Adventure Awaits 2021 New Student Orientation
Welcome, Class of 2025!

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 will include 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.

Getting Started

Virtual content will be available on this webpage starting June 1. At that time, you will find information about how to register for classes, finalize your financial aid, manage the billing cycle, and learn more about selecting a roommate!

Throughout the month of June, we will be adding additional videos to introduce you to just about every aspect of life at the Academy. There is so much that we want to share with you can’t wait to introduce you to our incredible faculty and staff.

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 19
  • 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM

  • Session 2: June 26
  • 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM

  • Session 3: July 17
  • 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM

Due to COVID 19 safety concerns, we are limiting the number of family members/guests who may join the student on campus to two (2). Families/guests will have a morning session with staff and faculty to help answer your questions and be free from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM to explore Castine.

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 your get oriented to college life, and answer any questions you may have.

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.

Stay Connected

We encourage you to stay connected over the course of the summer by following MMA on social media and connecting with your fellow Mariners in the #ClassOf2025 Facebook group.

Parents and families are welcome to connect with fellow parents on Facebook in the Maine Maritime Academy Parents Association Facebook group.
