Registration is underway for the UMS spring semester, which begins in January. College professionals recommend that people thinking about entering college meet with an advisor before selecting courses. Career considerations, financial aid application, and placement testing typically take more time and attention than people may realize. University College at Rockland encourages potential students to contact the Center to schedule a time to discuss their career and educational goals.

An advisor can help a student navigate the processes of academic life and can provide an important source of guidance throughout that student’s college experience

Topics routinely discussed at an advising session include:

  • Admission information, degree offerings, and  transfer questions
  • Financial aid information
  • Disability services information and referral
  • Early study for high school students
  • Prior learning assessment and advanced placement credit
  • Placement testing
  • Tutoring, study skills, note taking, test anxiety
  • Career decision-making and resources
  • Personal support and referral

Each semester, University College at Rockland offers access to hundreds of courses leading to dozens of degree and certificate programs from the University of Maine System campuses. Degrees in education, health and human services, business, nursing, library science, counseling, and the liberal arts can be completed locally at the Rockland Center and online.

For more information about programs and courses and to set up an advising session, please contact University College at Rockland at 596-6906 or visit .
