Once a student is accepted as an incoming exchange student, s/he can register for UMaine courses. Incoming exchange students are advised by the Study Abroad Advisor. Exchange students do not need a registration PIN. The Study Abroad Advisor manually registers each student and verifies the exchange student has completed the required prerequisites for each class. The advisor register students for lower-level courses and liaisons with academic departments and colleges to request special permission on behalf of the student to enroll in upper-level classes which have prerequisites or restrictions.
Start by browsing available courses in MaineStreet and then create a Wish List of courses. Then email your Study Abroad Advisor at firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate that the Wish List is ready for review. The Study Abroad Advisor will register students for the lower-level courses or request special permission for upper-level courses as needed. Exchange students must register for a minimum of 12 credits and a maximum of 15 credits. Students can register in only one online class at UMaine but exchange students are strongly advised to register for only in-person courses in order to experience the UMaine academic environment to its fullest.
