Students who register for courses incur a financial obligation (tuition and fees) to the University. UMD’s Student Financial Services generates electronic bills and sends monthly e-bills to the email address on record. Students are encouraged to regularly verify the accuracy of their e-billing address. A paper bill is not sent.
Students are responsible for viewing their billing statements, accessing the current account balance, and determining the payment due date at View Your Monthly Bill. A paper bill is not sent. If there are questions, contact Student Financial Services.

Terp Payment Plan
- This service permits students to make monthly payments in manageable monthly installments over the course of the semester (Fall or Spring). TTP may NOT be used for Summer Session OR Winter Session. See Terp Payment Plan.
All students who register for courses incur a financial obligation to the University. Failure to make payment by the specified due date will result in a late fee or finance charge and may jeopardize the student's ability to register for the upcoming semester or term. Payment in full must be received before the close of business on the due date to avoid a late fee. In the event the account is not settled by the due date, 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.
Students are responsible for viewing their billing statements, accessing the current account balance, and determining the payment due date at View Your Monthly Bill. If there are questions, contact the Student Financial Services.
While the University reserves the right to limit enrollment for financially delinquent students, a student’s registration will not be automatically canceled or withdrawn for non-payment of tuition and fees. Failure to attend class does not result in automatic cancellation. 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.
Debts incurred during each semester must be satisfied before 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.
