Transfer Wednesday Sessions

Maybe your current college situation isn’t quite what you’d hoped. Maybe you want to go someplace more affordable or someplace closer to home. Maybe you’re at a Community College and want to move on to a 4-year degree. Or maybe you’ve got some college credits under your belt and want to wrap up that college degree. Whatever your reasons, now’s the perfect time to Transfer to Farmington.

To help you through the Transfer process and to answer your Transfer questions, we’ve lined up a series of Transfer Wednesday Sessions.

These Live Zoom Sessions put you face-to-face with our Admissions Transfer Specialist and a UMF Transfer Student in real-time. We’ll walk you through the Transfer process, answer your Transfer questions, tell you about our special Transfer Scholarship and more.

  • Wednesday, Nov 4  6pm-7pm
  • Wednesday, Nov 18  6pm-7pm

Want to Transfer into our Teacher Education programs? It’s easy.

We know many of you want to transfer to UMF for our outstanding Teacher Education programs. No Praxis – No Problem. We don’t require the Praxis Exam in advance of your transfer. You can apply to transfer in right away. If you haven’t taken the Praxis before you arrive, you’ll just need to take it your first semester here. We want you to know that in case you need to prepare for it. Again, this Praxis Exam info pertains only to those who are transferring into our Education programs.

We truly value Transfer students like you.

We appreciate the wisdom and different perspectives you bring to our campus. You’ve experienced someplace else and you had the courage and conviction to know you know what you want … and what you don’t want. That’s bold. Gutsy. Independent. And we like that. 

Farmington has always welcomed students from other colleges who seek to join our campus community. We have a lot of Transfer students here, so you’ll fit right in. And it has been our experience that Transfers to Farmington have been among our strongest, most motivated and successful students. Like them, you’ll do great things here.

At Farmington, we major in personal attention.

We understand that at large universities you can sometimes feel like you’re treated like a number, that you’re an anonymous face in a vast sea of other people. Enormous lecture halls, mobs of people, professors who don’t even know your name. (We hear this from students who transfer here from big schools.)

We’re the alternative to a big, impersonal school. Here, you’ll get to know everyone and everyone will get to know you.

Thirty+ majors. A national reputation. Internship opportunities. A friendly, close-knit campus. All at an affordable price. Here, it’s all About YOU.

The University of Maine at Farmington is a small, friendly, close-knit campus where students are the center of the universe. Our small classes (avg. class size is just 18 students) are taught by caring, dedicated professors. Though many of our faculty members are nationally-recognized experts in their fields, they have a passion for teaching and also take the time to get to know their students.

Sharing ideas, debating issues, collaborating with students on a research project, holding office hours to review a term paper, or helping with a tricky assignment, our professors will become an active part of your life. And some will even become treasured lifelong mentors. This doesn’t happen at all schools, but it IS part of The Farmington Way.

Sound good? Let’s Talk!

Change is good. But change can sometimes be confusing or seem complicated. That’s where Assistant Director of Admissions and Transfer Specialist Joe McShane comes in.

Joe is your primary contact for all things Transfer. Because he transferred to the University of Maine at Farmington when he was a student, Joe knows the UMF transfer terrain first-hand.

He can guide you through the process, answer your important questions, and also tell you how easy it is to transfer to Farmington and what it was like to go to school here: academics, extracurriculars, clubs and organizations, living in the Farmington area and more. Joe works at UMF year-round and is ready to help you on this next step of your academic journey
