Required Fees

Application Fee

There is a one-time $50 non-refundable application fee. You can pay this fee electronically within the application platform.

Matriculation Fee

A Matriculation fee (charged only to new students) supports the new student orientation program, Success Seminars, retention and degree completion program, the graduation clearance process and Commencement ceremony. This fee will be split into two even charges between the student’s first two semesters at UMBC.

Regalia Fee

Students who participate in the commencement ceremony will pay the costs to rent regalia. The current cost for master’s regalia rental is $75 and for the new specialty Ph.D. regalia rental is $150. This process is in line with other area universities.

Withdrawal and Refunds

The first $200 of tuition is non-refundable for all classes in the online MS program as this covers the cost of books, materials, delivery of these materials, and administrative expenses. As a result, any refunds will be based upon the tuition paid minus $200. However, if a student drops a course prior to the start of the semester, and the textbook is returned, the $200 non-refundable fee will be reversed.

Please refer to the Student Business Services Website for refund schedules, payment options and other important information.

Financial Aid

This program is qualified for Federal and State financial aid. Please visit UMBC’s Office of Financial aid and Scholarships for more information.

*USM employees please note: Employees of University System of Maryland (USM) and its constituent institutions are eligible for tuition remission to the Online Information Systems Master’s Program. USM employees who take advantage of tuition remission will be responsible for the above fees and purchasing their own books/instructional materials.
