No Financial Aid Disbursements the Week of November 20

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, there will be no financial aid disbursements the week of November 20. Disbursements will resume as normal on Tuesday, November 29.

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid

Be sure to apply for Federal financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, also known as FAFSA.

When you apply, please enter school code 011644 to ensure University of Maryland University College receives your FAFSA information.

We also encourage you to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, which streamlines the FAFSA process by enabling you to transfer your tax information directly into your application for aid. You can access the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA website.

Book Voucher Update

Please be advised that many UMUC courses will not require you to purchase materials. Please check your class syllabi for information specific to your courses. Book voucher requests cannot be canceled. If you request a book voucher and only use a portion of the funds, UMUC must wait until the end of the semester to reconcile your account and refund the unused funds to you.
