important billing information
Important Billing Information

PLEASE NOTE

  • As of June 1, 2009, students will no longer need to enroll in e-billing.  Students now will login to myUMBC and access their e-billing account, make online payments and sign up for the monthly payment plan all in the same link on the Billing and Personal Finances Topic page.
  • Students that created an e-billing account previously can continue to access that account on the same Billing and Personal Finances Topic page to inquire about past bills, but no e-bills will be loaded onto that site after May 2009 and no payments can be made on that site after May 2009.
  • Students can grant e-billing access to parents, spouses and other authorized payors.
  • There is also a way for others to pay student accounts without a login.
  • All payments made online will post to accounts immediately.  No more waiting 2 to 3 days for the payments to post.
  • The same online payment options remain; credit cards with convenience fees (new fee 2.75%) ACH with no fees.
  • Add or Drop classes and you will immediately see updated charges. No more waiting a month for the registration to update.
  • Information regarding Fall 2010 Tuition, Fees and Billing can be found at http://www.umbc.edu/sbs/tuition_fall_2010.htm
