Cost of Attendance

  •  

    The University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) Office of Student Financial Aid establishes estimated budgets also termed Cost of Attendance which are used to determine need and eligibility for financial aid awards.  The Cost of Attendance also provides students and their families with a reasonable estimate of all costs, both direct and indirect.  These budgets include allowances for tuition and fees, room and board, books, transportation and personal expenses based on full-time enrollment. The University reserves the right to adjust a student's budget based on enrollment or other mitigating factors.

    RESIDENCY CATEGORIES

    UMES has three categories of residency - in-state, out-of-state, and Eastern Shore regional. They are determined by the following general guidelines and are required to meet all residency requirements set by the Office of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management.

    Maryland Resident - MUST be a legal resident of the state of Maryland

    Eastern Shore Regional Resident - MUST be a legal resident of the state of Delaware or Eastern Shore Virginia

    Out of State Resident - if you do not meet any of the above residency requirements, then you are considered out-of-state

     

    TUITION AND FEES

    The tuition and fee amounts used in the cost of attendance budgets are based on full-time enrollment.

    ROOM AND BOARD

    Room and board (food) allowance is based on the average expense a student may incur based on their living status. The cost associated with the student’s choice of meal plan and residency status (on or off campus) may vary from budget estimates.

    BOOKS AND SUPPLIES

    The books and supplies allowance is based on an estimate provided by the UMES Bookstore for full-time enrollment. However, the expense of these items may vary based on the courses selected by the student.

    TRANSPORTATION

    The transportation allowance is based on the average expense a student may incur based on their living status. The cost is associated with the variety of transportation expenses a student may incur (e.g. gas, maintenance, public transportation, travel to home state during vacations and holidays). The cost associated with the student’s choice of travel may vary from budget estimates.

    PERSONAL EXPENSES

    Miscellaneous expenses include allowances for clothing, toiletries and other living expenses. These expenses may vary based on the individual student’s lifestyle. The allowance is based on a reasonable estimate.

    Tuition and fees are estimated at the time of awarding. Actual tuition and fee charges are determined by the Maryland Board of Regents at a later date.
