Overview

The Office of Registration & Scheduling Services supports the instructional mission of the University by providing key services to students, faculty, academic and administrative departments, and to the public. Services include record management; course, classroom, and final exam scheduling; student registrations; grade processing; transcript issuance; ensuring FERPA compliance; recording such critical functions as academic honors, sanctions, dismissals, and much more.

USM offers courses throughout the calendar year. Our robust, traditional fall and spring semesters are complemented by the shorter summer and winter terms. USM strives to provide plentiful course options year-round for students to make continued degree progress.

Summer Session
With nearly 500 course offerings, both on campus and online, in condensed formats ranging from one to seven weeks, Summer provides an opportunity for students to get the courses and credits they need to make continuous progress. In addition to traditional courses, a variety of innovative institutes and conferences are sponsored during the summer months, an opportunity to try something not offered during fall and spring. Contact us by email at registerusm@maine.edu or online at usm.maine.edu/reg/summer.
 
Winter Session
Winter courses are offered primarily online during the break between fall and spring semesters. This abbreviated term provides an opportunity for students to accelerate their degree progress. Contact us by email at registerusm@maine.edu or online at usm.maine.edu/reg/winter.

Early College
The USM Early Study–Aspirations Program offers opportunities for high school students to take college courses to enrich their high school experience. The program is designed to help students supplement, not supplant, the academic program of the high school. Academic requirements must be met, and permission from high school and parent(s) is expected. Financial assistance is available.
