Online Orientation to Distance Learning »


Orientation is an opportunity for students to get to know UMA and to prepare for a successful college experience. At orientation, students can:

  • learn about UMA's student resources, policies, and procedures
  • meet other students, the faculty, and staff
  • participate in information and skill building workshops
  • ask questions and express concerns


Orientation is for ALL students new to UMA, whether they are: returning adults, transfer students, or recent high school graduates; attending on campus or attending at centers, sites, or via technology; and, in degree programs or just taking a class.

Orientations are offered at both of UMA's campuses (Augusta and Bangor), and at most of the University College Centers (Bath-BrunswickEllsworth, Rockland, Rumford-Mexico, Saco, and South Paris).  Those students taking online classes are encouraged to also view University College Learning Services' Online Orientation to Distance Learning.  In addition, specialized orientation programs for students in the architecture or nursing programs are offered. Students should contact the College of Arts and Sciences for information on the architecture orientation and the College of Professional Studies for information on the nursing orientation.

Notification of an upcoming orientation is mailed approximately three weeks before classes start to all students new to UMA. Students should contact their nearest campus or center for additional information.
