I’m Admitted! What’s Next?

Congratulations! You have been accepted as a student at Maine Maritime Academy. We are proud to welcome you into our community and look forward to helping you get settled in Castine.

We have outlined important ‘next steps’ in the section below. If you have any questions about this process, remember that our Admissions team is here to help! Please reach out if you need any additional support during this exciting transition.

Shortly after you received your acceptance letter, you should also have received an email from our office with the subject line ‘✔️ How to Access Your Financial Aid’. Follow the instructions included in that message to activate your email and set up a new password. This important step will allow you to check your Financial Aid status and receive Academy emails and updates.

Once you set up your account, please remember to check your email often. We don’t want you to miss any of the important information that we send your way!

Full Instructions

To accept your offer of admission and pay your student deposit, please log in to the Application Portal. Once there, you will see a list of additional materials that you will need to complete before arriving on campus.

If you have any trouble accessing the portal, please contact our office or review the log-in instructions.

Understanding your Cost of Attendance at MMA is important and we do not want you to be met with any surprises when you arrive in Castine. For our calculations, we include all possible costs that you may incur as a student. There are no hidden fees.

In addition to major-specific expenses, we include items such as a laptop. You are not required to purchase a laptop but if you need to get a new one, we want to include it in your indirect costs.

If you are a regimental student, there will be costs associated with you uniform, licenses, and cruises. At MMA, your Cost of Attendance reflects the Fall and Spring semesters and any expenses relating to the Summer term.

For all students, our room and board calculations are based on a standard two-person room and 21 meals per week plan.

Not all institutions break down their costs in this way but transparency in these matters is a top priority for our team. If you have any questions about Cost of Attendance, please reach out!

When you accept your admission offer in the Application Portal, you will find a checklist of additional documents that you will need to send or bring with you when you arrive in Castine. Please review the checklist carefully.

Be sure to have your school submit official final transcripts as needed.

All deposited students will receive a health form and detailed instructions before arriving on campus. Completed forms are sent directly to Health Services (fax: 207.326.2129 or email )

If you are in a Coast Guard license program, you will need a current passport or a certified birth certificate to obtain your TWIC card and to secure certifications and credentials as needed. You will also need to know your Social Security number. Please bring these documents with you to campus.

If you have any questions about the checklist or the required documents, please reach out to our office. We are happy to answer them!
