Important Notices

The 2020-2021 Tuition Waiver Program (Foster Care) application will be available March 2 instead of February 1 to give students more time to obtain proof of acceptance or enrollment before they apply. 

Help students get ready to submit an application by making sure they:

  1. File the 2020-2021 FAFSA before March 1
  2. Obtain an admissions letter from a University of Maine System campus, Maine Community College System campus, or Maine Maritime Academy before March 1

Tuition Waiver applications will be available March 1, 2020. The completed application must be mailed- it will not be accepted by fax, email or hand delivery. The Tuition Waiver application is short- just two pages to fill out:

  • Page 1 (required): Student demographics (SSN, DOB, name, address, phone, email address), intended enrollment institution, JMG information (if applicable), and student signature
  • Page 2 (optional):  Authorization to release information to a third party (for example to a parent, guardian, spouse, etc.)

Please help us spread the word about the application date change and help your students get ready. Please contact FAME if you have any questions.
