To register for a course and participate in members-only activities you must be a current MSC member or a current member of another Maine senior college. You must be 50 years of age or older to become a member. A spouse or partner may also become a member (and take classes) regardless of their age. The annual $35 non-refundable membership fee is from July 1 through June 30.
All courses are $60 per person. A $10 discount is given for two persons in the same household taking an on-line Zoom class together.
MSC offers confidential tuition waivers to its members from a scholarship fund. Please contact us if our fees are outside your budget. Simply send your request to email@example.com and we will reach out to you. There are no forms to complete.
Course Withdrawal and Cancellation Policy
Refunds are given for withdrawals made one week before the first class meets. If MSC cancels a course due to low enrollment or unforeseen circumstances you will receive a full refund of tuition. Membership fees are not reimbursed.
Classes are held at different locations in the community. Students are asked to practice social distancing, wear masks if required or desired, and stay home if feeling ill.
Hybrid classes are both in-person and on Zoom. If this option is available it will be noted in the course bulletin. Students will have the option of registering for either option.
Books & Readings
Course descriptions include information regarding books. “Required” book means strongly recommended, “Suggested” or “Recommended” books means these readings are optional. It is the student’s responsibility to acquire books.
Courses are offered in the Fall and Spring.
