Maine Now Offers Free Community College for Young Graduates – Boston News, Weather, Sports

BANGOR, Maine (AP) – Maine’s plan to offer two years of free community college goes into effect.

The Maine Legislature approved a plan, backed by Democratic Gov. Janet Mills, to provide a free community college for students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program applies to high school graduates born in 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023.

The community college system said in a statement that the program also applies to students who have recently earned the equivalent of a high school diploma, such as a high school equivalency test. It pays tuition and fees at Maine’s seven community colleges for up to two years after applying for federal and state grants.

The system states that students who qualify for maximum scholarship aid are allowed to use additional scholarship funds to pay for expenses such as books and supplies.
