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 at 207.768.9535 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 (non U.S. citizens only)

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.

Placement Tests

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 This email address is being protected from spambots.
