Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

U.M.E.S is affordable for those people who can not afford college.
DENEEN from Washington, DC

Cherise from Fort Washington, MD
They provided me with eight hundred fifty dollars in pell grants. The rest of the money that I'm using to pay for school is out of loans.
Charles from Princess Anne, MD
It may be a dig in the pockets but at the same time it has a lot to offer. This school is an HBCU to of course it's going to offer and be there as much as possible for all the African American students, even for those who are not. Don't forget about all the scholarships, FAFSA, loans and grants because there is some money out there to put in towards your tuition or just even your books.
Meggan from Chesapeake, VA
For the amount of money I'm spending compared to the the quality of education I'm getting and the number of activities that are available on campus for me, I am definitely getting my moneys worth.
Jordan from Toms River, NJ
Though we do like to have fun, our school is very big on giving back to the community. When you go on our website there is always something posted about a charity event we would be having and they always give you instructions on how to volunteer.
Chantel from Greenbelt, MD
UMES Is Priced Really Well If You Dont Have The Money To Pay For College. And The College Experience Is Worth The Money You Are Paying. The Teachers Are Also Really Good And They Do Their Job Very Well.
Porsche from Bowie, MD
If you have financial aid issues, the financial aid office is always willing to lend a hand. Do not hesitate to ask someone in any department for help. This university is quite affordable and there are scholarship opportunities, so if you find yourself in a bind ask for help.
