Below you can learn more about the State Central Collection Unit and the policies that UMUC follows in the event your account balance is not paid. Please note that there are stern penalties for delinquent accounts. To avoid these repercussions, please be sure to pay your account balance in a timely fashion.
In accordance with UMUC Asia policy, if a student fails to pay charges incurred with UMUC within 120 days of the transaction date, UMUC has the authority to deem that account delinquent and transfer it to the State of Maryland Central Collection Unit. In addition to the debt with the University, SCCU charges an additional 17% collection fee on all accounts transferred to collections. Once a past due balance with UMUC has been transferred to the State Central Collection Unit, the student’s information will be reported to a credit bureau. Requests for services (e.g., registration, transcripts, diplomas, commencement arrangements, transfer credit reviews) will be denied until all debts are paid in full.
After an account has been transferred to SCCU, all payments must be made directly to SCCU. You can contact SCCU at 410-767-1220 or at 800-705-3493 or visit The Maryland Department of Budget & Management Web site. If your payment has been made in full to SCCU, please provide us with a copy of your SCCU receipt indicating “Paid in Full” to UMUC in order to restore your services.
