At UMGC, you can manage your education expenses by paying tuition over the course of several months, rather than in one lump sum. This way, you can make manageable monthly payments and there are absolutely no interest charges. You just pay a $35 nonrefundable enrollment fee per semester.
Benefits of Using UMGC's Interest-Free Monthly Payment Plan
- Convenient customer service: You'll have 24/7 access to customer care straight from knowledgeable UMGC staff.
- Real-time posting of enrollments and payments: No more processing delays! Your payment plan enrollment and transactions will post immediately on your student account.
- No convenience fees: If you or an authorized user makes a payment, you won't be charged a single cent extra in "convenience fees" typically administered by third-party vendors.
- Smart balance calculation: Our new payment plan will automatically adjust based on increases and decreases to your balance for the same term, so you'll always know your balance, how much your next payment is, and when it's due.
- User-friendly interface: You'll be able to manage your payment plan from the student account center. You'll use the same username and password you use to access the MyUMGC, and if you're already signed into MyUMGC or your e-mail, you won't have to re-enter your username or password to access the student account center.

Keep in mind your plan must be paid in full before the last date of classes for the term in which you are enrolled, or you will not be able to enroll in future terms.
