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.

What Students Are Saying

3.17 Average Rating
WOW, you get so much bang for your buck! I'm learning more than my friends who went to a local community college, but for less money! The price, generally for 12 credits, per semester is just over $3,000, and including books it is usually under $4,000. I have the option to take my classes online or at any of the associated University of Maryland locations... Meaning, if I signed up for a Biology class, I could take the course at College Park -- but not have to pay the big bucks! AMAZING.

The cost of a UMUC education is quite reasonable. Also, UMUC has an abundance of ways to help gain financial aid through scholarships, grants, and loans.

Some classes like German class is great and really worth it since you only buy one book, which comes with a lab-book and workbook, and you use the books for all four classes no extra expenses. Also with every great class there are terrible ones, such as a weekend classes where you only met four times and have to buy an expensive book witch you will never use again.

Best education for your money.
Joseph from Northfield, MN
Definitely bang for the buck. I currently pay out of state tuition, but do not mind because the programs that University of Maryland - Univeristy College offers are hardly found with the same quality anywhere else.
Marina from Turlock, CA
It is very cost efficient because tuition includes books and lab fees.
Michelle from laurel, MD
Tuition is not expensive in comparison to most other colleges. UMUC is also very involved with the US military and aids in the financial areas accordingly.
