Information for Parents & Family
Welcome parents of prospective, new and current UMBC students! We strongly encourage our students to be proactively
involved in the financial aid process that affects them; however, we understand that parents sometimes require specific
information about their students' financial aid in order to assist them with college expenses. To this end, the following
will assist parents in making the financial aid process a little easier.
Accessing Student Records
Parents who need information about their student's financial aid package, will be given this information if an
Authorization to Disclose Information form is on file. It is the student's responsibility
to submit this form, listing the names of anyone authorized to receive the student's financial information. Parents can
call our office to receive information and representatives will be happy to assist. Parents who prefer to use e-mail must
contact us through the student's myUMBC account.
Estimating Out-of-pocket Expenses
Parents can estimate their students' out-of-pocket expenses by comparing the financial aid award package to estimated
tuition, fee, room and board charges which can be found under the Cost tab.
