Annual Tuition Raffle


Take part in the UMaine Alumni Association’s annual Black Bear Tuition Raffle! If you win, you can use the prize to benefit your favorite UMaine undergraduate–a family member, a friend’s child, a stranger in need, or even yourself!

The prize–full tuition to cover 30 credit hours*–will be awarded at a public drawing in May 2020. Based on current in-state tuition rates, the dollar value of those 30 credit hours will be $8,790!

Anyone 18 years of age or older may enter. We suggest a $5-per-ticket contribution to help the Alumni Association continue this popular opportunity. Along with covering the winner’s tuition payment, the raffle’s proceeds will help the Alumni Association sponsor student groups and activities through our Student Ambassadors Program.

Tickets for the 2020 Tuition Raffle will be sent out in February 2020. Sign up below to receive your tickets, and be notified when the raffle opens.
