Qualify for Free Tuition?

The Promise Program guarantees that first-time, full-time, Pell Grant-eligible students from Maine will receive an annual tuition discount package which covers the cost of tuition and fees for the academic year (30 credits plus standard fees).

The University has established several guidelines in order for students to participate in the program. Applicants must:

  • be in-state, first-time, full-time students who will start college at UMFK during the Fall 2022 semester and complete at least 12 credits each semester;
  • submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and complete a financial aid application at UMFK for the appropriate award year;
  • be either U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens;
  • be residents of Maine who have lived in-state for 12 continuous months prior to acceptance at UMFK;
  • be graduates from a Maine high school (or earned a high school equivalency diploma);
  • meet all other general eligibility requirements of the Federal Title IV Financial Aid Programs, including Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements; and
  • maintain an accumulative GPA of 2.0 while at UMFK.
