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.

It was pretty easy to transfer to UMF. I was pleasantly surprised – and my faculty advisor in my major, Psychology, has been great to work with on class scheduling, course requirements and other things. Transferring here was really easy.
