You've taken that first step from high school student, to becoming a college student. Now that you've been accepted and you're getting ready to start college, you need to take a few more steps before registering for classes.
- Pay Tuition Deposit
- Submit Immunization Records
- Submit Affidavit of Support
- Take Placement Tests (if required)
- Submit Final Transcripts
- Activate UMPI Email and MaineStreet Portal
- Register For Classes
- Housing Contract
Pay Tuition Deposit
After being accepted you are required to pay a $50 tuition deposit. This will hold your place in the upcoming classes and allow you to register. Payments can be made online, through the MaineStreet Student Services Center, mailed to the Admissions Office, or call the office with your Visa, MasterCard or Discover credit card. The deposit will be credited to the first semester bill.
Submit Immunization Records
According to Maine State Law, students enrolled in a degree program, full or part-time, need to show proof of immunization. Registration cannot be completed until that has been verified by the Health Office. You must submit a photocopy of your school health record or an immunization record your healthcare provider supplied. If you don't have official documentation, you must get immunized before enrolling in or attending classes. This can be faxed to (207-768-9777), dropped off or mailed to the Admissions Office.
Submit Affidavit of Support
The Affidavit of Support Form verifies your willingness to financially commit to attending the University of Maine at Presque Isle and requires evidence that you have funding available to the meet the total expenses of one academic year. The Affidavit of Support is included in your acceptance packet and is also available to download here. This form will be used to issue the student's Form I-20. Form I-20's are mailed out 90 days before the start of school. Please return this form by faxing to Jessica Blackstone at 207-768-9777.
All students who have no record of college level coursework in reading, writing and math must take placement tests in these areas before registering for classes. Students with SAT scores of 500 or higher in critical reading will be exempt from the reading and writing tests; scores of 500 or higher in math exempts students from the math test.
You may take your placement tests at UMPI or at a nearby high school, community college, university or satellite campus that agrees to proctor the test. To make arrangements to take your placement test, please contact Kathryn Higgins at .
Submit Final Transcripts
The University of Maine at Presque Isle must receive final high school transcripts, including your date of graduation. Major changes in academic performance may result in a withdrawal of our offer of admission.
