2. College scholarships awarded at the time of admission.

3. Scholarships or sponsorships by state or federal agencies, organizations, school districts or companies that are payable to the College. Provide supporting award authorization and complete the school's form.

Frequently Asked Questions

I already have health insurance, how do I waive the health insurance fee?

To waive the health and insurance fees, visit our Health Center page.

Can I request an updated bill?

Yes, updated statements can be seen/printed via Campus Café,  my web services or by calling Student Accounts at 207-893-7732.

What happens if I don't pay my bill on time?

All charges are payable on the dates noted in the Payment Due Dates section at the top of this page. In all cases of payment past the due date, a late fee of $300 will be assessed each semester.

Payment or documentation to clear your charges must be received by the due date in order to enroll for the current semester.

  • There is an automatic HOLD on Grades and Transcripts until all financial obligations have been met.
  • All seniors must clear accounts one month prior to graduation in order to participate in Commencement Exercises and receive their Diploma.

When it is necessary to forward an unpaid account to an outside collection agency, the student is responsible for all collection fees.

What happens to my housing deposit if I still owe money?

Housing deposit money is applied to the unpaid bill if the student does not return due to prior year balance. It is forfeited if student decides not to be a resident or withdraws.

Why didn't I get my grades?

Your grades and transcripts will be held until all financial obligations have been met.

How do I apply for a loan to cover the balance?

Many of our families choose to use a  federal parent loan to pay all or part of the balance remaining after financial aid. We encourage you to research your loan options carefully.
