Student Admissions, Outcomes, and Other Data

FINAL UMBC To Post c-26d

Although individual paths may vary, in many cases, students take 23 credits their first year and 26 credits their second year. Under such a path of study, cost of the credits in excess of 20 each year (3 and 6 in this
example) would be paid for by the student. Current rates of tuition as of 2016 are $603 in-state; all GAs are automatically granted in-state rates. University fees are not covered and must be paid for by the student. At present (2016), these total $130 per credit. As an example, a typical first-year student receiving in-state tuition, taking 23 credits should expect to receive a stipend of $17,250 and to pay $4,799 (3 x $603 credits of tuition = $1809 + 23 x $130 fees per credit = $2,990). Students typically take 20credits or less in their 3rd year and beyond. Please note, these are just estimates based on 2016 and subject to change.
