The University of Maine at Augusta Rockland Center, on Camden Street, is still accepting students wishing to start or return to college this spring semester. The term begins January 22.

“In addition to new college admits, we also welcome high school students who want to try ‘early college’ this spring term. They will earn both high school and college credit simultaneously, free of charge,” said UMA Rockland’s director, Deborah Meehan. Meehan noted that the center also serves those who are returning or starting college with support from generous scholarship programs. Newly admitted students can still apply and receive financial aid for the spring term. According to Meehan, studies show that 65 percent of all new jobs require some post-secondary education.
