Student Fee Adjustments for the Fall 2020 Term
The fall 2020 semester is right around the corner and we want to provide you with some important updates.
- During the 2020-21 academic year, we will continue to charge the tuition rates from 2019-20. That means UBalt is not increasing tuition this year. Your fall tuition charges and UBalt’s cost of attendance have been adjusted accordingly. The Office of Financial Aid team is now adjusting financial aid packages.
- With the University operating in a remote learning environment, we have decreased the following mandatory fees for the fall 2020 semester. The auxiliary operating fee is being reduced over 52 percent from $23 per credit hour to $11 per credit hour. You will see this fee adjustment on your student account today. Other fall 2020 mandatory fees have not been adjusted as they support ongoing fixed costs and fund student service areas and student government that are providing all their services virtually. Any questions on this fee adjustment can be sent via email to email@example.com.
- UB has established several new resources to assist you with expenses related to the pandemic. Hundreds of students have received special financial grants; these grants provide immediate support and students do not need to repay them. Funding is available for the fall semester to eligible students. See more information on the Office of Financial Aid UBalt CARES Grant web page.
- Students who have balances due from the spring 2020 semester or prior can sign up for a payment plan to enable them to continue their education this fall while paying their past balance in installments.
The impact of COVID-19 has been challenging for our entire campus community, and we remain committed to finding ways to help our students during this time. We are here to assist with your billing and tuition needs; please contact us via email or phone at 410.837.4848 to leave a voicemail message. Both options are monitored during the business day.
We are here to help! We are glad that you are a member of the UBalt community, a community with nationally ranked student outcomes, award-winning academic programs, and a distinguished track record in delivering in-person, online, and hybrid education. We applaud your commitment to your education and your perseverance through these challenging times. We wish you the very best in the upcoming semester.
