Houlton Higher Education Center

Summer project edited-3 smWelcome to the Houlton Higher Education Center, UMPI's only off-campus learning site.

Since 2001, the Houlton Center has been providing educational opportunities to the people of southern Aroostook County, northern Penobscot County, eastern Washington County, western New Brunswick, Canada, and beyond. Administered by the University of Maine at Presque Isle, the Houlton Higher Education Center has seven educational partners, including University College, Northern Maine Community College, the Houlton/Hodgdon SAD 29/70 Adult Education Program, the Carleton Project, TRiO College Access Services, and Maine Education Opportunities Commission.

Since its creation, the Houlton Center has helped many students earn their bachelor's and associate's degrees from the University of Maine at Presque Isle -- located about 40 miles north of the Houlton Center -- while staying close to home.
