The Terp Payment Plan (TPP) at the University of Maryland allows you to spread your educational expenses in monthly installments over the semester. Additional plan details are available at billpay.umd.edu/TPP.

Often, students' employers will help cover the cost of education. When a private or government agency is paying any portion of your tuition and fees directly to the university and they are requesting a bill, students will utilize Third Party Sponsored Billing located within the Office of Student Financial Services and Cashiering.

There is no standard form. Some companies will write a letter, on business letterhead, stating what they are willing to pay. Others have a special form. Regardless of the format, all contracts or letters MUST include the following information in order to be processed:

  • Student's name
  • Student's account number (University ID)
  • Specific charges and semesters the sponsor will pay
  • Billing address required
  • Name, signature and contact information of person authorizing the contract
  • Purchase order and contact information of person authorizing the contract
  • Purchase order number (for government contracts)

All documentation will need to be submitted to their office by email at thirdpartybilling@umd.edu(link sends e-mail) or by fax at (301) 314-7067.

*Information as outlined by the Office of Student Financial Services and Cashiering.

Monthly Billing Statements are generated at the end of each month by the Office of Student Financial Services and Cashiering. This statement will show the status of your student account on the date in which your statement is generated. Students should utilize the "Student Account Inquiry" screen in Testudo to receive a live view of their bill. The Student Account Inquiry screen is a useful tool that allows students to view their account balance, especially when in between billing cycles.

Many students utilize employer benefits to help fund their education. Often employers require students to provide additional information to have their courses approved for reimbursement. Students can submit a copy of their Billing StatementUnofficial Transcript or Certification of Enrollment with Course Schedule, and tuition information. If you would like to provide your employer with additional information, the Student Template can be used as a guide in explaining this process.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is provided to graduate students in the form of federal loans. Students who plan on using financial aid to help cover the costs of their education will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each October 1st.

Each form of aid has its own eligibility and application requirements. It is extremely important that incoming students investigate the details of their financial aid requirements early to avoid any missed deadlines. Please check each type of aid for specific dates.

The University of Maryland's Office of Financial Aid assists Smith MBA students with their financial aid concerns.
