International Student

The University of Maine System welcomes students from all over the world.  We are home to students from over 70 nations around the world.  The over 600 international students who make up our undergraduate and graduate programs provide global and national insights that make your experience truly enriching.

International transfer students can potentially receive credit for college level work completed in another country.  All international transcripts must be evaluated for US course and degree equivalencies.

The following evaluation services are available. We recommend that you check with the campus at which you want to enroll to find out which evaluation service you should use.
