The University of Southern Maine will host an open house for adult, transfer and graduate students from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 13 in the Abromson Community Education Center, 88 Bedford St. in Portland. Parking is free in the adjoining garage.
USM has many students who do not fit the traditional model: Forty percent of USM students are over 25, half have transferred from other colleges, and one third attend part-time. This Open House is designed to be a welcoming first step for non-traditional students and help them find the educational path at USM that is right for them.
Representatives from academic programs will be on hand to discuss degree possibilities at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Student service 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.
