Dual Enrollment & Advanced Placement

University of Maine at Presque Isle Credit

Under a Partnership Agreement with the University of Maine at Presque Isle (UMPI), MSSM students may receive college credit for many of their MSSM classes. An MSSM student who wishes to receive UMPI credit for an MSSM course must be matriculated and deemed eligible for any relevant coursework according to MSSM's placement procedures.

Associate's Degree Program
Students interested in pursuing a dual degree should notify their advisor who will arrange a meeting with the MSSM College Counselor. As part of that process students will develop a plan that will specify the courses required at each institution, with equivalent courses noted, to earn an Associate of Arts at UMPI and a diploma at MSSM. In the weeks following graduation from MSSM, students who have successfully completed all qualifications for the Science and Mathematics concentration within the Liberal Studies plan of study (minimum of 64 UMPI credit hours or their equivalent) shall receive an Associate of the Arts degree from UMPI.

    • Student Enrollment Concurrent enrollment is initiated via ExplorEC, the portal for Early College at Maine's Public Universities. Once students register through the Early College program, they can select from a list of available UMPI/MSSM Dual Enrollment courses.
    • Reporting of Grades The instructor of each UMPI concurrent enrollment course will submit their grades to MSSM by the regular deadline established by MSSM. Within seven business days of that deadline, the MSSM Registrar will report the grades of each student enrolled in each UMPI approved course to the UMPI Registrar.
    • Student Services Concurrent enrollment students will have access to all college academic and student support services including, but not limited to libraries, electronic library resources, writing centers, tutorial services, assessment, admissions, and academic advisement. Some services are available only on UMPI’s campus. Concurrent enrollment students will be issued a free UMPI ID card that is good for 3 years, a replacement charge for lost ID's will be assessed. Students have the option of purchasing a $45 semester sticker to utilize the Gentile Hall facilities. Students with disabilities may be provided services as identified by their IEP through the high school. At no time may accommodations exceed those offered by UMPI as a college-level course, or exceed those allowable by law.
    • Transcripts MSSM students wishing to receive transcripts of their UMPI credits may do so by submitting a Transcript Request to the UMPI Registrar’s Office.
    • Leaves of Absence/Withdrawals MSSM will notify the UMPI Registrar in writing if a student is granted a leave of absence or withdraws from an UMPI concurrent enrollment course. If the student does so prior to UMPI MSSM’s deadline for add/drop withdrawing from a class, then the UMPI Registrar will not enter a grade for the course. If the student does so after UMPI MSSM’s deadline, then the UMPI Registrar will assign a “W/grade” for the course.
    • Financial Considerations Each student seeking to receive UMPI credit for an UMPI-approved course taught at MSSM will pay $20 per credit hour to UMPI through the MSSM business office. Aside from this fee, UMPI will charge no further fees.

University of New England (UNE) Transfer Partnership Program

In this partner program, MSSM students who earn college credit with Maine School of Science and Mathematics Advanced Placement (AP) courses and transfer credits from University of Maine at Presque Isle (UMPI) get a head start on a bachelor’s degree at the University of New England.

By completing designated AP and UMPI courses students receive priority consideration for admission and merit scholarships to enter with sophomore standing at the University of New England. The information that follows is taken directly from the UNE Partnership Program flyer.

Qualifying scores necessary to receive credit for advanced placement are recommended by the academic departments and are approved by the University Registrar. They are treated as transfer credit in accordance with the following table.
