Summer Orientation / Maine Hello for First Year Commuters ( Recent High School Grads )


Are you a recent high school graduate  ?    Starting your first year in college ?    Will not be living on campus in the residence halls



You are part of a relatively small group of 18-19 first year students  who have chosen to not live on campus in UMaine residence halls.  Most but not all FY Commuters are commuting from their  family home and most ( but not all) commute within 30 miles of the UMaine campus .   But regardless of  where  off campus you live and whether you are living with your parents  roommates or alone  you are a FY Commuter.  As a Commuter at UMaine you are part of a large group ( 63% of our undergraduates are commuters )  who  commute to the UMaine  classes.  As a commuter student all the services and programs of CNTSP are available to you.  And as a First year student , the First Year Center also provides services , support and programs designed to assist you in  your first year in college .

The First Year Experience  (FYE)  and Commuter and Non Traditional Programs ( CNTSP )  are collaborating to bring you some special services  at UMaine.

The First Year Center is located in Androscoggin Hall and is a go-to place for any first-year student who needs any kind of assistance. Whether you have a personal problem, an academic problem, or just need someone to talk to, we’re here for you! For more information about our services and resources available to first-year students, check out our website:

The Commuter and Non-Traditional Student Programs (CNTSP) assist commuter and non-traditional students in connecting with the UMaine community and successfully pursuing their academic goals. An example is through the M-Project, an exciting and interactive program that matches new students with experienced students to guide them through their first year on the UMaine campus. For more information, check out our
