Summer Orientation

This year we are offering our Summer Orientation Virtually! This is your resource to get everything ready to start at UMaine in the fall.

Orientation is going to be broken into 3 parts for you.

  • First our website resource for academics, finances, student services and more has been launched. Visit our Virtual Orientation today!
  • Secondly, a live orientation webinar of information you’ll need to be successful at UMaine will launch in late June. Details and information will be emailed to students soon. 
  • Lastly, starting late July, incoming students will have the opportunity to virtually connect with current students. 

At any point, please do not hesitate to contact the Admissions Office for further information at or 207.581.1549. Again, welcome to the University of Maine!
