Military Tuition Rate Eligibility

Save money through reduced tuition for active-duty servicemembers, spouses, and dependent children.

University of Maryland Global Campus offers reduced tuition rates for most programs for active-duty servicemembers, eligible spouses, and dependent children. Our detailed tuition page can help you find your exact costs.  

To receive the reduced military tuition rate, you must submit documentation to verify your eligibility in accordance with the procedures for receiving the military tuition rate within 30 days of the date that you submitted your application for admission to UMGC. To learn more about the required documentation, please review our steps to apply for military and veteran students.

If you do not submit sufficient documentation by the deadline, your tuition rate will be changed to the out-of-state rate, unless you have submitted the Residency Questionnaire in your student portal and qualify for in-state tuition, in which case your tuition rate will be changed to the in-state rate.
