1. Notwithstanding any other provision of this or any university publication, the university reserves the right to make changes in tuition, fees and other charges at any time such changes are deemed necessary by the University System of Maryland Board of Regents. Although changes in tuition, fees and charges ordinarily will be announced in advance, the university reserves the right to make such changes without prior announcement.

2. International students may experience higher living expenses. Effective Fall 2017, the University of Maryland (UMD) will charge a fee of $125 per semester for all newly enrolled, full time students who are neither U.S. citizens nor permanent residents. (Part time students will be assessed $62.50 per semester.)  UMD will use the revenue from this fee to enhance support for our international students, improved academic support, expanded assistance for students transitioning to the U.S. and international student-focused cultural events to foster an engaged, supportive community.

3. Only students who are pursuing a major in business, engineering and computer science will be charged additional tuition based on credit hours. Get additional information and a breakdown of these charges here.
