Adult Degree Completion Programs & Services at University College at Rockland

By University College at Rockland | Feb 21, 2013
URock helps local residents who have some college but no degree get back on track to finish.

It's estimated that as many as 200,000 Mainers have earned some college credits but, for one reason or another, have never completed a degree. For some, earning that credential could make a significant difference in their career advancement. For others it would mark an important personal accomplishment. University College at Rockland not only offers flexible degree programs that accept previously-earned college credits and work experience, professionals at the Center support students as they work toward their goals.

Programs that allow students to bring in credits from other institutions and from work or military experience include B.A. in Liberal Studies and Bachelor of Applied Science degrees from the University of Maine at Augusta.  Bachelor of University Studies programs from the University of Maine and the University of Maine at Fort Kent encourage students to design an individualized program based on their education and goals. The University of Maine at Machias and the University of Southern Maine also offer online degree completion options.

Students wishing to complete a degree are helped by a growing selection of online and other distance learning courses available from the UMS campuses.  Each semester, University College at Rockland offers almost 700 courses that can be applied to dozens of additional degree programs from the University of Maine System. To help students succeed, the center offers personalized support services, including tutoring, financial aid assistance, and career counseling.
