Academic Flexibility: Yet again with this not being the main campus it does make the class choices much harder, this being because we don't have a lot of class rooms compared to the amount of class that are held. It would be nice with they were able to have at least two different time periods for some classes. For an example my Physics II class next semester there is only one slot and its a hard time for me to get there.

Academic Flexibility: I have had a wonderful experience with the staff here. I feel that they really go out of their way to make sure my needs are met and that I understand what is going on. I have had people go above-and-beyond for me here and I appreciate it. SMCC transferred credits I needed to apply toward my Associate's degree and they have a form where you can see exactly which classes transferred to meet which degree requirements. Because of this, I am graduating much sooner than I expected. When registering for classes, I always see a night option (or many) available and I think this school must be great for working students.

Academic Flexibility: I was able to take classes around my work so I'm able to keep an income while earning my degree. I've heard it's easy to transfer credits within the state of Maine. I plan on going to the University of Maine in Orono for Pre-Vet. I hope all my credits transfer (I'm pretty much counting on it).

Academic Flexibility: I think there is quite a bit of flexibility with electives - you could probably take something from a technical program

if it interested you. They are working on articulation agreements in the region, so that should be helping people transferring to a bachelor's. I had all necessary credit transferred accepted to two private schools I applied to. It is an accredited school, so there shouldn't be any unwarranted surprises there. This is a two year school, but I was able to take some 300-level courses through a local exchange agreement. Were I starting again today, I would focus more on honors courses (they didn't have them when I started) and the exchange classes.

Academic Flexibility: They offer a variety of times for most of their classes. A select few however only have one time available and that is rather annoying.
