Tuition and fees are subject to change and annual increases.

MS students are charged on a per credit basis.

Any student coded as a non-resident will pay the out-of-state tuition rate for courses taken at College Park.

Study trips, study abroad and external agreements (Consortium, Inter-Institutional, etc.) classes are charged tuition based on the student’s residency classification.

Students enrolled in College Park courses, study trips, study abroad and external agreements (Consortium, Inter-Institutional, etc.) will pay applicable College Park fees.

Tuition Remission for Students Holding GA/TA Positions: 

Students holding graduate assistantship positions within the University should note that the practice of awarding 5 or 10 credits of tuition remission does not apply to the MBA/MS Programs. Due to differential tuition, MBA students receive a tuition credit that is valued at the prevailing standard in-state per credit rate of $683* .

In the Fall and Spring, students on 10-12 hour graduate assistantship positions will receive a tuition credit of approximately $3,415 per semester (5 x $683) and students on 20 hour GA positions will receive a tuition credit of $6,830 (10 x $683).

Graduate Assistants wishing to enroll in the winter will receive a tuition credit of $1,366 (2 x $683) if they hold a 10-12 hour position and $2,732 (4 x $683) if they hold a 20 hour position.

All Graduate Assistants will be classified as in-state for tuition purposes.

Fee waivers associated with tuition remission do not apply to Robert H. Smith School of Business fees.

*Rates may change for the next academic year.

The best way to avoid lump-sum payments and cover the gap between financial aid and the cost of education without resorting to additional borrowing from alternative sources is to enroll in the interest-free TERP Payment Plan.

By enrolling in this plan, you can spread your academic year payments over eight or ten months. The annual enrollment fee is $50 for the ten-month plan or $80 for the eight-month plan. You can include most university charges: tuition, fees, and parking permits. You can also arrange to have your monthly payments debited directly from your checking or savings account.

To enroll, complete the TERP Payment Plan worksheet, which will help you determine the amount you need to budget, then use the amounts from the worksheet to complete the enrollment form.

Financial Aid can be obtained in the form of student loans. Each form of aid has its own eligibility and application requirements.

The University of Maryland's Office of Financial Aid assists students with their financial aid concerns. Venesha Bridges, the Financial Aid Counselor liaison for Smith MBA students, can be reached by email at vbridges@umd.edu or by phone at 301-314-1338 for FAFSA specific questions. For general questions, please contact Samantha Hanssen, Program Coordinator, Financial Aid & Billing, by phone at 301-406-8613 or email at shanssen@rhsmith.umd.edu (link sends e-mail)
