Payments: How long does it take to process a payment?

Payments are accepted by credit card, check, money order, and electronic debits from your checking or savings account. UMUC tuition and fees are due in full three (3) weeks prior to the start of class (unless you are enrolled in our interest-free monthly payment plan or receiving financial aid or employer tuition assistance). How to make a payment
