Letters of recommendation and life experience are also taken into consideration.
For most majors a minimum cumulative GPA of at least a 2.0 on a 4.0 scale is required. Students applying for the Nursing program must have a minimum cumulative GPA of at least a 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. You must have left your previous institution in good academic and financial standing. Letters of recommendation and life experience are also taken into consideration.
UMFK has rolling admissions, which means that applications are accepted throughout the year for each upcoming semester. Applications received before August 15 for the Fall semester and January 10 for the Spring semester will be given priority consideration. Admissions decisions are also on a rolling basis so as applications are completed, decisions are mailed.
Accelerated Nursing students can only be admitted for the summer/fall semester and the application deadline is February 15th.
The priority filing date for completing a Financial Aid file to UMFK is March 31. We recommend submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the federal processing center by February 1. Although consideration for assistance will be given at any time during the year, it is in your best interest to apply as early as possible after October 1.
