Dear Colleagues,

We still have room in our fall geographic information systems courses at UMaine at Machias. 

A list of our fall courses is included below with links to learn more. Our online GIS courses are hands-on, practical and very flexible. We strive to make the online experience as much like in-person learning as possible. Instructors are very accessible and responsive, and assignments allow you to apply your new GIS skills to your specific needs and interests. 

You are welcome to take courses individually or to pursue one of our stackable programs, including certificates and the B.S. in Environmental GIS program. We also have an early college GIS certificate open to high school juniors and seniors who want to get a jumpstart on their college career. 

To enroll in an undergraduate course, simply give the UMM Registrar's Office a call at 207-255-1214. For graduate courses, please call the UMaine Registrar's office at 207-581-1290. 

If you have any questions about our courses or programs, feel free to drop me a line at [log in to unmask].

Stay cool!
