Disability Services

Welcome to the Special Services office at the University of Maine at Machias.  UMM is committed to providing equal access to all students.  Integration of engaging teaching strategies and academic supports from our exceptional faculty and staff create a collaborative educational experience for all our students.

The Special Services office’s main focus is coordinating services for our students with permanent or temporary documented disabilities.  We extend reasonable accommodations for documented and requested academic and housing needs.  Overall, we are dedicated to supporting all students.  “Student Success” is our motto, and our individualized, supportive approach encourages students to advocate for themselves while developing the skills and empowerment to reach their academic and professional goals.
