How To Register

There are multiple ways to register for classes:

The Schedule of Classes is available in the MyUMUC Student Portal. It provides course descriptions along with information about availability, prerequisites, dates, location, and formats. We strongly recommend you enlist the help of your advisor to select courses and register for your first term.

Active-duty servicemembers, military spouses, and veterans should contact Military Advising at 877-275-UMUC (8282) or military@umuc.edu. Veterans should contact Veterans Advising at 877-275-UMUC (8282) or veterans@umuc.edu.

The registration process and Schedule of Classes is not applicable to GoArmyEd students. Please refer to the GoArmyEd portal for your schedule of classes.

Registration

Enrolling via the GoArmyEd Portal

If you are an active-duty Army, Army National Guard, or Army Selective Reserve student receiving tuition assistance (TA) for your courses, you must register through the GoArmyEd Portal. UMUC will receive your registration directly from GoArmyEd on the next business day.

Please note that due to this process, your classes won't display in MyUMUC for 24 to 48 hours after UMUC receives your registration. Your classes will appear in WebTycho 24 to 48 hours after posting to MyUMUC.

Courses are available for registration in GoArmyEd 60 days prior to the course start date.

Registration

Drops, Withdrawals and Refunds

Dropping a class is defined as officially canceling registration for a course before or during UMUC's drop period. Withdrawing from class is defined as officially canceling registration for a course after the drop period has passed. See deadlines.

UMUC understands the demands of military deployments and the impact on students' academic success. Dropping and/or withdrawing from a course can have financial and academic implications that should be taken into consideration when making this decision.

Being proactive and maintaining open communication with your instructor when military assignments change is key. There may be other options available to help you complete your class.

Be sure to contact your UMUC military advisor prior to any course schedule changes. Also speak with your respective Education Office regarding any possible ramifications you may face due to tuition assistance or veterans benefits policies.

In order to receive a full refund of tuition and fees, all drop requests must be completed prior to the first day of classes. Please visit the UMUC Web site for more information on the withdrawal policy.

Drops, Withdrawals and Refunds — Army

Students who enrolled via GoArmyEd must withdraw from their classes through the GoArmyEd Portal. Please refer to UMUC's GoArmyEd refund schedule for further information.

Soldiers may request a Withdrawal for Military Reasons (WM) through GoArmyEd when events beyond your control prevent you from successful completion of the class. You must have prior approval from your Education Office.

Examples of valid reasons are:

  • Unanticipated mission related duties
  • Deployment
  • Emergency leave
  • Reassignment
  • Illness or hospitalization
  • Death of a family member, etc.

Your commander will verify what constitutes a valid request for a Withdrawal for Military Reasons. When you submit your request for a WM, you will be required to upload a signed "Request for TA Recoupment Waiver—Withdrawal for Military Reasons" form to the eFile tab in your GoArmyEd account.

Providing false information to receive a waiver may be subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice or other punitive actions.

Registration

Drops, Withdrawals and Refunds—Veterans

If you are using veterans benefits and have made changes to your original class schedule, please log into MyUMUC to adjust your VA Certification form.

Under Academics, in the drop-down menu, select Adjust My Certification, then select your enrollment term.

Please make sure you have consulted an advisor before dropping or withdrawing from a course. These changes may create an overpayment or affect your eligibility for veterans benefits.

If you are dropping a course, you do not need to adjust your VA certification form. Dropped courses are automatically reported.

Registration

Disenrollment

Payment for courses is due at the time of course registration. If payment is not received, students risk being disenrolled from classes.

Students who are active-duty servicemembers, receiving the military tuition rate, and using tuition assistance are exempt from disenrollment. Tuition assistance forms must be received prior to the last day of class or the student will be responsible for the balance.

For students using veterans benefits, payment may be due at the time of registration. Students using Chapter 31 and Chapter 33 benefits do not need to pay for their classes up front; their tuition is paid directly to UMUC from the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA). For all other chapters, payment is made by DVA to the student directly. These students must arrange payment to UMUC at the time of registration.
