Our Difference

We offer online and distance learning with a unique commitment to personalized service.

University College supports University of Maine System students and faculty involved in learning and teaching off-campus.  We’ve helped thousands of people connect to courses and degree programs in their homes and communities. At University College, we can help you:

Earn the credentials you need to move forward. Turn  years of experience in your profession into a degree that may land you a promotion.

Begin a new career. With dozens of fully-accredited university degree programs now conveniently available, it is easier than ever to pursue the career of your dreams.

Succeed in college. Our professionals are experts at helping students get started in college and in giving them the support they need to reach their educational goals.

Work at your own pace from your own place. Online classes give you the flexibility to work where and whenever you choose.

Connect with a learning community. Information technology allows you to interact with instructors and classmates in more depth than is possible in larger, more traditional classroom settings.

Save money. Distance learning lets you save on transportation, housing, and food costs. And you can keep your full or part-time job, too.
