Welcome to our Early College portal, where you can discover the opportunities that UMPI provides to save you money and time on your college degree and enrich your learning experiences. We provide dual-enrollment with a growing number of Maine high schools, which allow their students to earn college credit for specific, approved courses. These courses will also satisfy requirements for your high school diploma. We also offer Aspirations, an early college program providing access to UMPI’s 100 and 200 level courses either online or at UMPI. Students are allowed up to 6 credit hours per semester for Aspirations and/or dual enrollment courses for the cost of fees only. An additional reduced tuition charge may be applied for students that exceed 6 hours cumulatively per semester. With both of these programs, students earn college credit, have a University transcript, and get an early start on their college degree.
