A Military-Friendly State University Serving Military Spouses and Families

University of Maryland University College is a state university with a rich history of educating military servicemembers, their spouses, and their families, dating back to World War II.

We understand the demands and unpredictability of military life. That's why we've designed UMUC to be convenient and flexible for military families.

Your UMUC education is portable. You can study online or choose from 150 worldwide locations in the U.S., Europe and Asia. And our reduced tuition rate for military family members makes a college education more affordable.
