Step 2Step Two

Tuition & Fees-Related Forms

  • FAFSA—To receive financial aid, work study and/or scholarships, you must complete this application. The priority deadline for the 2021-2022 application is March 1, 2021. The school strongly recommends that all students complete the FAFSA (required to accept scholarship awards, be eligible for work-study funds, etc.).

  • Tuition Classification Form (In-State Residency)‌—All admitted students are classified as “out-of- state” for tuition and fees.  To qualify for “in-state” status students must submit the In-State Classification form. This form should be submitted no later than August 31, 2021. Submit Forms to registrar@umaryland.edu, Fax—410-706-4053, or mail them to: Office of the Registrar, 601 W. Lombard Street, Ste. 240, Baltimore, MD 21201.
  • Health Insurance Waiver—Students who do not wish to retain the Student Health Plan must file a waiver each academic year to have the charge removed from their tuition bill. This form verifies an alternate insurance policy (and waives automatic enrollment in the University-sponsored program). For more information regarding the waiver form, please contact Gallagher at: 1-814-288-4916. Students who do not complete a waiver form will be enrolled in the University plan and cannot receive a refund.
