What types of courses/programs are available?

We offer courses in a variety of disciplines. Some of these courses are introductory and give you the opportunity to explore a program of study or discipline before making a commitment to apply for admission. If you are working toward teacher certification, exploring a career change, or simply pursuing an area of interest, we will be happy to help you find the courses you need.

What are the Early College programs offered over the summer?

Every summer, UNE offers high school juniors and seniors from across the country the opportunity to earn 3 college credits in two or three weeks by studying a field that interests them. As an Early College student, you may live in a dorm or commute from home during your course of study. Each program includes exciting academic and recreational field trips. See the UNE Early College Program Brochure.

  • As an Early College Coastal Marine Ecology student, you get an overview of the Marine Sciences and Environmental Studies, work in a state-of-the-art research facility, and study marine ecosystems in the lab and in the field.
  • As an Early College Neuroscience student, you learn from top UNE neuroscientists who open up their laboratories and provide lectures in this highly competitive program. You study such topics as cellular anatomy and function, drug effects and pharmacology, animal behavior, and philosophical implications of neuroscience research.
  • As an Early College Creative Writing student, you focus on writing poetry, as you refine your poetic style and build a writing portfolio with UNE English faculty and guest writers. Recent visiting writers included Maine Poet Laureate Wesley McNair and Director of the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance, Joshua Bodwell.
  • As an Early College Pre-Law/Trial Advocacy student, you enroll in a unique pre-law program that introduces the American legal system through the study of case law and through the use of a mock trial. You take on roles of attorneys and witnesses and present your case in front of practicing attorneys.

What is a non-matriculated student?

If you are a non-matriculated student, it means that you may take credit-bearing courses but that you have not applied for and been formally granted admission to a school or college at either the undergraduate or graduate level. As a non-matriculated student, you may take courses for professional or personal development, to transfer credits to another university or college, or eventually to enter an undergraduate or graduate degree program. You must be matriculated to receive a degree. A maximum of 12 credits earned while a non-matriculated student at the University of New England may be accepted toward a degree at the University.
