Academic Angle

This section covers the steps to sign up for classes at UMM! We’re dedicated to helping our students achieve their educational goals. Feel free to reach out to the Admissions Office with any questions, or for help connecting with an academic advisor.

Enrollment Deposit 

Submitting your $50 enrollment deposit secures your space at UMM and initiates the class registration process. You can submit the deposit online using the “Pay My Deposit” link in your MaineStreet Student Center. For further information or assistance, please contact the Admissions Office at 207.255.1318 or ummadmissions@maine.edu

University Online Accounts 

It is very important for new students to activate and start using their online accounts, including their MaineStreet Student Portal and their maine.edu Gmail account. You must use these accounts to access important communications about registration, student financial aid and student billing.  For detailed information on account activation, please visit our Student How-Tos page.  You may also contact the IT Support Center via chat to troubleshoot any issues.

Financial Responsibility Statement 

All new students are required to complete the Financial Responsibility Statement, located on the “To-Do List” in the MaineStreet Student Service Center.  Course registration cannot be initiated until this has been completed. For more information, visit umaine.edu/stuaid/aid-basics/financial-responsibility-statement or contact the Student Financial Aid Office at ummfinaid@maine.edu or via chat through our UMaine partner at umaine.edu/stuaid.

Navigate 

Whether you’re overwhelmed by college or excited about what’s ahead, life is better when your to-dos are organized at your fingertips. Navigate is a free mobile app (a desktop version is also available) that will help you thrive at UMM. The Navigate app allows you to view your class schedule, make appointments with your advisor, see reminders and access resources at the push of a button! If you have a smart phone you can download from the App Store or Google Play to get started. Visit umaine.edu/navigate for more information. 

Class Scheduling and Advising 

We are here to help you get the schedule that ensures you will graduate on time! UMM is divided into three divisions: Arts and Letters, Environmental and Biological Sciences, and Professional Studies. After receiving your enrollment deposit, an advisor from your division will reach out to help you build a class schedule. If you’re not sure what division your major is under, visit the Academics site.

Advanced Placement and Transfer Credits 

AP or Transfer Credits are evaluated and posted within the Transfer Credit Report on MaineStreet after students have been accepted. If you have any questions regarding Transfer Credits, please contact the Registrar’s Office at ummreg@maine.edu.

Academic Support and Enrichment Programs

The University of Maine offers several academic support services to assist students with coursework. Please feel free to check out some of these resources below:
