UMA Bangor

LewistonUMA's Bangor Campus sits nestled on 43 acres of land tucked between Union Street and Hammond Street across from the Bangor International Airport.

UMA Bangor offers over 40 degree programs and a full range of student services, including tutoring and a math and writing lab. It has an active Student Government which engages students and offers many opportunities for leadership both in and outside of the classroom.

The campus facilities are continually being upgraded, and offer modern science and computer labs.  In recent years, the campus library moved to newly renovated space, Admissions was relocated to provide a convenient one-stop model to include all Enrollment Services, new campus Green space was created, and the Dental Hygiene Clinic moved to a state-of-the-art new facility.

Camden Hall, UMA-BangorUMA Bangor is a vibrant campus that offers accessible, practical degrees to the region. The original idea was a nurturing environment that supports students of all ages and backgrounds as they pursue their educational dreams. That hasn’t changed, and won’t change, as we look forward to an exciting future for the university and most importantly, our students.

Admissions & Student Enrollment Services

Hello! We are your first stop on campus and you will probably visit us often! We’re happy to discuss our degree programs with you and help you through the admissions process. We’ll also help you understand and complete your application for financial aid, explain the billing process, collect your immunization records and answer your questions about UMA policies and procedures. Want to tour the campus? We can arrange that, too. We’re in Lewiston Hall, 65 Texas Avenue, and we’re open Mondays through Fridays, 8:00 am until 4:30 pm. Phone: 207.262.7800, option 3; Fax: 207.262.7801.

Steps to Becoming a Student

You’re ready to start college: congratulations! What do you need to do?

  • Download UMA’s short application form, fill it out and send it with a $40 application fee to the Application Processing Center, PO Box 412, Bangor, ME 04402-0412.
  • Contact your high school to send your official high school transcript to the same address.
  • If you’ve previously attended college, contact the Records Office to request an official, original transcript be sent to the same Processing Center address You’ll need to fill out a form or write a letter to get most official college transcripts.
  • For some of our degree programs, unless you have transfer credit in English and math, you need to take placement tests before an admissions decision can be made. Contact us to schedule your testing at 262-7800, opt. 3, or 262-7802.
  • File your financial aid application at right away! Don’t wait to hear back from Admissions; financial aid processing can take two to three months.
  • Collect your immunization records. State of Maine law requires you to show proof of two MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) immunizations and a diphtheria/tetanus shot within the past ten years (tetanus will have to be current within five years for majors in health-related fields).
  • Contact us if you have questions!

Once you are admitted, you’ll receive a letter with information on the next steps you should take.

Click here for more information about the writing center.

Our Center is funded by UMA Bangor.  It is a campus unit designed to help students achieve the essential learning associated with various departments at the College.

We  provide students with tools with which they can enrich their lives by mastering critical thinking skills.  We  emphasize critical analysis, problem finding and solving, and fluency and flexibility in one’s thought process and verbal expression. Here at the Center, we wish to create a climate that encourages students to question assumptions and to, develop responsibility for their own learning.  We support them as they solve writing problems creatively, and we adapt instruction to provide for individual differences, fostering a student-centered approach.  We employ a wide range of resources to engage the imagination of our students,  and, most important, to  expand and extend the learning experiences of students while focusing on their future employment needs.

When students take ownership of their writing, through drafting and peer and teacher conferencing, their writing becomes more personally rewarding as well as more technically proficient.   We provide students with full services and resources during our open hours.  In order to do so, we are obligated to be staffed during our open hours to accommodate at least two scheduled appointments, 1-2 additional walk-in sessions, and prearranged class visit/workshop commitments. We emphasize the attainment of skills such as critical thinking, becoming self sufficient seekers of knowledge that is associated with life-long learning, and transferring informational skills that are necessary for achieving success in our complicated society.

The Writing Center is located at 214 Belfast and the phone number is 262-7753.  We will be open 9:30 am-4:30 pm Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, Wednesday 9:30 am-3:30 pm and Friday 10:00 am-2:30 pm. However, we will be flexible regarding time and will accommodate the schedule to meet the needs of the students at UMA Bangor.

The Writing Center is a resource you should use to help you improve your writing.  The Center is for both inexperienced and experienced writers who are encouraged to take full advantage of the Center’s services.  The staff can help you invent, organize, and revise your documents to meet the specific requirements established during class. Take the time to become familiar with this resource and use it regularly.  Please note:  To improve the effectiveness of the writing consultation, set up an appointment with a consultant a day or two before the assignment is due.  To further facilitate effective writing consultations, students can drop off papers as long as they sign up for a 15 to 20 minute writing consultation at the same time.   The Writing Center is not an editing service.  When you attend a session, you will sit down with the consultant and have a 15 to 20 minute conversation about how to improve your writing.  Together we will address specific needs by helping you to see where you need to enhance your writing.

Your Professor may provide you with referral forms which will help the consultants understand and therefore, address relevant issues relating to your assignment.

How a writing consultation works:

A writing consultation is an interaction between the writing consultant and the author,  It requires that both be physically present.  For that reason, a student cannot drop off an essay and pick it up later.  However, we have instituted a new procedure whereby a student may drop off their work as long as they make an appointment to sit with the consultant after a day or so for a consultation.  These consultations may last between 5 to 30 minutes.

Stage one (pre-text):

Find a table in the consulting area of the Center for your session. Sometimes students want to work at a computer and the consultant will sit with them. During this stage, the consultant will use the referral form from the Professor or have the author fill out the Writing Task Report.  This report is meant to establish an interpersonal relationship between the consultant and the author. The author signs into the Writing Lab. The questions on these reports require the author to explain the writing situation, or in other words, the criteria that will define the success or failure of the author’s written performance.  In the absence of a written explanation of the assignment, the writing consultant will work from the author’s explanation.  At this time the consultant will ascertain where the author is in the writing process, when the assignment is due, any specific requirements that their Professor wants included in his writing and if anything in particular is giving the author trouble. The consultants may ask the client about what process appeals to them most and will clearly explain how the process works before the start of the session.

Stage two (text):

After the reports have been completed, the writing consultant will either read or have the author read the essay (often this is done out loud). The consultant may stop when they want to discuss some aspect of the writing.  The writing consultant will take notes, and afterward, discuss the relevant issues she or he has identified.  During this discussion, the consultant will coach the author, providing explanations and suggestions that will help the author revise.   It is helpful for the author to bring two typed copies of his work.  This “pens off” approach is essential because the author must own the text, completing his or her own work.  If the consultants edit the text, the author will not learn from the experience and will no longer be the “author” of their own work.  We encourage the author to write the paper he has started and not have the consultant write the paper they have in mind. At this stage, the consultants may show the author where to find answers to questions regarding grammar, punctuation and documentation in handbooks located on the bookshelves and on-line.  For students with special needs and disabilities, the Writing Center has software that will help authors to create and visualize webs as well as create outlines-INSPIRATION, write essays by speaking into a microphone- Dragon Natural Speaking and read the author’s writing to them- READ TO ME.

Stage three (post-text):

Writing consultants will articulate specific actions authors can take to improve their essays and their writing practices in general.  Central to this stage is summarizing what has been covered and what the author should do next.  This approach encourages the author to continue drafting or revising by providing a clear set of goals the author can pursue.  Once these suggestions have been addressed, the author is encouraged to return to the Center for additional help.
After providing explicit goals for the author, the consultant will complete the “Course Work Completed Report” which will be kept on file and entered into a database.  The information in this database is later used to complete the Writing Center Activity Report.

If a student is unclear about what constitutes their assignment, or if the consultant believes that further guidance from the Professor would be helpful in giving the author our best effort, the consultant will notify the Professor of the student’s attendance at the Center.  On this notification sheet, the consultant explains the session with the student and asks the Professor to explain what they would like to see the student achieve in their next visit to the Writing Center.
If there is a need for further sessions, the consultant will set up an appointment using the appointment sheets that are in a container on the door of the Center.
