USM is one of the Best in the Northeast!

Welcome to the best of both worlds. We are a university large enough to provide the choices you're looking for today -- yet small enough to support your unique aspirations. Our three campuses are home to diverse academic communities where you can explore new ways to shape your future. Through internships, fieldwork and hands-on research, you'll gain the skills and knowledge you need to succeed in tomorrow's world.

The Office of Undergraduate Admission understands that applying to college, although exciting, can at times be a challenging process. It is our goal to assist in making each of the stages of your college application and selection experience smooth and positive.

News & Events

One of the many challenges adults face as they return to college is financing their education. The University of Maine System now has an Adult Degree Completion Scholarship Fund to help Maine people complete their academic studies—which may have begun years ago, but were not completed for some reason.
Undergraduate Admission is hosting two Accepted Student days on April 11th and 18th. Students will get the opportunity to tour Gorham and Portland; talk to faculty, staff, and students; and connect with their future Husky community!
Join the Class of 2018 Facebook group to connect with your future Husky classmates.
