Financial Aid

Explore options for making your education more affordable:

  • Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA): You may be eligible for financial aid in the form of low-interest loans and veterans’ benefits. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine if you are able to receive aid for your intended program.


  • Grants and Loans: Financial aid, such as Federal Pell Grants and Federal Stafford Loans (subsidized or unsubsidized), can significantly cut the cost of your education and give you financial flexibility. To be eligible, you will need to be admitted as a matriculated student at Notre Dame of Maryland University, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and register for at least 6 credits.
  • Employee Tuition Reimbursement: Ask your employer if you are eligible for employee tuition reimbursement, which many of our students use to make a Notre Dame education possible. The Employer Tuition Remission Payment Plan enables students to register and partially defer tuition. At the time of registration, all fees and 15 percent of total tuition is due. The balance of your tuition is payable 60 days after the last class of the semester. See Employee Tuition Remission Payment Form that should be submitted at time of registration each semester.
