Academics - Away Status

UMaine students temporarily registered for a semester or an academic year at another institution should fill out an “Away Registration” form. “Away” registration keeps the student as a fully enrolled University of Maine student while on Away status. This is important for student aid purposes and for maintaining enrollment in one’s degree program at UMaine. Students seeking to register “away” must be in good academic standing.

To ensure that the maximum number of credits transfer to the UMaine program from the “away” institution it is important that students plan “away” registrations carefully with their academic advisor and obtain the prior approval of the associate dean of their college. Grades earned while on “away” status normally do not appear on the UMaine transcript and do not affect the UMaine GPA.
