2022-2023 Estimated Cost of Attendance
The Cost of Attendance (COA) is the maximum amount of financial assistance available to a student in one academic year. The COA is determined using each student’s enrollment (Day or Evening) and residency classification (Resident or Non-Resident). Tuition is based upon enrollment of twelve (12) credits
Applicants needing federal and institutional financial assistance to help with the cost of attending a school or program at UMB must complete the Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA). Please note:
- Each year, the FAFSA is available on October 1st. USFA strongly encourages completing the FAFSA at studentaid.gov no later than March 1st for priority consideration
- The 2022-2023 FAFSA covers the 2022-2023 Academic Year (Summer 2022, Fall 2022 and Spring 2023)
- Students must complete a FAFSA for every academic year they wish to receive assistance

JD Tuition Structure
JD students enrolled in the Full-Time Day Division pay flat rate tuition for the first year while taking the structured required curriculum and are billed on a per credit basis for remaining electives and graduation requirements. A detailed breakdown of tuition can be found on the UMB website.
Students who have completed the first year in the Full-Time Day Division may enroll in any number of credits up to a maximum of 17 during the fall and spring semesters and up to a maximum of nine credits in the summer term.
Students enrolled in the Part-Time Evening Division pay flat rate tuition for the first four semesters while taking the structured required curriculum and are billed on a per credit basis in subsequent semesters for remaining electives and graduation requirements. Students who have completed two years in the Part-Time Evening Division may, after the second year, enroll in any number of credits up to a maximum of 17 during the fall and spring semesters and up to a maximum of nine credits in the summer term.
The amount students pay in tuition for the eighty-five credits required for graduation is equivalent to the amount that would have been paid under a flat rate system. Exact numbers may vary slightly due to university fees. Once students complete 85 credits, enrolling in additional credits will result in paying additional tuition beyond the equivalent of three years of flat-rate tuition.
This tuition system gives all students the ability to vary the number of electives taken in a given semester and take summer school courses without incurring additional charges or changing divisions. Students must take most of the required courses in the division in which they first enrolled, but subject to enrollment priorities, are able to take electives offered in either the day or evening to allow flexibility in scheduling.
A division change should only be necessary when a student who has completed the first year in the Part-Time Division requests permission to transition to the Day Division. Doing so requires giving up the flat rate and paying on a per credit basis going forward. This will require paying more in tuition for the degree than if the student remains in the evening program for the 2E year.
