Fee Type
Undergraduate Application

The application is a non-refundable fee for establishing your permanent record, the official university document from which transcripts are issued. Payment should be made through the MyUMUC portal the first time the eApplication is completed.

GoArmyEd students, who complete a Common Application in the GoArmyEd portal, should pay the fee through MyUMUC before the course begins. This fee is not required if you are a consortium student unless you declare an intent to pursue a certificate or degree through UMUC Europe.

Graduate Application

The application is a non-refundable fee if you apply for a graduate program with UMUC Europe. The application fee must accompany the online application for graduate admission (eApplication) available through MyUMUC.

GoArmyEd students, who complete a Common Application in the GoArmyEd portal, should pay the fee through MyUMUC before the course begins.

Returned Check

Students will incur a charge for any check returned unpaid by a bank. A student who stops payment on a check for tuition is neither disenrolled nor relieved of responsibility for paying tuition and fees.

Examination to Establish Credit
Current Tuition Rate per Credit

This fee is charged for each credit that the student seeks to establish through UMUC course-challenge examinations and UMUC Europe foreign language examinations. The fee should accompany the application for examination.

The fee for ordering an academic transcript issued by UMUC is $10, except those sent to an alliance school.

Rush Official Transcript

A special handling fee is charged for transcripts processed and mailed or faxed within 24 business hours.

Certificate/ Graduation Application

Cap and Gown

Each graduate who plans to attend commencement is responsible for purchasing their own cap and gown.

Field Study
3 Credit-Hour Course + Fees

The tuition for a field study course is the same as any three credit-hour course. Additionally, a student may be charged a hotel accommodation fee depending on the specific course. Students who cancel the course after the registration deadline will be charged a $100 cancellation fee. The cancellation fee may be waived for those students who must cancel due to official, duty-related reasons.

UMUC Stateside and UMUC Asia Campus Fees and Activity

Charges incurred from UMUC Stateside or UMUC Asia campuses will be reflected on the student's financial account along with any UMUC Europe charges. The student may direct all financial account inquiries to the UMUC Europe Business Office only if they are officially listed as a UMUC Europe student at the time of registration.

Textbook Fees

Students may purchase UMUC Europe textbooks online and at the local field site. If textbook payments are not made by credit card via the online textbook ordering system, charges will be posted to the student financial account. If third party funds cover the cost of a textbook and an authorized tuition assistance form is submitted, UMUC Europe will invoice the paying organization. As with tuition charges, textbook charges are the responsibility of the student if financial assistance is denied by the organization or payment is not received by UMUC Europe in a reasonable period of time.


UMUC offers a variety of convenient ways to pay for your education-related expenses. We also provide you with a wealth of resources to programs such as scholarships and government-assisted education benefits, so that you can comfortably pursue your educational goals.

To assist you with financing your education, UMUC accepts several payment options, including:

  • Online credit card payments (Visa, Mastercard, or Discover)
  • Paper checks and money orders
  • Military or employer provided TA (third party payments)
  • UMUC Europe employee, spouse, and dependent children TA (ROF)
  • Scholarship awards, federal grants, federal and private loans
  • Monthly payment plans

Making a Payment in MyUMUC

You can easily pay your account balance online anytime by using your Visa, Mastercard, or Discover credit card. To do so, please follow these steps.

Please keep in mind if you have not made payment arrangements within 10 days from the date the charge was incurred, you will receive an automatic invoice and services will be denied until payment arrangements are made.

Paying by Check or Money Order

If you prefer to make check or money order payments, please mail the payment directly to the UMUC Europe Business Office. Make all checks and money orders payable to University of Maryland University College Europe.

Military or Employer Provided Tuition Assistance

If financing your education with military or civilian TA (known as a third party payment), please provide verification to the UMUC field representative in your local education center. If your TA is pending, contact your local field representative or the Business Office to explain the circumstances.

Tuition assistance documents are typically written forms issued by a third party that guarantee payment. Military and civilian TA forms should be completed and signed by the appropriate authorizing official.

If you are using military TA, you must provide the field representative at your local education center a copy of the TA form. Army students must register for courses through the GoArmyEd portal; GoArmyEd automates the third party payment process.

Air Force students do not need to submit TA forms; however, Air Force students must verify that TA is digitally signed and approved within the AI Portal for UMUC Europe to retrieve electronically.

Financial Aid and VA

You may also qualify for Veterans Affairs (VA) education benefits and other forms of financial assistance. Scholarship awards and other third party documents must include the financier's name, billing address, and amount awarded.


Students who incur debts to UMUC during a particular session must clear all unpaid balances to be permitted to register for the next session. Requests for services including transcripts and diplomas will be denied until all debts have been paid. Outstanding debts are collected against any refunds due the student. However, due to the timing of certain transactions, it is important for students to verify their account balance even when a refund is issued. UMUC Europe students inquiring about a debt or wanting to make payment may contact the Business Office.
