About Summer University

Summer University is an integral part of the University of Maine.  Thousands take courses and participate in camps and conferences each summer! Courses are taught by the same faculty who teach during the academic year. Summer University is designed to meet the needs of regularly enrolled college students, educators throughout the state, and individuals who are looking for personal and professional growth opportunities in a variety of disciplines. Students at UMaine and other collegiate institutions can take advantage of Summer University to make up coursework, or to get ahead in their degree. Those not engaged in formal study but who wish to attend for general purposes, are also welcome to attend (some courses may have prerequisites). Credits earned in the summer may be counted towards a UMaine degree or towards requirements at other colleges and universities.

Summer University extends from May to August with many scheduling options.  We offer hundreds of courses on-campus, online, and via video conferencing as well as professional development opportunities and youth summer camps.

Meet your goals this summer at UMaine!
