We've been hard at work developing a stronger alumni program to better connect you to UMA and your former classmates and faculty members. As an alumnus/alumnae, you should already be receiving our e-newsletter, Moose News with updates and invitations to special UMA events. If you're not, it means we probably don't have your most current contact information. To stay connected, update your information here.

Mission Statement

The University of Maine at Augusta Alumni Association will unite alumni, the University, and local regions to assist the University in meeting its mission. The Alumni Association will be a link between current and future alumni by engaging alumni in planning and participating in events, and will promote university excellence, by providing career networking opportunities, encouraging campus involvement, and supporting community outreach.

 50th Anniversary Fund Brochure

Make a Gift to UMA »


Why should you give to UMA?

As an alum of UMA, you know how critical having enough financial aid means. More than ever, you can make a difference in the life of a student by supporting UMA's many scholarship and gift funds. The more we build our Annual Fund, the stronger we are, which means we can offer more to our students.

Approximately 82%* of UMA students rely on financial aid. Support from UMA’s family of alumni, parents and friends help make the availability of this financial aid possible.

Your support also brings opportunity to UMA’s students so that they can have the full educational experience they might not have otherwise, and even better, your gift is 100% tax-deductible.

As we approach our 50th Anniversary, please join the many alums, parents and friends of UMA who have given so generously to support our students and the University to make the next 50 years even more affordable to future students. Make a dream a reality by making a gift today.
Thank You!
