Tuition and Fees/College of Undergraduate Studies
Many of our students use employee tuition reimbursement to make a Notre Dame education possible. Ask your employer if you are eligible for this benefit. The Notre Dame office of financial aid will help you identify other types of aid.
Tuition - $500 per credit
Registration/technology Fee (nonrefundable)—$150 per term
FACTS tuition management service* charge (if applicable, non-refundable)—$25
Late tuition payment fee —$100
Registration/technology fee must accompany all College of Adult Undergraduate Studies registrations. Tuition may be paid by check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover. Payment can be made in person, by phone or by fax. NB: Credit and debit card payments will include a 2.5% processing fee.
Students interested in financial aid, such as Federal Pell Grants and Federal Stafford Loans (subsidized or unsubsidized) must:
• be admitted as a matriculated student at Notre Dame of Maryland University
• complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
• register for at least 6 credits
Tuition Adjustment Policy
Tuition adjustments are based upon the total tuition due for all courses in any given semester. They are made on a percentage basis dependent on the date that the written withdrawal request is received in the registrar's office. Tuition adjustment schedules, with the appropriate dates and percentages, are published in the course schedules at the beginning of each semester. Please note: Telephone messages, communications with faculty members or advisors and nonattendance at class are not valid methods of withdrawing from classes and do not obligate the University to refund all or part of the tuition. The fact that a student has not attended a class has no impact on tuition adjustment.
Nonpayment of tuition without proper notification to the registrar's office of withdrawal from classes does not obligate the University to refund tuition payments or to credit a student's account for the tuition for that semester. If the University exercises its right to drop students for nonpayment, students must re-register for the courses. Payment of the outstanding tuition does not constitute re-registration and does not ensure the student a seat in any class.
Requests for a tuition refund must be made in writing to the business office or indicated on the withdrawal form available in the registrar's office. Registration, admission application fee and late fees are nonrefundable. A student who is receiving financial aid will be subject to the refund policy established by federal guidelines.
* FACTS Tuition Management
The monthly payment plan enables students to register and make monthly payments during the semester against their outstanding balance. Payments can be made using a credit card or with direct debit from checking or savings accounts. Payments for the fall semester are made during the months of August, September, October and November for a processing fee of $25. For registration for fall, students can reserve a place in class until August with the payment of their $130 registration/technology fee. To use the payment plan, students check the appropriate box on the registration form. The Automatic Tuition Payment Agreement form must be completed online at eCashier.
