Marrs Quoted in AP Article on Maine Student Loan Tax Credit Program

Gianna Marrs, director of financial aid for the University of Maine, spoke with the Associated Press for an article about the Educational Opportunity Tax Credit and how it is being overlooked because of the state’s failure to market it effectively. UMaine financial aid officials said they tell students about the program and available resources but can’t guarantee they sign up after graduation. Marrs said UMaine is “trying to do more in general to help students manage their loans and help them just become better consumers,” and “the Opportunity Maine tax credit does play a part in that.” News & Observer, Miami Herald, Portland Press Herald,, Sun Journal and WABI (Channel 5) carried the AP report.
