Financial Terms and Conditions

All students must complete the Financial Terms and Conditions (FTC) before enrolling in classes at any campus of the University of Maine System. The FTC may be accepted by going to your MaineStreet Student Center and clicking on the Financial Terms and Conditions link in the “To Do List.” The FTC is a legal agreement between the student/University of Maine System explaining the financial obligation of the student. Ensuring that students understand the financial commitment they are making when they register for courses is an important component of a student’s financial literacy and is also required by the Federal Bureau of Consumer Protection.
