The University of Baltimore continues to actively monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. With safety as a priority and based on guidance from state and local officials, the Division of Enrollment Management will be operating remotely. This includes the offices of Admission, Financial Aid, and Records and Registration. During this time, we are committed to providing the same level of customer service to our prospective, admitted and enrolled students.
Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid!
UBalt offers a range of financial aid and payment options so that all students may benefit from a UBalt education. Financial aid can come in the form of grants, work, student loans, parent loans, scholarships and other awards.
The UBalt financial aid programs have been developed to help students who have academic potential and limited financial resources. The programs are specifically directed at helping those students who would not be able to complete their education without support. Approximately 80 percent of UBalt students receive assistance through our office.

Students are awarded an aid package based on their financial need as determined by the FAFSA data and the cost of attendance for their program. Students are considered for federal grants/loans, institutional grants/scholarships, and federal work study. Students are strongly encouraged to complete and have their FAFSA processed no later than March 1 annually for priority consideration for institutional aid. The school code for all UBalt programs is 002102.
Repeat Coursework Financial Aid Policy
Federal and state regulations limit the number of times a student may repeat a course and receive financial aid for that course.
Ineligible repeated courses will be excluded from counting in the student’s enrollment for financial aid purposes.
- A student may receive aid when repeating a course that was previously failed (received a failing or unsatisfactory grade), regardless of the number of times the course was attempted and failed providing you meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards.
- A student may receive aid to repeat a previously passed course (grade of ‘D’ or higher) one additional time. Once a student has completed any course twice with a passing grade (grade of ‘D-’ or higher), he/she is no longer eligible to receive aid for that course.
This rule applies whether or not the student received aid for earlier enrollments in the course.
Important Note: The Office of Financial Aid does not determine if a student may repeat a class, only whether a student may be eligible for financial aid for a repeat class. In addition, every repeated course affects Satisfactory Academic Progress calculations; all repeated courses are counted as attempted credit hours.
