Financial Aid and Scholarships
Applying for financial aid:
The Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is due on or before March 1 for priority consideration for Financial Aid. Please add the UMaine code (002053) to your online FAFSA immediately if you are considering a transfer to UMaine. A new application is required for each academic year.
Incoming fall transfer students are automatically considered for scholarships at the time of admission to UMaine. Typically, merit scholarship awards are included with the letter of acceptance, although some scholarships are awarded after the admission process is complete. First priority is given to transfers who apply by June 1. Students submitting their application after June 1 will be considered while funds are available. Scholarships are renewable up to 3 years.
