Tuition and Fees


Students who register for a course in these programs are assessed tuition and mandatory fees. Post-Baccalaureate Programs use the semester academic calendar. The academic year runs from fall semester through the following Summer Session.

  • Undergraduate Student Campus Fees, Mandatory: Assessed based on the total number of registered credits each fall or spring semester for any course held on campus, even if only for one class meeting. For a breakdown of fees, see Student Financial Services - Tuition and Fees.
  • Summer Campus Services Fee, Mandatory: Flat rate charged for any course registration that requires students to come to campus, even if only for one class meeting. Assessed for each six-week session. Supports university resources that include transportation, student union, recreation, and registration services.
  • Summer Distance Learning Fee, Mandatory: Flat rate charged for any course registration that does not require students to come to campus (e.g., internships, courses offered completely online). Assessed for each six-week session. Supports university resources and registration services.

In addition to tuition, some courses charge an additional fee—lab, studio, or materials. Course fees should be noted on Testudo. The fee will post to the student account as a separate charge.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this or any other University publication, the University reserves the right to make changes in tuition, fees, and other charges at any time such changes are deemed necessary by the University and the University System of Maryland Board of Regents. Although changes in tuition, fees, and charges ordinarily will be announced in advance, the University reserves the right to make such changes without prior announcement.
