An individual applying for admission to The University of Maine must satisfy the requirements for admission to the specific academic program of interest. Each program sets forth specific academic requirements for academic coursework at the high school level. The general university requirements include the reporting of Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Test (ACT) scores. To determine academic preparation, applicants are expected to furnish high school and (for transfer applicants) post-secondary transcripts. Applicants still enrolled in high school are also expected to submit a guidance counselor’s recommendation.
Additional specifications relating to the admissions process are detailed on the admissions application. Request for accommodation in the application review may be initiated by the individual who needs accommodation, and should be brought to the attention of the Admissions Office and Director of Disability Support Services. A large type application and a computer disk version of the application are available for Windows or Macintosh from the Admissions Office upon request. Classroom accommodations are a separate process from Admission. Please see Registration with Disability Support Services.
