    If you look at the â??best buyâ?? colleges online, youâ??ll surely find UMD as one of them. In-state tuition is very affordable as far as college goes at $24,352. If you donâ??t live in Maryland, youâ??ll be paying about $44,045 a year. Although this is definitely a lot, the price tag is not as high as several other colleges with a reputation as good as Marylandâ??s that can run up into the 50 and 60 thousands per year. Whatâ??s unique about Maryland compared to some other universities is that students are admitted into all Big 10 sports games, even the big football matches, for free. In other schools, you can be paying anywhere between $20-$150 for a student ticket. One thing that all UMD students know that we donâ??t have to pay for either is school gear. After only one semester at Maryland, I have received over ten free Maryland t-shirts. As long as you keep your dining points on track, there is little youâ??ll have to pay for on campus while at UMD.

    UMD is such a steal, especially if you're paying in-state tuition. The price is so low for in-state tuition, and it's not bad for out of state as well, but you're also getting a world-class education.

    Overall, the experience is great, and while it is expensive, you are getting your money's worth if you make the best of your experience and don't loose focus on your studies.

    If you're paying in state tuition, you're getting your moneys worth. There are a lot of out of state-ers here and they are paying more than twice I am for the same degree.
