Applying for admission is easy.

Whether you wish to attend full-time or part-time, applying to UMA is a simple three-step process. Just follow the directions below and if you have any questions call us at 1-877-862-1234.

Step One: Complete our Short Application Form

Submit our online application.

Or if you plan on applying to multiple schools within the University of Maine System, you may choose to submit the slightly longer University of Maine System application.

Step Two: Send to UMA your official transcripts or your GED/HiSET Test Scores

High School/GED/HiSET – If you have a copy of your transcripts or GED/HiSET scores, just attach them to your Application Form. Otherwise, call your high school or GED/HiSET Test Location and ask them to send transcripts or scores directly to the address below.

College – Contact any colleges where you have taken courses and have them send an Official Transcript (no faxes or photocopies) directly to the address below.

Please note: For you, these transcripts may also include Joint Service Transcripts (JST) or Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) transcripts. To have those sent directly to UMA, please address them to:

University of Maine at Augusta
Registrar’s Office, ATTN: Bethany Vigue
46 University Drive
Augusta, ME 04330

Step Three: Mail everything to:

Application Processing
University of Maine System
PO Box 412
Bangor, ME 04402-0412

At this point in the process, you may want to apply for your VA educational benefits. For more information, please contact our School Certifying Official (SCO) Laurie Krzywda at 207.621.3458

And that’s it – unless you would also like to apply for Financial Aid
