Maine

Higher education in Maine is regulated by the same department that regulates K-12 education in the state, the Maine Department of Education. This department provides ample resources for students on the benefits of going to college, planning for college, online learning opportunities, and means of paying for college. As the costs of higher education continue to rise around the country, Maine public universities have taken a stand recently against rising costs. Trustees at the University of Maine System, which includes the state’s seven public university campuses, voted in the summer of 2012 to freeze tuition for the first time in 25 years, according to the Nashua Telegraph. This is a significant move, considering Maine and the rest of New England are home to some of the most expensive public and private higher education institutions in the nation.
