UMaine Online Flagship Scholarship Program 2019-2020 for First-Year Students
UMaine is pleased to offer the Online Flagship Scholarship Program1 for out-of-state first-year students enrolling in one of UMaineOnline’s undergraduate degree programs and entering in the Fall of 2019 and Spring of 2020. The Online Flagship Scholarship Program1 is for full-time students planning to enroll in 15 credits. Students will be awarded based on the combination of their Academic Credentials, their Residency and enrollment as a degree candidate in one of UMaineOnline’s undergraduate degree programs.
To qualify for an Online Flagship Award first-year students must submit a completed application by March 1. No FAFSA is required to receive an Online Award, but first-year students must file a FAFSA by March 1 in order to be considered for federal need-based aid. Students who qualify for the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) regional student program are not eligible for a Online Flagship Award. Please see our NEBHE Award information for First-Year Students.
Please note: Any change to a student’s tuition status will result in adjustment of financial aid, including scholarships. This includes any waiver program or reciprocity agreement that results in non-resident students being charged the online or resident tuition rate.
First year applicants who are accepted early in the fall admission cycle may provide updated academic information to be considered for scholarship upgrades until June 1. Low-Credit Transfers with fewer than 30 credits at the time of admission may request scholarship re-consideration if the total number of college-level credits earned has increased to 30 or more college level credits. Requests for transfer scholarship reconsideration and upgrades will be considered until June 1 for fall applicants and until January 1 for spring applicants.
1 Merit scholarships are offered based on an enrollment of 15 credits per semester. Scholarships will be pro-rated to 80% of the full scholarship amount for students enrolled in 12-14 credits per semester. Student’s enrolled less than full-time (less than 12 credits per semester) are not eligible.
