The University of Maine System has created a free E-mail account for you. University faculty and staff will be sending you an increasing number of important communications by E-mail. If you don't have a computer or internet connection at home, computers are available at UMA campuses plus ITV sites and University College centers throughout the state. Any E-mail we send you will go to the address that was automatically created for you when you registered for classes. However, you will not be able to send or receive E-mail at your new account until it is activated. To activate your account, and to find out what your new E-mail address is, go to Click on account activation. You will be asked to enter your identification number and activation code. You can obtain your activation code by contacting the Technology Support Center at 1-800-696-HELP (4357.)  You will also be asked to create a password. Later, if you should forget your password, you will be able to retrieve it if you can answer three questions (or cues) that are unique to you. Please take a few minutes to think about appropriate questions before you activate your account and create your password. One question could be "my mother's maiden name." Enter her maiden name as the answer. Other suggestions are your dog or cat's name, a favorite food or place, a favorite relative's name or a family member's birthday. From you may go to a "forwarding" page where you can arrange to have all of your university E-mail forwarded to a home account or you may go to the University's Web-based E-mail service, gmail. Contact: Technical Support Center at 1-800-696-HELP (4357).


The friendly, trained Enrollment Services Center staff is available to provide all students and the public with general information and assistance with admissions, financial aid, registration, and payment. When in doubt, this is a good place to start with your questions. Contact: Enrollment Services Center in Augusta.


The Office of Equal Opportunity provides information on the University's policy and procedures for promoting equal opportunity for all students to succeed in their college education. This office also provides information on the University's non-discrimination policy, including sexual harassment. Copies of the University's policies and procedures for complaints are available also. Also, see the policies and procedures section in this handbook. Contact: Sheri Stevens, equal opportunity officer, at her office in Augusta.


The Augusta campus is fortunate to have two indoor dedicated spaces for the exhibition of art, and acres of rolling land for installation of outdoor sculpture. The Charles Dana Danforth Gallery in Jewett Hall extends the classroom boundaries with exciting, quality exhibits by artists with national and international reputations. This gallery also serves the cultural needs of the Central Maine community. There are five to seven exhibits in the Danforth Gallery annually with many presentations and discussions by the artists who are exhibiting their work. The Bennett D. Katz Library also contains exhibit space that is focused on the work of Maine artists. These exhibits change on a regular basis. Students are encouraged to attend the opening receptions, lectures, presentations, as well as spend their free time relaxing and enjoying the exhibits. Contact: Robert Rainey, director of the Charles Danforth Gallery.
