Regular tuition costs for UMPI courses are adjusted for Aspirations students due to State of Maine waivers and UMPI tuition waivers. In addition to tuition costs, Aspirations students must pay additional fees, which are calculated per credit hour. Students are also responsible for the cost of books for their courses. Learn more about the costs of Aspirations and Concurrent Enrollment courses on the University of Maine System Early College website.

Not all high schools qualify for the State of Maine tuition waiver. While schools receiving full public funding are automatically eligible, only a limited number of private high schools receive the State of Maine waiver. These schools, which are at least 60% publicly funded, are reviewed and vetted by the Department of Education.

Student bills can be viewed in MaineStreet after a student has successfully enrolled in a course. One paper bill is sent to the student’s address on file. Full payment or enrollment in a payment plan is due on January 15th for the Spring semester and August 15th for the Fall semester.
