If you're a Federal employee or are the spouse or legal dependent of a Federal employee, you can save 25 percent* on out-of-state tuition for most programs at University of Maryland University College (UMUC) thanks to our alliance with the Office of Personnel Management.
Plus, if you're a new applicant, you'll save $50 when we waive your application fee. The discount applies to more than 80 of our undergraduate and graduate degrees and certificates**, with just a few exclusions. Available programs cover a wide range of in-demand disciplines such as business, information technology, health care, public safety, and more. Plus, you can complete almost any UMUC program entirely online.
If you qualify for in-state tuition or are active-duty military you'll pay an even lower tuition rate. If you are a student using Post 9-11 benefits, please contact an advisor at 800-939-UMUC to determine how this discount may impact your benefits.
