Effective Fall Semester 2007, UMD has restructured the undergraduate tuition policy in favor of a tuition-banding strategy. All credits above 13 per semester will now be tuition-free. All undergraduates will pay a flat tuition rate based on a 13-credit load; credits 1–12 are assessed at a per-credit rate.
The tuition band is a way to help students reduce the cost of their education, since students who take advantage of the band and graduate in 4 years rather than 5 years pay significantly less. To graduate in 4 years, a student on average must complete 15–16 credits per semester.

UMD's Academic English Language Program (AELP) helps international students improve English reading, writing, and speaking skills for success in a university classroom or in the workplace. All of the courses are at the advanced level and are offered for college credit.
Current UMD students are eligible for the Rutherford International Student Scholarship. Please see Rutherford International Student Scholarship for more information and the application form. This scholarship is for students in good academic standing who demonstrate some financial need.

Financial Aid and Work Study
Financial aid as discussed by UMD generally refers to federal or state financial aid that is only available to domestic students. This funding is not available to people on F-1, F-2, J-1, and J-2 visas.
International students are not eligible for employment that specifies "Work Study Only". Work Study means the position is funded partially by federal or state financial aid money so international students are not eligible.
