ROCKLAND — The University of Maine at Augusta will be offering four “On-the-Spot Admit Days” during August at its 11 locations statewide (Augusta, Bangor, Brunswick, East Millinocket, Ellsworth, Houlton, Lewiston, Rockland, Rumford, Saco, and South Paris).
“On-the-Spot Admit Days” will be held at UMA Rockland Center, 4th floor of the Rockland Breakwater Building, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on:
Monday, August 5
Wednesday, August 14
Tuesday, August 20
Monday, August 26
UMA Admissions representatives will be available to help recent high school graduates, new and transfer students, and returning students complete their application; take a placement test (if needed); start the financial aid process; enroll in fall classes; and register for New Student Orientation all in one visit. Transfer students can also receive an unofficial transfer evaluation.
“Our ‘On the Spot Admit Days’ are just another way UMA takes a barrier away from starting, or completing, a college degree,” said Brandy Finck, associate vice president for Admission and Student Financial Services, in a news release. “Now is the time to make your plans for fall, and in one easy stop you can apply, be admitted, and enroll in your first course. We will also help you explore how to make your college education affordable with scholarship opportunities.”
There are many financial scholarships available for both new and returning students. Everyone who attends and registers for courses totaling at least six credit hours will be placed in a drawing for one of three $1,000 scholarships! There is no application fee and students should bring official copies of transcripts, if possible. (Interested students can also schedule an advising appointment on a different date and time, if more convenient.)
The Fall Semester at UMA starts September 3, so this is an ideal time to learn more, apply, and register for classes. Attendees are encouraged to register for the event at uma.edu/onthespot, but drop-ins are welcome.
“It’s not too late to start or continue college this fall — we hope to see you!” said UMA Rockland Director Deborah Meehan.
