Educational Opportunity Tax Credit

The following list of associate and bachelor's degrees listed by college or university have been identified as STEM degrees for purposes of the Maine refundable educational opportunity tax credit. Non-STEM degrees may qualify for the nonrefundable educational opportunity tax credit.

A degree in science, technology, engineering and mathematics ("STEM") means an associate or bachelor's degree with a major (or if no major is awarded, an equivalent concentration) as recognized by the participant's accredited Maine community college, college or university limited to the following courses of study:

  1. Animal, food or plant science, archeology, biology, chemistry, computer and information sciences, environmental science,  physics/physical, earth or marine sciences or registered nursing/nursing sciences;
  2. Aeronautical engineering, architectural engineering technology, biotechnology, clinical or medical technologies, communications technology, computer technology, construction engineering technology, drafting and design technology, electrical engineering technology, electromechanical engineering technology, science technology or telecommunications technology;
  3. Chemical, civil, construction, electrical, forest, industrial, mechanical, naval or surveying engineering; or
  4. Economics, mathematics or statistics.

For more information, see Rule 812.

Other degrees may also qualify for the refundable credit but have not yet been identifed as STEM related. If your degree is not listed below, and you believe your degree is a STEM qualified degree, file Form 1040ME, related schedules, worksheets and other information supporting the credit as a qualified, refundable STEM degree. We will review the information you include with your return. You will be notified of any changes made to your return.
