Cost of Attendance
Cost of Attendance (COA) represents an estimate of the maximum costs a student might expect based on tuition and fees, housing, transportation, books and materials, miscellaneous living expenses, and loan fees (as applicable). Please refer to the UMBC Financial Aid and Scholarships Cost of Attendance for more information.
Departmental aid is not available through this program. Since this program is designed primarily for working professionals, graduate assistantships are limited. Students are eligible to apply for non-research based graduate assistantships offered through other academic departments. However, graduate students, if eligible can apply for federal aid and support. For the most detailed information on financial aid for prospective graduate students, refer to Financial Aid and Scholarships.
