Some students may qualify for student loans, graduate assistantships or Veteran's benefits. For more information on graduate tuition and fees, click here.

Financial Aid, Loans, Fellowships, and Veterans Affairs

If you are applying for Financial Aid, to qualify, you MUST apply and be admitted as a Certificate or Master's candidate. If you miss the deadline for either program, you must wait until the next deadline to apply.

The Office of Financial Aid maintains and coordinates a variety of scholarships, grants, loans, student employment opportunities and veteran's benefits. Students wishing to be considered for financial aid resources must complete and submit a "Free Application for Federal Student Aid" (FAFSA) to the U.S. Department of Education (listing UMBC's Federal School Code: 002105). The FAFSA may be completed on the web at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/.

Information about federally subsidized and unsubsidized loans, the federal work-study program and other forms of need-based assistance is available from the UMBC Office of Financial Aid.

Graduate Assistantships

The Graduate School has graduate assistantships available to qualified, full-time, degree-seeking students. The financial support - stipend, tuition remission, and benefits - is part of the University's commitment to the success of our graduate students.

Graduate assistantships or scholarships are not available through the ISD program.

Detailed information about assistantships and their responsibilities, benefits and stipend levels is available in the Graduate Assistant Handbook.
