UMaine – University of Maine at Augusta Transfer Agreements

UMA Foundations Program

The UMA Foundations program is a joint program offered in partnership by the University of Maine at Augusta (UMA) and the University of Maine (UMaine).  Students are selected for this program as a result of their application to UMaine.  The first three semesters are offered by UMA, with UMA classes taught on the Orono campus, providing students in the program an opportunity to build a strong academic profile to support a successful transfer to UMaine in the fourth semester.  Housing is provided for the first year on the Orono campus.
