Refund Disbursement

Find out how to receive your tuition refund, including how to set up direct deposit.

Refunds are processed in the same manner in which you originally paid at University of Maryland Global Campus.

If you paid your balance with a credit card and are now due a refund, the funds will be returned to your credit card. Credit card refunds are processed weekly.

UMGC also offers direct deposit for tuition and Financial Aid refunds, so you can sign up to have your refunds deposited directly into your checking or savings account.

If you do not sign up for direct deposit in MyUMGC, a refund check will be mailed to your address on file with UMGC. Make sure that your address is current by reviewing your Profile in MyUMGC and updating your personal information. This will ensure timely delivery of your refund. Refund checks are made payable to the student and are mailed from the Maryland Comptroller's office.

Financial aid refunds are processed once your aid has been authorized for disbursement by the Office of Financial Aid at UMGC. If you have met all eligibility requirements for each fund type and your aid is not reflected on your student account in a disbursed status, you should e-mail the Office of Financial Aid to check the status.

Please note: Financial aid credit balance refunds are subject to review by UMGC. Eligible refunds will be processed in accordance with Title IV regulations.
