Enrollment in an institution of higher education offers individuals the opportunity to advance their education and meet their intellectual and vocational goals. There are various opportunities for post-secondary enrollment across the state, including Maine’s public university and community college systems, private universities and colleges, and licensed for-profit schools which offer vocational and workforce training.
The Higher Education team works with the State Board of Education in reviewing post-secondary requests for degree-granting authority and supports the assessment and approval of educator preparation programs in Maine to ensure the advancement of quality educator candidates. The team also oversees the licensing of for-profit and correspondence schools in Maine, and fulfills transcript requests for certain closed post-secondary institutions in the state.
