We are excited that you have chosen to further your education at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. The University is particularly sensitive to the financial needs of its student body. Operating on the premise that no student should be denied an education solely because of a lack of financial resources, the University's Office of Student Financial Aid renders assistance to as many students as possible in the form of employment, scholarships, University endowed scholarships, grants and student loans. Qualifying students may receive funds from one or more of the programs administered by the University and funded from federal, state, and institutional sources.
To be considered for financial aid, students should apply by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early in the year as possible, since financial aid is generally awarded on the basis of need and in the order of application. The federal school code for the University of Maryland Eastern Shore is 002106.
