Tuition and Fees

We are affordable!

As a small public college, UMM is able to offer 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. In 2018, UMM gave out $2.5 million in scholarships, grants, and tuition waivers.

The University of Maine at Machias offers a Net Price Calculator to help you to estimate your costs and financial aid options.
