USM Board of Regents to Hold Special Meeting May 6 on Tuition, Mandatory Fees for Fiscal Year 2016

Adelphi, Md. (May 4, 2015) -- The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents will hold a special public meeting to vote on a proposed schedule of tuition and mandatory fees for fiscal year (FY) 2016. The board will meet in public session at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 6 in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Christopher Columbus Center, 701 E. Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD. 

The board also will vote on the FY 2016 operating budget and the biennial nonexempt market salary survey report for FY 2017.

Under the proposed schedule of tuition and mandatory fees for FY 2016, in-state undergraduate full-time and part-time tuition rates, and summer school rates, will increase by no more than 5 percent for all institutions except the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). UMBC's proposed 7 percent increase reflects an additional 2 percent to match a mid-academic-year increase last January implemented by some USM institutions but deferred at UMBC.

Out-of-state undergraduate full-time rates would increase up to five percent. The agenda and background materials, including details regarding graduate tuition rates, can be found here.

 Sign language interpreters and/or other appropriate accommodations for eligible individuals with disabilities will be provided upon request. Please call 301.445.2756 (voice) or 301.314.7683 (TTY/ITT) to make special arrangements.

The Columbus Center is home to the Institute of Marine & Environmental Technology, or IMET. Parking is available in a number of public garages near the center, all visible from Pratt Street.
