How to Apply

International students attending Maine high schools may take up to 12 college credits per academic year at the new Early College rate. Students will pay a discounted tuition of $138.25 per credit compared to the standard rate of $309 per credit. Apply Now.

Students living abroad (non-US) need to complete this Application through the Office of International Programs. School Counselors will need to complete an approval form.

These are the same courses our undergraduate students may enroll in and meet many of the general education requirements. Students may choose courses that are delivered using online technologies by our world-class faculty or live on our main campus or one of our satellite hubs, such as Belfast or at local 4-H centers. 

Once students choose courses each semester, they may apply here.
