At the University of Maine at Farmington, you’re considered a Transfer Student if you have ever enrolled in a degree program at another college or if you have accumulated 12 college credits or more as a non-degree student.
The minimum cumulative GPA for transfer into most Farmington academic programs is 2.0, except for our Education programs, which require a GPA of 2.75.
Note: Some of our majors are in such high demand that openings fill very quickly: Elementary Education, Early Childhood Education, Creative Writing, for example. For this reason and more, we strongly encourage you to apply to transfer to UMF as early as possible.
