What is College Transitions ?
We are defining Maine College Transition Programs as comprehensive, integrated or sequential courses of study leading to enrollment in a post secondary institution. MCTP are offered through local adult education programs.
Are All Maine College Transition programs the same ?
No. Each program has certain characteristics that are the same. Two models are :
Cohort model – all students enter the program at the same time and continue to work together through the program. Schedules may be one full day per week or two evenings per week or possibly two morning or afternoon sessions.
Menu of services. Classes and services are offered at a variety of times and locations. Students work with the adult college transitions counselor to plan their schedules and complete course requirements.
Can someone just enroll in a college preparation class ? Algebra or Writing for example ?
Yes. Many adult education programs offer college preparation classes as part of their program.
I have a great idea for a new course !
What do I do ? Who do I tell ?
We are always open to suggestions for new courses. If you would like to propose a new course and maybe even be an instructor for that course, please contact our program’s office.
How do I pay for my classes ?
Register online : Some courses are available for online registration. For those payments, we accept MasterCard, Visa, and American Express.
Register by mail : If you register by mail, you may pay by personal check or money order.
Register by phone : If you register by phone, payment by check or money order will need to reach our office by the start date for the course.

How will I know if a class is full ?
If you have mailed in your registration for a class which was already full, you will be contacted and given the option to be placed on the waiting list for that class.
If you register in person, you’ll immediately know the status of the class.
If you search for classes online, you will know because the web page will say “Course Full ” and give you the option of subscribing to the waiting list.
