Tuition and Fees – most recent information available from the UMES Office of the Comptroller.
Due to the technology and software requirements of the curriculum, laptops are required. To ensure all students have the equipment required, the UMES SOP has developed a Laptop Program where the laptop, assessment equipment, and other software needs of the program are added to the UMES fees. A three year Total Care Warranty (which covers accidental damage due to drops and spills), Turning Point Response Ware, Microsoft Office Professional, and network cable are included in the fee. This fee also covers the loan of a temporary laptop should a student’s laptop need repairing. Thee laptop (with software loaded) and other equipment will be disseminated during the UMES SOP New Student Orientation. Students own the laptops and do not need to return them at the end of the program.
Please be advised that the Doctor of Pharmacy program does not offer a payment plan. Each term charges due must be paid prior to the first day of class.
Total withdrawal from the Doctor of Pharmacy program on or after the first day of class WILL NOT receive a full refund. Please refer to the UMES SOP Student Handbook regarding the Total Withdrawal Refund Policy for full and partial refunds.
The Employee and Dependent Tuition Remission program does not apply to the Doctor of Pharmacy program.
