U of Maine Offers Deep Discounts to Out-of-Staters

December 14, 2015

People in Northeastern states outside of Maine have been noticing billboards that say, "Go to UMaine for Same Cost as" the state flagship of their state. The billboards are part of a plan in which the University of Maine, that state's flagship, is making a big push for out-of-state students. While many flagships are engaged in such strategies to get the higher out-of-state tuition rates, Maine is eliminating the price differential. Maine will match in-state flagship tuition rates for qualifying students from Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Vermont for those who have a 3.0 high school grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) and at least a combined reading/math SAT score of 1050 or an ACT composite of at least 22.
