    Very affordable education, but a little pricey on the dorms and meals. I feel for the cost I am getting a good education here. I am pleased with this school. It all about what you want to put into it.

    Some programs were experiencing cut-backs/down sizing which limited options for classes. Some majors were in the process of being eliminated.

    Good bang for the buck...even better if you get scholarships. Very affordable for working students.

    If the financial aid at USM was better, this would be an amazing school. I have come to love it so much over my time here. Not all appreciate it, but to me it has its quirks like any school. The problem is that, even at $18k for in-state and $32k for out-of-state, the value just is not there. Students are given minuscule financial aid packages and left holding the bag for the rest. Work study is held onto as thought it is a fine gem, leaving many students with low EFCs with no campus employment. The housing costs have decreased, thankfully, but the cost for food is higher than it should be for the quality. Students pay nearly as much to live in a brand new dorm as they do for one built in the 1960s that has not been painted since that time.
