Contact Us

The Office of Student Financial Aid staff is dedicated to providing you with the necessary tools and information needed to fund your education. If you need assistance or have a question or comment, please contact us. 

When contacting us:

  • Please have your 9-digit UMD identification number (UID) available when calling, emailing or visiting. We cannot provide student-specific information without the UID and a full student name. 
  • We cannot guarantee security through email. Therefore, when sending sensitive information via email, documents with personal information such as full Social Security numbers must be attached as an encrypted document and the associated password must be sent in a separate email. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, verification documents are only being accepted via email at this time.
