Fees charged to UMUC students in Asia fall into several categories, as outlined in this section.
All fees are payable in full, in U.S. Dollars, at the times specified. No cash may be accepted. Checks, e-checks, money orders, or postal notes must be made payable to UMUC Asia and must be drawn on a U.S. bank or post office. Payment for tuition, books, transcripts, and other fees may also be made by credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa).
Payments should be made by going to the MyUMUC Student Portal and clicking MyFinances -> Make a Payment.
Application Fee: $50
UMUC Asia charges a non-refundable fee for establishing the student's permanent record, the official University document from which transcripts are issued. Payment should be made through the MyUMUC Portal the first time the eApplication with University of Maryland University College Asia is completed.
GoArmyEd students who complete a Common Application in the GoArmyEd Portal must pay the $50 application fee upon receipt of a bill or by submitting payment in the MyUMUC portal.
This fee is not required of consortium students unless they declare their intent to pursue a certificate or degree through UMUC Asia.
Tuition and fees are to be paid no later than the tenth calendar day of the session. If you have a question regarding your account, please contact the Business Office.
A member of the Armed Forces may be entitled to tuition assistance from the United States government. The student must submit a completed tuition assistance form at the time of registration. GoArmyEd students secure tuition assistance through the GoArmyEd system and do not need to submit a tuition assistance form. If for any reason the government does not provide funding for the course, the student becomes responsible for payment.
Students may also qualify for Veterans Affairs (VA) education benefits and other forms of financial assistance. Information on financial assistance (loans and grants) and VA benefits may be found here.

All students who incur debts to UMUC Asia during a particular session must clear them in order to register for the next session. Payment can be made by check, e-check, money order, or credit card. Requests for services, including transcripts, evaluations, and diplomas, will be put on hold until all debts have been paid. Outstanding debts will be collected against any refunds due the student. After a reasonable period of time, uncollected debts will be forwarded to the State of Maryland Central Collections Unit and other national credit bureaus. All such debts incur an additional 17 percent processing charge by the State of Maryland.
