Financial Aid - Title IV, Scholarships & Other

Maine Media is committed to providing financial assistance to students attending our certificate or degree programs. Maine Media College was approved by the U.S. Department of Education to process Title IV funding effective February 2019. Title IV federal financial assistance may be applied to either the Professional Certificate in Visual Storytelling or the Master of Fine Arts degree at this time.

Your first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form. On the FAFSA® form you may enter Maine Media College as one of the schools you are interested in attending.  Once this is done, and you have completed your application, we will be able to let you know which loan or aid programs you may qualify for.

At this time Title IV funding is not available to participants of the Certificate in Collaborative Filmmaking. These students may contact the Registrar’s office for other financing options.


Return of Title IV Funds Policy

When students apply for financial aid, a statement is signed that the funds will be used for educational purposes only. Therefore, if students withdraw before completing the program, a portion of the funds received may have to be returned. Maine Media College will calculate the amount of funding to be returned to the Title IV HEA Federal programs according to the policies here.
