Financial Aid

Applying for Financial Aid

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step in applying for student aid. It is the document that the federal government uses to determine how much of your tuition you are able to pay, and how much money you are eligible to receive. UB also accepts the paper version of the FAFSA, available at most colleges and universities. Please include University of Baltimore school code 002102 on your application.

While you may complete a FAFSA any time after January 1, the year before attendance, throughout the school year of attendance, it is best to complete this application before the March 1 State of Maryland Priority Deadline to receive the highest financial aid award possible.

Other Financial Aid Resources

While UB does not offer general merit-based scholarships on the graduate level, other financial resources are available, including:

  • Graduate Assistantships through your specific program or department. Check with your program for availability and details.
  • Work-Study opportunities through the UB Career Center. Under the work-study program, students can work in various departments on campus and approved non-profit agencies off campus.

Maryland State Scholarships

Students may also contact the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) at 410.260.4565 to inquire about scholarship opportunities for Maryland residents. Log onto their new MDCAPS system to search for state scholarships, view your award status or update your State award information.
