Financial Certification

As an international applicant, you are required to provide proof that you have sufficient funds to cover your expenses while attending the University of Maryland (UMD).

If you are admitted to UMD and hold or intend to seek an F-1 Student or J-1 Exchange Visitor visa, you must provide proof of available financial resources to cover one year’s worth of expenses (tuition, fees, books, insurance and living expenses). You are only required to provide this documentation after you are offered admission to UMD and have confirmed your enrollment.

For information on what documents to submit, please review the International Student & Scholar Services Acceptable Funding page. There you will also find estimated cost of attendance information. Regarding tuition, fees and financing your education at UMD, please keep in mind the following:

  • Tuition and fees for each semester, as well as other university charges, books and supplies must be paid in full before the first day of classes.
  • Medical insurance is required for all international students attending UMD.
  • As a publicly funded institution, UMD is unable to provide financial assistance to international students. You can find other options for financing your education on the Office of Student Financial Aid website
