Maine's Public Universities - University of Maine System

Life the way it should be


Shared Processing Center

The University of Maine System Shared Processing Center (SPC), established in 2006, provides consolidated services for admissions application processing and student loan collections.


Admissions Application Processing

The SPC processes undergraduate applications and all associated paperwork (transcripts, letters of recommendation, etc.) for all seven University of Maine System universities.

Graduate program applications are processed by the graduate admission offices at the University of Maine and the University of Southern Maine.

How Students Apply:

Students send applications to the SPC (see address below), and submit only one copy of transcripts, letters of recommendation, etc., to accompany their applications.

Applicants should complete a separate application form (paper or online) for each university to which they are applying. Students are strongly encouraged to apply online. Paper applications should be mailed to the SPC.

Application fees should be sent to the SPC, but can be combined into one check. Be sure to note the campus(es) and name of the applicant on the check or online payment voucher, payable to the University of Maine System. (Note: the application fee can also be delivered to the campus if desired.)

Guidance offices submit only one copy of a student’s transcript and each recommendation letter to the SPC. The credentials are imaged and electronically forwarded to each admission office at the universities to which the student has applied.

Student Loan Collections

Loan Processing and Receivables Management

The SPC manages the repayment process for Perkins, Nursing and Institutional loans for all seven University of Maine System universities. This repayment process includes exit interviews, repayment schedules, alternate payment arrangements, deferment and cancellation forms and default loan holds on student records.
