MACHIAS - The University of Maine at Machias has great financial news for certain students seeking a higher education.

It's among those in the UMaine system that will offer a debt reduction plan to cover all tuition and fees for eligible students.

 

Maine students who qualify for a Federal Pell Grant as part of their financial aid award will be able to attend the school next year without paying out of pocket tuition and standard fees.

It's also being offered to students at UMaine campuses in Presque Isle, Fort Kent or Augusta.
