Welcome to Accepted Students

Congratulations and welcome to the UMaine Black Bear Community! We’re thrilled that you will be joining us soon!

Wondering What To Do Next?

  • Confirm your Enrollment!
    To reserve your place at UMaine, please complete the confirmation form that was included with your acceptance letter and return it with your $150 deposit. You can also call the Admissions Office to pay your deposit over the phone with a credit card. At this time, confirmation deposits cannot be paid online. Your confirmation deposit is the key to receive important new student information.

    • For students starting in the fall semester:
      The confirmation deposit is due by May 1st, or within two weeks if you are accepted after this date. Enrollment deposits may be refunded upon written request through May 1st. (Deposits are not refundable after this date.)
    •  For students starting in the spring semester:
      The confirmation deposit is due by January 1st, or within two weeks if you are accepted after this date. Enrollment deposits may be refunded upon written request through January 1st. (Deposits are not refundable after this date.)
  • Activate your Accounts
    Students accepted to UMaine should plan to regularly check their university email and MaineStreet portal. This is how you will receive important information from Admissions, Financial Aid, Housing, and other campus offices.
  • Apply for Financial Aid
    To be considered for financial aid, you need to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA must be received by the federal processing center by March 1st to receive priority consideration. Please visit the Office of Student Financial Aid webpage for more detailed information about applying for financial aid. Check out UMaine’s 2014-2015 FAFSA page for tips and other helpful information about filing.

Join us for an Accepted Student Day!

If you are as excited to meet us as we are to meet you, come to one of our Accepted Student Days. Once on campus, you and your family will have the opportunity to talk with current UMaine students and incoming classmates and find out even more about the university. Presentations about academic programs and financial aid availability are among the day’s offerings.
