits in courses using the abovementioned section codes. Priority is given to seniors and juniors. While Financial Aid makes all aid determinations, degree-seeking UMD undergraduates who believe they have extenuating circumstances may contact winter@umd.edu with additional information. Please note: funds are limited.
