Financing Your Education

Tuition & Fees

Students attending UMBC’s academic programs offered at The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) receive the same quality education that they would if attending our main campus. Therefore, students also pay the same tuition. However, because the facilities and services available to students differ between the two locations, students attending USG have a different fee structure than our main campus.

In order to estimate your educational expenses for the upcoming year, please refer to our UMBC cost calculator, an interactive tool specifically designed to meet the needs of each student in determining out-of-pocket expenses.
