Graduate 16-17

For use in 2017 Student Fee Survey!

The Graduate Program Fee (GPF) supports the Graduate Student Association (GSA). The GSA is tasked with:

  • Supporting, promoting, and representing all graduate students at UMBC;
  • Providing a forum for discussions of and recommendations on matters involving graduate students and their welfare at UMBC; and
  • Providing opportunities for intellectual, professional and social development through grants, public presentation of research, graduate community events, and campus service support

Approximately 60% of the total Graduate Program Fee goes toward the GSA Grants Program.

For full-time and part-time undergraduates: The fee is currently $0 and there is no proposed increase.

For graduate students: The fee is currently $16 per credit hour and there is no proposed increase.
