UM/MECCC General Education Block Transfer

The Transfer Block is a defined set of general education requirements that transfer into all University of Maine System and Maine Community College System institutions. Students who complete all the requirements of the Transfer Block will have completed the bulk of their general education requirements at all of Maine’s public institutions. Maine’s universities may require up to additional 11 credits of general education credits specific to their program, or to a specific bachelor’s degree.   Completing the Transfer Block, however, does not guarantee admission to a particular university. For more information consult your adviser at SMCC.

Reverse Transfer

SMCC students who decide to transfer to UMaine before completing their Associate’s degree may be able to transfer courses from UMaine back to SMCC to complete and earn their Associate’s degree from SMCC.  Students interested in a reverse transfer should contact their SMCC adviser for more information.

Please note: These agreements are frequently renewed and may at times be under renewal.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your adviser at SMCC or the UMaine Admission Office.
