Welcome!

The Office of Student Financial Aid is here to assist students and families with the process of receiving financial aid to cover the cost of education at the University of Maine. We help with all forms of aid including grants, scholarships, loans, work-study, waivers, and assistantships. To get you started, our Money Matters Guide provides information on the steps students must take to successfully receive financial aid and pay their bill each semester.

We look forward to supporting your success at UMaine!

To best serve our students and align with recent public health advisories in relation to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) our office will be adjusting the way you can contact us as of Thursday, March 19, 2020. 

Please note, students and families will be unable to visit our in person location at Wingate Hall, until at least April 6, 2020.  Please continue to monitor umaine.edu/coronavirus with updates to this information.
