The Maine Senior College Network



The Maine Senior College Network (MSCN), which began in 1997 at the University of Southern Maine in Portland, is currently a consortium of 17 independent groups from York County to Fort Kent.

There are no tests, no papers, and no grades, each senior college group plans exciting, intellectually stimulating non-credit courses (taught by volunteers) and special learning opportunities for adults over the age of 50. Senior colleges charge between $25 to $35 for annual membership, plus an additional very modest tuition for each course. Scholarships are available.

The Maine Senior College Network is housed in the Wishcamper Campus Center at the University of Southern Maine (USM) in Portland, Maine. Contact the network office at (207) 780-4128 if you have questions about the MSCN and its programs.
