You (or your partner/spouse) must be 50 years old in order for you to become a Senior College member. Your annual membership fee supports our overall mission and makes you a member of our community. You must be a member to take our regular courses during the Fall, Winter and Spring semesters.
Our normal membership fee is $25/year and runs from September 1st through August 31st of the following year.
If you are a member of another Maine Senior College you should pick that membership and indicate which other Senior College you are a member of. You do not have to pay for two memberships.
If you are already a member of the Senior College for 2022-2023 you will need to renew your membership before you can register for 2023-2024 courses. You can renew online, in person or by mail any time during the 2023-2024 year. (Call the office to find out details of the offline methods.)
To renew online, first be sure you have logged into this website which you can do at the top of this page. (Enter your email address and password.) Once you are logged in, on this page you will see a yellow banner above which tells you that you are already a member. That banner has a link to edit to your member profile.
NOTE: If you do not see that banner, either you are not a current member or you are not logged in.
When you click the link to edit your member profile on that banner, you will be shown a lot of details about your membership. There should be a blue banner prompting you to renew your membership. Click on the blue RENEW banner to start the online renewal process.
If you have taught any course in the preceding membership year you will be assigned a coupon number to use when renewing your membership. This discount coupon gives you free Senior College membership for the following year. When you have clicked RENEW as above, at the very bottom of your profile (under the Emergency Contact) there will be a place to enter a Discount Code. Enter your coupon number before clicking UPDATE AND NEXT.
You can update your own membership or contact record online if your address, phone number or other personal information changes. Be sure you are logged in at the top of this page. Once logged in, click on your name next to the LOGIN icon, then click View profile. At that point you can change your personal information as necessary after clicking the Edit prompt on the profile page. Be sure to save changes before leaving the page.
