At Farmington, 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 gutsy — and we like it. In fact, we’ve found that driven, independent-minded Transfer students like you end up being among our best students. Oh, yes, you’ll fit in well here.

We’ve made it even easier to transfer!

To make it even easier for future teachers to Transfer to Farmington, we eliminated the Praxis Core Exam for students seeking to transfer into our Education programs.

We know many of you want to transfer to UMF for our outstanding Education programs. We no longer require the Praxis Exam in advance of your transfer. But just a heads up, if you haven’t taken the Praxis before you arrive, you’ll need to take it your first semester here. We just want you to know in case you need to prepare for it. (Again, this Praxis Exam info pertains only to those who are transferring into our Education programs.)

Here, you’ll be treated like a Person – not a number.

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.)

At Farmington, we major in personal attention.

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

Forty+ 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.

A special $1,000 scholarship — just for Transfer students.

We offer One Thousand more reasons to transfer to Farmington — a $1,000 scholarship dedicated specifically to qualifying Transfer Students. Check it out: Transfer Scholarship.

We still have financial aid available for Transfer students and of course, applying to UMF is FREE.

A Personal Approach to Transferring.

Transferring to a new college is a highly individualized process, and sometimes confusing. So, we have two special Transfer Guides, Joseph McShane (Admissions) and Joe Toner (Financial Aid) to help you through the process.
