Program Philosophy USM provides financial aid to families with demonstrated need, or the difference between the cost of tuition and the financial contribution a family is able to afford. A family’s calculated contribution is determined by information presented on their financial aid application, tax returns, and other supporting documents. USM’s financial aid program cannot be used to solve a family’s financial difficulties. Exceptionally high living expenses, credit card debt, or other consumer debt may not be considered as allowable expenses when calculating a family’s demonstrated need.
How to Apply USM utilizes the services of Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) as our financial aid management system. Applicants must complete the online FAST application in order to be considered for a financial aid grant. Click here to begin the FAST application process.
