A mother learns how to become a UMA student

UMA’s On-the-Spot Admit Days offer first-year, transfer and returning students the chance to complete the application process, get accepted and enroll in classes – all in one visit!

Several scholarships are available, and students who attend and register for classes will be placed in a drawing for one of three $1,000 scholarships.

Students can attend one of our On-the-Spot Admit Days from 10:00am – 6:00pm* at the Augusta or Bangor campus, or one of our nine locations statewide.
