Lowest Net Price

The NCES generates the net price statistic by subtracting the average amount of financial aid a full-time undergrad student receives (from scholarships and grants) from the total cost of attendance.

  • University of Maine at Fort Kent ($13,037)

Highest Graduation Rates

How well do these three schools do at turning first-time students into graduates? One way the NCES arrives at an answer to that question is by calculating the number of full-time undergrad students who graduate within 150% of the normal time it takes to complete their program, e.g., those who fully complete a 2-year associate's degree within three years or a 4-year bachelor's degree in six years. The NCES reports the following graduation rates for 2015:

  • University of Maine at Presque Isle (47% graduation rate)
  • Northern Maine Community College (42% graduation rate)
  • University of Maine at Fort Kent (40% graduation rate)
