Note that the Office of the Bursar does not cancel your classes or your registration due to nonpayment.
Failure to Attend UB after Registering for Classes
Should you decide not to attend UB after registering, it is your responsibility to officially withdraw from the class or classes by submitting a written request to the Office of the University Registrar or doing so online through MyUB. Failure to withdraw will result in you being charged in full for the semester and in receiving a grade of "F" for the class(es).
Dropping from Full Time to Part Time
If you are a full-time undergraduate student who registers for 12 or more credits or a full-time law student registered for 13 or more credits, you will be charged the appropriate resident or nonresident full-time tuition. If you then drop to less than full time after the first week of classes, there will be no reduction of charges from full-time tuition to part-time tuition.
Tuition and Late Payment Policies
- Graduate students taking undergraduate courses will be charged at the graduate tuition level.
- Undergraduate students taking graduate courses will be charged at the undergraduate tuition level.
- Advanced-degree students (graduate, doctoral, law or LL.M.) taking course(s) outside their program will be charged the tuition of the primary program of study.
- Students who register to audit a class are charged the same tuition and fees as if it were a graded course.
- Students who are not paid in full by the payment due date for the term will be subject to a $75.00 late payment fee.
The University accepts payment by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, Bee Card Campus Cash, cash and check. All checks must be made out for the exact amount and made payable to the University of Baltimore. Two-party and post-dated checks are not accepted.
The online, interest-free tuition payment plan is administered by partnered with Higher One. There is a $35 enrollment fee for this service. Payments can be made by electronic funds transfer or credit card, and credit card payments will be assessed a convenience fee based on the amount of the monthly payments. These payments can only be made through the Tuition Payment Plan website.
This tuition payment plan is administered by Higher One. For more information about these services, call Higher One at 800.635.0120 or visit the Tuition Payment Plan website.
Returned Checks or Stopped Electronic Funds Transfer Payments
Stopping payment on a check does not constitute an official withdrawal from the University; however, your class schedule may be administratively rescinded. Your University account will be assessed a $50 fee for every check or online electronic funds transfer payment that does not clear the bank for any reason.
Please bring or fax a third-party billing authorization form (available through the employer/organization paying your bill) to the Office of the Bursar no later than the payment due date for the term so we can bill your employer/organization. Please note that until the payment is received in full, your account will be treated as your account. This means that if the payment is not paid by the date service indicators are being placed, your account will be subject to receiving a service indicator, which will prevent future registration and transcripts and/or degrees release, and your account will be subject to all collection activity, including being forwarded to the Maryland Central Collection Unit.
Students eligible for tuition waivers include:
- USM employees, their spouses and dependents
- senior citizens (law classes not eligible)
- graduate assistants
- Maryland National Guard (law classes not eligible)
All students receiving tuition waivers must have submitted their waivers and their total fee payment to the Office of the Bursar by the established payment date for the term.
Students with outstanding balances from prior semesters will not be allowed to register for the current term. Students with outstanding balances will not be allowed to receive University services, including course changes, transcripts or diplomas, until the balance owed to the University of Baltimore is paid in full.
Any outstanding balance with a service indicator must be paid with a certified check, credit card or cash for the service indicator to be removed immediately and the student to be eligible for all University services. If you submit a noncertified check via the mail, through electronic funds transfer or in person to pay for an outstanding balance, you will have a 10-business-day hold placed on your student account before University services are restored in full, so the check has time to clear.
Students who are not paid in full by the payment due date for the term may be subject to a $75 late-payment fee.
Should your account become delinquent, the account will be sent to the Maryland Central Collection Unit, at which time a 17 percent collection fee will be imposed. Also, please note that the collection unit will intercept Maryland income tax refunds of individuals indebted to state colleges and universities for tuition, fees and other costs. The unit may also report the debt to a credit bureau.
