Summer Term payment policy does not follow the standard fall/spring semester plan. Below is a timeline of when payment is due. If payment does not successfully post to your student account, you will be canceled for non-payment and blocked from future registration. If the course is full, you risk losing your seat. If the course is online, you will lose all access. You are sent notification regarding this obligation, via the e-mail of record, following any add/drop activity relating to Summer Term.

- To use this form, you must be a current University of Maryland student or have been admitted to Summer Term.
All students receive an e-mail notification that their add/drop activity is under review for payment. This e-mail is sent to the one affiliated with your student record. The e-mail is not a confirmation of payment posting to your account.
If payment fails to post to your student account or if you are ineligible for an immediate payment exemption, you will be notified that your registration has been canceled for non-payment. If you wish to re-register, you will need to submit payment first before the cancellation block is lifted.
Failure to attend class does not result in automatic cancellation. In addition, non-payment should not be used as a means for dropping a course or cancelling registration. Students are ultimately responsible for officially dropping a course, cancelling registration, or withdrawing (with notation) by the posted deadlines to avoid academic and/or financial consequences.
Exemptions to Immediate Payment
- Students eligible for financial aid, a fellowship, tuition remission, an athletic scholarship, Veteran, or 3rd party billing select this at the Payment Calculation Page.
- After selecting your course(s), you will be directed to the payment screen to select your exemption.
- Failure to select an exemption or if you are found ineligible, will result in registration cancellation and blocked from future registration. If ineligible, you may be sent to the Office of Student Conduct.
It is your responsibility to notify the Financial Services Center of your payment exemption. The Financial Service Center does a one-time review and will cancel you for non-payment with no advanced notice. Tuition remission and some financial aid do not cover the Summer Term Mandatory Service fee and other course fees.
- Students who register for courses in the following programs need not submit immediate payment. You must, however, contact the program Web site to determine when tuition and fees are due.
