Suspension of TA does not mean your education has to be put on hold. Whether you are a current student or about to apply to UMUC, there are other ways to pay for school.

1. Apply for Federal Student Aid by filling out the 2012–2013 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by April 1, 2013, and follow our financial aid checklist to determine eligibility. 

2. Use your VA Benefits. The Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) offers a number of education benefits programs for veterans and active-duty servicemembers.

3. Enroll in UMUC’s monthly payment plan and pay your tuition over the course of several months or the full semester. There are no finance charges, just a low enrollment fee. The plan is administered by Sallie Mae

4. Apply for scholarships. UMUC offers more than 50 unique scholarships, some exclusively for military servicemembers, veterans, and their families.
