University College logoThe VOICES website was created by University College, the distance education branch of the University of Maine System. Our goal is to help potential and current students identify a meaningful career pathway that will prepare them to succeed in higher education. This site and all of its resources are free and available for use by anyone. Participants are under no obligation to attend classes at or apply to the University of Maine System.

University College Outreach Centers are dynamic hubs of higher education in Maine communities where students are supported to network, collaborate and learn together.  People of all ages come together, both face-to-face and through innovative web applications, to participate in programs from the University of Maine System and from other institutions. This rich community resource supports both students and employers, serving as a vital engine of regional economic growth.

Live chat is available Monday – Friday 10:00 am – 2:00 pm EST
