The registration system for USM Professional Development Programs (PDP) is different from MaineStreet which is used for USM Academic Programs. You will access the PDP system through this website and use it to find information about classes, register for classes, and track your classes.

Please contact us if you experience any problems with the website. If you are contacting us outside business hours someone will get back to you as soon as possible during the next business day.
