Summer Session Payment Policy

Summer Session payment policy requires full payment in accordance to the posted Summer Session Payment Deadlines. Students are responsible for checking their student account to ensure that full payment has posted. If your account has a prior balance, the University's Student Financial Services will use the Summer Session payment to cover it. This prior balance may include charges relating to financial fees, parking, the Libraries, University Health Center, etc.

Students are responsible for officially dropping a course, canceling registration, or withdrawing by the posted Summer Session Payment Deadlines to avoid academic and/or financial consequences.

How to Pay

Students who register on or after March 21:

Payment Options

Credit/Debit Card or Online Check

Financial Aid & Alternative Payment

Financial Aid

  • Contact the Office of Student Financial Aid for assistance. 
  • In general, financial aid for Summer Session is limited. Students must be enrolled in a degree-seeking program of study at UMD and must register for at least 6 credits or 24 graduate units to be considered. Summer Session aid is not available for visiting students. A visiting student should contact their home institution. UMD students who are offered Summer Session financial aid must respond to the offer and formally accept. The offer does not automatically post and you may be canceled non-payment. 

Veteran/Military Benefits

Tuition Remission

  • Tuition remission does not cover mandatory student services or other fees. Fee payment is due by the Summer Session posted payment deadlines. UMD System employees must receive authorization from their home institution. UMCP employees work with their department’s human resources staff. See UMCP UHR Tuition Remission

Third Party/Sponsored Billing

Athletic Scholarship

  • Athletes who receive an Athletic Scholarship must be in touch with his/her Athletic Advisor to determine award amount and posting date.

Terp Payment Plan

  • Not available for Summer Session.

529/College Savings Plans

  • 529/College Savings Plans do not qualify for alternative payment exemption because of the delay in which the 529 plan posts to the student’s account. You may still contact your plan to arrange for payment. Once the 529 plan posts to the student account, you may request a refund.  

Consequences for Non-Payment

Students who register for courses incur a financial obligation to the University.  On a monthly basis, Student Financial Services will assess the account with a late payment fee of $10 or 5% of the unpaid balance, whichever is higher. Each month thereafter, a finance charge of 1.5% is assessed to the outstanding balance until the account is paid in full. If there are questions, contact Student Financial Services. The University reserves the right to cancel and limit enrollment for financially delinquent students.

  • Debts incurred during a semester or term must be satisfied before further registration will be permitted. A registration block may be placed on the student account, preventing registration for an upcoming semester or term until all financial obligations are settled, including current fees, parking violations, library fines, medical charges, and other miscellaneous charges. In addition, UMD will deny requests for transcripts or diplomas pending clearance of all debts.
  • Delinquent accounts will be referred to the State of Maryland's Central Collection Unit (CCU). Accounts placed with CCU will be reported to the credit bureau. CCU will assess a minimum collection charge of 17% of the outstanding debt, plus attorney and court fees, if applicable. UMD and CCU reserve the right to make changes in fees and other charges as may be deemed necessary. These fees are the student’s responsibility.
