Get Started

Ready to enroll in a course or degree program?

Admission: Apply for admission by filling out the application and submitting your $40 application fee. Remember, if you are planning to apply for financial aid, it is necessary to have admissions complete before any financial aid is applied to your account.

Immunization Information & Form: Part of the admissions process is to submit a completed immunization form with doctor’s signature to the South Paris office or file a waiver form.

Placement Test: This test involves a computerized exam which takes approximately 2 hours to complete. A student is tested on Math, Reading, and Writing skills. This must be taken as a part of the admissions part in order to place you into the appropriate level of courses.

Advising: During the admissions process, it is a good idea to set up an appointment to meet with an advisor, who will help you set your goals and choose the most efficient way to acquire these goals.  Advising is available at any point in your academic career when you feel you need help or guidance in meeting these goals.  To schedule and advising session with Jim Bradley, Student Services Coordinator,  call 1-888-677-3377 or email


The High School Aspirations Program raises the educational aspirations of Maine’s youth. High school students may take university courses tuition free which count towards both college and high school credit.

Eligible Students
Maine students currently attending Maine public high schools.

Students must have school approval, parental approval, a minimum high school GPA of B or better, and junior or senior standing.

All students in the High School Aspirations Program are required to take placement tests, or to have recent SAT scores to assure best course placement.

Course Load
Students can take any academic course for which they have met the prerequisites as long as there is space available in the course. Students may enroll in a maximum of two courses (6 credits) per semester during their junior and senior years. The Maine Department of Education will pay half of the tuition for one 3-credit course per semester (if funds are available). The university will waive half of the tuition for two courses or up to 6-credit hours. The Maine Department of Education does not pay half of the tuition for home-schooled, or private school students.

The program is limited to courses taught by face-to-face  instruction during the regular academic year (i.e. fall and spring semesters only).
