Financing Your Education

Committed to Affordability

UNE offers a Merit Scholarship program that bases gift money awards on your level of academic achievement. We also offer institutional grants and scholarships. If the financial aid you are awarded does not cover all of your direct costs, we help you find ways to fund the remaining balance.

Types of Aid


As you consider the cost of higher education, it is worthwhile to also consider the return you receive on your investment. At UNE, we believe your degree should be valuable and enduring. 

UNE has been included in the 2024 edition of The Princeton Review’s Best 386 Colleges guide. This highly selective list includes only the top 15% of four-year colleges and universities in the U.S. We've also been recognized in U.S. News & World Report and MONEY® Best Colleges lists. 

This recognition translates to student success.
