Scholarships Available to Start College this Fall at URock

Scholarships are available for first time and returning students at UMA Rockland. Classes start September 3.

First time college students, or those with less than 30 credits who have been out of college for at least 3 years, are eligible to receive college scholarships to begin an academic program this fall at UMA Rockland.

According to staff at the UMA Rockland Center, the application process is easy and help is available. Scholarships help students get through the first college course and pay tuition, fees and books so there are no out-of-pocket expenses for the student.

"We find this first, easy experience can be very motivating. Students realize that college courses can fit into their lives around family and/or jobs, and it gives them the confidence to keep going," said UMA Rockland Director, Deborah Meehan.

The university semester begins on Tuesday, September 3. With over 40 degrees and certificate programs available in Rockland, popular programs include Nursing, Medical Laboratory Technology, Business Administration, Computer Information Systems, Justice Studies and Liberal Arts. Courses are taught live onsite, via videoconferencing technology, interactive television and online. These modalities allow students optimum flexibility. There are hundreds of university courses available at UMA Rockland this fall.

Free academic advising appointments are available by calling UMA Rockland at 596-6906.  Professional staff are available to meet with interested students and to create a plan that fits their needs.
