The University College Center at Rumford/Mexico brings more than 600 courses every semester to the students who would not otherwise be able to drive to or live on a campus. Part of the University of Maine System, the Center provides student support and technology necessary for student success. More than 46 university degrees and more than 28 certificates can be earned at the Center located at 13 Brown Street, Mexico, and at ITV sites in Farmington, Rangeley, Kingfield, and Jay.
Students experience class in a variety of ways: On site with an instructor in the classroom; interactive live-television lectures (ITV); live video conferencing (VC); asynchronous courses (Online); courses which are half Online and half ITV/VC; and Videostreaming, which is an online, web-accessible replay of class lectures that have been delivered on ITV. The majority of video-streamed classes may be viewed anywhere/any time, which has been tremendously popular with students who are mostly nontraditional, and either have families, or jobs, or both.
Personalized student services at the Rumford Center include professional advising and assistance with the application process, including financial aid, on-site testing, course selections, substitutions, and waivers, creating individually designed programs, tutoring and more.
