Tuition

The University System of Maryland Tuition Policy, approved by the Board of Regents on June 11, 1993, established non-resident tuition at the calculated actual educational cost at each institution within the system and based the increase in the non-resident tuition and fees on that cost. Additionally, the policy recommends that each institution provide a four-year plan of tuition and fees for both resident and non-Maryland resident students. The two charts—Maryland resident and non-Maryland resident—shown below, provide the projected, per term rates for fall 2016 through fall 2019.

The tuition and fee increases for the next three years are based on fall 2016 rates. They do not include increases related to inflation and other cost factors not known at this time.

The tuition policy is available for review in the following offices:

  • All academic departments
  • Office of the Bursar
  • English Language Center
  • International Student and Scholar Office
  • Office of the Registrar
