Academ-e Orientation Aug. 28

The Division of Lifelong Learning expects to welcome nearly 200 of Maine’s brightest high school students at Academ-e Orientation 2018 on Aug. 28 at Wells Conference Center. Academ-e is the University of Maine’s Early College program. Through a partnership between the Maine Department of Education and the University of Maine System, tuition is waived for all qualified high school students in Maine to cover full tuition for up to 12 college credits per year. Students across the state can benefit from the flexibility and variety of live (in Belfast and Orono) and online courses offered this fall.
