We are affordable!

As a small public college, UMM is able to offer you a unique educational experience at a reasonable price far below that of most private colleges. Far too often, students do not pursue a college education because they do not know how to pay for it. UMM is committed to providing opportunity for qualified students through a variety of scholarships and financial aid packages.

Tuition and Fees

Few students pay the actual full cost of their college education. Each year, about 90 percent of UMM students receive some sort of aid, with assistance coming in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, and on-campus jobs. Last year, UMM gave out $2.5 million in scholarships, grants, and tuition waivers.

To help you calculate the cost of your education, The University of Maine at Machias has two Net Price Calculators to help you to estimate your costs and financial aid options. Select the option that applies to you to calculate your costs.
