USM has options for busy people.

At USM we can help you find the time to finish your degree, take a class, or learn a new professional skill.  As an adult, it's tough to fit school into a life full of work and family responsibilities. At Professional and Continuing Education we're flexible. We have options that work for you  - online, in the evening, on weekends -  fall, winter, spring, and summer. 

Here's what you can accomplish at USM:
  • Finish your degree.
    For many people, an undergraduate degree is unfinished business - life happened on the way to graduation. At USM we offer bachelor completion programs, both online and on campus, designed for adult students with busy lives. Connect with an Enrollment Counselor today to get started.

  • Take a course at USM.
    USM offers courses year-round. You can take courses at USM even if you haven’t been admitted to a degree program. Take a class to fulfill job requirements, prepare to enter a degree program, or advance your career. USM welcomes all students. Call our office at 780-5900 and we'll help you register.

  • Advance your career.
    Workshops and professional development certificate programs offer short, intensive boosts to your career . The focus is on current information and practical skills that you can learn today and apply tomorrow.

  • Earn or maintain a credential.
    We offer training and test prep in Human Resources, Project Management, or Lean Six Sigma to help you earn and renew your certification.
