Tuition and Course Information

To take a course at Senior College you must be a member, except for the summer session. The annual membership fee is $25; the current membership year extends from September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018. The fee for each six week course is $35, and the one or two day special classes are $30.

During all classes, a break with snack is provided, but if you are attending a one-day special class, you should bring lunch, or pick up something locally if time permits.

To become a member and/or register for a course, you have 3 options.

  • Online: Fill out our convenient online membership and class registration form. Class registration is optional.
  • By Mail: Download the membership and registration form, and then mail it in along with your check payable to Senior College to:
    Senior College, UMaine Hutchinson Center
    80 Belmont Avenue
    Belfast, Maine 04915.
  • In Person: You may stop by the Hutchinson Center on Thursdays between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to enroll or register at the Senior College office.

Note: Some of these courses will fill very fast, so get your registration in as soon as possible. Calling and indicating an interest will not save your seat. To be fair to all, we must have your check in hand before we can enroll you in a course.
