Fiscal Policy

Tuition and fees are due in full on the first day of classes. Students who have registered in advance should receive bills three weeks before the due date. Students must call Student Accounting at 6-2930 if they have not received a bill before the start of the semester or session.

Mail or make payments to the Cashier’s Office, Administration Building, third floor. Make checks payable to the “University of Maryland.” The university accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express as forms of payment.

If payments are postmarked or remitted in person after the due date, students are subject to a $100 late payment fee or 5 percent of the balance due, whichever is less. Students must pay all previous semester or session debts before they may register for a new semester or session or request services, such as transcripts and diplomas.
