Money Matters Bulletin

Fall 2017

 The financial requirements of the University, changing costs, state and legislative action, and other matters may require an adjustment of charges and expenses.  The University reserves the right to make such changes at any time.  The applicant acknowledges this by submitting application for admission or registering.

For a full list of tuition and fees, please see the current course guide or visit our website provided above.  Students may access an up-to-date status of their student account at any time via MaineStreet:

Fall 2017 registration for degree students begins on March 13, 2017 and open registration for non-degree students begins March 20, 2017. The due date for the fall 2017 term is August 15, 2017. Beginning on August 15, 2017 payment is due when registering.

Multi-Campus Students:  Tuition, fees and other educational costs are approved annually for each of the seven campuses of the University of Maine System by the Board of Trustees.  UMA students enrolled in classes offered by other University of Maine campuses should consult that campus for information pertaining to billing and refund policies, amounts, and dates.

Payment: Students may pay in full or spread their (remaining) costs over the summer by enrolling in a 4-installment payment plan. The 1st installment, including the $30 payment plan fee, is due on or before August 15, 2017. Cash, checks, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover are accepted; credit card payments for remaining payment plan installments may be made online via Mainestreet.

Students are ultimately solely responsible for their account balances and are encouraged to apply for aid or submit third party authorizations in a timely fashion. Balances not paid by due dates–whether intended to be paid by the student, external sources, or financial aid–will incur a late fee.  A student’s current registration may be cancelled or prohibited in future terms for accounts that are not satisfied.  Unpaid accounts may be referred for collection and additional fees charged.  The University participates in the State of Maine’s Tax Refund Set-Off Program, which may deduct balances due the University from student’s future Maine income tax returns.

Financial Aid:  Financial aid-in-progress, or anticipated aid, will display within Mainestreet.  Although anticipated aid is considered to reduce the student’s overall account balance, the funds will not be transferred to cover charges unless all requirements are met as stipulated by the Student Financial Services Office.  Loans will only display as anticipated once you have accepted the loan offer on Mainestreet. Awarded financial aid is transferred to the student’s account within 10 days from the start of the term.  Any excess aid (financial aid less charges) will be mailed to the student in order that they may have their refund check prior to the opening day of campus classes.  After the opening day of campus classes, excess financial aid refund checks will generally be issued weekly. 

IMPORTANT FACT:  In accordance with Federal regulations, financial assistance may be adjusted for aid recipients that reduce credit hours or withdraw during the semester.  A portion of his or her financial aid will be refunded to the Title IV programs as required by the U.S. Department of Education.  Such financial aid calculations due to changes in enrolled credit hours from credit hours used in the calculation of aid award may result in the student owing a balance to the University.

Employer or Agency Payment: The University will accept an unconditional guarantee of direct payment from an employer, federal or state agency, or the military.  The Third Party Authorization Form (Third Party Sponsorship of Student Charges) is submitted to the Student Financial Services Office at the time of registration and must specify what charges and amounts are covered.  The student is expected to have arrangements in place to pay uncovered charges at the time of registration, and remains responsible for all costs if the third party organization does not pay.

Veterans: If you are an honorably discharged Veteran being charged the out-of-state tuition rate, you may qualify for the in-state tuition rate, regardless of the era served. If you believe that you may qualify for the reduced tuition rate, please supply the University of Maine at Augusta with either your current military ID or your last DD-214. The documents maybe be sent to:
