Adults represent a large and growing portion of University of Maine System enrollment (36% of all degree students and 61% of non-degree students). Our returning adult students take advantage of the flexible delivery options which include: online, hybrid, intensive/weekend, videoconference, multi-campus, and collaborative degrees.
We recognize the value of life experience. The University of Maine System offers non-traditional ways of obtaining credit through Prior Learning Assessment – credit for life and work experience, CLEP and DSST (DANTES) credit, and challenge exams.
Previous credits from regionally accredited institutions generally do not expire! Some majors may require that coursework be updated in order to be current in the field. As always, our transfer advisors are ready to assist you individually (see contacts).
