Happy Classroom


If you are a qualified student, we encourage you to apply for admission.  Many decisions are made on a rolling basis, and each application is considered carefully.

If you expect to receive financial aid and/or enter a degree program, you must apply for admission through one of the seven UMS campuses.

Apply on-line to the University of Maine at Augusta.

Click here if you are a non-traditional student who wants to apply online to one of the other UMS campuses.

All admissions application materials, for any UMS campus should be mailed to:

Have copies of your official transcripts sent directly to the University from all of the schools you have previously attended, including: high school, adult education, GED test scores (students can send a copy of their own scores) and previous colleges. Click here to download the UMA Transcript Request Form.

Note: High school and adult education transcripts are required of any student with fewer than 60 credits completed at the college level.


Apply as early as you can!

Admission deadlines vary from one campus to another and even with certain degree programs.  Check with the admissions office of the campus to which you are applying if you are worried about deadlines.  Generally, it takes about six weeks to complete the admission and financial aid application processes, from start to finish.

Application fees: Most campuses charge $40.00 for each application submitted.

Application Assistance:The Maine Educational Opportunity Center can provide some hands-on assistance with both applications and the financial aid forms. Teri Morse, the Rockland MEOC representative, holds appointment hours in Rockland on Mondays.  You may schedule a time with her through the URock office, or call her directly at 1-800-281-3703 to schedule an appointment in Rockland.
