Visit USM

In light of evolving information about COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) and out of an abundance of caution, USM Admissions is suspending in-person, on-campus visits, and tours through April 3 for individuals interested in undergraduate and graduate programs.

Instead, we will host individuals and small groups via phone and online platforms. We are taking this action to ensure the safety and well-being of our visitors as well as the entire USM community. We will reassess as we learn more.

We offer a flexible, supportive, and convenient path to completing your degree.
