AdvantageU

Advantage U is a partnership between the University of Maine System and the Maine Community College System. Students in the Associates of Arts degree in Liberal Studies at Eastern Maine Community College who register for this program and meet all of the program requirements receive guaranteed admission to any of Maine’s public universities and experience a simplified transfer process.

Why it’s a Good Idea

Experience a streamlined transfer process from EMCC to a Maine public university

•Transfer to the University with junior standing

• Receive early advising toward your University major

• No University application fee

How the AdvantageU Program Works

•You are first admitted into the Liberal Studies program at EMCC.

•Once you complete your Associate Degree in Liberal Studies, you are guaranteed admission as a junior at the Maine public university of your choice.

◦Since some university programs have specific criteria and/or grade point average (GPA) requirements for admission*, you should work closely with your Transfer Advisor to make sure you are meeting the requirements for the baccalaureate degree program you choose.

* The University of Maine requires a 2.5 GPA for guaranteed admission. The University of Maine at Farmington requires a 2.5 GPA minimum for some programs and is subject to an enrollment cap.

How to Sign Up

Fill out the Participation Form and submit it to the Enrollment Center in Katahdin Hall, prior to completing 30 credits. Work with the Transfer Advisor in the Enrollment Center to establish your University connection and to be sure you are meeting the requirements for the University you plan to attend.

How to Transfer

When you have completed 45 credits at EMCC, fill out an Intent to Enroll/University Application form and return it to the Enrollment Center.   EMCC will forward your Intent to Enroll/University Application form and other essential academic information to the Admission Office of the University you wish to attend. The deadline for filing the Intent to Enroll/University Application form for fall semester admissions is February 1 and October 1 for spring semester.
