UMA Student Health Insurance Plan

NOTICE OF NEW REQUIREMENT AND OPPORTUNITY REGARDING STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE 

Beginning with the fall semester of 2014, all campuses in the University of Maine System (UMS) will require proof of health insurance as a condition of enrollment for students who fall into specific categories (defined below).  This policy is intended to support students’ progress toward their academic goals by providing access to a reasonably priced Student Health Insurance Policy (SHIP).  This insurance requirement applies only to UMA students who fall into the following categories:*

  • All undergraduate students registered for 9 or more UMS credits in a fall or spring semester
  • All International students attending UMA on an F-1 visa
  • All UMA degree candidates in the following academic programs who are registered for 1 or more UMS credits in a fall or spring semester:**
  •  

    A.S. in Veterinary Technology

    A.S. in Nursing

    Certificate in Dental Assisting

    A.S. in Dental Assisting

    A.S. in Dental Hygiene

    B.S. in Dental Hygiene

    B.S. in Aviation

    B.S. in Nuring 1+3 Year UMA-UMFK

    *Students who reside outside of Maine during the applicable semester(s) of enrollment are exempt.

    **Does not apply to students in pre-majors seeking admission to these programs unless they are registered for 9 or more UMS credits in a fall or spring semester.

    PLEASE READ THIS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

    All students who meet the criteria described above will automatically be billed on their student account for the SHIP annual premium of $942.  Students who already have health insurance coverage and do not wish to participate in the SHIP will have an opportunity, starting July 7, 2014, to withdraw from this coverage and charge via an on-line waiver process.  Also starting on July 7, students who meet the criteria and wish to take advantage of the SHIP and/or have no other health insurance coverage can complete the on-line enrollment steps to proactively confirm their enrollment.  Timely enrollment will initiate access to their insurance ID card and benefits on the effective date of the policy (August 15), thus maximizing the value of the policy.  The deadline for waiving the SHIP is October 1, 2014. 

    UMA students who do not fall into the categories outlined above will not be required to show proof of health insurance, nor will they be eligible to enroll in the SHIP.

    Students participating in athletics and/or club sports should also contact Renee Grant, Student Life, at 621-3374, for further information about the insurance requirement for student athletes.

    The SHIP is administered by United Healthcare, Inc. via a contract with Harvard-Pilgrim HealthCare and makes use of their network of primary care providers, subspecialty providers, hospitals and other healthcare providers.  Click here for more information regarding the SHIP plan.  Following are some highlights:

  • Annual (8.15.14 – 8.14.15) premium is $942.00
  • Compliance with Affordable Care Act and American College Health Assoc. standards.
  • Unlimited maximum plan benefit
  • Prescription drug benefit with no deductible - up to maximum plan benefit
  • Preventive Care:  100% coverage in network; no deductible; includes physicals and immunizations
  • 24/7 confidential telephone access to insurance personnel
  •  

    For questions regarding the SHIP, please contact Student Financial Services by phone (207) 621-3412 or email UMAFA@maine.edu

    What Graduates Need to Know

     

    Applying for Graduation

    Students who wish to apply for candidacy for graduation must file a graduation card, or use the online Candidacy for Graduation Form, by December 1 for December completions and April 1 for May and August graduation. Students should meet with their faculty advisors first to avoid any unfortunate surprises in the spring; however, students are ultimately responsible for being aware of program requirements which are published in the UMA catalog. Information is also available through the Advising Center, College Offices, Academic Advisor, or University Center.

     

    Commencement Exercises:  Where, When, What, and Who

    Commencement is scheduled for Saturday, May 9, 2015.  All degree candidates must report to the Fort Western Room in the North Wing of the Augusta Civic Center by 8:45 a.m.  At that time, line up for the Exercises will begin and last-minute "marching orders" will be given.  Commencement Exercises will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m.; the length of Commencement is generally 2 hours.  It is suggested that you make arrangements ahead-of-time to meet your guests after the ceremony in a pre-arranged location. Please be aware that traffic delays can occur the closer you get to the Augusta Civic Center.  Graduates and guests may want to leave earlier to arrive on time for line up and seating.  Childcare is not provided.  If you have small children attending commencement, please provide for care for them during the ceremony.

    Commencement Exercises:  Where, When, What, and Who

    • Commencement is scheduled for Saturday, May 9, 2015, at the Augusta Civic Center.  Guests should enter the Civic Center through the main, front doors.
    • Commencement Exercises will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m.; the length of Commencement is generally 2 hours.  Guests will not be seated once the processional begins (when graduates march into the auditorium); late arrivals must wait until the processional ends.
    • Because of the size of the crowd, it is suggested that you make arrangements ahead-of-time to meet your graduate after the ceremony in a pre-arranged location.  Please be aware that traffic delays can occur the closer you get to the Augusta Civic Center.  Graduates and guests may want to leave earlier to arrive on time for line up and seating.

     

    Commencement Protocol

    The University of Maine at Augusta’s Commencement is an important, exciting, and proud day for the graduates, their families and friends, and for UMA’s faculty, administration, and staff.  It is the University’s desire that the tone of the commencement ceremony be one of honor, respect, and dignity.  Thus, behavior of the graduates and their guests should be consistent with the significance of the occasion.  To that end, we ask the following:

    • The ceremony will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m.  Guests should remain by their seats while the graduates enter.
    • No one is permitted to stand in the aisles or to block the view of another audience member.
    • Cell phones and pagers should be turned off.  When this is not feasible due to urgent circumstances, the device should be set to vibrate or soft tone.
    • It is requested that guests stay in their seats and not place themselves in the ceremony by drawing attention away from the graduates, calling directly to them, using noisemakers or signs, or approaching the graduates to take pictures.
    • Guests should remain by their seats until the graduates, faculty, and staff have all marched out of the auditorium.

     

    Seating

    • There is no limit on the number of guests per graduate.  Tickets are not required for admission.
    • Guests will not be seated during the processional; late arrivals must wait until the processional ends before being seated.
    • Elevators are available off of the main lobby to access the second level.

     

    Seating for Guests with Disabilities

    In order to have the ceremony go as smoothly as possible for guests, designated seating areas for individuals with disabilities are available. Family members and guests needing more information about accommodations should contact Ariel Cassista, for more information at 621-3350/1-877-862-1234, ext. 3350, or e-mail ariel.cassista@maine.edu, no later than May 1.

    Please note we are not able to seat entire families in the special seating designated areas; normally only one member of your party can accompany the guest requiring special seating.  In order to accommodate those who require this seating, additional guests must sit in the general seating areas.

    Wheelchair accessible seating and special seating for guests with mobility impairments, the elderly, and people with hearing and visual disabilities is available.
    A sign-language interpreter will be on the stage during the ceremony.  Folks needing the services of the interpreter should indicate this to an usher.

    Disability seating will be on a "first-come, first-serve basis;" seating cannot be reserved.

    Please arrive early.  We recommend that guests needing accommodations arrive by 9:30 a.m. to allow ample time to arrive, park at the Augusta Civic Center, and to find seating in the auditorium.  Handicapped parking is located near the Civic Center.

    Upon arrival to the Civic Center auditorium, guests needing special seating should approach an usher.  Ushers wear UMA blue stoles and nametags and will assist guests to the appropriate, designated seating areas.

    Wheelchairs are available to use at the Civic Center; however, they should be used to transport guests to their seats and immediately returned to the main lobby for others to use.

     

    A Special Word about Photography

    UMA is committed to ensuring that family and friends are able to hear the name of their graduate called and watch them receive their diploma as they cross the stage.


    For families who desire to take a photo during the ceremony, we strongly request that you follow the rules below in order to minimize the disruption to others:

    • Photos during the ceremony may only be taken from your seat or from the designated photography area located to the far right of the stage as indicated by the sign.
    • Please do not block the view of other guests.
    • Please be as quiet as possible as you move to take a photo, most especially if you are sitting in the metal bleachers.

    Please also know that there are three excellent alternatives to taking your own photos during the ceremony:

      • Arrangements have been made for professional photographers:  LifeTouch Studios will be present to take photos of the graduates, as each crosses the stage and as each stands in front of the logo banner after leaving the stage.  Proofs will be available about a week later and graduates should be contacted via email and given the web page address to view the proofs.
      • Families are welcome to take photos in front of the podium following the ceremony.
      • A special photography area has been set up in front of the Gazebo on the Commons, where the Commencement Reception will be held for all graduates and their families.
