New Student Orientation

Welcome, Class of 2026!

We are thrilled to welcome you to Maine Maritime Academy and look forward to meeting you in person soon. This year’s New Student Orientation includes both virtual and in-person opportunities for you to connect with your peers, get to know our campus, and ensure that you are ready for a successful semester this fall.

In-Person Sessions

Choosing your in-person session is part of your housing application, so be sure to complete that and choose which in-person session you’d like to attend. These sessions are optional, but we do hope you will join us on campus.

Session Dates:

  • Session 1: June 4 | 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
  • Session 2: June 25* | 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
  • Session 3: July 16**  | 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

*Students needing to fly to campus are encouraged to attend this session, as there will be an evening activity offered on June 24th.
**Non-traditional students and transfers are encouraged to attend this session.

NSO staff will be sharing additional information about each session in the coming weeks, so please keep a close eye on your new school email.

Choose Your Adventure

As part of this year’s in-person experience, we are excited to offer an a-la-carte style activities menu for you to choose from and each in-person session will be action-packed!

Castine is particularly beautiful during the summer and so we’re hoping to take advantage of the season to introduce to all the very best of MMA: our vessels, our facilities, and our community.

While here, you will have the opportunity to meet your classmates, participate in group activities, and meet MMA staff and faculty across campus. We will be ready to show you around, help you get oriented to college life, and answer any questions you may have.

‘Choose Your Adventure’ activities information and sign up will be available in the Maine Maritime Academy Mobile App.

If you have questions about orientation please contact Deidra Davis at 207-326-2138.
