Registration

     Information about fall semester courses  is enclosed in the June newsletter and published on our website.  Information about spring semester courses appears in the December newsletter and on our website.  Course information is also available at many other locations throughout the area.

     To register for courses, a student must be 50 years of age or older and a current member of Senior College.  The spouse or partner of a member may also join and register regardless of age.  To become a member, the membership fee established by the Board of Directors must be paid. To register for a course, the tuition established by the Board of Directors must be paid, or a tuition waiver must be obtained.

     Course Registrations for each semester begin on dates established by the Administration Committee.  Registration can be submitted online at our website, by phone, or walk in.  Mail-in registrations are not accepted.  The MSC office will be open from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM Monday – Friday to process registrations.   We will confirm all course registrations.

     Registrations in classes are made on a first-come, first-served basis.  Registration for a course is closed when the class limit has been reached.  Class size is limited according to the preference of the instructor and capacity of the classroom or venue.

      Register for as many courses as you wish.  Online registration is available for all courses by clicking on the “Register” button near the top and bottom of the course page. Registration is also available at the MSC office or by phone at 725-4900, but online registrations are preferred.  Registration for a course ends on the date that it begins its second session.

     A closed course will generate a waitlist.  Students should contact the office to be placed on a waitlist.  If a student withdraws from a filled class, that seat is offered to the next person on the waitlist.

     Closed courses will be indicated on the course page on this website. 

Refund Policy

  • If you withdraw from a course prior to the beginning of classes, you will receive a full refund of the course fee if you return the course books unused and unmarked.  The membership fee is nonrefundable.
  • If you withdraw from a course after its first class, you will not receive a refund, and the membership fee is nonrefundable.
  • If you are registered in a course that is cancelled, you may apply that tuition to an open course of your choosing, or receive a refund of the tuition fee and, if not registered for another course, of the membership fee.

Financial Aid

Limited tuition waivers are available for 2 classes per year (one per semester) per person.  To apply, send a letter to Midcoast Senior College, Attn: Chair, Admin Committee, 10 Tibbett’s Drive, Suite 210, Brunswick ME 04011.  If you prefer, you may e-mail it to us: info@midcoastseniorcollege.org.
