Like most universities today, UMD is getting more and more expensive. When you break down the tuition rates to the cost-per-class, you see that each class period you have is about $100 or so dollars. The education you receive, plus all the extra help and resources that are there for your benefit, is definitely worth the cost. There are tutoring programs, extra help sessions, and office hours that are free for students to take advantage of.
In addition to the cost-effectiveness of UMD's academics, there are a great deal of amenities available for students to use, like the gyms (Eppley and Ritchie Colosseum), the libraries, and sporting events (free for UMD students!). As long as you utilize the resources available, you can definitely say UMD is money well-spent.
