Applying for admission is easy.

Whether you wish to attend full-time or part-time, applying to UMA is a simple four-step process. Just follow the directions below and if you have any questions call us at 1-877-862-1234.

Step One: Complete our Short Application Form

Submit our online application.

Or if you plan on applying to multiple schools within the University of Maine System, you may choose to submit the slightly longer University of Maine System application.

Step Two: Send UMA a $40 Application Fee

Checks should be made payable to UMA.

Step Three: Send to UMA your official transcripts or your GED/HiSET Test Scores

High School/GED/HiSET – If you have a copy of your transcripts or GED/HiSET scores, just attach them to your Application Form. Otherwise, call your high school or GED/HiSET Test Location and ask them to send transcripts or scores directly to the address below.

College – If you have taken any college classes, whether through high school aspirations, dual enrollment, or bridge programs, have them send an Official Transcript (no faxes or photocopies) directly to the address below.

Please Note: UMA does not require SAT scores, but they can be used to waive placement testing.

Step Four: Mail everything to:
