Thanks to a collaborative effort between the Maine Legislature Aspirations Program, the Department of Education, and the University of Maine system, publicly funded Maine-state high school students and registered Maine home school students enrolled in Early College courses are eligible for 12 credits per year at no cost.
Out-of-state students are responsible for the discounted half-tuition rate of $138.25 per credit.
All students are still responsible for some course supply fees and purchasing textbooks.
If you’ve taken more than the covered credits, you will receive a bill for those extra credits. Students enrolled in more than 12 credits per year are responsible for paying for additional credits at the discounted half rate of $138.25 per credit. For example, if you take 15 credits in one year, you will be billed for three (3) credits at the discounted rate (3 X $138.25 = $414.75). This bill will be mailed to the address you provided when you applied.
For Native American students, we have a Native American Waiver Process when you have taken over 12 credits in an academic year. You should reach out to the UMFK Community Education Office for assistance in this case.
