Scholarships

The Office of Summer & Winter Programs awards a limited number of full and partial scholarships to UMBC degree-seeking students who have a high GPA and are close to graduating. Financial need (determined by the 2016/2017 FAFSA) and the percentage of courses taken at UMBC are also considered.

Full scholarships awards

Full scholarships cover tuition up to 4 credits for ONE summer session course, based on UMBC’s in-state undergraduate or graduate tuition rate.

Undergraduate Courses Graduate Courses
4 credit course:  $1,364 4 credit course:  $2,412
3 credit course:  $1,023 3 credit course:  $1,809
2 credit course:  $682 2 credit course:  $1,206
1.5 credit course:  $512 1.5 credit  course:  $905
1 credit course:  $341 1 credit course:  $603

If you are registered for MORE than one UMBC summer session course, the scholarship will be applied to the ONE course carrying the most credits, and you will be responsible for the tuition and fees related to other course(s) that you are enrolled in. For example, if you are registered for TWO 3 credit courses and a 1.5 credit course, the scholarship will ONLY cover the cost of tuition for ONE of the 3 credit courses.

Partial scholarship awards

Partial scholarships cover HALF of up to 4 credits of the tuition for ONE summer session course, based on UMBC’s in-state undergraduate or graduate tuition rate.
