Tuition Discounts for Faculty and Staff of American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) Member Institutions

University of Maryland University College (UMUC) is pleased to offer a 25 percent tuition discount to full-time employees and staff members of American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) member institutions. The discount is only available to students who are enrolled in UMUC's Doctor of Management in Community College Policy and Administration program (listed below) who have not been awarded a UMUC scholarship.

Doctor of Management in Community College Policy and Administration*

This program is for college faculty and administrators who aspire to lead effectively and advance in administrative careers. Designed for busy working professionals, the interactive program format offers maximum flexibility and convenience as well as the practical knowledge and application necessary to excel in today's community college environment. As a hybrid program, the Doctor of Management in Community College Policy and Administration (DMCCPA) is predominantly distance learning with nine on-site residencies, which typically last two to three days, one during each semester of study.

Tuition Discount, Eligibility, and Employment Verification

You must be a full-time faculty or staff member of an American Association of Community Colleges (AACCA) member institution to qualify for the 25 percent tuition discount. The discount applies to all of the 6-credit content courses and 4-credit dissertation courses. The DMCCPA program requires 48 credits for program completion.

Employment verification is conducted via submission of your most recent paystub from an eligible Alliance institution for each semester you are enrolled and within 10 days of the start of the semester. The paystub may be submitted to Monica Graham, Academic Specialist, via e-mail at monica.graham@umuc.edu or fax 240-684-2404. Failure to submit your most recent paystub before the start of the semester may result in no discount being applied for that semester.

Excluded Course

The Alliance tuition discount does not apply to the Doctor of Management in Community College Policy and Administration prerequisite course DMGT 600. The discount applies to all 6-credit content and 4-credit dissertation courses.
