For Current Flagship Students

We are instituting a transition to remote instruction for our Residential Flagship Campus beginning Monday, March 30. As of this date, all Flagship classes will be taught remotely until further notice.
We will continue to evaluate and make decisions as new information comes in.
Classes will be delivered using Canvas, with the support of additional technology as determined by the instructor. Please consult the student resources page for more information.
Faculty will use Canvas and other technological tools and project-based learning experiences to address learning outcomes associated with laboratories and other skill-based courses. For more information regarding a lab in which you are enrolled for the spring semester, please consult your Canvas page and contact your professor. These details will become increasingly available as we near the start of remote instruction on March 30, 2020. Please consult the student resources page for more information.
If you have questions about a course, contact your instructor. For questions regarding your academic plan, contact your faculty advisor. For all other questions contact your staff liaison.
At this time, we are planning to move ahead with May Commencement as we have in past years. If there are changes in how we celebrate May Commencement, we will let you know.
This year, given that both students and faculty will be adjusting to learning and teaching remotely, we have decided to open Fall registration a bit later, and to extend the registration period as long as possible. Here is the new registration schedule:
  • Graduating Students: Open April 20 at 9 a.m., close April 22 at 4 p.m.
  • All other Seniors & Juniors: Open April 23 at 9 a.m., close April 26 at 4 p.m.
  • Freshmen & Sophomores: Open April 27 at 9 a.m., close April 29 at 4 p.m.
  • Opens up to all: April 30 at 9 a.m., open until July 30
The goal of this revised schedule is to give all students plenty of time to consult with their faculty advisor and plan their Fall semester course schedule. Registration will still occur in the student portal, and staff and faculty liaisons and advisors will still be standing by to help you through the process. We will continue to communicate with you as we approach April 20 about the services and support you can rely on to navigate registration successfully. Additional information can be found in the student resources section. If you have any questions, reach out to your advisor or staff liaison.
  • First class mail that’s on campus (along with any mail that comes for the remainder of break) will be forwarded to your home address. During this time, please contact friends/family/credit cards/vendors/banks, etc. and give them your new address.
  • Change your Amazon/Chewy/IPSY/Walmart (and anything you get by subscription) shipping address. These items will be returned to sender.
  • If you’re living in the area, please have your mail/packages delivered to your apartment, etc. This will ensure you continue to receive mail if the campus closes.
  • If you have any questions or concerns, contact Leigh Juskevice at 207-509-7208 or via email at ljuskevice@unity.edu.
If you still have belongings on campus, please contact Dean Phinney, to make arrangements. Students will be able to retrieve their belongings once the governor’s executive order is lifted. All residence halls have been locked and secured to protect student property.
All student services remain available. Contact your staff liaison with any questions or consult the student resources page for more information.
Consult the Internship FAQs here. We also encourage you to work with both Kristine McCallister, Internship Coordinator, and the organization that you’re working with this summer, to create a plan that meets the criteria. Until further notice, the deadline for all summer internships will remain the same.
If you are experiencing any feelings of uneasiness because of the current COVID-19 issues, we encourage you to reach out to Therapist Assisted Online (TAO) or to contact the Wellness Center where our team of counselors will support you.
Fall 2020 is scheduled to open as planned.
