Think 30 – video transcript

When you enroll in college there’s so much to do. Study, learn by doing fieldwork or research, get a job. Leave a little time to have some fun or make a difference in the community.

As part of the UMaine experience we help you do all that – and more. Including Think30.

At the University of Maine we want students to complete their degrees in four years. That saves money and reduces student debt.

To finish in four, UMaine academic advisors can help students focus on completing 30 credit hours a year. Think 30 by taking classes on campus and online – in the spring and fall semesters and in summer and winter.

We’ve done the math. The sooner you graduate, the sooner you can start grad school or a career.

We know that students who graduate in four years have less debt. The average starting salary for a UMaine graduate with a B.A. degree is about $40,000. A student graduating in four years and starting a career could earn two or three annual paychecks rather than graduating in five or six years with even more debt.

So talk to your academic advisors. Take courses on campus and online. Both are offered year-round.

And remember to Think 30.
