Accessibility Services

Accessibility Services The primary goal of the University of Maine Student Accessibility Services is to create educational access for students with disabilities at UMaine by providing or coordinating disability accommodations, giving information about the University and available resources to students and families and educating the campus community.  Some of the services provided or coordinated for students with disabilities include testing accommodations, note takers, ordering alternate format texts, classroom relocation, and advisement on disability issues.


The University of Maine Writing Center works with all students and faculty on any kind of composition at any point in the process. Our mission is to create a lasting and positive relationship between writers and their writing through peer-to-peer collaboration.

Log into NetTutor under your class in Brightspace for access to an online tutor. Chat privately with a tutor trained in the area in which you need help.

VAWLT (Virtual Academic Writing & Library Tutors), provides synchronous and asynchronous help for writing, research, and the technology you need to succeed in your courses.

Netiquette is the guidelines for internet etiquette. This includes, but is not limited to, proper formatting of emails, not posting comments that are hurtful to others, and being a professional in the online setting.

Veteran’s Education & Transition Services

The University of Maine’s VETS Office serves student veterans as they apply to, attend and advance beyond UMaine. The Veterans Office connects student veterans with the resources they need to successfully transition from combat to classroom to career. This includes help navigating the admissions process, applying for financial aid and U.S.  Department of Veterans Affairs education benefits, academic assistance and preparing to re-enter the workforce.

Academic Integrity/Plagiarism

Academic honesty is very important. It is dishonest to cheat on exams, to copy term papers, to submit papers written by another person, to fake experimental results, or to copy or reword parts of books or articles into your own papers without appropriately citing the source. Students committing or aiding in any of these violations may be given failing grades for an assignment or for an entire course, at the discretion of the instructor. In addition to any academic action taken by an instructor, these violations are also subject to action under the University of Maine Student Conduct Code.  The maximum possible sanction under the student conduct code is dismissal from the University.
