University College offers access to courses and programs from the seven universities at dozens of locations and online. More than three thousand Maine people take courses and work toward degrees at University College off-campus outreach centers and sites each semester.
At eight University College Centers, students choose from more than 400 courses taught by faculty on-site, via interactive television, videoconference and through online instruction.
University College also offers courses at dozens of community sites. Located largely in high schools throughout Maine, these sites allow students to take any of the hundreds of university courses offered over interactive television and the Web each semester. A site coordinator monitors classrooms, collects and distributes materials, proctors exams and records class tapes for review.
