Your FinAid account is where you can check the status of any aid and/or offers, find disbursement information and learn more about entrance and exit counseling.
Types of aid can be classified as either need-based, meaning you and your family are not able to cover educational expenses, or non-need based, which generally refers to aid you receive based on merit or qualification.
Understanding the financial aid process is critical in setting realistic expectations. We are committed to providing you with helpful information and resources that can assist in making your investment in a UMD education affordable.
As part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund was created to provide universities with funds for emergency financial aid grants. Learn more about the UMD Emergency Financial Aid Grant.
