UMUC

We’ve just announced an exciting alliance between the U.S. Office of Personnel Management and the University of Maryland University College (UMUC).  UMUC will offer a 25 percent discount on out-of-state tuition rates on courses, certificates, and degree programs to all current Federal employees, spouses, and their legal dependents.

This alliance will increase all Federal employees’ access to high quality and affordable educational resources. One of my top priorities at OPM is to provide our Federal workforce – from resume to retirement – with the training and tools they need to provide excellent service to the American people and to progress and develop in their careers. This alliance will give us just such a tool.

The 25 percent discount will apply to all undergraduate programs and most graduate programs.

Anyone interested can begin to take advantage of this discounted tuition as early as the summer semester at UMUC. Registration for the first online summer session ends on May 14, 2014. UMUC offers two additional online summer sessions in June and July. So, make sure you visit UMUC for more information as well as the application and enrollment instructions.

Frequently asked questions about this exciting opportunity are available through the CHCO memo announcement.
