Boost your career potential with an affordable degree from a leader in online education.

If you're a DC Government employee, or the spouse or legal dependent of an employee, you can take advantage of several education benefits thanks to an alliance with University of Maryland Global Campus, a leader in online education for working adults. Save 25 percent on out-of-state tuition for most UMGC programs and get your $50 application fee waived when you apply as a new student.

Tuition Discount Details

The out-of-state tuition discount applies to more than 75 degrees, certificates, and specializations at UMGC, with only a few programs excluded.* This does not apply to in-state (Maryland) residents or military servicemembers, but if you qualify for either of those categories, you will pay a lower tuition rate anyway.

* This discount will be applied to out-of-state tuition for eligible students in most programs. This discount cannot be combined with certain scholarships or discount programs, including the Maryland Completion Scholarship and the Military New Graduate Student Savings Program. Discounted tuition rates may not fall below the standard in-state rate or any special tuition rate offered to eligible activity-duty military servicemembers, their spouses, or dependents.

The tuition discount will not be applied to the following graduate programs and related courses: Master of Business Administration; Master of Science in data analytics; Master of Science in digital forensics and cyber investigation; Master of Science in cybersecurity management and policy; Master of Science in cybersecurity technology; graduate certificates in cybersecurity management and policy, cybersecurity technology, and foundations in business analytics; all doctoral programs; and select legacy programs.

Additional discounts may be available for Federal employees and their spouses and eligible dependents. Undergraduate and standard graduate program tuition for students who meet the criteria for Maryland residency will be the applicable in-state rate. Tuition for active-duty military; members of the Selected Reserves, National Guard, and the Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; and the spouses and dependents of these student groups will be the applicable military or specialty rate. If you are a student using Post 9/11 benefits, please contact an advisor at 800-939-8682 to determine if you can apply both benefits.
