UMA is committed to your success! To ensure students have a solid academic foundation, the Office of Advising utilizes placement testing to determine students’ level of skill in one or more academic areas. This allows UMA staff to identify the most appropriate courses for enrollment. Students may be waived from placement testing with appropriate test scores, previous college coursework, or other criteria.
UMA welcomes hundreds of transfer students each semester. In fact, the majority of our new students are transfer students! Whether you are coming in with a few courses or several semesters of credit, we will work with you to develop your educational plan and maximize your advance standing.
