The University of Maine at Farmington has 1,000 reasons for you to consider transferring here. Our $1,000 Transfer Scholarship is just one of them.

Farmington has always welcomed students from other colleges who seek to join our campus community and all it has to offer. Whether you’re looking to step up from a community college, seeking switch to a more affordable alternative, looking for a fresh start, or if you’re just interested in going to college closer to home, we may be the perfect fit for you. Adding to that, we now offer a $1,000 Transfer Academic Scholarship – just for Transfer Students.
