If you have a past due balance, you may be disenrolled from one or all of your University of Maryland University College course(s). Some exceptions may apply to financial aid recipients and military students.

The disenrollment process will begin approximately four weeks prior to the start of the semester and will run daily through the last day to enroll within that semester.

Read below UMUC's guidelines for payment and penalties as well as how to officially withdraw from a class.

  • Payment is due at the time of registration; however, there is a 5-day grace period to pay tuition and technology fees upon registration.

  • Students with past due balances may be disenrolled.  Please note that nonpayment does not drop you from a course.

  • If you have decided not to participate in the course for which you have enrolled, please follow the steps outlined in UMUC's Withdrawal Policy.

  • If payment has not been received by the due date, you may be prevented from incurring additional charges including, but not limited to, additional registration and transcript or diploma requests.

Financial Aid Students

As a financial aid student, you are excluded from disenrollment if you meet all of the following criteria:

  • Have satisfied all prior semester balances exceeding $250

  • Have submitted all requested documents within 15 days of the request from the Financial Aid Office. Students can view all missing documents through the MyUMUC student portal and selecting appropriate aid year. In MyUMUC, click

    • MyToDO

    • View My Financial Aid

  • Review and accept the awards needed for the awarded period within 15 days

  • Complete the Master Promissory Note and/or Entrance Counseling within 15 days, where applicable

  • Have undisbursed aid for the semester that covers the balance in full

If you meet all of the criteria listed above, UMUC will exclude you from disenrollment.

To drop a class, it is important for you to follow UMUC's Withdrawal Policy. We will not disenroll students who have been identified as financial aid applicants.

Make sure that you complete/submit all required documentation in a timely fashion to ensure the disbursement of your financial aid and stay up to date on your financial aid status in MyUMUC.

Military Students

Once UMUC confirms your status as an active duty military student, UMUC will exclude you from disenrollment. To drop a class, it is important for you to follow UMUC's Withdrawal Policy.

To ensure UMUC receives your military tuition assistance form, please submit your tuition assistance documents at the time of registration and always prior to the start of your class. If you fail to submit your tuition assistance documents in a timely manner, UMUC will not allow you to enroll in future semesters.

For more information about completing and submitting your tuition assistance documents, please see military and veterans benefits.
