The University of Maine at Farmington: the Affordable Alternative

Named a "Best Value School"
You already know the University of Maine at Farmington was named a "Best College" 16 years in a row by U.S.News & World Report (2013–1998).
But did you know the University of Maine at Farmington was also recognized by U.S.News as one of its "Great Schools at Great Prices" for two consecutive years? (2013, 2012). According to U.S.News, the higher the quality of the program and the lower the cost, the better the deal.
