Natural Disaster Response Information

The University of Maryland University College community is made up of students and faculty from all parts of the country and the world. Should you be unable to continue in an online course, or if you are facing financial difficulties because of a natural disaster, we have programs in place to help.

In the aftermath of a natural disaster, such as a hurricane, the university may institute programs and scholarships to assist affected students at UMUC and other institutions. In such an event, you can find the most recent information and resource links by visiting this page.

Please refer to the information below as a general guide or view the Frequently Asked Questions.
