We’re offering a few options for classes through the Hutchinson Center: 

  • Hyflex (HF): A single course section with the option to attend on-site, attend via video or audio technology during class meeting times, or watch a recording of the course asynchronously (i.e., not in real time) via recorded class sessions, or in any combination of the three.
  • In-Person (P): The course is taught fully face-to-face in a classroom at scheduled meeting times.
  • Online (WW): A course section where 100% of course activity and class meetings are completed asynchronously (i.e., not in real time) online with no required online meeting times.

Enrollment Information

Before enrolling:

  • Verify access to MaineStreet.  New users should go to My MaineStreet Account to learn about getting started.  If current students encounter problems accessing MaineStreet, go to www.mail.maine.edu to view information on managing user accounts.  It may be necessary to reset the account password.  The IT Help Desk is also available for assistance.
  • View the current course offering list in MaineStreet.
  • Check enrollment dates on the Enrollment Appointment Schedule to determine wish list and enrollment appointments.  The Enrollment Appointment is a set date and time when a student may enroll in classes for the term.  An appointment is assigned to a student based on the amount of credit hours earned (excludes current class enrollments.)  Students may also access their enrollment appointment information in their MaineStreet Student Center shown under the “Enrollment Dates” section.
  • Obtain an Enrollment PIN – Graduate and non-degree students are not required to use a PIN.
  • Check for enrollment (registration) holds in the Student Center in MaineStreet.  Each University of Maine System (UMS) student is required to complete a Student Financial Responsibility Statement (FRS) as a condition of enrollment for each term.  This Statement is designed to ensure awareness and understanding of billing policies and financial obligations as a UMS student.

Enrolling in classes:

  • Use MaineStreet to create a Wish List and enroll in classes at the proper appointment times.  Students have the option of enrolling in person by visiting the appropriate department or dean’s office.
  • Select courses ahead of time using the “Wish List” feature in Student Self Service.  Adding classes to the Wish List does not enroll a student into classes – it is only the first step.  Students are not automatically enrolled from the Wish List.
  • Enroll using MaineStreet during the scheduled appointment times. Courses that require instructor or special permission need to be added by contacting the department offering the course.
  • Some courses will allow students to add themselves to a Wait List. Although each student on a Wait List is assigned a position number, that number does not necessarily represent the order in which students may be enrolled should openings in the class occur. Additional information can be found at Wait Lists.
  • If problems are encountered during the enrollment process, contact your academic department/college or the Office of Student Records by calling 581.1288, or send an email to umrecord@maine.edu.

Additional registration information is available in the online Undergraduate Catalog under “Enrollment Status.”
