Degree / Graduation Requirements

Each student is responsible for knowing and following the policies governing his or her course of study and for fulfilling all academic requirements for the degree sought.  The faculty and the staff of the University are available to advise and assist students to understand and to meet these requirements.  Students should direct questions about academic policies and degree requirements to their academic advisor or to their academic dean or program coordinator.

Degree Requirements for Graduation

Degree requirements may change over time.  Generally students are responsible for meeting the degree requirements published in the catalog in effect when they entered the university.  Students who change to a different college must meet the college and university requirements in effect at the time of the change.  Students who change to a different major must meet the major requirements in effect at the time of the change. Students who are absent from the university for two or more years must meet the program requirements in effect at the time of their return to the university.

Candidates for baccalaureate degrees must meet all of the following requirements:

  1. Receive acceptable grades in all required courses and credits, including General Education, college and major courses. The Pass/Fail option is not allowed for courses used to fulfill program requirements for the major, for the minor, for the college, or for general education.
  2. Accumulate the number of degree credits specified by the program in which they are registered (120 credits minimum).
  3. Achieve a cumulative grade point average of not less than 2.0 in University of Maine courses.
  4. Earn a minimum of 30 credits originating from the University of Maine campus at the 300 level or higher over any year of study.*  There are two exceptions to this policy:
  • students who have already completed three or more years at the University of Maine (minimum of 90 credits of University of Maine courses) when, in the opinion of the student’s academic program faculty in consultation with the student’s dean, there is sufficient and valid reason to complete the senior year elsewhere
  • students who have completed a minimum of three years of work at the University of Maine and who have been admitted to an accredited professional school of medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, or divinity.  With the approval of the academic program faculty in consultation with the student’s dean, these students may qualify for the appropriate bachelor’s degree at the University of Maine upon receipt of the professional degree.

*An academic department may require that some minimum number of courses be completed within that department to earn a University of Maine degree in that discipline.  These departmental residency requirements are noted in the description of each academic program elsewhere in this catalog.

Double Degrees

Students may earn a second baccalaureate degree by completing at least 30 credits beyond the number required for the primary degree, and by completing all requirements of the second degree and, if the second degree is in a different college from the first, by completing all requirements of the second college.

Students intending to complete more than one degree are required to declare their intent to the dean of their college (or to the deans of both colleges, if the degree programs are in different colleges) in writing no later than first semester of the senior year. At that time the student must declare a primary degree. The student will receive two diplomas.

Students may also complete a second degree subsequent to graduation. Students selecting this option must be readmitted by the college where the new major resides, complete at least 30 credits beyond the minimum required for the first degree, and complete all college and major requirements for the second degree. If readmitted within two years of graduation, students may apply towards the 30-credit minimum any credits previously earned in excess of the minimum number required for the first degree. Students enrolling for a second degree two or more years after completing the first one must complete at least 30 additional credits, regardless of the number of credits earned previously.  

Grade Point Average is based on a student’s entire undergraduate career.  A student’s GPA will continue when re-admitted to a second degree program.  The original GPA is fixed at graduation and will not be adjusted subsequently.

Double Majors

Double majors are possible within a single baccalaureate degree. Both majors may be within the same college, or they may be in different colleges. Students may complete two different majors simultaneously with no prescribed increase in total credits beyond those required to satisfy both majors.

Students intending to complete the requirements of more than one major are required to declare their intent in writing to the dean of their college (or to the deans of both colleges, if the majors are in different colleges) no later than the first semester of the senior year. At this time the student must declare a primary major. The baccalaureate degree granted will be that associated with the primary major, and the student is required to satisfy all of the requirements imposed by that college. To complete the second major, the student need only complete the specific requirements established for that major. The primary and secondary majors will be noted both on the diploma and on the transcript, worded according to the following example: Bachelor of Science in Biology, with a second major in Art, or Bachelor of Art in Studio Art, with a second major in Biology (depending upon which is designated the primary major).

Students may also complete a second major subsequent to graduation. Students selecting this option must be readmitted to the college where the new major resides, and are required to satisfy only the specific requirements for the chosen second major that are in force at the time of readmission. Students who had declared the second major prior to graduation may continue to follow the catalog requirements in effect for that major if they have no break from the university or return within two years.

Students completing a second major via this mechanism will not receive a second, revised diploma, but the phrase “with a second major in X” will be added to the transcript to recognize the accomplishment.

Minors 

Minors are sets of courses designed to provide a student with substantial knowledge of a subject area outside of their major course of study. A minor is available to any degree-matriculated student as long as the program of study for the minor does not significantly overlap with the student’s major course of study. The unit or units involved will determine how much overlap is appropriate at the time of declaration. Normally no more than one third of the requirements for the minor can overlap with the major requirements.

A student’s transcript will indicate a declared minor. However, students need to officially declare their minor with the department, unit, or school where the minor is offered. If this is not done, there is no guarantee that proper certification of the minor will appear on the final transcript. If a student begins work on a minor but fails to meet all of the requirements, there is no penalty.

Minors are normally awarded at the same time a degree is conferred. Students who complete their baccalaureate but not their minor(s) requirements by graduation will be allowed to return to the university to complete the minor as long as the following criteria are met:

  1. The student has declared the minor by the time of graduation; and
  2. The student completes the requirements within a two-year period of the awarding of the accompanying baccalaureate degree

Concentrations

A concentration is a set of courses available only to students within a declared major. Concentrations allow a student to place substantial emphasis on an academic subfield of the discipline. All concentrations within a major must share a subset of the core courses required for the major. In addition to these core courses, a concentration consists of a set of courses within the subfield, primarily within the upper level elective category of the major (300 or 400 level courses). Concentrations may not be completed after the accompanying degree has been earned. A student’s transcript will indicate a completed concentration. However, students need to officially declare their concentration with the department, unit, or school where the concentration is offered.

Change of Major

University of Maine degree candidates planning to change majors should contact the academic program in which enrollment is sought. Students who have a 2.0 or better cumulative UMaine GPA are normally admitted to the program they are seeking to enter, but certain programs have special admission criteria.

Students who have less than a 2.0 cumulative UMaine GPA may be admitted to their program of choice contingent on previous course work and related factors, or be referred to either the Undergraduate Advising Center in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences or to the Bachelor of University Studies (BUS) program in the Division of Lifelong Learning for information about alternative pathways to completing a UMaine degree.

Latin Honors

Degrees with Latin honors are conferred at commencement for the following attainments of rank:

  • Summa cum laude: 3.7 GPA
  • Magna cum laude: 3.5 GPA
  • Cum laude: 3.3 GPA

The University bases the GPA only on the student’s work at the University of Maine, and that must amount to at least 60 credits or 50 percent of the total degree credits required in the student’s program of study, whichever is greater.

Honors

Degrees designated with Honors, with High Honors, or with Highest Honors are awarded only to graduates successfully completing requirements in the University of Maine’s Honors College.

Valedictorian/Salutatorian

Valedictorian and Salutatorian are the highest honors awarded to students by the University of Maine.  Each student will be recognized for outstanding academic achievements and for contributions to the University or wider community. 

To be considered for these awards, all candidates must meet the following eligibility criteria:  

  • Students must have completed at least 75 credits of coursework at the University of Maine, exclusive of pass/fail or incomplete grades.
  • Students must have a minimum of at 3.8 GPA at the end of the fall semester prior to graduation.
  • All credits counting toward the baccalaureate degree must have been completed within six (6) years immediately preceding graduation.
  • Students must file for December or May graduation by published deadline.

In addition to the above listed criteria, the candidates will be evaluated upon the strength, breadth, and rigor of their academic achievements, evidence of intellectual promise, character, service and other accomplishments. 

Celebration of Academia

The conferral of baccalaureate, masters, and doctoral degrees upon students is an important event in the life of the institution, one rich in tradition dating to medieval times. It is a celebration of student achievement in which the faculty, the family and friends of the students, and the graduates themselves together mark the end of a formal program of education and the commencement of a new stage in life. All faculty members and graduating students are encouraged to participate in the formal May ceremony each year.

Application for Graduation

Graduation is not automatic upon completion of all program requirements. Candidates for degrees must submit an Application for Graduation according to the following schedule:

  • by March 24, for degrees to be awarded in May (the application deadline will be set each year for the Friday after Spring Break)
  • By July 15, for degrees to be awarded in August
  • by November 15, for degrees to be awarded in December

General information and details of the application process are available at http://www.studentrecords.umaine.edu/graduation/

Note: Students completing degree requirements during May Term are considered as August degree candidates.

Graduation Timeline
Each college performs final certification of degree completion within 60 days after the end of the term.

Students who apply for graduation but do not meet the minimum requirements will be notified by the college.

General Education

Every University of Maine academic program is based upon a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences. The University’s goal is to ensure that all of its graduates, regardless of the academic major they pursued, are broadly educated persons who can appreciate the achievements of civilization, understand the tensions within it, and contribute to resolving them. This component of every program is called general education, and it amounts to about one third of every program. The design of general education at the University of Maine is meant to be flexible within the broad goals it seeks to achieve. It affords each student many ways of meeting its requirements, which fall under the six broad categories outlined below.

Students who have completed the UMS General Education Transfer Block at any other UMS institution currently accredited by NEASC will be regarded as having completed all of their General Education requirements except for the following, which must be taken at the University of Maine:

  • A minimum of three additional course credits in any of the UMaine Human Values and Social Context subcategory areas
  • A Writing Intensive course in the Major Degree
  • A Capstone Experience course
  • Any specific General Education courses required by the major

Students who have previously earned a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution do not have to meet General Education requirements to earn a degree from UMaine. A student must meet the requirements of the major (assuming sufficient credits are accepted by transfer to total 120 credits or more, depending on the major) with at least 30 credits of 300 / 400-level courses from UMaine.

Note: Courses must be taken for letter grade only to satisfy a general education requirement.

Science

Students must complete two courses in the physical or biological sciences. This may be accomplished in two ways:

  1. By completing two courses with laboratories in the basic or applied sciences;
  2. By completing one course in the applications of scientific knowledge, plus one course with a laboratory in the basic or applied sciences.

Applications of Scientific Knowledge

Human Values and Social Contexts

Students must complete 18 credits in this broad area, selected from lists of approved courses to satisfy each of five sub-categories. (Courses that satisfy requirements in more than one sub-category may be counted in each appropriate sub-category, but credits may be counted only once.)

  1. Western cultural tradition
  2. Social contexts and institutions
  3. Cultural diversity and international perspectives
  4. Population and the environment
  5. Artistic and creative expression

Completion of any of these courses (HON 111, 112, 211 or 212) satisfies either the General Education Western Cultural Tradition or the Cultural Diversity and International Perspectives requirement. Completion of any two satisfies the Western Cultural Tradition, Cultural Diversity and International Perspectives, and Ethics requirements. Completion of three satisfies the Western Cultural Tradition, Cultural Diversity and International Perspectives, Social Context and Institutions, and Ethics requirements. Completion of all four satisfies the Ethics requirement and all areas of the Human Values and Social Context requirements for 16 of the total 18 credits required in those areas.

Capstone Experience

Students must complete a capstone experience. The goal is to draw together the various threads of the undergraduate program that bear directly upon the academic major in an experience that typifies the work of professionals within the discipline. Normally, the Capstone would conclude at the end of the student’s senior year. Students should consult closely with their academic advisor to explore the range of options available for meeting this requirement.
