      • Go HERE and log in using your UMS ID and password. Call IT Help, 207.581.2506, if you need help logging in.
      • Select MAT 001-Math Placement Exam from your course list.

  • Academic Integrity and 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.
