Payment Policy

Upon enrollment, you incur a financial obligation to UMD.  Payment by the above deadlines is required. Payment policy does not follow the standard University fall/spring semester plan. Post-Baccalaureate Programs payment due dates are determined by the date of a student's initial registration. You are not billed. If payment is not submitted, you may be canceled and blocked from future registration. If the course is full, you may lose your seat.  No reminder is provided.

While the University reserves the right to cancel and limit enrollment for financially delinquent students, your registration may not be automatically canceled for non-payment of tuition and fees. In addition, failure to attend class does not result in automatic cancellation. It is the student's responsibility to avoid academic and/or financial consequences by canceling their registration prior to the first day of classes.

Students Canceled Before Schedule Adjustment: Students canceled for non-payment at any time before Schedule Adjustment ends for a given semester will be blocked from future registration. Notification is sent via the e-mail of record. If the course is full, the seat is lost. To re-register, pre-payment is required. The re-registration process may take up to 48 business hours to complete after pre-payment has been submitted.

Students Withdrawn After Schedule Adjustment: Students withdrawn for non-payment after Schedule Adjustment for a given semester lose course access immediately. Notification is sent via the e-mail of record. To re-register, pre-payment is required. In addition, the course instructor is required to send an e-mail supporting the re-registration request. The re-registration process may take up to 48 business hours to complete after pre-payment has been submitted. If a student does not re-register, a notation of withdrawal from the term and the effective date will post to the students official University transcript and leaves a partial or full balance due for tuition and fees depending on the date of withdrawal. To appeal for the removal of the withdrawal, an Exception to Policy must be submitted.
