Consumer Disclosures and Policies

In an effort to help prospective and current students make the most informed decision about choosing higher education and in keeping with federal and state regulations, UMGC compiled information on consumer information and policies into a list of links for easy reference.

Nondiscrimination Statement

Privacy Policy

UMGC's privacy policy covers topics including cookies, data security, and how to opt out of targeted advertising and e-mails.

The privacy policy also covers how the university handles personally identifiable information, commonly known as PII.
