Welcome to the University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s student consumer information page. This page was created to provide easy access to the information you need to be an informed consumer of a UMES education.
The US Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, requires all institutions of higher education, who receive federal student financial assistance, to make student consumer information available to all enrolled and prospective students. This page acts as a central resource for information that can be found in other UMES web sites, brochures and publications.
Subject to Change: Because of the nature of federal, state and institutional guidelines affecting financial aid programs, the information contained on this website is subject to change.
