Summer Session offers courses and programs to meet the needs of full-time,
part-time, day, evening, weekend, on-campus and distance students during the
months of May, June, July, and August. Serving degree and non-degree students,
Summer Session offers over 500 courses in three-week, five-week, six-week, and
eight-week calendars to those seeking educational experiences for personal
and/or professional growth.
Summer Session, established in 1895, is designed to meet the needs of regularly
enrolled college students, educators, and those seeking cultural and
professional growth in specific fields. Regularly enrolled students of the
University of Maine and other collegiate institutions likewise find an
opportunity to make up work they have missed during the regular school year or
to secure additional credits in anticipation of individual needs. Those not
engaged in formal study who desire to attend the session for general purposes
may do so when prerequisites are met. Credit earned in Summer Session is fully
recognized and may be counted toward the degrees that the University of Maine
confers or may be transferred to other colleges and universities.
To allow students the greatest degree of flexibility in scheduling, 7 three-week
sessions, 2 five-week sessions, 2 six-week sessions and 3 eight-week evening
sessions are scheduled between mid May and the end of August.
The Summer Session Office is located in 122 Chadbourne Hall, (207) 581-3144.
Students who are not matriculated in one of the colleges of the University may
receive academic advising in the Summer Session Office for planning their
