Open registration for the shortened winter session, as well as for the full length spring semester, is ongoing at University College at Rockland. Any interested student may sign up for courses. There is no payment due at this time.

At University College at Rockland, a part of the University of Maine System, students in the Midcoast have access to hundreds of classes from all campuses of the University of Maine System.

Winter Session courses are condensed and may run for just three or four weeks, but cover the same material and earn the same number of credits as those that run for a typical 15-week semester. These courses are an excellent way to accelerate the pace to degree completion.

Spring semester courses, which begin Jan. 17, typically run 15 weeks. There are more than 900 courses available in this format from all seven campuses through University College at Rockland. Students may choose face-to-face classes, interactive television, videoconference or online formats.

Some scholarships are available, particularly for those who may have some college credits.
