UMA Rockland Still Accepting Applications for Spring Semester Starting January 22
The University of Maine at Augusta Rockland Center is still accepting students wishing to start or return to college this spring semester. The term begins January 22.
"In addition to new college admits, we also welcome high school students who want to try "early college" this spring term. They will earn both high school and college credit simultaneously free of charge," said Rockland's Director Deborah Meehan.
Meehan noted that the Center also serves those who are returning or starting college with support from generous scholarship programs. Newly admitted students can still apply and receive financial aid for the spring term.
"It's very busy at URock right now but we are still happy to work with students no matter where they are in their path to college success," Meehan added."It's not too late."
Meehan noted that despite full employment in our area, individuals still see the value of pursuing a college education to get ahead and to be competitive in the job market. Studies show that 65% of all new jobs require some post secondary education.
