Transfer Guides Tool

Each UMaine System campus has a distinctive mission and achieves its educational goals in somewhat different ways. The new Transfer Guides Tool is a quick and clean way to help you see how your coursework at other Maine colleges and universities may fit into a Farmington degree program. We encourage you to use the new Transfer Guides Tool.

The General Education Block

Every student who completes the General Education Block at a UMaine System campus can now transfer that school’s Gen Ed Block to Farmington for General Education credits at UMF — no matter which UMaine System campus you attend. Making it even easier to get here from there.

The UMaine System General Education Transfer Block is a minimum of 35 credits of coursework defined by each institution, with grades of C- or higher in all courses.

Note: The General Education Transfer Block does not necessarily satisfy all Gen Ed requirements, but it satisfies most of them. When you transfer using the Gen Ed Block, you may still have to meet some Farmington-specific requirements. We can walk you through that — just contact us.

Farmington-specific requirements:

  • UMaine-Augusta, UMaine-Fort Kent or University of Southern Maine students transferring to Farmington with the Gen Ed Transfer Block must take one additional 4-credit natural science course with a lab.
  • UMaine or UMaine-Presque Isle students transferring to Farmington with the Gen Ed Transfer Block must take one additional 4-credit General Education course — a course that would satisfy the open Gen Ed requirement.
  • UMaine-Machias students transferring to Farmington with the Gen Ed Transfer Block do not need to take any additional courses to satisfy our General Education requirements.

Please be aware that some Farmington academic programs require courses that also satisfy General Education requirements. Transfer students may have satisfied all Gen Ed requirements as described above and still need additional coursework to satisfy these major-specific requirements.

Let Us Help You

Transferring is a highly individualized process, and sometimes confusing. So let us give you the personal attention you deserve. Just contact us any step along the way. We look forward to meeting you.
