A US $50 non-refundable application fee is required for application to all graduate degree programs at UMES.
The application fee and a separate application must be submitted for each program or degree-level or status in which entrance is sought.
UMES will waive the Application Fee under the following circumstances:
- The applicant had been admitted, and had previously taken graduate courses at UMES or at SU (see the section on Collaborative Programs with Salisbury University); or
- The applicant is a UMES senior or graduate with a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or better; or
- The applicant is a senior or a graduate of an accredited US college or university, with a cumulative grade point average of 3.75 or better (confirmed by transcript); or
- The applicant is a McNair student/Scholar (must be documented).
Graduate programs may require an acceptance fee, which is applied as a credit to tuition and other fees upon the student’s initial enrollment in the degree program.
