When to Pay: Deadlines

The payment deadlines below (semester or term) shows the payment due date as related to registration. Upon registration, tuition and fees post to the student account. If you register early and not do submit payment within 30 days of registration, UMD’s Student Financial Services may assess finance charges. For fall semester only: if you register early, DO NOT submit payment until after July 15. Tuition and fees do not post to the student account until after this date. This is a Student Financial Services system issue.

  • If you are depending on alternative payment—loans, Terp Payment Plan, Third Party Billing—to cover the costs of this program, send an email to with such information so that a note is placed on your student account. The email must be received prior to the payment due date.

Payment Policy

Post-Baccalaureate Programs payment due dates are determined by the date of a student's initial registration and do not follow UMD’s Student Financial Services standard plan. Payment by the posted deadlines is required. Students are not billed. Students are responsible for checking their student account to ensure that full payment has posted. If there is a prior balance and you do not submit payment for this balance, UMD’s Student Financial Services may use your payment to cover this prior balance. 

Should full payment not post, students may be canceled or withdrawn and blocked from future registration. Students may lose their seat if the course is full. Notification of this requirement is sent to the email of record following any add/drop activity. Check your spam folder. No additional reminder is provided. Update your email of record.

While the University reserves the right to cancel or withdraw and limit enrollment for financially delinquent students, your registration may not be automatically canceled or withdrawn for non-payment of tuition and fees. Failure to attend class does not result in automatic cancellation. In addition, non-payment cannot be used as a means for dropping a course or canceling registration. Students are ultimately responsible for officially dropping a course, canceling registration, or withdrawing by the posted deadlines to avoid academic and/or financial consequences.

Consequences for Non-Payment

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 email 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.

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 email of record. To re-register, pre-payment is required. In addition, the course instructor is required to send an email 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, submit an Exception to Policy
