Why You Should Choose UMM's Program
The University of Maine at Machias is New England's only public Environmental Liberal Arts college and is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
- UMM is a small campus so the faculty are used to providing individualized instruction. Our online courses are capped at 24 or 50 students.
- With a sizeable commuter population, UMM has experience with adult learners.
- UMM has been a leader in distance education in Maine for almost 20 years.
- UMM online courses focus on rigorous learning and skill acquisition, not rote completion of a checklist of courses.
- Can you say student satisfaction? Even unmatriculated students return to UMM distance education courses again and again.
- UMM faculty choose educational technology when it benefits the students, not just to add 'bells and whistles'.
- UMM works closely with the distance education resources across the U. Maine System so that the benefits of a small-campus environment combine with the advantages of multiple colleges.
- Your UMM diploma and transcript will be no different than those of an on-campus student.
