What is the difference between a University College Center and a site?
Expand AnswerHide Answer

A University College Center acts as an extension of a University of Maine System campus. Students can receive many of the same services they receive at a campus. Some services include: course registration, advising and student services, student activities, and a full computer lab equipped with Internet access for student use.

A site is a local high school or adult education program which contracts with the University of Maine System to serve as a receive site for courses. It is equipped with at least one computer equipped with Internet access for student use, and a site coordinator is on hand to proctor exams and to make sure correspondence between student and instructor is mailed and received.
