Welcome aboard, Midshipmen Under Guidance (MUGs)!

Over the next few months, via this page, we will provide you with information and next steps. Our hope is to help understand what to expect when you become part of the MMA family and to help you succeed once you arrive. In the future, you can again refer to this page for information to help you transition beyond MUG month and into the Academic Year.

One of the first opportunities you will have to meet your future shipmates and get fitted for your Regimental uniforms will be at New Student Orientation (NSO).  Attending an in-person NSO is not mandatory, but it will give you an inside look at the campus, familiarize you with some of our vessels, and allow you to have your questions answered. In addition to the in-person experience, this year’s NSO experience will contain virtual offerings to help you prepare for your time at MMA. For more information, explore the 2022 New Student Information webpage.

Important information about timelines, academic preparation, and our sponsor family program is included below. We also have links for specific student groups, and they should be able to answer any questions you may have if you fall into these categories. On the New Student Information page, you will find additional links for the uniform fitting form, a physical training calendar with suggested exercises, and other pertinent information needed prior to your arrival on August 21.

We look forward to working with you as you begin to chart your path here at MMA!

We encourage you to check your MMA email regularly! The Dean of Student Services, the Financial Office, the Registrar’s Office, the Athletics Department, and the Commandant’s staff will all use this email address to communicate important information to you.

We are proud that you’ve chosen Maine Maritime Academy and are looking forward to welcoming you to MMA soon. In the meantime stay connected, and please be in touch with questions!
