We're getting ready to welcome you back!

UMA will open for fall 2020 as scheduled on August 31. However, the completion of the semester will be conducted online after the Thanksgiving break. In preparation, UMA has developed and will implement a Safe Return Plan, consistent with University of Maine System principles, that will provide necessary health and safety precautions for students, faculty, and staff while offering students the best educational experience possible. Any change in the current situation that results in a change of this plan will be posted here and communicated to the UMA community.

The response to COVID-19 requires a change in the way that the University operates and our interactions as a University community. As a community that cares for each other, we strive to keep students, staff, and faculty safe during this coronavirus pandemic. Please read the UMA Safe Return Pledge, and consult these webpages for information about how we will go forward in fall 2020 and beyond.

Please be aware that UMA policies and practices are guided, and in some cases mandated, by the State of Maine’s Center for Disease Control (CDC) and by the University of Maine System. We fully expect policies to change regularly as circumstances change. Please bookmark this webpage, and consult these pages often for up-to-date information.
