Fee Type
Undergraduate Application

The application is a non-refundable fee for establishing your permanent record, the official university document from which transcripts are issued. Payment should be made through MyUMGC the first time the eApplication is completed.

GoArmyEd students, who complete a Common Application in the GoArmyEd portal, should pay the fee through MyUMGC before the course begins. This fee is not required if you are a consortium student unless you declare an intent to pursue a certificate or degree through UMGC Asia.

Graduate Application

The application is a non-refundable fee if you apply for a graduate program with UMGC Asia. The application fee must accompany the online application for graduate admission (eApplication) available through MyUMGC.

GoArmyEd students, who complete a Common Application in the GoArmyEd portal, should pay the fee through MyUMGC before the course begins.

Returned Check

Students will incur a charge for any check returned unpaid by a bank. A student who stops payment on a check for tuition is neither disenrolled nor relieved of responsibility for paying tuition and fees.

Examination to Establish Credit
Current Tuition Rate per Credit

This fee is charged for each credit that the student seeks to establish through UMGC course-challenge examinations and UMGC Asia foreign language examinations. The fee should accompany the application for examination.

Official Transcript

The fee for ordering an academic transcript issued by UMGC is $10, except those sent to an alliance school. More information on transcript fees can be found at: Outgoing Transcripts

Certificate/ Graduation Application

For each certificate and graduation application filed, students are assessed an application fee.

Cap and Gown

Each graduate who plans to attend commencement is responsible for purchasing their own cap and gown. 

Please visit this year's commencement page for more information on ordering.

Field Study
3 Credit-Hour Course + Fees

The tuition for a field study course is the same as any three credit-hour course. Additionally, a student may be charged a hotel accommodation fee depending on the specific course. Students who cancel the course after the registration deadline will be charged a $100 cancellation fee. The cancellation fee may be waived for those students who must cancel due to official, duty-related reasons.

UMGC Stateside and UMGC Europe Campus Fees and Activity

Charges incurred from UMGC Stateside or UMGC Europe campuses will be reflected on the student's financial account along with any UMGC Asia charges. The student may direct all financial account inquiries to the UMGC Asia Business Office only if they are officially listed as a UMGC Asia student at the time of registration.

Grace Periods and Payment Deadlines for Overseas Registration and Residency

Payment of tuition* is due by the start date of each class (with no grace period).  
*Tuition is due for an Overseas Class or Tuition and Technology Fees, if applicable, for a Stateside Class.

If you do not have an approved Overseas Residency, your payment is due within 5 days of your registration.

All other charges, including Application and Diploma Fees, are due the same day as the charge is incurred.
