International Students


International students are ineligible for Federal Student Aid and institutional need-based financial aid. However, undergraduate international students may be considered for UMBC merit scholarships.

International students may participate in UMBC’s Monthly Payment Plan, as an alternative to a one-time payment of the bill in full.

International students may also visit the following web pages to gather additional information regarding their study in the United States:

  • EduPass: Information for international students who are interested in pursuing an undergraduate or graduate education in the United States.
  • Information and advice regarding preparation for your education as well as living and learning in the United States.
