Academic Support Center

Welcome to the College of Earth, Life, and Health Sciences Academic Support Center. While you are expected to meet with your academic advisor or undergraduate program coordinator for guidance regarding course selection and career opportunities, we are here to help you with whatever you need. Our goal is to support your academic growth at UMaine. We are here to help answer general questions, direct you to vital student and academic services on campus, and provide support to help you thrive at UMaine.  We look forward to meeting you!
