Access to MaineStreet

  • The directions for accessing MaineStreet and email can be found here.
  • To activate your account or change your password, go to

When students apply for admission to UMF, they are sent an ID number, activation code and user ID to set up a MaineStreet account. Once a password is set up, students use their user ID (typically their firstname.lastname) and password to access the MaineStreet portal. In MaineStreet they can track the progress of their application, receive information and messages about financial aid, and eventually see their class schedule. Please encourage them to activate the account and check it frequently.

Applicants also receive a “” email account that is associated with their application and MaineStreet account. It is imperative that they check that email as various offices on campus (including faculty) will begin communicating with them through their University email account. They also may forward the emails coming to their “” address to an address they check frequently.
