Help Your Employees Take Advantage
of the OPM-UMUC Alliance

Federal Government Training Officers

Thanks to a new alliance with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), University of Maryland University College (UMUC) is now offering substantial savings* on undergraduate and graduate degree and certificate programs to all Federal employees. They'll save 25 percent on out-of-state tuition for most programs, and if they're new applicants, they'll save $50 when we waive their application fee.

If your employees qualify for in-state tuition or are active-duty military, they'll pay an even lower tuition rate.

Programs Not Available at Discounted Rate

The tuition discount will not be applied to the MBA, MS in Data Analytics, MS in Digital Forensics and Cyber Investigation, graduate cybersecurity degree and certificate programs, executive programs, and doctoral programs.

Your Role as a Federal Training Officer

Now more than ever you are now uniquely positioned to help your employees reach their educational goals, improve their work performance, and boost their career potential. We want to work with you to ensure you have everything you need to help your employees learn about the alliance and encourage them to take advantage of this unique opportunity. We can

  • Identify the right UMUC degree or certificate at the undergraduate or graduate level that aligns with your agency's needs

  • Help develop a communications plan to best reach your team

  • Provide outreach collateral

  • Conduct on-site and/or online events for your employees
