Merrill Center Student Services provides front line services for records and registration, student accounts, student financial aid and student employment. The four functional areas are as listed below:
Records and Registration are the keepers and protectors of your permanent student record, from admission through graduation, keeping it from unauthorized access and destruction. We provide academic transcripts, verify enrollment, administer VA benefits, approve graduation and schedule courses. We also administer the academic policies set by University of Maine at Farmington and the University of Maine System, ensuring fair, consistent practice. Our mission is to provide high quality, friendly support and service to students, faculty and staff while upholding the ethical and professional standards of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers.
Student Accounts – In keeping with its educational mission, UMF expects each student to exercise responsibility and timeliness in fulfilling one’s financial obligations to the University. Each student has an individual student account record maintained in the student’s name by Student Accounts. UMF currently mails billing statements to students at least once per semester. Students are expected to view their account information through MaineStreet, a secure on-line system located at http://mainestreet.maine.edu where transactions on Student Self Service can be accessed in detail by semester.
Student Financial Aid- The mission of the UMF Financial Aid Office is an outgrowth of the campus mission as Maine’s public liberal arts college. Our purpose is to support student access and persistence to graduation through the delivery of an array of services and support that primarily encompasses grants, scholarships, on-campus student employment and payroll, and assorted loan programs. We strive to honor the vision of UMF and to uphold the values of our campus mission though financial aid services marked by excellence.
Student Employment is integral to the daily operations of many departments here at UMF. We are very proud of our student work programs because they allow students to work in fields related to either their major or a personal interest, or even to gain employment that leads them to a decision of what they would like to major in or pursue in a professional capacity.
