UMGC offers a variety of convenient ways to pay for your education-related expenses. We also provide you with a wealth of resources to programs such as scholarships and government-assisted education benefits, so that you can comfortably pursue your educational goals.
To assist you with financing your education, UMGC accepts several payment options, including:
- Online credit card payments (Visa, Mastercard, or Discover)
- Paper checks and money orders
- Military or employer provided TA (third party payments)
- UMGC Europe employee, spouse, and dependent children TA (ROF)
- Scholarship awards, federal grants, federal and private loans
- Monthly payment plans
Making a Payment in MyUMGC
You can easily pay your account balance online anytime by using your Visa, Mastercard, or Discover credit card.
When a transaction occurs on your student account, you will receive an invoice. Your invoice will be sent to the email address on file, but you can always review your account and pay your balance online 24 hours a day, seven days a week through MyUMGC.
Paying by Check or Money Order
If you prefer to make check or money order payments, please mail the payment directly to the UMGC Europe Business Office. Make all checks and money orders payable to University of Maryland Global Campus Europe.
Military or Employer Provided Tuition Assistance
If financing your education with military or civilian TA (known as a third party payment), please provide verification to the UMGC program coordinator in your local UMGC office. If TA is pending, you should contact the Third Party Office to explain the circumstances via firstname.lastname@example.org for military students or email@example.com for non-military students.
Tuition assistance documents are typically written forms issued by a third party agency that guarantees payment. Military and civilian TA forms should be completed and signed by the appropriate authorizing official. You may submit forms and inquiries to the Third Party Office.
Army students who have registered through the GoArmyEd portal do not need to submit TA forms, as GoArmyEd automates the third party payment process.
If you are an active duty Air Force student, you do not need to submit TA forms; however, you must verify that TA is digitally signed and approved within the AI Portal for UMGC to retrieve electronically.
Financial Aid and VA
You may also qualify for Veterans Affairs (VA) education benefits and other forms of financial assistance. Scholarship awards and other third party documents must include the financier's name, billing address, and amount awarded.
Indebtedness to the University
If you incur debts to UMGC, you must clear them to be permitted to register. Requests for services (including transcripts and diplomas) are denied until all debts have been paid. Outstanding debts are collected against refunds due to you. After a reasonable period of time, uncollected debts are forwarded to the Central Collection Unit of the State Attorney General’s Office.
If you fail to pay charges incurred with UMGC, UMGC has the authority to deem your account delinquent and transfer it to the State of Maryland Central Collection Unit (SCCU). UMGC has also received authorization from the Board of Regents to charge students’ delinquent accounts a 17 percent collection fee and/or all attorney or court costs incurred by the university. Once a past-due balance with UMGC has been transferred to the State Central Collection Unit, your information is reported to a credit bureau.
You can contact SCCU at +1-800-705-3493 or +1-410-767-1220.
Note: Mail should be addressed to the attention of Student Accounts. When a balance is unpaid and 90 days past due, the debt is forwarded to the State Central Collection Unit (SCCU) of the State Attorney General's Office (of the State of Maryland), which may report the debt to major credit reporting entities. A 17 percent fee will be assessed by the State of Maryland for all debts submitted to SCCU. Once a debt is sent to SCCU, payment must be made directly to SCCU. Students can contact SCCU at +1-800-705-3493 or +1-410-767-1220, or https://www.paybill.com/payccu/.
We thank you for choosing UMGC and look forward to assisting you throughout the duration of your education.
