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 to 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.

$1,000 Transfer Academic Scholarship

The UMF Transfer Academic Scholarship is awarded to Transfer applicants with an outstanding college record. The award is valued at a total of $1,000 per year and awarded each year in the amount of $500 per semester.

No additional application is required for this scholarship.

It’s Renewable, too

This special Transfer Scholarship is renewable for up to 6 consecutive semesters at the University of Maine at Farmington, provided you meet the renewal requirements, which include enrollment in at least 12 UMF credit hours per semester and remaining in good academic standing.
