Paying for College
Central Maine Community College has the lowest tuition in New England. For $ 2,745 per year (plus fees) a full-time, in-state student can graduate with an associate’s degree without incurring significant debt.
The College is committed to making an excellent education accessible and affordable to all students, regardless of financial circumstances. Here you will find information about applying for financial aid, grants and loans, scholarships, work study and veteran's benefits.
The FAFSA School Code for is CMCC 005276.
Financial aid is available to eligible CMCC students who apply and qualify on the basis of financial need. You do not have to be full-time to receive financial aid. Federal Direct Loans are available to students taking six or more credits per semester. Students eligible for a Federal Pell Grant may still qualify in limited circumstances while taking less than six credits per semester.
All students are encouraged to apply for financial aid. CMCC requires only one application, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is free and can be found at www.fafsa.gov. The FAFSA school code for CMCC is 005276. The FAFSA is used to determine a student’s eligibility for grants and scholarships (these do not require repayment), direct loans (which require repayment after the student stops being enrolled for at least six credits), and on-campus student employment (work study). We encourage all students and their families to complete the FAFSA every year as early as October 1st. Students who wish to be considered for the State of Maine Grant must submit the FAFSA by May 1st.
