Military New Graduate Student
Savings Program

Eligible students can save 30 percent per credit toward a graduate program.

Active-duty military students, reserves, and their spouses and dependents may be eligible for the Military New Graduate Student Savings Program at University of Maryland Global Campus. Eligible students can save 30 percent—or $144—per credit on most master’s degrees and graduate certificates* when they enroll as a new graduate student at UMGC and qualify for the military tuition rate.

In order to receive these savings, students must enroll for their first term of credit-bearing graduate coursework between April 25 and October 4, 2022 for the Summer 2022 or Fall 2022 terms.
