Our Students

Students who attend UMFK discover the return for the time they have invested is far more than simply acquiring the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals. The faculty and staff of the university provide one-on-one support that, in addition to helping our students achieve success and overcome obstacles, has the end result of passing to our graduates a creative work ethic that is a reflection of the reputation the people of the local communities have across the state.  And we do it without breaking the bank. UMFK has earned numerous accolades from prestigious organizations such as the Princeton Review and U.S. World News and Report which identify us as one of the most affordable universities.

Yet the college experience is more than gaining a diploma with a prestigious reputation for hard working graduates and fun-filled days in a wilderness paradise. Students have a need to explore the world, and UMFK is a comfortable base from which to gain urban experiences in international metropolises. A couple of hours west of Fort Kent is Quebec City while Bangor and coastal Maine are south. UMFK is at the center of the Acadia of the Lands and Forests, a region where French Acadians maintain and celebrate their cultural identity. Students from UMFK, which has a higher percentage of international students than any other university in New England, immerse themselves in a cultural opportunity that is unique in the world.
