Basic skills courses, sometimes referred to as developmental courses, are available to help students increase their proficiency in college-level reading, writing, and mathematics. The Placement Testing Program is designed to identify students needing brush-up course work in one or more of these areas. Basic skills courses do not carry degree program credit. Financial aid can pay for these courses. Contact: Enrollment Services in Augusta or Bangor or student services coordinator at your center.
