Ranked List of the Most Afforable Maine Colleges

Out-of-state students looking to come into Maine to pursue higher education will find this list useful. While out-of-state tuition rates are always higher than in-state tuition rates, there could be several other expenses that are more expensive depending on where you live. Attending an out-of-state college with lower overall costs can allow for students to take courses that would not be available in-state, and to possibly make new friends and acquaintances they otherwise would never encounter by going to an in-state school. Browse the list below of Maine's colleges with the lowest out-of-state costs.
