Earn college credits while still in high school.

The Office of Early College offers three distinct programs that allow qualified juniors and seniors to earn college credit while still in high school; High School Aspirations, Dual Enrollment and the Bridge Year Program. Students are exposed to the rigors of college academics and also receive added layers of support and guidance from their high school and the University.

UMA’s statewide presence and institutional mission steeped in access uniquely position the Office of Early College to meet students where they are.

In addition to the Augusta and Bangor campuses, UMA is in your community with over 30 sites & centers. Students can also take advantage of a wide variety of courses offered fully online.
