A student meeting with a university staff member

Adult & transfer students interested in applying for the Spring 2019 semester have an opportunity to get an immediate admission decision during a 30-minute meeting with one of our counselors. Applying to the University of Southern Maine (USM) is now free.

Step 1: Select an appointment
Completing applications and gathering supporting materials such as transcripts can take some time. Please consider your schedule in the coming weeks when you select your 30-minute appointment.

Step 2: Submit your application and supporting materials
At least 72 hours (3 days) before your appointment, submit your completed application and supporting materials. Sealed transcripts from your high school and/or previous college(s) attended can be brought to your On-the-Spot Decision Day appointment. Don't forget — applying to USM is free.

Step 3: Attend your On-the-Spot Decision Day appointment
Meet with a university admissions counselor at your selected date and time. We will review your application materials and provide an instant decision on your admission.

Please email us or call 207-780-5670 if you have questions about our On-the-Spot Decision Days, or if you prefer to set up a general appointment to discuss your undergraduate options.

We look forward to seeing you there!
