Welcome parents of prospective, new and current UMBC students! We strongly encourage our students to be proactively involved in the financial aid process that affects them; however, we understand that parents sometimes desire specific information about their students’ financial aid in order to assist them with college expenses. To this end, the following will assist parents in making the financial aid process a little easier.
Accessing Student Records
Parents who need information about their student’s financial aid offer can receive this information if Profile Sharing access is on file. It is the student’s responsibility to share their profile with anyone they wish to receive their information, if they choose to do so. Parents can call our office to receive information and representatives will be happy to assist.
Estimating Out-of-Pocket Expenses
Parents can estimate their students’ out-of-pocket expenses by comparing the financial aid offer to estimated tuition, fee, room and board charges which can be found under the Cost tab.
Additional Loans to Supplement the Award Package
If you are interested in staying more connected with the UMBC campus, The Division of Student Affairs also offers UMBC Family Connection. This portal can help you stay up to date regarding UMBC news and resources to help your student succeed.
