UMA Rockland Has a Line Up of Late Start College Classes for Fall

UMA Rockland has late start college classes in Sept and Oct.

The University of Maine at Augusta Rockland Center has a roster of 16 college classes with September and October start dates.

These courses will run for either a ten-week or 7-week semester and each carries 3 college credits. The academic work is a bit more condensed than courses which run in the normal 15-week term.

Each of the late start classes is fully online. Many are introductory courses to help new college students on a path to success.

"We recognize that some of our interested students were still working summer jobs or busy transitioning to the fall when our regular semester started in late August. These classes allow interested students to still participate this fall and not miss out," said UMA Rockland Director Deborah Meehan.


The list of courses is as follows:

CIS 100 Intro to Computer Applications starts 10/29

COM 102 Interpersonal Communications starts 9/14

EDU 100 Intro to Teacher Education starts 10/29

ENG 101 College Writing starts 9/14

ENG 102W Intro to Literature starts 10/29

HUS 101 Intro to Human Services starts 10/29

UMA transforms the lives of students of every age and background across the State of Maine and beyond through access to high-quality distance and on-site education, excellence in student support, civic engagement, and professional and liberal arts programs.
