How to Apply

Newly Accepted International Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to UMPI! Before you start your studies, there are additional requirements that you MUST complete. Please choose your method of study to learn what you need to do next. If you have any questions, please contact umpi-admissions@maine.edu.


Are photocopies of TOEFL and/or SAT scores and transcripts acceptable?

We cannot accept photocopies of test scores or transcripts. Only official or certified copies will be accepted.

I need to defer my start date. What do I do?

This depends on where you are in the application process. If you have not been accepted yet, you can email umpi-admissions@maine.edu to request they change the semester on your application to the following semester. If you need to defer farther than 1 semester, you will need to resubmit your application in the future. If you have been matriculated (accepted and paid your deposit fee), you need to contact your Professional Academic Advisor to request a start date deferment.

Are there scholarships open to international students?

Yes! International Students can be considered for a Merit Scholarship. Questions about scholarships can be directed to umpi-financialaid@maine.edu.
