Honors Living Learning Community

The Honors Living Learning Community is for intellectually curious students, with diverse backgrounds and interests, who have been invited to join the USM Honors Program. Living in Honors housing provides students with convenient access to Honors-specific events and organizations.

Students with a 3.5 or higher GPA, at the high school or transfer level, are invited to join the Honors Program. Students who accept the invitation to join the Honors Program may choose to live in Honors housing for Fall 2021 in Anderson Hall (first-year) or Philippi Hall (upper-class). Living in Honors housing is encouraged but not required.

Honors First-Year Students will take an Honors COR class that connects with an Honors seminar class. The activities and outings that students will participate in during their COR vary widely depending on the topic of the seminar course. If you have any questions about the COR offerings and typical activities for a specific topic area, please don't hesitate to contact us at or at 207-780-5240. For questions about the Honors seminar course offerings, please contact the Honors department or connect with your academic advisor.
