Summer 2020 Applications due May 11th. Fall 2020 Applications due August 24th.


As of March 23, 2020, all classes taking place on campus or at a UMA Center will be transitioned to an online or distance modality. Please contact your instructor if you have questions about how the class will continue to run for the remainder of the semester. In the event that on-campus offices and services shut down due to COVID-19, our office will operate remotely. We will have access to our emails and any voicemails that come through during that time. Please leave us a message via email or voicemail and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
