Financial Aid & Scholarships

You’ve been accepted and we’d like to offer you help with your financial needs. To receive any financial support, you must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form (FAFSA), if you haven’t already. To complete the FAFSA online, go to Once your FAFSA is filed, you can check on the status, make corrections or add additional schools to receive your information. The University of Maine at Presque Isle school code is 002033.

Students should submit their applications at the earliest possible date. Financial aid awards are made on a rolling basis in the order that application files become complete in the Financial Aid Office. Priority is given to students who complete their file by April 1. Completed applications for financial aid will be considered at any time during the academic year; however, you may find that some funding will be exhausted if you file beyond April 1.

We also offer two merit based scholarships to anyone transferring from outside the State of Maine but within the United States. See the Out-of-State section of the Merit Awards page.
