Maine state law requires students (all full-time students and part-time degree students) born after 1956 to provide proof of immunization or immunity to measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, and tetanus before attending classes. Documentation must be provided to the Registrar's Office in Augusta in order to comply.


All foreign nationals, including those with "F" or "J" student status, must report to the international student advisor as soon as possible after arrival in this country. Additionally, all must register with this advisor at the beginning of each academic year. Please contact the Advising Center at 621-3149 or 1-877-UMA-1234, Ext. 3149, in Augusta, for information about meeting UMA and U. S. Immigration and Naturalization service regulations.


A limited number of lockers are available on the Augusta campus (Richard J. Randall Student Center) for use by registered students on a first-come, first-served basis.  Students must supply their own locks and the University assumes no liability for items stored in the lockers.  All lockers must be emptied out by 5 p.m. on the last day of the semester, after which the University will remove the lock and transfer the contents of the locker to the Lost and Found.  The Lost and Found is located at the Enrollment Services Center in the Randall Student Center.  Contact: Office of Student Activities/Student Life in Augusta.


Except in cases of serious emergency, the offices cannot accept messages for students. Messages for faculty may be left in the college offices or on their office telephone voice mail. Students are encouraged to inform their children and child care providers of their schedule and whereabouts while on campus. Emergency messages should be directed to: Enrollment Services Center in Augusta, Admissions and Student Enrollment Services in Bangor.


UMA supports a policy of open campus recruiting. We believe that any legal organization offering career opportunities for University graduates should be granted the privileges of scheduling and holding student interviews on campus within the limits of available time and facilities. When granted such privileges, they should be considered authorized visitors to the University and entitled to the same rights and protections as are accorded to members of the University family under the provisions of existing policy regarding free speech and assembly and the Student Conduct Code.


Permission to operate and park a vehicle on the campus is a privilege granted by the University. There are reserved spaces for drivers with disabilities and University vehicles. All other vehicles must park in designated parking areas in order to keep roadways and passages open for emergency vehicles. Illegally parked vehicles will be towed. Parking stickers are available for students at the Augusta and Bangor campuses.  Parking areas are clearly marked. Parking overnight is by permission only. Contact the Office of Administrative Services in Augusta and Bangor.


The University of Maine at Augusta is dedicated to providing a safe and friendly environment for its community members and visitors to our campuses. While it is recognized that many pets are well behaved, there are people who may have allergies or fears that could cause a pet to interfere with the ability of those individuals to complete their work or their studies.

  • It is the policy of the University of Maine at Augusta that pets will not be allowed in University buildings. This policy does not apply to service animals brought to campus to provide assistance to persons with disabilities. 

  • All pets on University property must be kept on leashes at all times. 

  • Pets must not be left unattended while on University property, i.e. in automobiles or outside buildings. 

  • Owners of pets shall be held responsible for any personal or property damage inflicted by their pets. 

  • Owners or caretakers of pets must clean up after their pets.


Normally, the possession of weapons, firearms and/or ammunition is prohibited on any UMA campus. Possession of a valid concealed weapons permit authorized by the State of Maine is not an exemption under this policy.  This policy, however, does not deny possession of firearms and ammunition by duly authorized law enforcement officials when such possession is unavoidable.  Any employee violating this policy may face disciplinary action up to and including termination.  A student who violates this policy may face disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.  A visitor who violates this policy may be removed from the property and reported to police authorities. Questions concerning the authority of an employee or campus visitor to carry weapons, firearms or ammunition should be directed to the Office of Administrative Services in Augusta.  Questions concerning the authority of a student to carry weapons, firearms or ammunition should be directed to the Dean of Students in Augusta.


Students under the age of 17 must follow specific policies and procedures to enroll in University credit courses. Please contact the Registrar's Office in Augusta for information and the required forms.


(see Confidentiality)


When a student retakes a course, the most recent grade will be the grade used to compute the grade point average. The previous grade will remain on the record but will not be entered into the computation of the grade point average.  Please note:  As of July 1, 2011, a federal regulation was established stating students may not receive federal financial aid funding for more than one repetition of a previously passed course.  In most cases, a passing grade is defined as D- or higher or P for passing (for pass/fail course grading).  A review of repeated courses will generally be completed by financial aid after financial aid has been disbursed and may result in the reduction of financial aid.  Please pay attention to repeated courses and contact financial aid if you have questions.


A student is classified as a resident or a non-resident for tuition purposes at the time of admission to the University. Prospective students should contact the Office of Admissions and Records if they have a question on their residency status. Students enrolled as non-residents who have reason to believe their residence status has changed may contact the executive director of administrative services in Augusta who has full details of the current rules governing residence.
