Houlton Higher Education Center

Welcome 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 houses six educational partners, including UMA at Houlton, Northern Maine Community College, the Houlton/Hodgdon RSU 29/70 Adult Education Program, TRiO College Access Services, and Maine Education Opportunities Commission. 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 Maine at Presque Isle — located about 40 miles north of the Houlton Center — while staying close to home. The University offers classes at the Houlton Center towards Associate and Bachelor degrees in the areas of Business, English, History, Liberal Studies, and Psychology.
