Additional Information

Offer of Admission

All offers of admission are extended with the understanding that your record of academic achievement and personal conduct will remain at least at the level as when we reviewed an application. Maine Maritime Academy reserves the right to rescind an offer of admission if it is learned that subsequent academic performance or personal behavior are viewed to be substandard or inappropriate.

Notice Regarding Changing of Majors

If admitted to MMA in a non-USCG license major, it may not be possible to switch to a USCG license major after enrolling. Unfortunately, MMA cannot guarantee a major change into a USCG license major after enrollment. If you have any questions, please call us to discuss.

Fraudulent Reporting

Applicants must provide accurate and complete information on all application documents. Intentional omission or falsification of information during the application process will result in the immediate rejection of the application. Application misrepresentation includes, but is not limited to: (1) false, omitted, or misleading information on the application, medical or immunization forms, financial aid disclosures or during the personal interview, (2) fake, forged, or altered transcripts, standardized test scores, or letters of recommendation.

Wait List Policy

Maine Maritime Academy strives to meet its academic enrollment goals each year. The college’s Office of Admissions acts on applications on a rolling basis until the goals for enrollment are met for the selected academic major or for the entire incoming class. Accordingly, candidates for admission are accepted each year in quantities that are based on an estimate of yield (the percentage of applicants who actually enroll). With this in mind, the college maintains a Wait List for those candidates who meet admission criteria, yet apply or deposit after program or enrollment capacity has been met. These candidates are offered placement on the Wait List. In the event that the yield falls short of projections, MMA will draw students from the Wait List to fill vacancies in the academic program or incoming class.  Wait List FAQ
