To register for fall and spring semesters, a student may complete their wishlist in MaineStreet and contact their advisor for approval of the wishlist or the student may meet directly with their advisor. UMFK does not provide PIN numbers for registration purposes. For Summer session, students may register themselves directly from the wishlist without advisor permission. It is strongly encouraged to always meet with the advisor.
You may drop a class through your wishlist prior to the start of the semester. After the start of the semester, you will need a drop form that is available from your advisor or the registrar’s office. The same form is used if you are dropping all classes. Although the form only requires the student’s signature, it is strongly recommended to contact your advisor prior to dropping classes, since this may affect financial aid. You may also contact your advisor to help you submit the paperwork.
There are different options to choose from if ever a class is dropped from your schedule. First, you should make an appointment with your advisor so they can point you in the right direction; if this is a required class for the completion of your major, it will be important to speak with your advisor and make arrangements as soon as possible. Your choices will most likely include: speaking with the professor of the dropped class and arranging a directed study to complete the class; searching online via distance learning search to find an equivalent class that will fulfil that credit requirement; or waiting to take the class in an upcoming semester. You can contact the Registrar’s office to ask when the next offering will be of that particular class.

The first and one of the most important steps of applying for a job is creating a resume and cover letter.

Once you have submitted all the paperwork you will have to wait to hear back from the place of employment.
Applying to grad school can seem like a daunting and complicated procedure but if you give yourself enough time and go step by step it can be a smooth process. You want to begin by determining what program you want to apply for and when you have done that, you should begin to generate a list of schools you are interested in that have that program available. From there, gather information about the application process for each school, complete the applications, register for the GRE (graduate record exam), and create a personal statement. It is important that you be aware of any necessary supplemental pieces, such as recommendations or portfolios that may be required.
