iGrad Financial Literacy

In partnership with the Finance Authority of Maine (FAME) and the University of Maine System, we are excited to offer financial literacy tools and resources through iGrad. You'll be able to see all your student loan information and access a database of national scholarships in addition to our available USM scholarships.


Sign up today — it's free!

With a wide range of both content and tools, iGrad financial literacy has something to offer anyone working on a monetary goal — whether it's paying for school, buying a house, or saving for retirement.

Sign up with iGrad today to personalize your account and start exploring quizzes, calculators, budgeting tools, a library of articles, and more. Current students will continue to have access after graduation, and free accounts are also available for parents, alumni, faculty, and staff.

Do you have specific questions about your USM bill or financial aid? Contact the Student Financial Services office at 207-780-5200.
