Quick Facts
UMA on Social Media
With approximately 5,000 students, UMA is the third largest university in the University of Maine System. Below are some quick facts on our institution, with much more information available elsewhere on this site.

Our mission

The University of Maine at Augusta, a regional state university, provides baccalaureate and select associate degrees to meet the educational, economic and cultural needs of Central Maine. Based on a common liberal arts core for all degree programs, UMA delivers professional programs to non-traditional, traditional and place-bound students.

Our campuses

In addition to our main campus in Augusta, we also serve students at our campus in Bangor (University College of Bangor) and at nine University College centers and 56 receiving sites in virtually every corner of the state.

Our academic programs

UMA has distinguished itself by offering top-quality, career-focused degree programs designed for today’s workplace.

UMA today offers 18 different baccalaureate programs that include numerous opportunities for specialized concentration within a major. We also offer select associate degrees in eleven different programs as well as 13 different certificate programs.

Our student population

With our multiple campuses and locations and our array of professional programs, the University of Maine at Augusta attracts a unique mix of recent high school graduates and adults returning to the classroom. All are enriched by the interaction between young and older students.

UMA is especially noted for its experience and success working with adult students, many who enter college after many years away from a classroom. UMA faculty and staff understand the special challenges of these adult students, who often need to juggle family and work responsibilities while attending college.

Our graduates

The majority of our graduates leave UMA with a baccalaureate degree in a professional field of study that meets a specific state or regional economic need. Moreover, UMA graduates overwhelmingly stay in Maine, where many go on to become leaders in their profession and their community.
