Houlton Higher Education Center

Welcome to the Houlton Higher Education Center, UMPI’s only off-campus location.

Since 2001, the Houlton Higher Education Center (HHEC) 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, HHEC also houses six additional educational partners, including UMA at Houlton, University of Maine Cooperative Extension, Northern Maine Community College, the Houlton/Hodgdon Adult & Community Education Program, TRiO College Access Services, and Maine Education Opportunity Center.  The University also hosts High School Aspirations, aimed at increasing the number of students who access and succeed in college.

Since its creation, the Houlton Center has helped many students earn their bachelor’s and associate’s degrees from the University of Presque Isle – located about 40 miles north of the Houlton Center – while staying close to home.  At the Houlton Center, the University offers Associate and Bachelor degrees in the areas of Criminal Justice, English, History, Liberal Studies, and Psychology, in addition to general education courses towards several other degree programs.
