General Information

At the University of Maine at Fort Kent we want to make your transfer experience as easy and positive as possible. Nearly half of our degrees seeking students are transfer students just like you. Whether you are coming in with only a few credit hours or a few semesters of credits we will work with you to develop an accurate degree plan and take advantage of the credits you have already earned.

At UMFK you are considered a transfer student if you are currently in college or have 13 or more transferable credits taken at another postsecondary institution.

The minimum GPA for transfer into most programs at UMFK is 2.0, the exceptions to this are the following:

  • Traditional Nursing = 2.5
  • Accelerated Nursing = 3.2
  • RN to BSN Nursing = 2.5

To see admissions requirements for particular programs check out the Majors page.

We understand the transfer of your credits is important but can be confusing, check out this link for more information about being a transfer student in the University of Maine System: Transfer Information

Students currently attending a college or university within the state of Maine can use the University of Maine System's Transfer Guides to see how coursework at their current school may fit into one of our degree programs.

You can also check out our Transfer Equivalencies to get a preview of how some of your credits may transfer.
