- The State of Maine provides grants for a college preparation program in each of her counties. While designs are a bit different each program provide services to prepare Maine adults for post secondary education.
- The Hancock County College Transitions program has two semesters starting in September and February. All courses are scheduled for Tuesdays from 8:30am-4:30pm at the Hancock County Higher Education Center in the rear of the Mill Mall at 240 State Street in Ellsworth. There is an admissions process that starts with a meeting with one of our student advisors, Ander Thebaud firstname.lastname@example.org (422-4794) or Laura Bryant email@example.com (422-4794.)
- Our College Transitions program is available at no cost to students thanks to a grant from the State of Maine and in kind support from the University of Maine and the Maine Educational Opportunity Center.
We are always open to suggestions for new courses. If you would like to propose a new course and maybe even be an instructor for that course, contact our program’s office.
