Payment Plan

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore offers a monthly payment plan as an alternative to standard payment arrangements. The monthly payment plan enables students to pay college billed expenses in regular monthly payments without incurring interest charges. There is a $35.00 non-refundable payment plan enrollment fee (per semester) to cover administrative expenses. The plan enrollment fee will be charged to your account upon completion of the Payment Confirmation. Three plans are available for the semester; five, four, and three monthly payment plans.

Payment Plan Guidelines

  • The first payment is due by the due by the first day of the month after payment plan enrollment. Payments are due by the first day of each month, even if you do not receive a bill.
  • Only charges billed by UMES may be budgeted (off campus expenses, etc. cannot be included).
  • The University reserves the right to re-budget accounts as additional charges are incurred. (e.g., charges are added for meals, housing, etc., which were not originally budgeted.).

    Withdrawal from the University does not constitute withdrawal from the payment plan. Be advised, the student is still responsible for any tuition and fees remaining on the account. Bills are generated on or around the first of each month and 24-hour online access to your account is available. Should a payment be returned for insufficient funds, the University will assess an additional $35.00 service charge. All payment plans must be paid in full by the last day of the semester. Failure to make monthly installment payments may result in any remaining balance on the account becoming due and payable in full. A 17% collection fee will be added to all accounts sent to the State of Maryland Central Collection Unit.
