Career Exploration

Maine’s Public Universities are proud to offer Early College Career Exploration Pathways that guide students as they learn about majors and career options. Upon completion, students will earn a designation on their university transcript, and may have a jump start on some programs when they enroll in college.

A wide variety of career exploration opportunities are currently available at University of Maine, University of Maine at Augusta, University of Maine at Fort Kent, and University of Maine at Machias. Some programs are online and can be accessed by students state-wide. Other programs are location specific and require some on-campus courses.

Credits with Purpose

It is important to make sure students choose their courses with intention. There are many benefits of early college, however, credits without a purpose can have unintended impacts on college plans. Learn more on why it is important to chose credits with purpose.
