Explanation of Tuition & Fees

Program Tuition

  • Tuition is charged at the per-credit Maryland in-state rate for any student admitted into a Post-Baccalaureate Program. There is no “flat rate.” Program students may not use program course sections for inclusion in determining “full-time status.”
  • Program students who register for non-program courses are charged tuition based on their residency classification. Residency determinations are made according to the Board of Regents Policy on Student Residency Classification.

Campus Mandatory Fees (Undergraduate Student Services Fees)

  • Fall or Spring (16-Week) Semesters: Assessed to students based on the number of registered credits for a given semester for courses held on campus. The fee is refunded in accordance with the refund schedule upon cancellation or withdrawal. See Undergraduate Tuition and Fees for further information.
  • Summer Session (I or II):  Assessed one-time for course registration within each of the two six-week summer sessions (I or II) and for any course registration that requires a student to come to the UMD campus. The fee is refunded in accordance with the refund schedule upon cancellation or withdrawal. See Summer Session Tuition and Fees for further information.

Other UMD Fees

  • Course Fees: In addition to tuition, some courses charge an additional fee—lab, studio, or materials. Course fees should be noted on Testudo and may run $40 to $60 per course. The fee will post to the student account as a separate charge.
  • Late Registration Fee: $20.00. Charged to any student who registers for their first class on or after the first day of the semester/term.
