Online Student Verification

Students enrolled in online or hybrid courses must access the campus learning management system (Brightspace) through a secure login provided with their MaineStreet account at the time of enrollment. Electronic course work must be submitted only through the LMS or through the @maine.edu email system. Additional methods of authentication that may be used at the faculty’s discretion are proctored exams; use of a plagiarism detection tool, and the use of personally identifiable information to verify identity (e.g. student ID, date of birth, address, etc.).

The Schedule Builder tool can be accessed via the Enrollment tab in the left hand navigation within the Student Center. The Schedule Builder tool will empower students to build course schedules for a term based on their availability and selected set of courses. Students will be able to review, compare, filter, and “favorite” schedules, as well as share them with their advisors, and more. Schedule Builder is designed to make the process of building and assessing potential schedules more efficient and comprehensive.

For more information including a brief video tutorial, visit the Student Center Resources page. If you have any further questions, please contact the IT Support Center.

Math Placement Test

UMaine: All students entering UMaine must be placed in the correct math classes. If you have a 670 on the math portion of the SAT, or a 29 on the math portion of the ACT, then you can be enrolled in any math class up to MAT 126 (Calculus I); all other students must take the mathematics placement exam.

To take the exam, wait 24 hours after activating your UMS account and then: Go to the institution’s Learning Managing System and log in using your UMS ID and password. Call IT Help, 207.581.2506, if you need help logging in. Please note there is a $25 fee for this exam. For more information, see this link HERE.

You have three attempts for each of the three parts of the exam, so if you are not satisfied with your first placement results, we suggest reviewing your high school mathematics and then trying again.

UMaine Machias:  Students will work with their academic advisor to determine the most appropriate math placement based on major and skill level.
