Step 1: Activate your MaineStreet account

Students accepted to UMM should plan to regularly check their university email and MaineStreet portal. This is how you will receive important information from Admissions, Financial Aid, Housing, and other campus offices. You can find steps on how to activate your accounts on the Portal website.

Need help activating your account? Contact IT Support Services at 207.581.2506.

Step 2: Apply for Financial Aid

To be considered for financial aid, you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). New: Effective for the 2020-2021 academic year, UMM applicants will use the University of Maine school code, 002053. Your Machias campus affiliation and degree program of choice will not change as a result of using the UMaine school code.

If you have questions about how to apply, please visit our financial aid website or contact the Office of Financial Aid at 207.255.1203.

Step 3: Confirm your enrollment with a deposit

Enrollment deposits have been reduced from $150 to $50.

To reserve a spot and ensure that you can enroll in classes for Fall 2020, we require accepted students to send a $50 deposit. We accept deposits online via the MaineStreet portal. Watch this video tutorial to learn how to pay online. 

More information about how to pay online can be found here.
