The University of Southern Maine will host an “Open House for Adult, Transfer and Graduate Students” from 4:30-6:30 p.m., Wednesday, November 13, in the Abromson Community Education Center, 88 Bedford St., Portland. Parking is free in the adjoining garage.
Representatives from academic programs will be on hand to discuss degree possibilities at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Student Services representatives will be available to help potential students begin to find a way to achieve their goals and fit education into their busy lives.
Hosted by USM Undergraduate Admission, Graduate Admissions and Professional and Continuing Education, this event is part of a concerted effort to help more people with some college experience complete a degree. We also want to remind those interested in expanding their education that pursuing their master’s degree at USM is a viable and competitive option.
USM has many students who don’t fit the traditional model: one third of USM students are over 25, half have transferred from other colleges, and one third attend part time. The Open House is designed to be a welcoming first step for nontraditional students and help them find the educational path that is right for them.
