COLLEGE PARK, Md., Nov. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The University of Maryland is proud to announce a new college application fee waiver for members of the U.S. Armed Forces. Driven by the Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success–of which UMD is a member–the initiative will allow veterans and current service members to apply for free through the Coalition’s online application. The waiver will be available beginning in August 2018 for students applying for the 2019-2020 academic year.
