eBilling & Online Payments

eBill Notification Basics

University of Maryland Baltimore is excited to announce that we have partnered with TouchNet® to provide eBills through TouchNet® Bill+Payment™ suite.

You will receive notification via your campus e-mail when an eBill is available to view.  If you do not receive a notification of eBill availability in your campus e-mail at least one week prior to your bill due date, call the Student Accounting Office at 410-706-2930 or email us at: StudentAccounting@umaryland.edu

You are responsible for paying your tuition and fees by the due date even if you do not receive an eBill notification.

  • eBills are a snapshot in time and do not reflect any activity (payments, credits, or adjustments) until the next billing cycle.
  • To view current account balances, recent activity, and estimated financial aid, please log in to the TouchNet® link via SURFS.
  • You may access TouchNet® by logging in to SURFS, then clicking on the TouchNet® link in the Main Menu.

Students are encouraged to review their accounts regularly to ensure all charges and payments are posted correctly.  Failure to make payment in full for all outstanding charges results in late fee assessment and registration/transcript holds being placed on your account. Students whom do not have an Authorized User set up are responsible for printing a PDF copy of their bill and sending it to the payer.

Please contact Student Accounting if you have any concerns so that discrepancies can be addressed and resolved quickly.
