     Becoming a member of Midcoast Senior College is easy. You must be 50 years of age or older to become a member. Your spouse or partner may also become a member and register regardless of age. There is no admission procedure. The academic year $35 membership fee can be paid at any time, although most members pay it when they register for courses in the fall or spring terms . You can be a year member without taking a course but MUST be registered for membership when you register for one or more courses. (see the current term’s course offerings here.)

     You do have to be a member to take Senior College courses, but you do not have to be a member to attend the public programs: the Winter or Summer Wisdom lecture series, the DaPonte String Quartet performance, Summer Excursions, and the Current Events Forum — are open to the general public, free of charge.

Membership has many advantages:

• attendance in classes of your choice (some courses have limited enrollment)

• enroll in courses at any Senior College in Maine.

• our newsletter, The Midcoast Inquirer, that is published three or four times each year.

• social interaction with other students

• participation at the annual Spring Luncheon and Business Meeting

• advance notice of special events

• opportunities for volunteering:  e.g., serving on a Committee and/or on the Board of Directors, assisting with program administration, and more
