We are affordable!

As a small regional campus of a public university, UMaine Machias 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.

UMaine Machias is committed to providing opportunity for students through a variety of scholarships and financial aid packages. Each year, about 95 percent of UMaine Machias students receive aid in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, and on-campus jobs.
