Academic Support

When you need help, contact us. Our staff and advisors are always happy to help you succeed in college.

Additionally, we’ve found these sites to be helpful for many students:

If you need help using Mainestreet, Blackboard, Gmail, or navigating your Student Portal or the UMA website, we have created several short videos that will walk you through the process.  All the videos can be found here.  We are continually adding new videos so keep checking this site for updated videos.
