Veterans and Dependents of Veterans

The Office of Student Financial Aid is proud to serve those who have served our country. We administer various federal, state and university aid programs to help University of Maine students finance their education. We award and process financial aid for students and advise students and their families, the campus community and the general public on issues related to financial aid.

We suggest you begin by reviewing our Veteran’s Education and Transition Services (VETs) website or contact them directly by calling 207.581.1316 to assist you in determining your eligibility for veteran’s benefits
