Monthly Payment Plan

UMGC offers a variety of payment plans and schedules to give you financial flexibility by allowing you to spread out payment for tuition and fees over several months. You will be able to make several smaller, more manageable monthly payments rather than writing "one big check"-and there are absolutely no interest charges. You just pay a small non-refundable, application fee to enroll in the plan.

How to Get Started

  1. Log into MyUMGC.
  2. Select Finances.
  3. Select Student Account Center.
  4. Select the Payment Plans tab at the top of the new page.
  5. Next, select “Enroll Now” and follow the prompts to continue your payment plan enrollment.
  6. Make monthly payments according to your selected plan.
